"17 times faster than the Russian": what kind of rocket Donald Trump spoke about


Recently, US President Donald Trump said that his country is developing a rocket that will be 17 times faster than the Russian and all existing analogues in the world. Now it became clear what rocket Trump was talking about.


We are now creating an incredible military machinery. I call it a super duper rocket. And I heard recently that it is 17 times faster than those that are available now

- Trump said at the ceremony of presenting the new flag of the US Space Forces.

Trump explained that Russia’s missiles are 5 times faster than the speed of sound, and China is working on missiles that are 5-6 times faster.

Speaking of a new missile, the head of the White House, most likely, had in mind the aeroballistic AGM-183A. So says the chief editor of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland" Viktor Murakhovsky, whose words he cites TASS.

As I understand it, this is a hypersonic missile developed by the US Air Force under the AGM-183A program

- said the expert.

Murakhovsky explained that according to the calculations of American developers, this rocket should reach a maximum speed of 20 Machs, and its firing range should be about 900 km.

He emphasized that the Americans did not make any breakthrough. To create it, existing technologies and materials are used.

The ARRW (Airborne Rapid Weapon Rapid Weapon) hypersonic air-launched ballistic missile already exists as prototypes and is being tested. The development of the AGM-183A is led by Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control, which received $ 2018 million in August 480.

He added that now it is being installed on the external suspension of the B-52 Stratofortress strategic bomber. The solid-fuel stage provides acceleration, then "the hypersonic block itself flies along a ballistic trajectory."


At the same time, the expert doubted the ability of the missile warhead to maintain high speed at an altitude below 4-5 km. According to Murakhovsky, Trump talks about her high speed, referring to flying with an accelerator in the stratosphere. But Americans are unlikely to achieve a controlled flight at a speed of about 20 Machs. So "so far, such statements are more in the field of hype and PR."

    In fact, this is the usual race of cartoons ....
    The announced maximum speed of our under rocket is 27M (1st space), and now multiply it by 17 times ....

    From the same series as the USA Railguns, landing on the moon of the Russian Federation (in the year 15) and controlled thermonuclear reaction in Iran ....

    Recently, US President Donald Trump said that his country is developing a rocket that will be 17 times faster than the Russian and all existing analogues in the world.

    You will not praise yourself, no one will praise. Trump doesn’t know that 20 Machs in a warhead detaching from a rocket have more than 10 Machs in a Dagger rocket, 2 times, and not 17 times. Did he even study at school? laughing

    The solid-fuel stage provides acceleration, then "the hypersonic block itself flies along a ballistic trajectory."

    Such a mini analogue of the Vanguard. But this is not a rocket that will fly on Mach 20, but a controlled hypersonic unit. Liar Trump. We are at the forefront of the planning block Yu-71.

    according to the calculations of American developers, this rocket should reach a maximum speed of 20 Machs

    This is clearly not an analogue of the dagger. Rocket Dagger accelerates to 10 Mach. It is the rocket itself, and not like the separating block of the Americans.

    Trump explained that Russia’s missiles are 5 times faster than the speed of sound, and China is working on missiles that are 5-6 times faster.

    Hollow Trump. Zircon flies on 9 Machs, Dagger on 10 Machs, Vanguard has a detachable controlled unit, which accelerates according to some information somewhere to 20-27 Machs (I don’t remember the exact numbers now).
    Even if we take his untruthful words for the truth, then how can Mach 20 purely mathematically be larger, as he said, 17 times the speed of Mach 5? And this man is still leading the country. 85 Machs more than 5 Machs 17 times. In short, he said nonsense. Hammer in.

    Since Lockheed Martin is engaged in this super-duper missile, you need to stock up on popcorn. After all, it was they who created the famous F-35 underspring, which has a kilometer-long list of flaws, in which the other day a cherry appeared on the cake: a “5th generation airplane” was not recommended to fly at speeds above ONE MAK. Something there peels off and the antenna falls off. This means that on a rocket a warhead will suddenly ignite and stabilizers will fall off.
    We are waiting, sir.

    "17 times faster than the Russian": what kind of rocket Donald Trump spoke about

    A vivid example is that consideration in military technology is the key to understanding geopolitical processes. What can I say? Neighing and only. lol Ours are not better. One S-700 Zhirinovsky what it was worth! wassat One thing is that Putin’s speeches are carefully written in this regard at least. The design of his speeches (cartoons) is a separate topic. But I don’t remember Putin, for example, from Trump.

    Hello everyone! If, theoretically, we talk about the Russian super-hypersonic 5 ++ rocket, then how can the words "hype" and "PR" be translated into Russian? I do not watch a “filmoscope”, not in the subject ... Thank you!

        Well, can you explain these two words in Russian? I asked a specific question. Or are you Parsley from the puppet theater?

    Yes, in general, no one really believed and was not scared. America’s pouting has long been a known fact. To disperse a rocket to the first space (max 28) is a simple matter and everyone has been able to do this since the beginning of the 60s of the last century. The problem was getting where it was necessary at such speeds. It is one thing to throw a load into the sky, where +/- 40 km is irrelevant, and a completely different alignment when it is necessary to stick into a 5 by 5 meter square. So, a flag in hand and a cactus in .... for vigor.
