Trump's hypersonic “super-duper” missile will be adopted no earlier than 2023

20

The US Department of Defense provided some details about the rocket, which President Donald Trump designated as "super-duper" (super duper). This is a hypersonic missile, tests of which have begun in the United States of America. Recall that Trump during his speech, first stated that the rocket flies 17 faster than the speed of sound, and then, confused, announced that it’s “17 times faster than the fastest rocket to date.”


Pentagon officials, according to CNN, said that in the US, tests of a hypersonic missile are actually being conducted. It is noted that flight tests of this latest weapons in the USA were held in March. Tests are characterized as successful. In one of the sections of the trajectory (above the Pacific Ocean), the “super-duper” rocket reached a speed of up to 17 M, which Trump tried to inform the public about.

It is noted that the tests will continue for at least another 2 years. It is added that a hypersonic missile is unlikely to be in service with the U.S. Army before 2023.

It should be noted that in the United States they are trying to implement a program under which they are going to “catch up” with Russia and China in the development of hypersonic weapons. This is despite the fact that a couple of years ago in Washington it was stated that “Russia has no hypersonic weapons” and that Vladimir Putin’s statements on this subject “are a bluff.”

    Now it’s our turn to say that all US hypersonic attempts are bluff and Walt Disney products ... By the way, all medium-range ballistic missiles are hypersonic by definition laughing in certain sections of the trajectory, they simply must have speeds of up to 4-5 km / s, otherwise they will not fly far. tongue

      And satellites in general fly on hypersound all their lives.

    It seems that Trump himself will soon need a hypersonic missile in order to quickly get it out of the country.

      Article from NG for June 2020:
      https://novayagazeta.ru/articles/2020/06/23/85967-rossiyskaya-raketa-s-amerikanskimi-kartinkami
      “As for the Russian Zircon, absolutely nothing is known about it. And when they write something about him in the Russian media, they illustrate with pictures of the American X-51. And not so much of a similar apparatus, but simply take American photographs and attach them as illustrations to an article about the Russian Zircon. I know of no other example of such impudence. "...
      “I see no reason to believe that Putin's words somehow influenced the development of hypersonic missiles in the United States. The Americans have the first prototype of a completely hypersonic rocket - the ASALM project with a ramjet engine (ramjet engine) made its first flight in October 1979. “...
      “The USSR collapsed in 1991 along with all its research institutes and design bureaus, and the Americans continued all these 30 years of work. And during this time, of course, they have acquired a lot of developments and new technologies.
      Why, then, are the Americans reacting so painfully to reports of a Russian missile?
      Who told you that? We only learned about this from the publication in the American magazine The National Interest. The magazine commanded by Dima Simis is now Dmitry Simes. This is the same magazine that a few days ago published President Putin's article on the history of World War II, which also contains many interesting statements. And the same magazine reported on the Russian missiles "Zircon" and "Avangard", which the Americans are allegedly very concerned about.
      - Why supposedly?

      - And what should the Americans “react painfully” to? There is nothing. As of today, no information has been provided to the public that could serve as at least indirect confirmation of the existence of a Russian hypersonic missile. There is not a single photo, not a single picture, not a single video of the tests. Just nothing. ...
      “Yes, we can proceed from the fact that everything said by Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is always absolutely true. But I doubt the Pentagon shares this approach to threat assessment. ”

      In short - are all these missiles or not? Their photos with or without an airplane?

      Otherwise, it turns out a bazaar, for which someone has to answer ...

    In the American head: Russians don’t have a hyper missile on arms. No, not so. In the brain of a normal Russian person, there’s a gopher classic right away !!!

    They had already successfully tested and were about to adopt lasers and railguns. For the latter, they even managed to build ships.

    To speed up the production of these missiles, Trump ordered the law on defense production to be enacted. This law is usually applied in war or emergency situations for the urgent implementation of various weapons programs.

      And then I imagined that the phrase should sound: "To speed up the production of these missiles, Trump ordered to use the law from the fifth dimension ..."!

      Yes, the Americans have nothing against Kostya Saprykin. The DRMSD treaty does not have a single letter on hypersonic missiles. Therefore, the Americans blather about including everything new that we have in the terms of the negotiations. And some have already become insolent: first destroy, then we will talk. Already more than 30 years old, and Gorbachev's nonsense is still in the heads of the Americans sitting.

    "superfood", "17 times faster than the fastest rocket to date."
    Perhaps by 2023. Probably the “duper” prevents the “super” from adopting. And the Russians are to blame, who stole the only copy of hand-painted technology, as a result of which the United States is so far behind.

    They don't have a hypersonic guided missile. The duck is allowed to save face.

    A country with a powerful economy and huge military budget will naturally sooner or later have its own hypersonic weapons, it is only a matter of time and there is nothing surprising in this, it would be surprising to say the opposite.

    Perfectly not necessary. Especially if such air or sea-based missiles

    You are right, Andrey. There is not a word about hypersonic missiles in the INF. All contracts are based on such parameters as range, cast weight, sometimes starting weight, plus restrictions on cast weight.
    As for the inclusion of new weapons, look at the annexes and agreed statements to the strategic agreements on strategic offensive arms-strategic offensive arms. it says in black and white that new types of weapons are required to be included in the threshold restrictions of these treaties. But this should be done jointly, as part of the work of the Joint Control Commission. And not in the media and from political stands. In any case, weapons systems such as Poseidon and Petrel are suitable for these conditions. And should be negotiable. And about the destruction ... This can be solved in the negotiation process, as was the case with our Temp-2S missile system. which we destroyed according to the contract. But destruction is only if it is prescribed in the contract. Talk of destruction is just PR and nothing more

    Even if it is not present at present, it will not take a long time to create it. Any ballistic missile is essentially hypersonic ....
