Earlier this year, the Russian military said it ran a successful test of a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile capable of sneaking through enemy defenses.

US AIR FORCE: WE'RE IN ‘DANGER’ OF FALLING BEHIND CHINA AND RUSSIA BY 2025 

A video posted by the Defense Ministry Sunday showed a MiG-31 fighter jet launching a Kinzhal (Dagger) missile during a training flight. The ministry said the missile, which carried a conventional warhead, hit a practice target at a firing range in southern Russia

HIGH-TECH LASER WEAPONS

In April, the Pentagon announced a deal with Lockheed Martin to develop a “hypersonic conventional strike weapon” for the U.S. Air Force. The deal for the air-launched Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW) is worth up to $928 million.



Four months later, the Air Force awarded 
Lockheed Martin a contract of up to $480 million 
to design a second hypersonic prototype, the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW).

“The ARRW and HCSW efforts are developing unique capabilities for the warfighter and each has different 
technical approaches,” explained the Air Force, in a  statement. “The ARRW effort is ‘pushing the art-of-the-possible’ by leveraging the technical base established 
by the Air Force/DARPA partnership. 
The HCSW effort is using mature technologies 
that have not been integrated for an 
air-launched delivery system.”

In its response to the GAO, 
the Department of Defense described 
the report as "an accurate although sobering 
macro picture of how the US stands in the 
world against emerging threats."





WAKE UP AMERICA
