 The goal is to curb China and Russia! The United States hits billions of dollars to develop future weapons


Global military April 24th reports that The Pentagon has recently thrown out large orders to speed up the development of future weapons such as laser weapons, hypersonic missiles and other weapons in order to maintain the technical advantages of China and Russia in the related fields. US military website 22 said laser weapons are the top priority of the next generation of advanced equipment in the United States. The US Navy and air force have invested heavily in the field to speed up the actual progress of laser weapons in 2020 -2022. Lockheed Martin has received an initial contract for the US Navys $150 million laser weapon system, with a total amount of $943 million if all the additional items are in place. These different kinds of laser weapons can blinding and destroying UAVs and fast near shore attack boats, and they will be equipped in the future on a large ship like a destroyer and even a Sanantonio dock carrier. Carlton Everhat, the commander of the US Air Forces mobile command, said he wanted to start a test on the concept of a laser weapon from the KC-135 tanker this summer. If the progress is smooth, the US Air Force F-15 aircraft can test the laser weapons in 2021, and in 2030, 60 kilowatts of high-power laser weapons will also enter the actual deployment. Hypersonic missiles are another priority development technology in the United States. Australian News Network said 23, Luoma company also recently received a US air force high supersonic conventional strike weapons contract, worth up to 928 million U.S. dollars. Other hypersonic weapons projects also include the tactical advanced gliding plan and hypersonic jet project sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Michael Griffin, Deputy Defense Secretary for research and engineering, said that the development of hypersonic weapons is the highest priority technology of the US military. Many foreign media have noted that the reason why the US Army is developing future weapons is to curb the trend of transcending the advanced weaponry and technology fields of China and Russia. The Military website said Russia has announced its mastery of hypersonic missile technology, and China has also established a conventional rapid strike system for thousands of kilometers of range, and the existing improved sea sparrows and dense air defense systems are unable to effectively intercept these weapons. Michael Griffin acknowledged the house military committee, our opponents have made important progress in future weapons. Now when the United States attaches importance to and put into the related fields, we need to develop the land based conventional rapid strike system and then expand to the seabe and air base flat.
