Vladimir Putin devoted over a third of his annual state-of-the-nation speech to revealing a series of new weapons -- both nuclear and conventional -- he said Russia is developing that will render U.S. missile defenses “ineffective.”

Many of the systems had been announced in public before, though without the elaborate video displays Putin showed Thursday, according to analysts.
