Ricordiamo come i missili ipersonici siano in grado di volare, di cambiare rotta, e di fare manovre elusive a velocità di cinque volte quella del suono nell’alta atmosfera.

Sviluppati all’inizio da cinesi e russi quali missili antinave, adesso quelle superpotenze ne dispongono anche di valenza strategica.

Gli attuali sistemi radar occidentali non sono in grado di tracciarli ed al momento non sono disponibili missili-antimissile in grado di intercettarli e neutralizzarli.

Gli Stati Uniti e l’occidente in genere è strategicamente esposto ad una nuova tipologia di arma che li lascia indifesi di fronte ad un attacco. Evento questo sempre possibile e probabile.

Russia. Nuovi o perfezionati missili ipersonici. Kh-47M2 Kinzhal e 3M22 Zircon.

Cina. I lanciatori dei missili ipersonici DF-17 sono diventati stealth.

Putin. Stanno diventando operativi i missile ipersonici per la marina.

Russia. I missili intercontinentali ipersonici Avangard sono operativi.

Russia’s ‘invincible’ hypersonic weapon that can strike anywhere in the world in MINUTES will be ready for war by 2020

Russia’s city-destroying super-nuke Avangard that travels at TWENTY times the speed of sound will be ready for take-off next year

Gli Stati Uniti sono in allarme per i super missili ipersonici russi

Missili ipersonici: rottura dell’attuale stabilità strategica tra Stati Uniti, Cina e Russia e rivoluzione nelle tattiche militari

Missili a 6 volte la velocità del suono, testati in Cina nuovi velivoli ipersonici

Armamenti Nucleari. È in atto una corsa al riarmo per la prossima guerra.

Per molto, troppo, tempo gli Stati Uniti hanno creduto che la loro propaganda fosse vera.

Brusco e doloroso il risveglio alla realtà dei fatti.

Sia la Cina sia la Russia hanno sviluppato tecnologie altamente innovative: non sono per nulla arretrate nella progettazione e costruzione di armi altamente sofisticate. Anzi. Hanno superato le capacità americane.

Accorerebbe fare una grandissima attenzione.

Nel momento in cui gli equilibri militari fossero stati stravolti, la guerra mondiale nucleare sarebbe non solo possibile, ma quasi sicura.

Biden concerned over Chinese hypersonic missiles.

Washington, Oct 20 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he is concerned about Chinese hypersonic missiles, days after a media report that Beijing had tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic glide weapon.

Asked by reporters as he was boarding Air Force One for a trip to Pennsylvania whether he was concerned about Chinese hypersonic missiles, Biden said, “Yes.”

Hypersonic weapons travel in the upper atmosphere at speeds of more than five times the speed of sound, or about 6,200 kph (3,853 mph).

The Financial Times said at the weekend that China had tested a weapon in August that flew through space and circled the globe before cruising down toward a target that it missed. China’s foreign ministry denied the report.  

The test took place as the United States and its global rivals quicken their pace to build hypersonic weapons – the next generation of arms that rob adversaries of reaction time and traditional defeat mechanisms.

“Hypersonic weapons are strategic game-changers with the dangerous potential to fundamentally undermine strategic stability as we know it,” Senator Angus King of Maine said on Monday, adding that “the U.S. cannot lag in this development or allow for blind spots as we monitor the progress of our competitors.”

The White House has raised concerns about Chinese hypersonic missile technology through “diplomatic channels,” spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday.

In September, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency successfully tested an air-breathing hypersonic weapon capable of speeds faster than five times the speed of sound. It was the first successful test of the class of weapon since 2013.

 Companies such as Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Technologies  are working to develop the U.S.’s hypersonic weapon capability.

Hypersonic weapons are potential “nightmare weapons,” King said. “The implications of these weapons under development by China or Russia could be catastrophic.”
