In his earlier address last year to the Federal Assembly, President Vladimir Putin touted a number of new additions to Russia’s strategic weapons arsenal. His list included a nuclear-armed autonomous torpedo, hypersonic glide vehicles, and a nuclear-powered cruise missile. This vehicle recently exploded in a test run with catastrophic results. Some of these projects were long in the works, and well-known globally. Others were more of a surprise. What is the actual status of these systems? How developed are they, and exactly how long until they are fully developed? What realistic impact will they really have on the strategic balance between the United State and Russia?
