An analysis of hypersonic developments in the USA is illustrated with a map with goals in Russia.

Mark Lewis, director of the American research and development organization, said the United States needs to “scale up efforts to produce hypersonic weapons". According to Lewis, the variability of such weapons is important. This refers to the possibility of using it from various carriers, including submarines.


Mark Lewis:

You can not say "either one or the other." We must use all this in a large, unified system. We must create a system for each part of which there would be a purpose.

Lewis criticized the current program, the financing of which, in his opinion, is extremely small and does not allow the American aviation, army and the fleet acquire a sufficient number of hypersonic missiles.

Lewis during a video conference with the Mitchell Institute, part of the Air Force Association:

If you have a program that delivers eight missiles, and then stops ... Well, well, and for which of the thousands of targets in our set we will use these eight missiles?



According to the official, the difficulty is that today no one can say what the costs of creating a large number of hypersonic missiles can be. About these costs, in his opinion, it will be possible to speak in process of direct production.

Currently, the Pentagon has several areas of work in the field of hypersonic weapons:
ARRW Air Force - airborne hypersonic systems (in fact, we are talking about an attempt in the USA to create an American analogue of the Russian "Dagger", which today is a hypersonic system with a MiG-31 carrier), LRHW and CPS - hypersonic missiles for mobile soil systems and for the US Navy as well as HAWC and HSW-ab (the most powerful versions of hypersonic weapons).

At the same time, Lewis notes the complexity and technological plan. According to him, the maximum speed of hypersonic complexes that use gliding technology, with existing methods, will not be higher than 7 M, which is approximately half the expected value.

It was noteworthy that the article in the American media devoted to hypersonic developments in the USA and the analysis of the developments themselves were illustrated (figure above) by the graphics of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA). A noteworthy illustration is that it shows targets for missiles flying from the UK. And these goals are designated as located on the territory of Russia. Including targets for hypersonic missiles with a maneuvering warhead. Earlier in the US, they were very indignant at Russian graphics, where the latest weapons of the Russian Federation hit targets on an invented map of the area. Some people in Washington decided that the map on the animation of the Russian Ministry of Defense "is very similar to the map of Florida." Unlike the Defense Ministry card, the CSBA card is much more explicit.

      If, in addition to everything, the States have no real hypersonic missiles and will not be soon, then what difference does it make, what goals on our territory will they set for aiming?
      Their slingshots still don’t shoot so far ... laughing

      Why, the Chinese are now very actively pumping up their armed forces. Rather, brand recognition plays a role here: Moscow and its surroundings have been positioned as the main goal for more than 70 years; there is no need to invent something new for beautiful pictures.

        Of course, China is developing its armed forces faster than anyone, but to parity with the United States,
        still far.

          Generations of scientists have been nurtured for years.
          Already at least one decade, as all the major universities in Western Europe are clogged with Chinese fashion. And this is one of the main reasons why China learned to build its aircraft carriers, planes and tanks.

            How to grow up :)
            Actually, now half of all scientific publications in the world are published by Chinese scientists, and there is a tendency to increase the number of publications :)
            And about 10 years ago the picture was completely different :)

              There are indeed a lot of publications and patents made by Chinese scientists and engineers. That's just their level is very low. And in science, and in technology do not take a number. One hundred billion Chinese will not replace Newton alone.
              Something I did not hear about any discovery made by Chinese, or Japanese scientists.
              Do not consider it racism - this is just a statement of facts.

                That's just the Japanese do not need to compare with the Chinese. This is a thankless task. Japan had and still has tremendous scientific potential. There are Nobel laureates in the field of physics.
                Yukawa Hideki (Hideki) Japanese theoretical physicist, awarded in 1949 the Nobel Prize in physics for predicting the existence of new elementary particles - mesons.

        I doubt that with the existence of the first missile defense area, the most important target of Msk and surrounding areas, the number of warheads that can be destroyed is unknown, not all, of course, but there are also limited number of carriers, the main blow will be to the cities outside the missile defense zone, but with the fact that A-235 is painted on a movable medium, the missile defense coverage area is very expanding

    The stubborn desire of the Americans to die is striking, and the deadline is sure to die in the nuclear armageddon.

      Do you think that when making a picture, their opinion was asked? Personally, even without pictures, I think that, apart from us and China, the Pentagon has no targets for ICBMs and other missile technology with nuclear weapons. Here they at least do not hide behind "fig" leaves. Where are they planning to launch them from? From any territory suitable from the point of view of launch safety, regardless of nationality. It will also be one of the last moments of the planet's life in the usual legal framework. After that, hardly anyone will ask questions. There will be other tasks and other problems. So a launch is drawn from British territory, or Polish, or Ukrainian - what's the difference. But of course it is necessary to raise the HYIP, otherwise they will understand that we are ready to hit any part of the planet. laughing

    Even when Russia was showing a computer picture, it seemed to me nonsense to use a fictitious map. For me, it was so necessary to demonstrate not only on a real globe so that no one had to think of anything, but goals could be indicated not only in the United States, but also in Europe, so that the rolls would not relax. And then somehow we played a game of "partners", the United States loudly informs the whole world that we are their enemies and aggressors, and we all call them partners. It is high time to move from chatter to business and, first of all, rigidly put Europe (but not the European Union, but each state separately) before the choice with whom they are with the United States or with Russia and China, introducing economic sanctions on companies and states cooperating with the United States, along the way to fill the middle east (better than the enemies of the UAE) with weapons capable of destroying oil and gas production capabilities to the core. Now is the perfect time for this kind of deal with China, which will almost certainly receive for the sanctions virus.

      Do you want to completely "quarrel" with all of Europe? Give arguments to those who day and night accuse Russia of plans to strike and seize "something out there in the West"?
      Ok, you will get yours done quickly and at minimal cost.
      firmly put Europe (but not the European Union, but each state separately) before deciding who they are with the USA or with Russia and China

      Ok, ok ... but what, in fact, will give the European countries some kind of "being with Russia"? What are the advantages over being with America? Culturally, historically and economically, Europe is connected with the United States by thousands, millions of ties, and with Russia, first of all, by the purchase of not very diverse raw materials. With China, the situation is somewhat different, but it does not impose any such conditions on Europe (it is smarter).
      Whether there will be a war in Europe or not, no one knows, and in the peaceful life of the United States it is much (!) More profitable as a partner and, first of all, as a huge, capacious market with extremely high purchasing power.
      Russia here did not stand close.
      introducing economic sanctions on companies and states cooperating with the United States

      Well, until the sanctions are imposed strictly back. If you want to answer, go ahead and take a look at the consequences.
      fill the Middle East (better than the enemies of the UAE) with weapons capable of destroying the ability to extract oil and gas to the base

      As if in response not to receive NATO troops in Ukraine and somewhere else close to the territory of Russia itself. As for the initiation of a military strike on the UAE ... I want to get the real arms race? Is there any preparedness for this? And the strength? Facilities?
      Now is the right moment for this kind of deal with China

      Will you ask China? Do they need it?

    Well, now it’s at least clear why it was the mattress that illustrated its analysis with a map of our country! Freaks with sick pride! At such moments, one involuntarily recalls a story about Sakharov’s proposal to create an artificial Stalin Strait between Canada and Mexico. Sorry, colleagues - emotions! repeat

    Why arrange a competition, whose card is more explicit. So everyone understands against whom hypersonic missiles are needed. Not many countries in the world with good air defense.

    does not allow the American aviation, army and navy to acquire a sufficient number of hypersonic missiles
    Probably first you need to create these missiles, then to acquire them the army and navy. But the red line again runs through the lack of financial resources.
