U.S. Air Force names initial hypersonic weapon alert

US Air Force Command Counts Both Types of Hypersonic weapons, developed by the Air Force, will already be in initial combat readiness in the 2022 year. This was stated by the head of the US Air Force Logistics Command, General Arnold Bunch.


Speaking to a group of journalists on Thursday, Bunch, in response to a question why hypersonic weapons were not included in the Air Force’s science and technology development strategy until 2030, replied that the US Air Force is already developing hypersonic weapons in two programs.

We are already making efforts in the field of hypersonic (weapons). I already have two programs. We are already implementing them: HCSW and ARRW (Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon and Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon) (...) We are already working with DARPA, we are already conducting research

- TASS leads the statement of the general.

According to the general, the US Air Force plans to achieve initial combat readiness of hypersonic weapons for one of these projects, or for both immediately by the 2022 year.

As previously reported, the development of hypersonic weapons programs HCSW and ARRW for the US Air Force is engaged in Lockheed Martin. The first flight tests of hypersonic warheads with the ARRW air launch system (also labeled AGM-183A) took place in the United States in June 2019 and were recognized successful.

It should be noted that in addition to the US Air Force, its own programs for creating hypersonic weapons are conducted by the US Navy and DARPA, the Department of Defense Advanced Research Programs of the US

    As popular wisdom says ... To promise does not mean to marry! Will develop - we will have a look!
    I am glad that Russia is a leader in this segment of armaments!

      As the new arms race spurred technological progress, the breath of a new capitalist war is already heard.

      And that’s why you’re talking now Hypersound, not Hypersonic ....

        Yes, by the way, something calmed down.
        I read a review that out of the pros there is only the cost of one shot. Although for me this figure is crafty. Yes, it’s cheap in energy, but there is such a CER parameter — the total cost of ownership. So the maintenance and maintenance of this gun in combat readiness costs a lot more money.
        Another disadvantage is a direct shot, you can’t throw it over the horizon, and self-aiming ammunition ... and it’s no cheaper than a rocket. Yes, and such overloads and electronic magnetic fields, electronics do not really hold. The rails wear out very quickly - so far, only one hemorrhoids have been waxed.

          Let them fuss and spend their green candy wrappers. The Fed machine will endure everything. A public debt is growing. I feel that the mattresses have plans for another supply of democracy in the form of war. negative

            Yes, in my opinion, they have been operating for so long - they create instability, and then - like, we give the roof and ruin the situation. Like the classic gangster gangs - you will bother to pay a bribe, for starters your store will burn.

            They will need a big mess if there is a seam with debt - they will need to write off. And it’s not a fact that the beneficiaries will come out of this.

            The Fed machine needs to provide sales. You can print - it’s more difficult to draw in. And for this you need to raise your bid to be more attractive. But raising the rate carries the burden of debt service - interest.
            Here is a raskoryak at "partners".

      We are unlikely with China. The Americans are now vigorously harassing India; they are very interested in the hypersonic version of the development of Bramos.

    That is, even according to forecasts, the backlog from the Russian Federation will be at least 10 years. But in fact - maybe even more.
    Based on the statement, they are working both on strategic hypersonic weapons (Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon) and on missiles for aircraft carriers (possibly for air combat).
    Note - there are no missiles for defense (such as our Nudol).

      Maintaining leadership is always more difficult, as followers always have the opportunity to reduce the gap.

      Because the real Zircon is very secret. He was not even shown
      To the president. And I had to illustrate the American development,
      which is not kept secret.

    It should be noted that in addition to the US Air Force, its own programs for creating hypersonic weapons are conducted by the US Navy and DARPA, the Department of Defense Advanced Research Programs of the US

    It reminds the German structure - the Wehrmacht separately, the Lufwaffe also separately, the Kriegsmarine also separately - swan, cancer and pike)))

    Americans, unlike us, have nowhere to rush. They are not worried about the role of those catching up. I am sure that their intelligence has collected the necessary data on our hypersound. As always, they will work on bugs. Even the GDP announced that soon this weapon will appear in our "partners". I am sure that with the successful development of hypersound, their attention will completely absorb space.

      And we are not afraid of this hypersound. We do not have aircraft carriers. We still have to miss the first blow. And the Americans-scary. In retaliation, they will lose the AN and command posts. Then they will receive a nuclear carpet.

    The U.S. Air Force command expects that both types of hypersonic weapons developed by the Air Force will already be in initial combat readiness in 2022.

    Colleagues! What do you think, you can believe the command, which so far has not led to a normal battle with its F-35, and provides the Patriots with “wishers” only under the threat of sanctions and a gun point?
    I DO NOT BELIEVE! When they advance in the creation of the RD-180, maybe ... And then, I remember how a Hollywood figure scared SOI, - the hell is still shaking, but in the end? The Russian S-500 is the only weapon capable of destroying a satellite in low orbit ...

    Stop and do, not a question. Only this is not a child prodigy, I’ll win everyone, this is a system of unconditional retaliation .....
    Minke whales have a different concept - to run into anyone and not get an answer.
    In principle, the problem, restrictions for everyone, because it is impossible to attack a serious opponent, i.e. no one will win.

    Ie you are living on a military forum, you never even heard of such missiles. How is GBI?
    maybe at least heard about THAAD?
