Shouldn't an hypersonic missile have some form of air intakes?

   A spectacular photo of the authorship of Alexander Shukhov, of a modified MiG-31 fighter (the "90 red" aircraft) with a Kinzhal air missile complex. Photo was made during the rehearsal of the air part of the Victory Parade on May 9 in Moscow during the joint parade training in Alabino on April 9 2018. This plane with a mass-dimensional mock up of the "Dagger"/Kinzhal complex will take part in the Victory Parade.

SDB II has finished developmental testing.

 

" Weighing 94.3 kg (208 lb), 177 cm (70 in) in length and 17.8 cm (7 in) in diameter, SDB II features a dual-waveform datalink - for in-flight target updates, in-flight re-targeting, weapon in-flight tracking, and weapon abort - flip-out wings to achieve stand-off range, GPS/INS navigation for mid-course guidance, an advanced tri-mode (millimeter wave (MMW), imaging infrared and semi-active laser) seeker for terminal engagement, and a low-collateral, multi-effects warhead. The SDB II design features three attack modes: normal - the primary mode to engage moving targets through weather using MMW radar and IR for terminal guidance; laser illuminated attack – using the laser spot tracker for terminal guidance; and co-ordinated attack mode: to attack fixed or stationary targets at a given set of co-ordinates. "
