Lockheed Martin will develop for the US Air Force a hypersonic missile for 2022 year

The American company Lockheed Martin received an almost billion-dollar contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop an air-based hypersonic missile Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW). Achievement of initial operational readiness is planned for 2022 year.

The U.S. Air Force and Lockheed Martin have signed a $ 988,8 million contract to create the ARRW hypersonic missile (Weapon quick response based in the air). The agreement includes a critical review of the ARRW project, test support and preparation of the complex for production. The missile should be ready for the 2021 year, and the initial operational readiness for the 2022 year.



It is planned that the hypersonic complex developed by the company will develop at least 5 Mach speed, which will help it effectively overcome the enemy’s ABM.

Earlier, the head of the US Air Force Logistics Command, General Arnold Bunch, said that the US Air Force is developing two types of hypersonic weapons and expects to receive initial combat readiness by the 2022 year. The Air Force implements two programs - HCSW and ARRW (Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon and Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon).

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

              During the USSR, the defense industries of many leading countries were in good shape, driven by an arms race and confrontation. After the collapse of the Union, the western defense industry began to cut and master the budget, since there was no threat. And then we got up again ... but the Western defense industrial complex has lost all its intellectual power, and continues to stupidly cut the loot without giving birth to anything. F-35, B-2, etc., is not for war against a strong enemy. Reported, drank loot, people ate everything, because look what a futuristic B-2. And no matter what kind of 2 lard. It is important that no one has this.

        Lockheed with Martin are the most disinterested and patriotic guys in all of America, if f22 costs more than the weight of the aircraft in gold, then you need to strive for something and go to more expensive equivalents, for example diamonds. Each racket has as many diamonds as it can fit in. Tighten. so get together.

          I think that by 2022 our scientists will figure out how to intercept their missile. Usually the advantage is for those who have built something new before. In this case, a hypersonic missile.

        I'm not a rocket launcher and according to the performance characteristics it can be worse than the Russian one. But as an economist, I don’t understand why she shouldn’t be 5 or 10 times more expensive. Why, according to your logic, everything should cost a penny, regardless of bread or a rocket or a car ....

        It is necessary to drive the levels of salaries and expenses in advanced countries. One rocket engineer must live in a chic house, ride on Merce and pay the university to teach his children. That rocket is 5-10 times more expensive ....

          Such technologies are an expensive pleasure, and the Yankees are many times more expensive, their approach is like that, for themselves it is expensive, and in order to recapture the cost, for "partners" they are even more expensive))

            Yankees are more expensive at times, they have such an approach,


            Well, it’s understandable - find the salary of a rocketman at you and at Lockheed and it will become clear that the costs are different.

            to recoup the cost, for "partners" they are even more expensive))


            Well, of course, you need to beat off expenses and put together a hefty profit in order to develop something new. Not everyone can sell for palm oil ...

            The circuit works, they do not take a steam bath))


            Yes, the eta scheme works with all the goods, think about it. One iPhone or Mercedes or a washing machine is cheap, but sold at a huge profit. So it is necessary that we are paid dearly, for labor.

            I give an example - a good software player in Bulgaria takes a medium of 2-3 thousand euros per month. My friend in Shchat has a salary of 140 thousand dollars a year. Normal difference? But therefore, both yours and our software engineers and engineers are running to work there .... because they have a different approach wink

They will create a "clean" hypersonic rocket after XNUMX, when they will "report" that the plans to inject dust into the eyes have been successfully completed. ..
