What is remarkable about Hypersonic missiles.. that is sustained from start to end
hypersonic missiles ,something Ballistic nukes don't do... Is that according to one
American General.. they will only show up in radars in the first phase ,when accelerating
but not when they are at full speeds... Imagine that for a second.. a missile that completely
disappear from radars for being too fast?
Now im not making things up..
this is exactly what one American pentagon general told...
and this was not the way i understood the hypersonic challenge..
i used to believe ,it was only a challenge to intercept it ,if it does many
abrupt movements ... but he was speaking about a missile that completely
become invisible in radars.. for its speeds..
So either that Pentagon General was misinformed..
or US military ,US navy is completely doomed and don't have technology
to either detect the missiles (with their modern radars) and even less
to intercept them.
Or maybe he exagerated the danger to get more funds for Navy?
but he did told that.. that they will not be seen on their radars once flying hypersonic phase..
Maybe he was speaking about their warships radars limitations ,and ground radars or other
technology in land could at least detect hypersonic missiles.. perhaps Infrared sensors could see them at close range.. either way.. that took me by surprise.. because if what he says is true.. then US navy will be completely slaughtered in a fight vs a squadron of Mig-31 armed with Kinzhal missiles (or Su-57 armed with mini short range hypersonics missiles). and without casualties for the Russian airforce..
if true what he told ,the US navy will be shooting gallery , target practice for Russian
airforce and if done with stealth planes and fire hypersonic from long distance ,they might not even know they under attack until they see their warships in flames sinking. This is very serious disadvantage for US navy if they can't see hypersonic missiles ,because not even will know they are under attack..so no electronic warfare will be used either to hide their warships a bit.. in fact if the attack use nukes.. or the conventional missile destroy the chain of command in charge of the warship they might not even have a chance to inform they were attacked.. and just dissapear the warships from US satellites network..if they have real time monitoring of every warship movements..
