US Falls Behind In Hypersonic Weapons Race After Another Failed Test

Illustrative Image

 

Originally published on ZeroHedge

America is lagging behind its international competitors in the hypersonic weapons race. This week’s test provided more insight into just how badly the U.S. is behind. 

Bloomberg was the first to report the Common Hypersonic Glide Body atop a two-stage missile booster that failed after an “anomaly” occurred during launch at the Missile Range Facility in Hawaii.

The booster failed to ignite, which would’ve accelerated the rocket in excess of Mach 5, at which the glide body separates and uses speed and an unpredictable path to strike targets without being detected by the most advanced defense shields in the world.

“While the Department was unable to collect data on the entirety of the planned flight profile, the information gathered from this event will provide vital insights,” said Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cdr. Tim Gorman in a statement. He didn’t provide additional details about the failed test.

Gorman said officials would use data from the rocket’s failures to correct the issue for future tests.

Even though the hypersonic weapons program has experienced multiple “fight test anomalies” over the last year, the spokesman was confident the delivery of the weapons to modern battlefields would occur “on target dates beginning in the early 2020s.”

The previous test of the glide body ended early when the booster rocket failed, which prevented the missile from leaving the launch pad. The Navy and Army have jointly been working on developing hypersonic weapons.

The Air Force has also been working on a hypersonic weapon. After several failed tests earlier this year, the service successfully tested a hypersonic missile off Southern California in May.

It’s no secret the U.S. is falling behind the hypersonic weapons race as the largest military in the world, in terms of size and defense budget, has yet to field hypersonic weapons.

Meanwhile, Russia (see: here) and China (see: here) have completed successful tests and or fielded super fast weapons on the modern battlefield.

The Biden administration recently revealed a new trilateral security pact between Australia – United Kingdom – United States (AUKUS) partnership, a move to “accelerate the development of advanced hypersonic and counter-hypersonic capabilities.”

The takeaway is the U.S. is lagging behind the competition in fielding hypersonic weapons as threats of spillovers from the conflict in Ukraine are undoubtedly rising.

To be honest if this conflict in Ukraine has shown anything it’s that US equipment is sub standard. This may be the reason the US does not want a direct confrontation with Russia, they choose proxy wars instead. Look how badly their “patriot” system performed ( not to mention their abysmal performance in Afghanistan)

NO! What this is proving is that the elites will never strike each other. These weapons are harmless to them because they only attack civilians and stupid people who enlist in their militaries.

Putin and Biden will never strike each other. They are not afraid of these weapons.

This is because American military industries care more about profit than performance. They know US will buy whatever they make, if it doesn’t work US military will bring it back, get it fixed and then it will be even more expensive because it’s “upgraded”

and that’s the reason why Russia is wining 2000 meters in 5 months??? because Russia is sooooo strong all eastern Europe countries are fleeing out of Ukraine??? because of the unbelieveable power of Russia they sanctionize Russia, Belarus, Kaliningrad, Spitzbergen etcetc.. the West is full of fear, they do not deliver weapons to Ukraine because they could be target of all these i unbelieveable wonder-weapons 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

This is absolutely ridiculous. A top-Secret weapon development program is being reported on by the main stream news. Up to the moment developments, complete with slick graphics and nearly every relevant detail of the project. This would never happen unless it was being permitted from the top.

You have to ask yourself, “Why is the main stream news giving us this information?”

We are being manipulated by people who intend to depopulate and enslave us all. The New World Order is emerging from the shadows. The leadership of all our countries are working towards this “Great Work”. There is a war being waged against the ‘Useless Eaters’ of planet Earth, which in their eyes is nearly all of us. World Government and the end of freedom and liberty. It’s ‘Their’ planet, and they don’t want to share it with us anymore.

If it makes you feel any better it was published on a USA-technical website-not all Americans are “red-necks ” -young people have had enough and are fighting back in the USA.

Bob Dole

I don’t agree. If the pentagon did not want this information to be published it would not be published. And if it were leaked out, such as the deployment list of soldiers in space, it would get heavily censored and quickly erased from public memory. Bloomberg would not be writing articles about it.

And this Young vs Old narrative you are buying into, this is how our rulers bring about generational change, which they guide every step of the way. Don’t be so naive. The only fighting you are doing is fighting for a world where you will be enslaved or slaughtered.

Come on Bob since when did the “Great ” USA -owner of the world admit its failures -give me a logical reason ?-Naive -who are you kidding ? I am in constant touch with many USA .org websites and have been for years -the young have organised strikes for labor unions although labelled “commies ” -and won.

IMHO

Why don’t people wake up??????? It’s only ridiculous because you don’t understand the goals!!!

All of this is to keep civilians in fear and control YOU. They will never use these weapons against each other. Putin will never strike Zelensky, much less Biden or any of the other causes of war just as they will never strike Putin.

This means absolutely nothing. Hypersonic weapons are not the game changer everyone thinks they are. They are just new toys for the elites to get people excited about.

They will never be used against anyone except civilians and retarded enlistees just as the weapons are already used for.

The elites like Putin and Biden will never use these weapons against each other no more than they will use nukes against each other.

All of these weapons are to keep you under control or kill you if needed. These elites are not against each other, they are against us.

You mean AMERICA always bombs WEAKER countries than itself -900 US bases worldwide -never ending wars -don’t target Russia as the same as the USA that’s VOA/Atlantic Council thinking.

IMHO

Yes and Russia is the same. That is why we will never see a real war between Russia and America. At most it will be a depopulation war where Putin and Biden sit safely while civilians and stupid enlistees get slaughtered.

I don’t see Russia bombing their “real enemy”. I haven’tseen Russia bombing anything but weaker countries too.

Putin attacks all his real enemies in Donezk, but he will never attack his Friends in Washington, London and Paris, because they pay him for all his actions against Russia 🤮🤮🤮

If russia can shoot down their own in testing,they can also shoot down anything else,usa cant and shant achieve hypersonic status,they would need trillions to try in vain to suceed see usa wasted trillions on useless programs where as russia certainly didn’t hypersonics are the most expensive to succeed see! Don’t let the nocando msm poof suggest these can be had for millions,they cant,but sure russia can manufacture them in the droves,because they did infact invested trillions without msm gibberish crap!

It’s time to admit that the U.S. has fallen behind. No need to be in denial. This is what happens when you invest more time, effort, research and development on LGBTQ androgynous body armor instead of focusing on real military advancements. And just wait until the F35s are used in a dog fight against a Russian fighter jet. Those fat overpriced American hamburgers with wings are going to heat up and the engine will blow in mid air. 1.5 trillion dollars spent on the F35 fighter jet program, typical American squandering of tax payer dollars.
