Military Review

Japan wanted its own hypersonic complex. "Vanguard" influenced?

28
The Japanese military department decided to follow the path of improving the country's defense system. To this end, it was decided to start development in the field of advanced hypersonic weapons. Information of this kind is published on the portal. Defense Blog with reference to the updated version of the so-called "White Book".


In Japan, the White Book is a collection of materials from the military department, which determines the national security strategy and options for overcoming certain threats. The White Paper states that the development of hypersonic missile systems in the Land of the Rising Sun began this year.

This is a national program Hyper Velocity Gliding Projectile (HVGP). This program provides for the implementation of rocket technology, which will allow the ammunition to maneuver on the trajectory at high speed - up to 3 km / s. The stated characteristics allow us to make an assumption that Japan intends to create an analogue of the Russian Avangard system.



Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry noted that the speed of the Avant-garde exceeds the speed of sound by more than 10 times (more than 10 Mach numbers).

The White Paper noted that hypersonic weapons will ensure the security of remote island territories.

From the material:
As part of a major defense program on the 2018 fiscal year, research is conducted on HVGP elemental technologies designed to protect remote islands. A new type of ammunition will be able to move with great speed and attack the target.

    that hypersonic weapons will ensure the safety of remote island territories.

    Is this a subtle hint of far-reaching plans or what? This ... we can also hint - Japan, a small island, a lot is not necessary.

        That does not give the samurai past yapam live in peace. About "big brother" I agree, striped themselves will not let them do anything. And if something is wrong, another Fukushima will be organized. Only the situation is slightly different from the times of Genghis Khan (I'm talking about hurricane Kamikaze) and 1905, 1930s of the 20th century. They themselves live under occupation and dream of some kind of weapon, and even more so the islands. And about Fujiyama, so even Vissarionich offered to blow up this volcano for them. Even a 10-ton bomb had already been made, but .... Japan had surrendered by that time. And Fujiyama with thickets of blossoming sakura still pleases the eye to the descendants of the samurai. By the way about the volcano, the striped ones would not hurt to think about their powder keg in the nat. of Yellowstone Park.

          They behave in such a way that I get the impression that they are already ready, and therefore they want to drag as many of the inhabitants of the Earth with them into oblivion. And they don't care who it will be - "After us - even a flood!" ... sad

            Pasha, you can laugh, you can say that someone REN TV has reviewed. But another year that way, 08 or 09, information ran through (poorly true) that the stripes are still preparing for their 80X20 km caliber volcano. They agreed with Liberia to provide them (striped, or rather the elite) land. And that this land will probably be cleared of local blacks. And then the ebola suddenly a year and a half ago. And mowed only blacks. As they say, think comrades yourself.

      These are the consequences of the rash talk of a high-ranking official. Ideas "are in the air" and sometimes a simple hint is enough to implement such an idea! Of course, if you wish.

    sooner or later, the entire global financial bubble of public debt will burst ... no matter how some individuals, who say that the United States and similar countries with a growing public debt live and that nothing happens, all have their limits ... then we will look at budgets and opportunities to develop something there ... by the way, war as a solution to debts is not a panacea

    And besides us, they have no opponents? Korea, for example. Though South, even North? Or there are no disputed islands, in particular with Vietnam. Why, when it comes to someone’s armament, is the focus always exclusively on Russia? No other opponents?

    Hypersound is always good. The question is, how do they see him? As a weapon: offensive or defensive? I think the Japanese, with their workaholism, will reach their level. But what kind of "their" they have in this topic is not yet clear. In any case, hypersound is a new round in both technology and weapons ... Actually, these things are always connected. I am glad that Russia is (so far) clearly ahead. To keep the lead.

    Well, they are unlikely to rely on defensive weapons with hypersonic flight speed. They have no breakthroughs in anti-aircraft complexes. But to make an offensive missile, where they can handle a maneuvering warhead as combat equipment. We don't know anything about the range yet. But even if they can make a ballistic missile with such a BO and a flight range of 700-800 km, this already means something. In addition, they are unlikely to go along such a costly path as creating a hypersonic cruise missile with a hypersonic constant flight speed. Most likely they will go according to the principle of our "Dagger", where the maximum speed after the engine stops working at altitudes of 50-70 km will be hypersonic, and when entering the dense layers of the atmosphere, the speed will already be supersonic

    A carefully read is not given? Or do you have speed in 3 km / s (in the note) is associated with a speed of 3M? And no more than 11M by chance ???

      Old26, the whole problem you have is that they now have 3M. And what’s in the article. This is the planned future. I talked about now.
