CSIS Missile Defense Frame



In the United States showed footage of tests of hypersonic weapons... We are talking about a rocket, which is designated as the Common-Hypersonic Glide Body. This is a means of destruction with a hypersonic unit. Its tests took place on March 19, 2020 at the Kauai test site in the Hawaiian Islands.

This is the first video when the rocket itself is shown, as well as its launch from this angle. Previously, footage appeared showing the actual launch of the latest American missile weapons.

According to the US military command, the latest hypersonic weapons have successfully hit a target located on the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

The new video was shown at the annual symposium on space and missile defense. This year the symposium was held via videoconference. The launch presentation of the Common-Hypersonic Glide Body was presented by Lieutenant General Neil Thurgood, Director of the Department of Hypersonic and Space Research.

Details about the rocket itself and the technologies used are currently not given in the United States.

    Yes, they were silent for a long time.
    Or were you not sure that everything went smoothly? request

      No, they drew the cartoon, but it didn't work out, I had to put it out like that. request Losers, the USE results are evident.

      Actually - it's not a big problem to overclock a piece of iron to hypersound. To control it during the flight is, yes, a difficult engineering task .. Although getting to the Pacific Ocean is also an achievement .. laughing

    The question remains: is the unit maneuvering or what?
    The warhead is also hypersonic, but flies along a ballistic trajectory

      Glider. Sliding down in a very rarefied atmosphere.
      Neither aerodynamic rudders nor gas rudders really work.
      It does not have a ballistic trajectory, but special maneuvers.
      you will not do it.

      And if you look closely, they also cut the frames - to speed up.
      For some reason, this crap reminded me of Fu-35. The same Uyo ...

    Some kind of "fat" rocket. The C-HGB diameter is stated to be 34,5 inches (about 88 cm). Apparently, this is only the maximum diameter of the body, excluding the control planes ("wings"). On the rocket, the warhead is closed with a fairing - this adds more diameter. Obviously more than a meter. In addition, the missile (if it is based on submarines), it will also be necessary to shove it into the TPK. If Virginia-Block 5 will be the carriers, then each will be able to take no more than 4 pieces.

      This is problem. Gliders are large, much larger than normal gliders
      cones warhead ICBM.
      Therefore, only one glider is placed on the rocket, and not a pack of conventional warheads.
      Because of this, the Vanguards were placed on 12 old liquid ICBMs, and not on Yars, for example.

    To tell the truth, any country with space technology can launch a rocket and say that it with a hypersonic unit can. It is clear from this video that nothing is clear. Moreover, the video is not of the best quality, as if the Americans suddenly had their good cameras disappeared.

      So they forgot them "on the moon". Or they left it - the film ended anyway.

    Poor Russian language. But, is it really difficult to subtract the text of the article so that there are no such blunders?

    Well fucking pot-bellied dildo took off in night time, and struck the Pacific Ocean with sparks. Lieutenant General Neil Thurgood, director of the Department of Hypersonic and Space Research, filmed the video on his phone and provided a report to the US Department of Defense. Applause, curtain.

    These are not translation difficulties, but simply carelessness. Or unwillingness to read your author's text at least once (I'm afraid there are simply no editors on this resource)

    No, they weren't silent. This video has already been, but from a different angle and from a greater distance. Moreover, recently there was an article on VO, where this video was ...

    Don't write nonsense. The target was at the missile defense range and it was hit. Or you think others are experiencing something differently. Serious and rather unpleasant news for us - and in response, as usual, giggles, hakhanks ...

    Maneuvering. What is the point of testing already spent warheads?

    How hard it went ... Compared to "Nudol"

    Yes, the comparison is lethal. Comparing the speed characteristics of a ballistic missile and an anti-missile is like comparing the speed of a bolt fired from a crossbow and a bullet fired from a rifle ...

    Most likely it was used as a carrier of the "Minotaur". And its diameter is about 2,3-2,8 m, depending on the modification

    Alexei! It would be more correct to say FIT, since all 12 liquid ICBMs will be deployed by 2026-2027. Now there is only a starting minimum - 2 starting and KP

    And it should be so. Have you seen at least one of our 15A71 test launches with Vanguard? I haven't seen ANYONE at all. Usually speaking about "Vanguard" they showed the launch of the "Condor" satellite.

    This is not an air defense missile. This is a missile defense missile. And to compare the launch of an interceptor missile with the launch of an ICBM - you have to be well, just a super academic in the field of rocketry
