    Cruise missiles with an ability to choose their tactic and trajectory when pursuing a target could be available in Russia as early as in 2050, the chief of the Tactical Missiles Corporation has said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Boris Obnosov said in an interview with the Izvestiya newspaper, published Friday, artificial intelligence in missiles would take Russian engineers three decades "if we made more effort."

    He added however that the "intelligent" missile technology required more fundamental and applied research, and enterprises inside the corporation were busy working on dozens of other military products to focus resources on this single task.
