Pentagon head compares US hypersonic developments with Russian and Chinese

The United States is developing hypersonic weaponsAt the same time, American developments are more innovative than Chinese and Russian. This was stated by US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.


Speaking at a hearing at the Senate Committee on Armed Forces on Wednesday, the Pentagon chief assured congressmen that the United States is developing hypersonic weapons and that these developments are superior to hypersonic weapons already created in Russia and China.

Hypersonic weapons are one of our top priorities. We carry out innovative developments, and I will tell you that they are more innovative than what you can see from China or Russia, in this I can assure you

- declared Esper.

Note that recently in the United States at a high level repeatedly raised the theme of the creation of hypersonic weapons. At the same time, senior officials of the White House administration, including the head of the Pentagon, declared the United States lagged behind in creating the latest weapons from Russia and China.

For our part, we add that according to available information, the US is currently conducting nine projects to create hypersonic weapons, and four prototypes are planned for testing this year. As previously stated by Mark Esper, the Pentagon has significantly increased the cost of developing "land, air, and sea-based hypersonic ammunition."

      Developments always surpass what has already been created. So what? We also have developments, but no one compares them with the American ones. Do - show.

      But, it is not customary for the United States to ask such questions to the Secretary of Defense when he talks about the best weapons in the world. Russian lacking analogues are generally not suited to American non-analogous counterparts! (sarcasm)

    A person’s position is such ... He couldn’t go out before the congress and say something like “We screwed up a lot ... Time is lost ... There are guilty people, but they have more money than we want to publish their names. So I suggest that you tighten your sphincter and hope for the best. "

      put a plus but still I want to add one potential and finances is not enough, I also need brains) and if my memory serves me then an ekranoplan is an example (I can be wrong by the way, I'm a delitant and not a military expert). And they had the potential of grandmother cars (and not only by the way they alone), and only we have an ekranoplan. It’s a pity that he was practically buried. But I think that they will still remember.

    Eh, the old man Zadornov did not live.
    His hypothesis is brilliantly confirmed - they are the most innovative, they are not like us, they are the most American among the Russians and Chinese, they, after all, fit into one short epithet.

    The guys read all your comments)) it feels like you are siblings with him. Do exactly what you make fun of. Only one difference: HUGE MONEY PAYS HIM FOR THIS)) That's why he says exactly what they want to hear from him. And on my own I want to add, I must honestly admit to myself that our country is technologically really very inferior to am and company. And therefore it is very pleasant and causes great pride in the country when the military-industrial complex gives such surprises to our "partners". The only thing I would like for this to be done not only by the military-industrial complex but also other industries

    Yes, here are American developments like the X-43A and X-51A, although they did not go into the series (either the projects were frozen or closed) - their appearance and performance characteristics were announced. And in addition to the “Dagger", nothing is shown here. Neither the Avangard put on the OBD, nor the passing Zircon test ... So here we are “on equal terms” with them in terms of hanging “news” on the ears. We have "no analogues in the world" - they have "innovative"
