notes"The 9M730 Burevestnik (Russian: Буревестник; "Storm Petrel", NATO reporting name: SSC-X-9 Skyfall) is a Russian experimental nuclear-powered, nuclear-armed cruise missile under development for the Russian Armed Forces. The missile is claimed to have virtually unlimited range. This type of weapon flies under the ballistic weapon shield and can stay airborne for days to avoid missile defenses and is part of President Putin's broader program to attempt to re-balance his nuclear strike capability. The Russian defense industry began developing an intercontinental-range nuclear-powered cruise missile capable of penetrating any interceptor-based missile defense system. It is said to have unlimited range and ability to dodge missile defenses. A major stage of trials of the cruise missile of the Burevestnik complex, the tests of the nuclear power unit, were successfully completed in January 2019. Many skeptics say that the technology to produce such a weapon without littering the earth from launch site to impact site with radioactive material is still far away."
