Experts believe the test failed, but China has reached out to hypersonic missile technology and even beaten US intelligence in the test.
Listen to the news
In an interview with US Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Mark Millie Bloomberg, he said the Chinese military was “rapidly expanding”. We have seen China test a hypersonic weapon, which is a matter of great concern. It was like the Sputnik moment that caught our attention. This is the first time the U.S. has spoken publicly on China’s hypersonic missile test.
However, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby declined to comment on General Millie’s remarks. This is not a technique unknown to us. Kirby said the US is working on its own security system and hypersonic technology.
Anxiety increased even after the test failed
According to a report in the British newspaper Financial Times, China tested a hypersonic missile in space that orbited the earth and then dropped off a few kilometers from its target. Experts believe the test failed, but China has reached out to hypersonic missile technology and even beaten US intelligence in the test. This raised concerns.
Missile tracking is very difficult
The speed of a hypersonic missile is much higher than that of a ballistic missile carrying a normal nuclear warhead. It is at least 5 times faster than the speed of sound (1235 km / h) or about 6200 km / h. This missile has the quality of cruise and ballistic missiles. That’s why American General Mark Millie considered it an important and worrying event because its tracking is so difficult.
