Military Watch: What did Putin mean by “counter-hypersound”?


Speaking about the ongoing modernization of the Russian armed forces with extensive financial investments in hypersonic missile Technology, Vladimir Putin announced on June 14 that the country will soon have systems for intercepting hypersonic devices of a potential enemy. The American edition of Military Watch analyzes the plans of the Russian leader to create "counter-hypersound."


It is very likely that we will have the means to combat hypersonic weapons by the time such weapons appear in the leading countries of the world

- emphasized the president of the Russian Federation, while noting that Russia is ahead of the United States in such developments.

Russia's hypersonic potential has been a cause of particular concern in the West since Putin introduced new combat systems in March 2018. Among them are the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, the Avangard intercontinental missile system equipped with a guided hypersonic warhead, and the X-47M2 Dagger hypersonic missile system.

Hypersonic missiles have also been in service with China since 2019, with their DF-17 becoming the first medium-range ballistic missile with a guided warhead. A number of experts believe that Beijing has achieved success in this area through the use of certain Russian technologies.

In parallel, Russia is striving to deploy long-range air defense systems capable of intercepting hypersonic targets. The Russian S-300V4 air defense system is capable of intercepting objects moving at a speed of up to 9 Mach numbers, while the new S-500 systems will have even greater opportunities for counter-hypersound.

Other Russian military developments are noteworthy - in particular, a new modification of the self-propelled anti-aircraft missile system "Shell", which will receive hypersonic missile defense with a speed of 5 Machs and more. The A-235 missile defense system is also designed to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles, although it can only do this at high altitudes. Strategic missile defense will also be able to intercept high-speed targets.

    Overexposure, why not fight against hypersound?

      Do you think that Peresvet can at least bring down something? lol
      Theoretically, it can dazzle the optics of the seeker. But the shooting down by Peresvet has never been shown. request

          Do you know the characteristics of the Peresvet complex? Surprise for whom? For people like you "shadow"or for people like"Winnie (Winnie) "? So for which of you should be a surprise?
          “Counter-hypersound?” And what is it all about? How can this be achieved? Laser weapon? Hypersonic? Or an air defense missile launched into a given area of ​​a nuclear warhead? Or with a mini laser system instead of a warhead, striking from a minimum distance due to the maximum approach with the target? Or is it an electromagnetic gun? Or maybe this is a whole cascade of certain “lotions” under the general name “Counter-hypersound”?
          What if all this garbage is complete, like the Reagan "star wars"? bully

            "Counter-hypersound"?

            Putin is trying to catch up with the American project Glide Breaker, which began immediately after his cartoons. On the internet, this topic is disclosed.
            In short, the Russians are betting on the S-500 and Nudol.

              Glide Breaker, when they do it, then let them boast. In the meantime, they turned on hypersound, at least 2 programs.

                That's when Zircon and others will be adopted, then it will be possible to discuss them. In the meantime, they are at the maximum experimental combat duty stage.
                Curtailed duplicate or ineffective programs. Do not forget that the development of weapons with the Americans is on a competitive basis.

          What may surprise? And for whom? For Russians, this is most likely a surprise. Peresvet power is only 10 kW. The power of an American similar installation is 50 kW, and a marine-based laser is 100 kW. So Peresvet can only shoot down a raven well (they are black) or establish a secure communication channel with a satellite (again, if the weather allows). And ffso. request

          So I am well aware that no one will show me anything unless they decide to remove the secrecy, MO. That is why I am writing about TTX. And experts, how do they know if everything is classified and they do not have access to this information. And when you write about the power of Peresvet, I would like to know where such information comes from.

              And if the experts themselves do not know anything, but fill in, then what?
              The Putin regime is crumbling before our eyes)))))) However, the amendments were voted on, and on July 4 this year they entered into force. After that, you can no longer look. Lied once, and lies the second. This comrade says that there can’t be 27 Machs. And why, one wonders, have the Americans become so sour if this cannot be? And then the question arises: either this one is lying, or the Americans are lying. You choose the answer yourself.

                27 swings - this can't be

                Too shy to ask. Did you go to school? The speed of 27M is more than the first space speed! That is, any body with such a speed will become an AES moving in an elongated elliptical orbit.
                In fact, this lie began with Putin's message to the people's assembly in 2018.

                    Do you still naively believe that any voting in Russia is conducted honestly? And what about chatting, this is what the authorities love. We only have time to remove the macaros from the ears.

                    Expert: almost half of the votes for the amendments to the Constitution were rigged.

                      And what is the expert's evidence? His calculations have nothing to do with reality. How did he count, or is he a psychic, can he read other people's thoughts? If it cannot, then this is just a theory that does not prove anything. So this is the stupid lala you are referring to. Which was confirmed by my previous message.

                        Only here this accuracy does not work, tk. he has nowhere to take the initial data. Specifically, data on who voted for what. And guessing on the coffee grounds, which was demonstrated, is not accurate, it is so, nothing. That is why I wrote about Lala, but you still did not understand this. With understanding, you see, very tight.
                        Moreover, a bunch of people with mathematical knowledge have already refuted his calculations many times.

                        If they didn’t decide anything, then nobody would pay any attention to these amendments. And then everyone began to shout sharply that they shouldn't vote)))))
