North Korea may lead the development of its own hypersonic weapons. According to the South Korean Chiefs of Staff, the latest launch of "unidentified shells" showed them developing speeds of several Mach numbers, Yonhap reported.


North Korea may develop its own hypersonic weapons


According to the agency, the Committee of Chiefs of Staff (KNS) of South Korea is carefully studying the data of the last launch of "unidentified shells" launched from the east coast of the DPRK, from the district of Thonghon County in Gangwon-do province. According to available information, "shells of an unknown type" flew 230 kilometers, while developing a speed in Mach 6,1.

The projectile range was 230 km, the maximum flight altitude reached 30 km, and the maximum speed was 6,1 Mach or more

- cite South Korean military data obtained during the tracking of North Korean launches.

The KNS said that South Korean intelligence, together with American experts, would carefully analyze the data to establish the types of shells tested by North Korea.

Earlier it was reported that on August 16, the DPRK conducted the sixth in three weeks launch of "unidentified shells" from the region of Thonchon County in Gangwon-do province towards the Sea of ​​Japan. The missiles flew 230 km and fell into the sea, nevertheless causing some concern both in South Korea and Japan.

In North Korea, they did not comment on the testing, limiting themselves to the statement that they conduct guided missile tests.

        Thanks to this dynasty. There is a country on earth where people with brains are still doing fine. Although everywhere there are pros and cons. That's interesting, to you personally - what Kim did not please. Or you have the usual collective feeling of love for the dollar and hatred for it, not particularly recognizing. :-)

    It is unlikely that the DPRK can have hypersonic technology, even if in leading countries this direction is in the initial stage (with the exception of Russia)

            For you, a hyperweapon is to create this. We barely made it on the back of the USSR, Putin himself admitted that there were already thoughts to stop developing, and you think that the DPRK will be able to create a hyperweapon?

    According to the agency, the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff (KNS) of South Korea is carefully studying the data of the last launch of "unidentified shells" launched from the east coast of the DPRK, from the area of ​​Tongcheon County in Gangwon Province.

    Why study? Speed ​​over 7 300 km / h. Only 3,9 Mach does not reach hypersonic. But the data suggests that soon the American armadas approaching the coast of the DPRK closer than 230 km will be fraught - they will tear a striped hot-water bottle like a Tuzik.
    PS How can one not recall the early years of Soviet Russia, when the circle counted how many days were left. But the socialist economy betrayed new achievements to the mountain. If it weren’t for a knife in the back, it is possible that in our country a middle-aged man would have ruled in full prime or an outwardly attractive woman, and not a grandfather without signs male human dignity.

        Wrong expressed. If we consider the characteristic:
        In a simplified version, “hypersound” is the ability of an aircraft or other material object to maneuver in the atmosphere at a speed up to ten times the same sound parameter (331 m / s), that is, several kilometers per second.

        That "falls short" to the upper limit - Mach 10 ... And so - naturally. Thanks for the clarification.

          Since the 1970s, the concept is usually referred to as supersonic speeds with Mach (M) numbers above 5. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypersonic_speed

      Those signs that you mentioned in your commentary are needed by countries that do not want to be sovereign. It is enough for them to have owners and employers. Russia needs smart patriots. People understand this and vote in a way that they don’t like at all for those who see Russia as a Western appendage.

        Russia just needs patriots, who perceive the pain and ailment of the country as their own. Which is important not a bold (sweet, buttery) piece on the table, but a normally developing country with strong economic potential and growing human, not deprived of morality and intellect. But sometimes they don’t look at our business, perceive the physiognomy: (the main idea is from 4:10)

        "Russia needs smart patriots."
        I agree. And where to get them? This is not a product. They need to be cultivated at home. But on what?
        For this, it is necessary to completely change the approach to the education of YOUTH.
        Here is what A.P. Devyatov: “As for the actual military power of the country, it should be noted here that in the USSR the nuclear missile shield was strong, and there were no tanks at all. the future of the market and human rights in Russia.
        It should be repeated and emphasized that in a war of a new hybrid type, the path of victory must be new!
        That is: neither the Ministry of Defense with troops and weapons, nor state security with antiterror, nor the National Guard with the police, but the Ministry of Culture is called upon to open a main front in the cognitive sphere and peacefully advance:
        in ethics (what should, what is possible and what is impossible),
        in aesthetics (which is beautiful and harmonious, and what is ugly) 
        in logic (albeit with bitter, but true, and not with a sham and the illusions of truth in the last resort).
        The kinds of soft power will be a set of arts: cinema, theater, circus, painting, sculpture, music, dancing, as well as museums ...
        To do this, you need to equate the Ministry of Culture with the power and directly subordinate to the President of the Russian Federation. And in the operational plan, close to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, where to create a special Department of cognitive operations.

          You will probably be surprised, but I agree with this comment 100%. I will just change yours a little - "we need to completely change the approach to raising YOUTH" to "we must completely change the approach to raising CHILDREN." And what is most interesting is that this is exactly the issue I am dealing with. Several programs for the development of children are currently being created in Russia. And these are not copied Western nonsense, but very serious methods, where everything is based on some features of the limbic system and cytoarchitectonic fields of the brain. In other words, we will educate talents and, if possible, geniuses. But the main thing is that these children, if everything works out, will not be dogmatists, but will be generators of new ideas. For this, we will abandon some of the classic school concepts. For example "Euclidean Geometry". Since for younger students it is a real killer of the development of mathematical abilities. Euclid will be carried over to higher grades. There will be many changes. Education will begin in kindergarten and this will be at the level of Newtonian and Einstein's theories. So don't worry too much about the future of Russia. Much is already being planned and done. But everything has its time !!!

    Why study? Speed ​​over 7 300 km / h. Only 3,9 Mach does not reach hypersonic.

    What are you saying? Really falls short? 7300 km / h is 2028 m / s. Dividing 2028 m / s by the speed of sound 331 m / s we get 6,17 (7) M
    The lower limit of hypersound is 5M and above. The upper bound exists solely for the forward flow and nothing more. If you don’t have a forward-flow path, you can have 13M or 20M in the end. so your delights that hypersound is 10M - sorry, has nothing to do with realities.
    Hypersonic speed (GS) in aerodynamics are speeds that far exceed the speed of sound in the atmosphere. Since the 1970s, the concept is usually referred to as supersonic speeds with numbers Mach (M) above 5.
    So the last tested system like ATACMS is hypersonic.

    To begin with, let them create a long-range radar of the same surface wave, and then they will tear a heating pad like an ace. And why should they approach 230 km? What carrier-based aircraft can not make these systems starting from a distance of at least 500-700 km ???

    The fact that this happened is to blame for the leadership of the USSR itself, primarily the Politburo. For the basis of the propaganda of the USSR, which was supported by all means in the PB, was "not to let go." Instead of injecting the brains of its citizens into something in a metered manner and in the right direction, it became easier. Exclusively by prohibitions. The prohibition on information was the most important of the prohibitions. Instead of giving a Soviet citizen, for example, to read some Western action movie, accompanied by an analysis of the main storylines and summaries - like look at what kind of boobies they are - they made it easier. They were not allowed to read (or happen). But already "unattended". Do you think that the artificially created shortage of literature in the early to mid-80s was able to prohibit something? Spontaneous book markets arose, driven by the police. Samizdat was selected. What's the point?
    Here is the control over the consciousness of the Politburo and lost

    For the first position, you need an ideology. Otherwise, there will be no criterion "what is good and what is bad"
    The same thing with aesthetics. There must be a reference point.
    Well, the logic. This is what the country's leadership will never tell the truth. It is not profitable for them. But to make stuffing about something "which has no analogues" is very profitable. especially if you do it regularly. Increases self-awareness and "lowers" the enemy. And then, when, after years or decades, the truth suddenly opens up, the questions begin: "but we were told ...."
