SpaceX Joins Pentagon Developing 7,500 MPH Weapons Delivery Rocket That Can Reach Anywhere On Earth In An Hour

Given Elon Musk’s deepening ties to China, it’s no wonder the Pentagon thought it a great time to sign a contract with SpaceX to “jointly develop a rocket” that can “deliver up to 80 tons of cargo and weaponry anywhere in the world” in just an hour’s time.

Tests on this rocket are expected to begin next year, according to Futurism. The rocket is expected to move weapons around the world 15 times faster than existing aircraft already do.

General Stephen Lyons, head of US Transportation Command said: “Think about moving the equivalent of a C-17 payload anywhere on the globe in less than an hour.”

He continued: “I can tell you SpaceX is moving very, very rapidly in this area. I’m really excited about the team that’s working with SpaceX.”

A trip from Florida to Afghanistan, which is 7,652 miles, could be done “within about an hour” with the 7,500 MPH rocket, according to The Times. It takes conventional aircraft about 15 hours to make the same trip.

The project indicates that SpaceX is leaning on military partnerships – and also indicates that the U.S. military clearly doesn’t see Elon Musk as a security threats, despite his deepening ties to China (which we have detailed here). SpaceX also landed a contract last week to manufacture four missile-tracking satellites, Futurism notes.

The army has also previously approached Musk’s company about converting its Starlink satellites into a military navigation network. The Space Force has also said they are working closely with SpaceX after they awarded the company a contract in August.

If this program has the resounding success of the Hyperloop line Elon Musk was supposed to install in Chicago, we can’t wait to see these promises come to fruition!

‘Joins’? They own that prick Musk.

Exactly what I have been saying for a long time and I was right again.
We have professional secret Rømer under the carpet while Russia and China have obsolete Mach on the front page.

With a load of 80 tons they won’t even be able to take off, ridiculous.

François

Between 15 hours and 1 hour, not really a significant change in a battle outcome…
And above with exponential operational cost. Psychological war?…Ahahaha… Ridiculous!

Space -X has always been a front for the pentagon. It allows them to launch all kinds of ” goodies” under the guise of civilian projects. Dont fall for the illusion.

Don’t flatter yourself,video cards don’t make for the only means of innovations,you need scientists!

In modern wars, we have witnessed that higher technology and expensive means rarely ensure victory:
Yemen, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and even Vietnam.

Fake x= bullsht marketing,not enough talent usa does not have the proper scientists infact can’t even build su[persinic passewnger planes,let alone fake x moon tours these vile lietards respresent,usas got sht!
