Russia Launches New Mosquito Supersonic Anti-Ship Missile

The Mosquito is a Russian supersonic low-altitude cruise missile, designed to take on ships and other above-water vessels with a displacement of up to 20,000 tons.

It’s the only supersonic missile in the world, capable of reaching Mach 2.8 (around 3,400kph), while travelling at ultra-low altitudes.

The four-ton missile spreads its wings after launching, goes up, and then descends to 20 meters above-surface as it quickly approaches the target. The impact takes place at an altitude of just seven meters
