Description: The Burevestnik, 'Stormbringer' in English and previously known as Global Cruise Missile, is a small supersonic cruise missile provided with artificial intelligence (AI) to evade missile defenses. The missile has intercontinental range in excess of 10,000+ kilometers (probably close to 20,000 kilometers) and may be equipped with a nuclear warhead. The missile existence was confirmed by President Putin on March 1, 2018. The missile is fired from a ground facility and is directed autonomously to its intended target flying at low altitude avoiding both obstacles and missile defenses following an unpredictable trajectory. The key element of the cruise missile is a nuclear power unit which allegedly provides unlimited range. The missile is expected to follow any trajectory to reach its intended target. The first test firing of the Global Cruise Missile occurred in late 2017.
