In the US, it was suggested that China is developing air-launched hypersonic missiles

15

The United States believes that China is working to develop hypersonic air-launched missiles. This is indicated by the details of the images that have appeared on the Internet.


Writes about this edition The Drive.

Photos posted online show the Chinese H-6N missile carrier carrying a large rocket under its fuselage. And last month, a video appeared on social networks in which the same plane was carrying a similar missile.


Although the newer images show more detail, the overall shape and size shown in them weapons very similar, if not identical, in a video posted in October. The characteristics of this missile may indicate its hypersonic design and the ability to carry a nuclear warhead.

It is believed that the footage from a video posted to Twitter on November 5 showing the heavily loaded H-N6 bomber was taken from the Chinese social network Weibo, from where it was subsequently deleted.

In the US, it was suggested that China is developing air-launched hypersonic missiles


The cargo under the fuselage of the aircraft in the screenshots is the same length as in the October video and is about 12 meters, or about one-third the length of the H-N6.

The Drive concludes that the new images of a Chinese bomber carrying large weapons indicate China's active participation in the hypersonic arms race that is currently taking place in the world.

    It looks like the gray matter of the amers will soon be only red or blue. Is only the United States developing a hyper airborne? With the Chinese mania for secrecy, this is a drain. The brain is strained, is it flying or not?

      I had a higher opinion of US intelligence. They slept all they could. China will soon put missiles into service, and not test it)) This is the United States only doing R&D on hypersound)))

    talk about the active participation of the PRC in the hypersonic arms race, which is now taking place in the world.

    Who would doubt that.
    They excelled in rocket technology. But the modern medium is not enough. As soon as the carrier appears, then you can already get nervous for the Americans, and not only for them ...

      Doccor have not really done well. Compared to some France, the People's Republic of China may have succeeded, perhaps slightly overtaken the United States, but the Chinese in terms of hypersound (of any base) lag behind Russia by 5-10 years, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

        Isn't that a success?
        And the fact that Russia is ahead is not a problem. China will definitely not fight with it in the foreseeable future.

    Well they are developing.
    Undoubtedly.
    Who would doubt that!
    They would be fools if they did not develop.
    But what are the successes? ...
    It's a secret!

    Why such a sharp jump around the world in terms of hypersound, after our president's statements about the presence of ??????

    Features of this missile may indicate its hypersonic design and ability to carry a nuclear warhead.

    So what? Or they may not indicate. Fortune telling on coffee grounds negative

    Tu-16 with a "log" of the same size under its belly took off from the Olenegorsk airfield back in 1973, so what? Also hypersound?

    And then there is no need to assume, because China has long and stubbornly been strengthening and modernizing its Armed Forces. He does not hesitate to show samples of new types of his weapons even at parades.

    If such a large log, then exactly hypersound, when our President said, then these are cartoons, how the products flew, it seems to everyone, but the states have a budget request to oppose everyone and overtake everyone)))) laughing

    Not long ago, information about this rocket passed - they were presented to larger analogues of the "dagger".
