US Virginia-class submarines will be the first to receive hypersonic missiles

Virginia-class US nuclear-powered attack submarines will soon receive hypersonic missiles. These submarines will be the first submarines in the U.S. Navy to receive a new weapon. This is stated in the draft US military budget for fiscal year 2021.


US Navy plans first on navy to equip atomic submarines of the Virginia class with hypersonic non-nuclear instant-strike missiles created under the Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) program. According to the draft defense budget, next year it is planned to allocate about $ 1 billion for this program. The deployment of missiles on the nuclear submarine is scheduled for 2028.

As stated in the command of the US Navy, the deployment of hypersonic missiles of an instant global strike will allow the United States to strike at any target on the planet in less than an hour. According to the plans, up to 65 hypersonic missiles will be deployed on each Virginia-class submarine of the latest Block V series.

Previously, the Pentagon announced that over the next 20 years the US Navy will receive 30 Virginia-type boats, which will replace the Los Angeles-class submarines, built from 1976 to 1996.

The Virginia-type submarine has a length of 114,2 m (377 ft), a width of 10,4 m (34 ft) and a displacement of 7835 tons. The speed is more than 25 knots in the underwater position, the immersion depth is more than 240 m. The submarine is equipped with a reactor, which does not require refueling during the entire period of operation. The crew is 134 people. The armament of the submarine includes Tomahawk cruise missiles, four 533-mm torpedo tubes with torpedoes Mk48 ADCAP Mod.6, sea mines and unmanned underwater vehicles.

        Virginia-class US nuclear-powered attack submarines in the near future will be armed with hypersonic missiles.

        It intrigues me more, where are they going to shove these declared 65 KR? Yes, with the declared submarine length of 114 m.? Under such a number of KR, ten launch glasses are necessary. And this is the dimension under the “Ohio” dancing.

          That you have seen enough Hollywood films about the end of the world)))))
          Speech about another - 30 submarines will cover a large area (the issue of parity on the one hand).
          You can use it locally anywhere, in Syria, for example. Number determines additional features.
          For example, 10 complexes you save. And if you have 100 or 200 units. , then apply somewhere in .... so Trump says it beautifully on TV, and the next day, let’s say Assad already in the seventh heaven. Terrible and effective - Americans love it

              No, not always, I didn’t write about it, I wrote that they like this method and still often get it (Serbia, Libya, Iraq, Syria, etc.). So far, they are hitting cruise missiles - all that they have today is a way to strike from a distance. And it’s not always effective, because countermeasures are developing, and if the stripes have hypersound, from a long distance, and effective, whether they bribe anyone, approach close, disgrace with the launches of cruise missiles, I think not.

        1. To get scared? No, but you need to be careful. This is a serious car. Block-5 will be dragged after inserting VPM from 4 VPU to 5 KR each with 40 "axes". But this is serious.
        2. Respond? Have you tried to solve the issue of the rhythmic release of 885M? And the planned 10 buildings, in my convex v / m eye, are clearly not enough. You need to do 677M, but for Laika-Navy to take!
        Other is not given.

    In that “near future”, Russia will already have air defense from hypersonic targets.

        Bersaglieri..So Russia (S-400) and the USA (THAAD, SM3) already have it

        This is not about hypersound in space (ballistic missiles, or satellites), it's about hypersound in the atmospheric layer. We already have a zircon and a dagger, the United States and China are still 8-10 years behind. We are already developing missiles to destroy "hypersonic means." So for the MiG-31 (and the promising MiG-41), the K-77M air-to-air missile (under test) is being developed.
        In a message to the Federal Assembly in 1918, Putin announced that we already have hypersonic daggers and zircons, and while they catch up with us, we will create protection against their hypersonic products. hi

          Dagger = aeroballistics, Zircon-5-8M, not super-maneuverable (physics will not allow energetic maneuvers at such speeds, it will collapse). Everything is intercepted by systems 10-15 years ago.

            Listen, honestly, both the Dagger and Zircon are absolutely ... on Your opinion, If fate substitutes YOU for their blow - then in the "other" world you will make excuses about the erroneous opinion. In the meantime, there is no means against them EVEN at the air defense of the Russian Federation. The Yankees and others like them, generally in flight, because they lagged behind in the means of air defense (ABM). Just do not need here about the SM-6, which is effective only against targets equipped with RADIO BEACONS laughing

    30 boats in 20 years, i.e. 1,5 pcs per year. However.....
    And the fact that the United States will receive hypersound in the near future, I have no doubt how many years we have to use this advantage in the political and information confrontation, at the same time modernizing our own aircraft

      But I strongly doubt the hypersonic KR, because new physics has not been invented either in the States, or in the Russian Federation, or in China. No one has shown controlled atmospheric flight with the M7-8 yet.

        So it is: more than 3-4 M in dense layers of the atmosphere, no way. The "garden" of hypersonic is in the stratosphere and higher .. When reduced to dense layers, only the average supersonic is present, and then, we will burn due to kinetic heating :). But the "pseudo-patriots" firmly believe in 8 M at sea level :)

    By today's standards, when significant political events happen almost daily and are usually not very good, 8 years is a long time. We cannot imagine what will happen this year or the next year. And this year, elections in the United States, which is still unknown how they might end.

      Trump of course, all the major players have long signed plans for joint activities with his administration for both terms and invested a lot of money in these plans. And so the situation will probably not especially change, the Russian Federation is satisfied that the States are blocking the armaments of Europe, China is arranging the US market, and the USA is arranging such a leadership. True, the financial crisis is threatening.

    It’s strange. An article about boats, not rockets. About Virginia has long been known, and what kind of missiles? In addition to the Air Force, Waverider, whose program seemed to be closed, had not heard anything about the Navy and the land. It seems that the United States is adopting Russia's "iron hypersound." No missiles, but about to arm.
