[Global Network Military Dec. 19] Russian Satellite News Agency reported on Dec. 18 that the report of the US Government Accountability Bureau showed that the United States did not have enough anti-missile forces to effectively defend Russian and Chinese hypersonic weapons.
China and Russia are focusing on hypersonic weapons because their speed, altitude and mobility can destroy most anti-missile systems, the report said. The weapon can also be used to improve long-range conventional and nuclear weapons performance. There is no confrontation yet.
On March 1, in his State of the Union address, Russian President Vladimir Putin referred to new weapons developed by Russia, including weapons to restrain the US anti-missile system. The President referred to the development of a pioneer system for hypersonic weapons that can fly over intercontinental distances at speeds exceeding Mach 20 in dense atmospheres.
