    In February, Russian military has successfully tested a new interceptor missile of for its A-135 Anti-Ballistic Missile system at a testing range in in Kazakhstan. Deputy Commander of the Aerospace Forces’ air and missile defense task force, Colonel Andrei Prikhodko, said that the technical characteristics of the new interceptor missile by far exceed those of its present-day counterparts.

    The new interceptor missiles will be reportedly added to the A-135 anti-ballistic missile system operated by the Russian Aerospace Forces and deployed around Moscow to protect the Russian capital and its environs against enemy missile strikes.

    Tests of new interceptor of the Moscow missile defense continue

    The Air and Space Defense Forces conducted a successful test of a "modernized" interceptor of the Moscow missile defense system at the Sary-Shagan test site. The date of the test was not disclosed, although it was said that it took place in July.

    The report mentions that the interceptor has the speed of 4 km/s. It is also said that in this test the intercept point was "at the maximum distance from the protected object."

    The new interceptor is sometimes referred to as 53T6M. It appears that this is the fourth test of the interceptor; the most recent previous one was conducted in April 2018.

    That's actually the U/S of the now-withdrawn 51T6, itself a development of the older A-35 Galosh. The display model still retains the flange connector to the inter-stage truss for hot-staged separation.

    I've never seen a verifiable photo of the 53T6, but apparently it is very similar to the Martin-Marietta Sprint missile.
