US Intelligence Sources: Russian Hypersonic Glide Vehicle Avangard Will Be Ready By 2020

Speaking to the US TV channel CNBC, anonymous sources acknowledged of US intelligence reports, said that new Russian “invincible” hypersonic glide vehicle Avangard would be ready by 2020.

According to CNBC sources, Russia tested the Avangard twice in 2016. In October 2017, the third test was allegedly accomplished and supposedly failed as the device crashed down.

On March 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin presented newest military developments of Russia. One was a high-precision hypersonic aero-ballistic missile Kinzhal. Second was a hypersonic glide vehicle Avangard. It can accomplish sharp high-speed maneuvers in flight making it “absolutely invulnerable for any missile defense system.”

The CNBC sources believe that Avangard can defeat even the most advanced US missile-defense systems.

Thomas Karako, the director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told CNBC that “these kinds of boost glide vehicles attack the gaps in our missile defense system.”

He noted that “time is running out” adding it was “unfortunate that we have let Russia come this far.” Karako stressed that the missile-rich threat environment would put US forces at risk.

In March, Commander of the US Strategic Command Air Force General John Hyten stated that Washington hadn’t possess “any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon”

the idiots trying to convince themselves? until yestrday they did not know it existed now they know when the tests was made. I keep wodnering if they can reach any lower level of stupidity and short sight that already been demonstrating.

Not quite true, until yesterday the Yanks denied that the Russians had accomplished the designs, never mind the testing.

velociraptor

HAHAHA! they always knew everything, what happened in the warsaw pact. they fpund russian missiles in cuba, the secret ss-20ies, etc. today are much more effective. you have no idea, how many black(silent) spy satellites has usa around the earth. russia has no chance to onserve the. also the last “affair”, the “unsuccessful” elon musk rocket launch is lie. it was very succesful and there is a new perfect spy machine on orbit.

There are many weapons that can beat tacky US air defences, it’s amazing that it takes something so advanced for them to open their eyes.

Russia’s Killer Mach 20 Avangard Hypersonic Weapon Is About to Enter Production

Russia’s new Avangard hypersonic boost-glide vehicle is about to enter production.

The Russian Defense Ministry has already signed a contract for the weapon to enter into serial production according to Yuri Borisov, Russia’s deputy defense minister. Borisov told the Russian-language newspaper Red Star that the Avangard (or Vanguard in English) is not a “bluff.”

The reality of the capabilities of the letal toys that each country has (even China) will not be known until WWIII initiates. Then the faces of the confident people will be frozen.

You can call me Al

Something like this ?

Another weapon race to activate USA-EU-Russia economies. Sooner or Later something will be out of control (Israel behavior, for example). Then, WWIII will be unavoidable and bye bye humanity.
