US Navy intends to develop its own hypersonic anti-ship missile

The US Navy intends to develop its own hypersonic anti-ship missile. According to Flightglobal, the US Navy has already launched a program.


A research program launched by the US Navy called "Screaming Arrow" is to identify technologies that can be used to create a hypersonic anti-ship missile. Currently, the Navy is looking for developers who will be engaged in the creation and testing of new ammunition.

The details of the program itself were not disclosed, but it is known that within its framework, the developers must create an air-launched hypersonic missile. It is especially emphasized that already existing technologies should be used in the development, which will significantly reduce the cost of development and production of missiles in the future.

The main carrier of the new ammunition should be the F / A-18E / F Super Hornet carrier-based fighters. The rocket being created must be compact and relatively light so that one Super Hornet can carry four hypersonic anti-ship missiles, and the landing mass of the fighter with suspended missiles allows landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier.

In command fleet stated that the development of a hypersonic anti-ship missile system would be a response to a similar weaponcreated by Russia and China. The US Navy fears that Russian and Chinese hypersonic missiles may become a threat to American aircraft carriers, and the presence of an F / A-18E / F Super Hornet with a hypersonic anti-ship missile in the air will significantly reduce such a threat.

In the future, the use of a new anti-ship missile system for ground targets is not ruled out.

      In the United States, the characteristics of their AGM-183A ARRW hypersonic missile were first revealed. Probably, it was Donald Trump who called it "super-duper" missile - according to the US Air Force, it can cover a distance of 1600 km in 10-12 minutes. .. in March, the US Ground Forces, together with the Navy, successfully conducted the first flight tests of their hypersonic gliding warhead, which, after launch, flew at hypersonic speed and hit the target at a given point. It is believed that this device is capable of developing a maximum speed of M - 17.

        I strongly doubt this.

          USA - lovers of making Hollywood shots. To simulate the successful defeat of a target by a conventional missile by filming the moment of impact, with the announcement that this hypersonic has done everything - they can do that.
          But the threat of hypersound is real, palpable and fatal, if nothing is done now, air defense missile defense must be prepared to intercept such targets. Let with the creation of a curtain of fire with cannons or something else, but it's too late to sit back.

            Photo experts can always spot a fake. By frame rate. And are there any cuts and holes in the video.
            If a photo of a video defeat is being released, then it is genuine.
            Therefore, there are no frames of Zircon hitting the target. The speed will immediately become clear
            missiles at the time of defeat.

          Still would ! They have not yet acquired M = 5-M = 8, but they are already dreaming about M = 17! Like ... "what should we build a house!? Let's draw and live!" ...

            There the rocket is kind of like an aeroballistic one; it is quite possible to heat it up to M = 17 (ICBMs have been able to do this for a long time).

              Duc, "raskochegarit" to M = 5-6 is even more possible! Yes, just something similar is not observed among tactical missile weapons!

                They fired up: let me remind you that the Americans so far the only oneswho at the very least showed hypersonic products: X-15 and X-51. But, apparently, they decided that the hypersonic cruise missile of the "classic" appearance is too complicated, now they turned towards aeroballistics, and there conceptually much higher speeds are achievable (with their own nuances, it is true).

                However, they will finish it - we will take a look. All these statements may turn out to be, let's say, an artistic exaggeration: not only ours are able to draw cartoons, after all.

    We need to prepare air defense. Cannons do not shoot down hypersound.

      The question is in guidance systems that allow you to correctly create a fire curtain. Then hypersonic speed will only play into the hands, because thanks to it, the energy of interaction of projectiles / fragments with a rocket increases many times, and any hit will most likely lead to its destruction.
      And we just have such an MSA.
      Vaughn, not so long ago "Aldar Tsydenzhapov" shot down an anti-ship missile from a 100-mm gun mount, which is not very suitable for firing at such targets: https://topwar.ru/178250-novyj-rossijskij-korvet-sbil-iz-pushki -krylatuju-raketu.html

        First, it was a healthy subsonic cruise missile. Secondly, the gun mount is also designed for the needs of air defense.

        Not from a good life knocked down. But because Calm missed.
        The last time it turned out was Muson.

    And the hypersonic debris reaches the ship.

    If you rely on artillery, then this is a complete flight.

    So it is possible to produce different programs, the result is more difficult to get.

    That sooner or later they will do I have no doubt. Another thing is that the lag behind the Russian Federation in this matter is so 5 years according to the most conservative estimates. And of course, he neighing at the quote:

    It is especially emphasized that already existing technologies should be used in the development, which will significantly reduce the cost of development and production of missiles in the future.

    Nimitz has 48 super hornets,
    192 PKR missiles, plus aug order missiles, and there are one, two submarines, one tickender dog and two or more Arlie Burke,
    And they can also pull up strategists 52 or something like that, which can have this type of missile defense system as in the article there may be several dozen on one board,
    Whatever one may say, but this is a formidable force that must be reckoned with.

      Yes, yes, because we will also shoot with calibers, and will not use the entire nuclear arsenal in action.

        If the only hope is for a nuclear arsenal,
        This means that the classic battle has been lost!
        Then why are these expensive programs for the navy and so on?

          Because you just need to? Or will you shoot bearded devils in Syria with nuclear weapons? Or in Pridnestrovie, immediately blow a poplar or yars if it smells fried.

            For bearded devils and transnistria, the Russian Federation makes calibers, and strategists such as Tu 22 and Tu 160, and now even a pack, right?
            By the way, what will be the task at su 57 in the skies of moldavia?

    How many such hypersonic programs have the Americans already closed? Who remembers?
