America has lagged behind China and Russia in terms of hypersonic missiles and now the Pentagon is working very fast to achieve this supersonic technology. The US has made this announcement at a time when it is being said that Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning a new test of Satan-2 missiles with the ability to destroy the earth with a nuclear bomb. Not only this, Russia has already claimed to have deployed hypersonic missiles on a large scale.
Preparations to be deployed on America’s deadliest warship
In response to this preparation of Russia, both the US Navy and Army are now engaged in making the hypersonic missile necessary for future war. It is named Common Hypersonic Glide Body. This missile runs at a speed of more than Mach 5 and its speed can be up to Mach 17. This missile will be able to change its path in the middle and can penetrate any defense system. This missile will move towards its target at a speed of about 5 km per second and destroy it.
This American hypersonic missile will be capable of hitting targets accurately from a distance of only 6 inches. This warhead will destroy the target only on the strength of its speed. After the missile attack, its effect will be very dire. The US Army is planning to test its missile, which will have a strike range of at least 2800 km. It will be launched from a ground based mobile launcher. It is planned to be in service by next year. At the same time, the US Navy is developing separate hypersonic missiles for its warships and submarines. Work is underway to deploy this missile on America’s deadliest warship USS Zumwalt. Analysts say that this warship capable of dodging the radar will prove to be a great warning to the enemy.
