And the race is on again.This is news that has just been released and comes after the failed missiles tests earlier in the month designed to give a boost to russian morale. Could this be an indicator of change in the world's weapons arena with a swing back to the east?

Russia has successfully tested a hypersonic anti-Star Wars weapon capable of penetrating any prospective missile shield, a senior general said Thursday.

The prototype weapon proved it could maneuver so quickly as to make "any missile defense useless,'' Col.-Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky, the first deputy chief of the General Staff of the Russian armed forces, told a news conference.
