The U.S. Is Skeptical That Iran Has Developed Hypersonic Missile

The United States is skeptical that Iran had developed a hypersonic ballistic missile, Sabrina Singh, a Pentagon spokesperson, told reporters on November 17.

Iran’s semi-official Tasnim News Agency last week quoted Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force, as saying Iran had built a hypersonic ballistic missile. At the time, the commander claimed that the missile can maneuver and penetrate advanced defense systems.

Hypersonic ballistic missiles travel and maneuver at least five times faster than the speed of sound, which make them extremely difficult to track and intercept.

“We’ve seen the reports asserted and coming out of Iran, we remain skeptical of these reports,” Singh told a news conference.

The Israeli intelligence is now reportedly trying to confirm that Iran has successfully developed its own hypersonic ballistic missile.

According to Breaking Defense, the Israeli Defense Forces have begun accelerating efforts to develop measures to counter hypersonic missiles in the last two months.

Sources in the Israeli Ministry of Defense told Breaking Defense that the focus is now primarily on helping the defense industry in Israel to develop better early warning sensors and systems that are designed to intercept long-range missiles, including hypersonic ones.

Iran’s large missile program saw a major boost in the last few years. A number of breakthroughs were made not only in the development of ballistic missiles, but also anti-aircraft missiles, cruise missiles and space launch vehicles.

The development of hypersonic ballistic missiles by Iran could, if confirmed, dramatically shift the balance of power in the Middle East.

There is a distinct possibility.

The US was “skeptical” about Iran’s drones and they even said those drones were fake. The US said the same thing about Iran’s missiles and now the “Nuclear deal” is about the Iran missile program.

The US and West were dancing and saying the sanctions would end Iran. How many times have these apes supported riots in Iran and failed again and again?

If the US had any intel on Iran’s hypersonic ballistic missile they would have added that to Iran’s nuclear deal and Zionists would have bit*h none stop. Them saying they are skeptical only means they don’t have a clue which is funny, or like before they are downplaying it.

Rather the other way around. RUssians are too drunk around the clock do invent anything useful.

eli whitney

I never saw the west question Russia when they claimed to have them.

Ahson

I don’t believe so. Russia giving Iran its prized hypersonic tech? when it won’t sell even the Su-35 to Iran?

n tesla

Now that is a feasible argument-and I agree.

Fake

Well the USA was testing nukes in 1942 and the Iranians still haven’t been able to figure it out. So yeah, it makes sense that the US is skeptical of any Iranian engineering accomplishment.

Firstly the US had these from German scientists. Secondly the USA didn’t test nukes but a commitetd genocide with them. Thirdly, it not dfficult to build a nuke but build nough before being atttacked by the jews.

Fake

Sorry, that’s wrong. Operation paperclip happened after the war was over in 1945. Until then all the German scientists were in Germany and unable to build anything close to a nuclear weapon. Genocide is ethnic cleansing we bombed two cities with low yield nukes. Genocide co-champions of WW2 were Germany and Japan. The USA built the bombs while fighting Germany in the Atlantic and Japan in the Pacific. I feel sorry for little Iran having to fight big strong Israel though.

Sangresan

That’s not true. Many German scientists like Einstein defected to the West and contributed to the Manhattan Project.

eli whitney

Are you sure about that? Iran and NKorea have been working hand in hand on missle and nuclear projects for YEARS. Do you seriously believe Iran has not received nukes from NK? That is why no matter how hard they look IAEA cant find evidence.

RoHa

But we are told that Iran is just a few minutes away from bulding nukes. Of course, we have heard that for more than thirty years. It just might be that Iran doesn’t want to build nukes, rather than that they can’t.

Kamikaze iran drones

Muslims, Br0wnies,Negros, iranians,indians, Pakistans, Asians now i explaining you how to run Germany 1. Serbia has no visa policy. No visa needed to enter. 2. With a plane fly to Serbia. 3.Enter to Germany from Serbia.

DONT FORGET SAY THANKS TO ME..

Did I mention that this is a distinct possibility? Because, this is a distinct possibility.
