    So it suggests that they are working with high energy propellants and scramjet motors... would be interesting developments for small arms development too.

    Imagine a long range sniper bullet that actually got faster as it got closer to the target...

    Most bullets rapidly slow down after leaving the muzzle... most rifle bullets are subsonic at about 800m or so, which means for a modern 5.56mm round it has slowed down to 1/3rd its speed at the muzzle... imagine a bullet leaving the muzzle at 1.2km/s and travelling at 2km/s after 1km flight travel...

    The design bureau behind 'Buran', NPO Molniya, is now officially part of the Kalashnikov concern, so this is not too far of a stretch.

    I guess there would be overlap in terms of hypersonic aerodynamics for projectiles/missiles.

    Of course during the Soviet period it was quite normal for a design bureau to suddenly move to a different field, just to inject new ideas into different fields.

    The Avangardis to enter service in 2019. Is there any information about Cirkon?The last test was in May 2017 and has been quiet since then.

    Will they export zirkon?
