Washington (AP) - For the first time since the end of the INF disarmament treaty between Russia and the US, the US military has tested a conventional land-based cruise missile. He was fired from the Californian island of San Nicolas and reached his destination precisely after more than 500 kilometers of flight, the Pentagon said. The data gained would now flow into the development of future medium-haul capacity. The test would have been banned under the INF contract. The US had terminated him because they assume that Russia has been hurting him for years.
