Rockets "Dagger" are launched from carrier aircraft, after which they fly at hypersonic speeds (10 times the speed of sound) and maneuver in flight. The missile is capable of hitting both fixed and mobile targets. The warhead is equivalent to 4 thousand kg of TNT. After launch, the rocket rises to a height of about 20 km, and then falls on the target like a conventional ballistic missile. Therefore, it is difficult to bring down air defense systems. The main carrier of the missiles of the complex "Dagger" is a modified MiG-31K aircraft. One side is capable of carrying one missile.
