I can't decide if this was an R-36MU or a UR-100UTTKh.  It launched from Dombarovsky and the Avangard hypersonic RV impacted on the Kura Range, Kamchatka.

The engine configuration on the second stage looks closer to UR-100UTTKh.

The photo looks very similar to Strela (UR-100NU).

Strela uses modified versions of original missile fairing.

This Avangard adaptation sure looks like it uses a Strela fairing, or an adaptation of a Strela fairing.

Two sounding rockets were launched from Andoya in the past week or so: a Black Brant-IIA carrying the CAPER-2 payload on Jan 4, and a Terrier-Improved-Malemute with the G-Chaser payload on Jan 13.
See: https://www.andoyaspace.no/2019/01/04/caper-2-launch-successful/
and
https://www.andoyaspace.no/2019/01/13/g-chaser-mission-successfully-launched/
Videos and pics of both launches are attached.
