Development of ultra high-speed alternative to the U.S. nuclear missile can hit the world within one hour
American X-51″ Yu-waves are “supersonic cruise missile Imaginative
British” Sunday Times “reported on April 25, the U.S. military has gained a new generation of President Obama Ultra-fast weapons support to combat within an hour corner of the globe.
per hour, more than 5700 kilometers
White House officials confirmed last week, won the Nobel Peace Prize last year, Obama is considering the deployment of new supersonic missile This missile can be more than 5700 km per hour speed hit, almost as a “Tomahawk” cruise missiles to 7 times faster. It can transmit high-speed flight, very heavy conventional warheads, hit targets accurately, resulting in the power of nuclear warheads, but the destructive power confined to the target area.
this new type of weapon can be fired from the air, land and sea can also be launched from an altitude of about 106 km. According to data received from the satellite, the missile will be five times the speed of sound toward the target. At the last minute, it will transform himself into many deadly shrapnel, or directly charged into the target internal, its deep-fried, very severely.
allocated nearly $ 250 million R & D
former U.S. President George W. Bush was an advocate of this technology, ready to use such weapons instead of nuclear warheads on submarines, but When faced with Russian leaders, he said, which will increase the danger of nuclear war, because Russia is difficult to know the flying missile carrying a nuclear warhead or a conventional warhead. Bush and his aides that Russia quite reasonable. The result of this new weapon in the term of the Bush administration has not made any progress, but the Obama administration plans to develop such weapons readily accepted.
U.S. Air Force for “rapid global strike” program, said Hilton general, the current U.S. with conventional weapons to combat the global goal will require 96 hours to 4 hours, faster if you need to use nuclear weapons if needed.
White House has asked Congress to grant nearly $ 250 million next year for further development of hypersonic technology. The Pentagon has also begun testing possible in the “rapid global strike” program used in missile systems.
Russia greatly alert
Obama this “rapid global strike” plan to make Russia a soft spot for much vigilance. Earlier this month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that if a country side of the reductions in nuclear weapons research and development of new alternative side arms, countries categorically unacceptable.
U.S. analysts also warned that Russia may mistake the United States launched supersonic missile as a nuclear attack.
order to avoid misunderstanding between China and Russia, the United States launched a nuclear bomb, new conventional weapons, Russia may want to allow inspection, and deployment of nuclear missiles in a place far away from the initial concept is deployed in the West Bank Fan Vandenberg Air Force Base.
order to ease Russia, U.S. officials said the number of new small weapons, and far from the U.S. nuclear launch site in order to avoid false positives, triggering a nuclear war. The United States and Russia signed a nuclear disarmament agreement also provides that every deployment of a Washington “rapid global strike” weapons, we must reduce the nuclear bomb.
