Americans showed a strange video test hypersonic missiles


March 19, 2020 in the United States passed the second test of the body of the universal controlled maneuverable planning hypersonic unit (warhead) Common Hypersonic Glide Body (C-HGB). According to a statement from the Pentagon, testing is considered successful.


It should be noted that a strange five-second video has already been posted on the US Navy’s YouTube channel, which should supposedly indicate a “breakthrough”. However, from the video itself it is not at all clear what flies, where and how it flies, and whether it flies at all. That is, published frames absolutely do not prove and do not confirm anything. On the contrary, they raise only questions such as "was there a boy?"

Under the video, it is indicated that a joint experiment between the Navy and the US Army was carried out at the Pacific missile range "Kauai" (Hawaiian Islands) at 10:30 local time. It is specified that the aforementioned warhead, in the end, "having developed hypersonic speed, has reached the selected point of impact."

At the same time, Vice Admiral John Wulf, the head of the US Navy strategic systems development program, said that the tests were based on the success that was laid down the previous time. Then, in his words, "C-HGB achieved sustainable hypersonic planning at a selected distance."

The building block of the planning block tested today is now ready for the transition to the development of weapons systems for the Navy and the US Army

- added Michael White, deputy director of research and engineering programs at the Pentagon.


We remind you that the first flight test was held on October 30, 2017 at the same training ground. True, then it passed under the abbreviation FE-1. It should be clarified that the Americans are trying to develop a universal hypersonic unit to equip the Navy, Air Force and Ground Forces. The work is carried out under the control of the Army Hypersonic Project Office.

At the same time, it is too early to talk about success. There is a high probability that the Americans decided to demonstrate at least such an “achievement”, against the background of real successes of developers of hypersonic weapons in Russia and China, so as not to lose face.

        And no matter what, the main thing is not a cartoon. Agree, is it already progress?

          Yeah. This should be commented by a profile health worker.

    Something did not see hypersonic speed, probably, they shot a video with a powerful slowdown ...

      Do you determine hypersound in the eye? Of course, I heard that the Vanguard with the 6M Dagger was taken from the spot ...

        Yes, I saw our video with such an instant, startling start and expected something like this here, but, see, Americans are now having overwhelming secrecy ...

        Only this, it seems, was the start of our missile defense.

        ArkharovThis is a hyperslight! The rocket itself has long flown away. Probably.

    To compare the test of a new missile defense, it somehow leaves the launch faster. winked

      They say that recently people with one very interesting mutation have appeared: a built-in toolless meter for various physical quantities? I don’t know, a lie, probably, as always?

        Have you read in the comics? If you can’t believe your eyes, try to trust your hearing. Video recording is playing at the same speed, both rockets launched on the same planet, the speed of sound propagation is the same, about 335 m / s. Just compare the sound. In addition, missiles have a different purpose and range, it is obvious that the missile has a lower mass; I don’t see the reasons why she cannot fly faster.
        If this is not convincing for you, you can go to Kazakhstan and wait for the next launch, measure the speed, then we'll talk. hi

          No, not in the comics, but on the Reporter. But does it never occur to you that these are more likely missiles of a completely different class and purpose, and, for example, is a quick start important for a missile defense?

            For a ballistic missile, a quick start is equally important. To have time to leave the missile defense zone. This is also a big problem.

      What a comparison !? Are you sure that this is not the same Soviet missile defense missile? Or did you see the contours of it at the start? Or can you tell by the smoky trail - is it new or is it old? laughing wink

        What a comparison !?

        Reread the comments, the public discussed the speed of the American missile, I just brought a video of the new missile defense for comparison, so to speak - for clarity.

        Are you sure that this is not the same Soviet missile defense missile? Or did you see the contours of it at the start? "Or will you be able to identify it by a smoky trail, new or that old?

        Why did I read your comment? He is probably old, because the details have not changed. Nick is old, a fly-skull skullcap is present on the avatar. Nothing changed.

    On a dark night, blacks steal coal. laughing That's all the video. Ours, you might think, where are there open and transparent in the video of such tests.
