China's hypersonic missile test caught on video

On July 4, China launched a hypersonic cruise missile from the launch site of the space center in the Taiyuan tract. The missile was launched in the direction of one of the PRC military training grounds, located in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, at about 1.30 Moscow time.

During the flight, the rocket covered an approximate distance of 2200 km.

Apparently, the test was not accidentally conducted on this day, since July 4 is celebrated as Independence Day in the United States. The flight of the hypersonic missile was Beijing's response to Washington's expansionist plans. The day before, an American RC-135S Cobra Ball reconnaissance aircraft showed increased activity in the area, apparently waiting for launch.

Meanwhile, tests of such weapons in the United States are not so successful. So, on June 29, the launch of a promising ultra-high-speed CPS rocket ended in failure due to problems that arose in the operation of the second stage. Such a failure could seriously slow down the US hypersonic development program.

Earlier, the head of NASA, Bill Nelson, in an interview with the German newspaper Bild expressed concerns about the development of the Chinese lunar program. In his opinion, one day the PRC will land on the moon and claim its rights to the Earth's natural satellite. In response, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called on the American side to stop slandering Beijing's peaceful space programs.

    That's who you need to take an example from. And the stations have already been on the moon, and the fleet has been rebuilt.
    And we are all chewing snot, we can’t deal with our elites, damn ...

      Motivate, comrades, your cons.
      That's interesting.

    Even compared to ours, which flew over the edge, some kind of long plasma trail. And it flies slower, like a regular jet plane. Visually does not pull on hypersound ...

      You can see how the second stage engine fires up and accelerates, the rocket is still rising and has not reached its maximum speed.

    I agree that visually does not pull on hypersound! No more than 4-5 strokes. The Chinese, as always, wishful thinking is given as reality. Here ours flew, so flew! Real like lightning!

    What is Chinese, what is ours in Ukraine, they fly like on rails, that is, at least in this area it is not particularly difficult to shoot down such a missile

    They caught a bugger from one of the physicists, who leaked hypersound to the Chinese. The US doesn't have a rocket yet, but the Chinese already do. Obviously not from a great scientific potential.
