The United States is deploying a hypersonic complex without a launch platform and missiles

17

Test run of the "planing body", March 19, 2020



The United States has yet to begin testing its hypersonic missiles as they are still under development. However, the Pentagon intends now to deploy army units that will use this type weapons.

By the end of this fiscal year, that is, in September, all the equipment needed by the unit, including training facilities, will be delivered

- explained in the military department, despite the fact that the country's armed forces do not possess a single functioning hypersonic missile, let alone a launch platform for its ground version.

As noted in the Pentagon, the appearance of a military projectile is expected no earlier than the 2023 financial year. An industrial base for the production of hypersonic weapons is currently under way. Lockheed Martin is already working with the Air Force to develop an air-launched hypersonic missile. Dynetics is developing a "planing body" [gliding warhead] - an ultra-maneuverable vehicle without a propulsion system that separates from the launch vehicle and uses its speed - in excess of Mach 5 - to approach the target much faster than a standard ballistic missile.

As previously explained in DARPA, which oversees development from the Pentagon, the ground-based mobile system will be represented by a mobile unit designed to launch a two-stage missile and a hypersonic glider.

      But this is how you need to teach in a real way:
      (Yes, the moderators will forgive me. You cannot throw out a word from the pestn ...) Methodical instructions good

        You don't know the original well. The story has a continuation, back in the 15th year we skated. Actually, why am I? The dog is like the owner - and vice versa. Therefore, those who have a naval kite and a naval raft bit the owners, now they are, without missiles, but with a hypersonic "pidrosdil" ...
        So - the full version

        But of course dill has ridna mova ... Interesting language, only unprintable - completely. Well do not understand "bears" printed wassat

        Well, if we take the "methodological instructions", then from, albeit a cursed film, but in my opinion they effectively explain:

      There is clearly an element of misinformation in this message from the Americans. And it most likely refers to the timing of the appearance of hypersonic missiles in the United States. Namely.
      As noted in the Pentagon, the appearance of a military projectile is expected no earlier than the 2023 fiscal year.

      At the same time, it is doubtful that the Pentagon IN THE IDLE - just like that - will spend money on ground platforms with the maintenance of the corresponding unit of troops as much as 2 years!

        Yes, probably not two, probably five years. This is how much money you can "master".

    Actually, hypersound is 6 and above the speed of sound, and not 5, like in the USA! We need to use the available time to maximize the saturation of the army with hypersonic weapons.

      That's right! And we need to meet this maximum saturation of the army with hypersonic weapons in a shorter time than 2 years!

    constructs a "planing body"
    And they are planning the appearance of this "body" by 2023, as well as testing, putting into service. This means that until 30 years of age, one can definitely not expect sharp military inclinations bordering on the possibility of a war. And then, like the Americans, the card will fall.

    They are doing everything right.
    Taking into account modern bureaucratic features, creating new parts is a lengthy process. And then there is the difficulty in the future development of a new missile system. And so - supplies to the troops will begin, and they already have ready-made parts for new weapons. In essence, this is usually done: a commander of a non-existent unit is appointed and he already organizes the process of organization. And weapons and equipment come later - even after a few years. There are plenty of examples.
    Well, and a positive media effect: "We already have missile units for hypersonic missiles." And the fact that there are no missiles themselves - well, that is ... the average man will not notice.

    Russia has created a strategic version of the Avangard glider.
    Launch from ICBMs.
    America wants to launch its glider with medium-range ballistic missiles.
    Which is not yet.

    They can't be 30 years old. In the 15th year of the commercials, there was a calculation by American analysts that by 2025 the Russian army would move to a qualitatively different level, and after 2025 the American army would begin to lose ground. It is clear that analytics is such a thing, but both ours and the bourgeois are poking around, so the hour X is marked.

    Everyone laughed at the Americans, but they immediately posted a video. How to study without a gun permit. I also drove a 15-meter pine tree for half a year.
