The Pentagon said that the weapons were designed to deliver conventional warheads
On nuclear weapons it is not.
USA Sunday, August 18, tested a new cruise land-based missiles. The missile was launched from the island of San Nicolas in the Pacific ocean near California, reports CNN.
The missile was launched from “land-based mobile launchers and accurately hit the target after more than 500 km of the flight,” said the Pentagon.
The Lieutenant Colonel of armed forces of the United States Charles Gleason said: “the Ministry of defence has carried out a flight test of winged land-based missiles with non-nuclear warheads on Sunday off the West coast of the United States. At the moment we are evaluating the test results”.
Also, the military said separately that the missile was designed to deliver conventional, not nuclear warheads.
The test of Americans of sophisticated weapons has alarmed the Russian government. In Russia was followed by hysterical and panicky statements that the characteristics of the new American missiles, allegedly, are in breach to terminate the Agreement on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty).
Note that the US formally withdrew from the INF Treaty on 2 August. While Washington blames the Kremlin, which, as the Americans claim, did not comply with the contract.
Recall that the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range and shorter-range was signed by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan on 8 December 1987 in Washington. The Treaty entered into force on 1 June 1988.
In the Russian press noted that Vladimir Putin, August 5, instructed to follow the further steps the United States, noting that in the case that the United States will begin the production of relevant systems, Russia will be forced to begin full-scale development of similar missiles.
