How to spot a cruise missile on the radar
A cruise missile is the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of a ballistic missile.
It can strike a target at up to 3,000 miles per hour and, at least at its most powerful, can reach the Pentagon.
It also can penetrate deep into bunkers, cruise ships, airplanes, tanks and even cars.
A cruise-missile strike can hit anywhere in the United States, anywhere in its continental United States and anywhere in Russia.
If it’s aimed at you, it will do so.
But if it’s targeted at the Pentagon, it won’t.
