“We have peeped”: in the USA they explained the superiority of Russia in hypersound


American weapons developers are looking for an excuse for lagging behind Russia in the development of hypersonic weapons.


A publication by the Washington Examiner focused on the Republican readership published material in which two well-known US experts expressed their views on this issue.

According to Mike White, assistant director of hypersonic development, one of the reasons for the US lag in the field of hypersound was Washington's refusal to use this Technology in the development of new weapons in favor of other technologies.

White’s argument was further developed by Director of Defense Research and Development for Modernization, Mark Lewis, who stated that the openness of the United States, which published its research in the public domain, was another reason for the backlog of American developers.

The official was convinced that Russia and China used American publications on hypersonic research to create their weapons:

We publish a lot of materials, and they read them.


Lewis noted that now the creation and adoption of hypersonic technologies has become a priority for Washington, however, hypersonic systems will appear in the United States no earlier than mid-2020.

    In fact ... the Americans were late to rename their Air Force as a VKS - we had time before ....
    And they were late to call 1-2 space velocity of the falling warheads - hypersound. We first thought of it.

    And the Americans all the time relied on subsonic low-flying missiles (VO). Since it’s cheaper, more inconspicuous, more economical, they fly further, more breaks in, for natives it will do. There Jews in general with planning bombs hammer Syria, and nothing comes off.

      And I thought that hypersound was a ramjet engine, and was this an old rocket attached to an airplane and proudly called hypersound?

    Well, yes, yes, mean Russian! Turned out to be smarter. than the State Department says. Vilely merged the Old on the topic "Cold", this is St. Petersburg work on the scramjet, and the brilliant Yankees could not translate into metal. The treacherous hand of the Kremlin is everywhere!

      Do we have this scramjet in metal?

        Yes. And how long. In the year 85 they tested. But it turned out a number of nuances in which the Yankees forehead and rested, the topic was closed. The developments were transferred to the Zircon theme.

          God forbid. But at the request of "Zircon" for some reason, a photo of the Boeing X-51 is issued. You do not have a photo of Zircon?

            And his photo is nowhere to be found. The secret is big, however. I can only assume, judging by indirect evidence, the appearance of Zircon will be very similar to the P-800 Onyx. It was reported that Zircons are suitable for our universal shipboard launchers, which means that the hull structure (in theory) should be similar in size and design. Actually, there is such a thought that Zircon (although to be precise, this is the general name of the topic of development of a whole family of anti-ship missiles) - the essence is the same Onyx, only with a new engine. Apparently, they decided or somehow circumvented the nuances that the St. Petersburg scramjet had.

              Very unlikely. Onyx has 2M, and hypersound should start with 6M. These are fundamentally different engines.

                Mass dimensions allow. Onyx SPARD starts at Mach 0,8. The scramjet begins to work on Mach 2,5. Only the accelerating solid propellant dvigun will change, will be more powerful.

                  I read that from 5-6, but I will not argue. Maybe you are right.

                    Here, most likely, there was a misunderstanding. Yes, the officially internationally recognized lower limit of hypersound starts with 5 max, but this has nothing to do with the launch of the marching engine. The current working (our) scramjet engine models are launched between 2 and 3 max and then accelerate to hypersound. To solid propellants, such as Iskander-Dagger and others like them, everything is one and the same. Accelerate from scratch.

    “Why do we not have hypersonic missiles in the USA, but do Russians have them?”
    - Eeee, mmmmm ... they stole them from us!

    And you can’t argue, British logic 80lvl laughing

    And the technology that they were working on instead of hypersound was an “invisible” stealth that turned out to be zilch. And by the way, you can again blame the treacherous Russians, Pyotr Ufimtsev, for example:
