Or not... the resolution isn't good enough to distinguish if this is and aircraft at all, or ground coloration. It could be a parking area for a black aircraft to "hide in plain sight" within it's boundries.
What makes you think they can shoot down a hypersonic aircraft?

As far as we know the SR-71 or the A-12 which was a scosh faster never overflew the Soviet Union. Its allies however were another story. The Vietnamese (BTW Happy Tet everybody) did try to down them during the war with no luck, however, one Habu flight did has a small piece of what looks like schrapnel damage in a wing that may have come from a SA-2 warhead.
