Russia Conducted a Hypersonic Weapons Test

On October 25 2016 the Strategic Rocket Forces carried out a successful test launch of an UR-100NUTTH/SS-19 missile from the Dombarovskiy basing area. The missile was launched at 11:58 MSK (08:58 UTC). According to a ministry of defense representative, the payload was "successfully delivered" to the Kura test site in Kamchatka.

This is probably another test of the Project 4202 hypersonic vehicle, similar to that conducted in April 2016.
