The Pentagon acknowledged the loss of benefits in the development of hypersonic weapons

24
US ceded technical advantage in the development of hypersonic weapons Russia and China, which have made significant progress in creating such systems, are reporting TASS a statement by Gen. Paul Selva, Deputy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CLS).




We lost our technical hypersonic advantage, (but) we didn't lose the hypersound battle,
said Selva.

According to him, "Russia and China have advanced quite skillfully in this direction."

At the same time, the General noted that China has turned this kind of development into a “national program”.

China is ready to spend from tens to hundreds of billions (dollars) to solve the problems of hypersonic flight (devices),
he noted.

The commander clarified that Washington "is guided by a different approach, which provides for the creation of a family of hypersonic systems."

The United States "is working hard to make hypersonic aircraft more maneuverable and give them the ability to overcome enemy missile defense," which is a problem with the flight control system, he explained.

Selva questioned the need to develop manned hypersonic devices in the future.

In a situation where you can create a hypersonic weapon, the hypersonic platform is probably not a requirement,
He stressed.

The KNSH Deputy Chairman informed that in the USA three centers are working on the development of the latest hypersonic devices - the Directorate of Advanced Research Programs of the Ministry of Defense, the Navy and another center that he refused to name.

Earlier, the head of the Federation Council’s defense committee, Viktor Bondarev, said that new hypersonic missiles and high-precision weapons would become one of the priorities of the new Russian state armaments program until 2027.

            Victor, welcome! hi
            It seems to me that such statements indicate that the amers have run out of stock of Soviet developments stolen from us. smile And suddenly a creative crisis ensued. smile

                Nezalezhnaya’s specialists are good, but, due to lack of funding, they did not conduct proper developments for a long time ... Therefore, they lag behind a priori.

        If the Pentagon was moaning about the advantage of Russia, it intended not otherwise to shake the money from the Amer taxpayers. fellow

          Correct me if I am mistaken, but in my opinion there is no protection against hypersound and is not expected in the foreseeable future. To hell with them hyperactivity hypersound? Or is it such a veiled admission of the insolvency of the American military industry?

            On the 5-7 Max, maneuvering is generally problematic. There are supercritical loads for the design. The general does not quite understand what he is talking about. smile

              Twist, welcome! hi That you are VERY softly put it. I have the general impression that American generals fool Well, very far from understanding what a hypersonic weapon is and what it is eaten with. And even more, I doubt that they know what a real war looks like. request

        Yeah. They will have to introduce a flat taxation scale, as in Russia, and they will have the same happiness. lol

    Well, hypersonic development is not yet a serial weapon. So for now, parity is more likely.

    We lost our technical hypersonic advantage, (but) we didn't lose the hypersound battle,

    Wait and see. So far, only Zircon is being announced in the form of plans and vague statements appear that it is being tested and will stand on our cruisers and frigates.
    When in fact this anti-ship missile system is put into service, then it will be possible to talk about something more intelligible.

    Everywhere the mattress lags behind - in the creation of hypersonic weapons, in the creation of new atomic weapons, in tank building, in the development of missile defense systems. And that's all with their defense funding. It seems like you need to feel sorry for the blessed, otherwise they will begin to die from grief. yes

    How does he flatter himself, and what loss of advantage does he say if they have never had it. Stolen Soviet technology and plundered Russia is not an advantage. only in the inflamed brains of the American generals were there thoughts of superiority

    One thing is not clear to me. Why do they have a lot of awards for each general? Is that for every sneeze at West Point and for the fact that he arrived in the war zone?

    "We lost our technical advantage in hypersound, (but) we did not lose the battle in hypersound,
    said Selva "- Lost - But not lost. There are dollars! Mind the ward is superfluous. Hypersound does not tolerate jokes.

    If the enemy praises us, he will solve two problems - to shake denyushki to work and cut, and reassure opponents, saying "everything is fine with you." I hope that specially trained people know the true state of things.
