The head of the US Strategic Command, General John Heithen, confirmed that Russia and China are conducting hypersonic tests. weapons. US intelligence is closely monitoring this work, he added.


They definitely have it! The head of Stratkoma confirmed the presence of hypersonic weapons in Russia


I will not tell you about the means that we use, and will not mention the technical features of Russian missiles. But I can say that we watched Russia and China test the hypersonic capabilities of the new weapon.
- General Heithen told reporters at the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs.

We take the words of Vladimir Putin very seriously. You have to believe everything he said - this weapon works.
- quotes Heiten Defense News. The general expressed the wish that the US be more actively engaged in hypersonic weapons, since after unsuccessful tests in the past, work on this topic was practically stopped.

Also, the head of Strathkom admitted that missile defense systems deployed in Alaska and in California are not designed to fight hypersonic weapons.

Having our own ammunition of this class will help the United States in solving only one part of the problem. The other - protection against enemy hypersonic missiles - is still under consideration. Modernization of missile defense systems will require at least a few years, it can not be bothered
- said the general

Earlier, US military expert Dave Majumdar refused to recognize the "Dagger" as a hypersonic rocket on the grounds that she had an "engine of the wrong system." At the same time, Majumdar acknowledged that the “Dagger” was flying on a hypersound, RG-Sil

              No offense, I just can't keep up with your analytical thought. Personally, I assume that in dense atmospheres it will be extremely difficult for the Americans to intercept warheads, they need composite materials with a high melting point that they will not have soon, this is Russia's advantage in terms of the time it takes to deploy weapons into near space. I do not consider high ballistic orbits, they are still vulnerable.

      They were not stopped by a desire, but simply by a fear of the prospect of butting with the Russian Federation in a direct armed conflict without intermediaries, that is, directly. It is very likely that in such a direct military confrontation, their 10 AUGs will not help.

In addition, money in its essence, in the mattress version, is collateral promises that their economy is the most stable. In other words, a dollar is a promise and an assurance.

    From the hypersonic weapons of the Russian Federation to the national territory of the United States, only the U-71 guided warhead and the Avangard planning warhead are a threat.

    The Burevestnik intercontinental cruise missile with a nuclear power plant, judging by the need to ensure the operation of the airborne SSGS on the marching portion of the flight without screening from the side of the plasma cloud, flies at supersonic speed (which is also confirmed by the presence of wings as such).

    "Vanguard" can be intercepted at the planning site, against Yu-71 there is no defense in principle.

        Shoigu already once said that 540 thousand square meters were freed from barmalei in the SAR km territory, taking into account the fact that the area of ​​the ATS is 185,2 sq.km.

        Well, my friend, you wrote only the first part of this story? Once you started, so let's get to the end ...
        Yes, Shoigu really said that about 503 thousand square kilometers (and not 540 thousand km, as you said) of Syria’s area have been freed.
        UN data is just over 185 thousand kilometers.
        The first question is, how was this UN data obtained?
        Now for the question ..
        The fact is that due to the curvature of the earth's surface on a conventional two-dimensional map, only a flat projection of this territory is depicted. There are many ways to project the surface of an ellipsoid (geometrically, the Earth’s shape is usually called the “rotation ellipsoid”) onto a plane, but each of them will distort either the distance between points on the map or the area of ​​certain territories, the shape of objects and the so-called azimuthal grid. A good example of such distortion is the Mercator projection, a variant of which uses Google Maps. Pay attention to the size of Greenland - on Google Maps it is larger than South America, although in reality it is several times smaller than it.

        More ..
        According to GIS-Lab, the area of ​​Syria on the ellipse (that is, on the surface of the globe) is 191 302 square meters. km In the projection of Mercator, it amounted to 284 square meters. km, which is one and a half times more than UN data.

        And what was Shoigu talking about?
        Minister of Defense could be guided by data obtained using a completely different map - a relief map of Syria. Such maps take into account the real area, including the surface of mountains, hills and even the bottom topography of water bodies.

        the difference between the projection and the relief map will be the greater, the greater the mountains in the country. According to the expert, the two main factors that determine the differences in area are the size of the territory and its relief.





        The military makes extensive use of embossed maps. "Such maps are actively used for flight missions of cruise missiles. They do not fly on topographic maps, but on three-dimensional, at certain sections of the route by comparing the image in the flight mission and the terrain over which they fly


        And here’s a query on the topic of Syria’s square and why, according to Shoigu, it has become three times more than UN data.

And according to the accompanying note (excuses), it turns out that you need to revise the entire political map of the world, or rather the area of ​​all countries. There are generally recognized rules and it is not worth revising them because of the notions of officials. I can remind you that the president also showed iPhone and pictures with a "mattress helicopter" in the film, passing them off as the actions of our troops. belay

            And what's so funny? I remind you that Shoigu is a military man and reports and reports he does not receive on the basis of Google maps or UN data, which are not clear how they are calculated. A person operates with numbers that are in use in his department.
            Moreover, it’s stupid to think that the military will use the data incomprehensibly as calculated for general use. For example, it’s not important to you, 185 thousand or half a million there, because you simply do not need this information. And let me say, our military in Syria is very much to the point. After all, the same Kyrgyz Republic, if you drive a flight mission into it, taking into account the fact that the earth is flat, and pour the fuel on the basis of the same, then it will plop down the mountain (if it flies with an envelope of the terrain) ...
            And therefore, I think in the statement Shoigu there is nothing funny.
            A simple example ... the layman measures all calculations when measuring something more often in centimeters, meters ... and let's say a furniture master in millimeters. And what kind of scientific laboratory assistant, in nanometers ... so which of them correctly measures?

I remember from the school course of geography that even school maps indicated the area, mountains, rivers, coastal and ext. seas and other bodies of water, steppes, deserts, arable lands, etc. If Shoigu made a report for the layman, then let him report clearly, but even with these "explanations" the data does not beat and the funny thing is the area of ​​the bottom of the rivers.

                Why? Topographic maps are different for different purposes. For example, if we take the same flight mission of the Kyrgyz Republic from point A to point B, and its possible decrease in height to the heights of buildings, then such a map will be used exactly. And if, say, you need to calculate the ballistic trajectory, then these are completely different numbers and tolerances.

                I remember from the school geography course that even school maps indicated the area of ​​the territory, mountains, rivers, coastal and inland. seas and other bodies of water, steppes, deserts, arable lands, etc.

                But I remember that my grandfather had a card for official use, in which it was noted even where each tree and bush stands, where streams (small) flow, with height data, etc. ... so if such a card is an order of magnitude more accurate, do you think she is not right?

                If Shoigu made a report for the layman, then let him report clearly

                Shoigu and reported clearly. I repeat, what difference is 185 thousand km or 500 thousand km if you are a layman? He operated with numbers that are in use in his department. I repeat, it would be strange if our military would use the data of the UN or Google maps ... where our Caliber would fly and where Iskander would hit. And about attack aircraft, when flying at low altitudes with an envelope of terrain, they would wander among the mountains, not understanding where the target is.

                but even with these "explanations" the data does not beat

                Why? Did you check them or just think so? That is, the UN data is true for you (and it doesn’t matter that they differ from the GIS-Lab and Mercator data), but the figures of Shoigu make you laugh ... you have strange logic.

    Dave Majumdar refused to recognize the “Dagger” as a hypersonic missile on the grounds that it had “the engine of the wrong system”. At the same time, Majumdar admitted that the Dagger flies in hypersound

    One of us and Majumdar are confused ... Explain.

      No, this is not the main thing.
      The main thing is that respected commentators on VO clearly imagine what such people as you really are.
      You can joke about us in your kitchen.

    Yes, he’s an agent of the Kremlin, it’s immediately clear that the GRU agent, Putin’s agent, cannot be trusted, we have nothing but a torn economy, but we are just a regional power, a gas station ...
