In the USA: In terms of developing hypersonic weapons, we are lagging behind not only Russia, but also China

36

The American press was concerned about the report of American intelligence about the fact that in terms of the development of a hypersonic weapons The United States of America fell behind not only Russia, but also China. The reports say that while the Pentagon is trying to work out a strategy for the development of defense capabilities in terms of creating hypersonic weapons, China has begun an experiment to develop the so-called "hypersonic swarm".


It is noted that the Chinese military industry is working to combine hypersonic objects into a "swarm" to carry out coordinated, controlled attacks.

Information of this kind is discussed by the American columnist David Hambling on the pages of Forbes. In particular, it is pointed out that such "hypersonic swarms are much more dangerous than individual missiles." The author adds that if a "hypersonic swarm" is used, not a single missile defense system in the world, including the American one, will be able to contain it.

Hambling:

They are capable of delivering multiple nuclear warheads, delivering massive strikes against aircraft carrier strike groups or air bases. China is developing them to violate US supremacy.

We are talking about the work of the Beijing University of Technology "Network for hypersonic unmanned swarms." The paper says they are "more than just rockets." In particular, elements of a hypersonic swarm (and, in fact, these are high-speed drones with warheads) are planned to be equipped with tracking and information exchange sensors.

The means of information exchange will allow the elements of the swarm in the mode of using artificial intelligence to coordinate the flight trajectory for the most effective destruction of the target while overcoming the anti-missile defense and air defense systems. The "hypersonic swarm" can also use conventional (non-nuclear) warheads, the massive use of which at high speed can lead to colossal damage.

At the same time, the American press stated that China "can use American developments in the field of creating swarms of drones." For example, it points to the American MSET program of 2017, which implies the simultaneous coordinated use of several missiles.

      Burns up. And there is something yes Especially if you consider that the United States managed to repeat the mistake of the USSR in the 60s of the last century, and quarrel with both Russia and China ...

        They have not yet tried to fight with China seriously, their business is asleep and sees how to get to the billion-dollar Chinese domestic market, and this is a lot of money for any product. And with us ... Yes, in general, imitation, the states need to have a permanent enemy, and the big Iran and Venisuela look dull, their terrorists may be offended, and the Russian Federation, or rather a fearsome ryuzky in earflaps, is just right. We are just an image of the enemy, convenient for both them and our elite to write off our own idleness and energy. Well, why should they seriously destroy something, when everything works fine in the Russian Federation, beads are sold, Michael Olegovichs are born, the legislative and local authorities or their elements are completely under control (hello to the mass of bad laws that are simply not conceivable in their right mind, but quite Explained by orders for deliberate sabotage), raw materials are exported, treasuries are bought. Full control over the territory of the Russian Federation from their elites. And ours themselves are not averse to helping with this. So why seriously aggravate something in such a beautifully occupied area? So they do not aggravate, but simply create visibility for extras, in places that are critically advantageous for THEM, they work quite well with rf-yamalgaz, titanium, Boeing and other visasbergrabi.

        This is exactly what the states need. So far, they have a slight advantage in armament over China and Russia, and in three years they will not have this.
        Therefore, they need, as soon as possible, to make sure that Ukraine starts an offensive on the Lao PDR. Bidon's speech with insults to Putin is not the delirium of an old madman, but a well-planned operation, and not against Putin, but against all of Russia. Now Russia cannot answer, but in three years it will. That is why there is such a rush in the Shtotva establishment. And pushing Kiev to launch an offensive on Donbass, this is one of the conditions, negotiations will not help here, only a fist blow to the jaw of Svidomo will cool their ardor.

        Not everything in the field of technology is determined by the mass of money. Something a lot, but not everything ...

          Here the thought is not completely in the article.
          So they also write that there are only a few such missiles in Russia so far. And then some doubt it.

    I don’t even understand, here on VO we have experts inundated with American projects of hyper missiles in comments. And here it’s that. Secretly, let them be engaged in the project of one missile, one and not "ten." Look, in a couple of years they will come out of the test of mass-dimensional mock-ups. One rocket! The dollar is not rubber.

      It is, yes. But, everyone knows the "Dead Hand" - a complex of automatic control of a massive retaliatory nuclear strike, created in the USSR and used by Russia.

      PMSM is two different technologies. Coordination of actions of several UAVs has long been worked out. EMNIP similar was applied on "Granites". But with missiles they are in trouble. There were so many developments, tests, but nothing came to the real "product". Plus, there are problems with the exchange of information between missiles in flight. In this glade, their horse just stepped on with one hoof, maybe with two, but certainly did not lie ... Moreover, there is no available information that the Chinese and Russians managed to reliably solve this problem.

    GP weapons are not that important for Americans. They solve with their usual arsenal and will solve all their tasks. They have dominance in the fleet, aircraft carriers, bases around the world ... ... and China and the Russian Federation do not have enough protection. Moreover, GP weapons are mainly directed against ships, of which the Russian Federation has few and for their destruction, there will be enough aviation with conventional anti-ship missiles.
    And for the United States, this is a challenge, it is required to update the air defense and missile defense systems on ships and bases, which is difficult and expensive and with an unclear perspective. Why and rage. Now, any operation against the owner of the GP weapon will bring unacceptable losses, even without nuclear warheads on missiles.

    Something confidence in the information supplied by the FSA intelligence services, there is no at all - they lie in the interests of the leading companies of the military-industrial complex. Although what I'm saying is that they are lobbying for the interests of the military-industrial complex. laughing
