    Only Russia will have its hypersonic missile type  (flying within atmosphere) ready by 2020 with production facilities also up and chewing by the same time while the US is stuck with its type.

    Yeah come to think of it, it was USAF that started developing this system first and I remember that all tests were heavily advertised in media and news. They were acting pretty high and mighty about it. And so far none of the tests were fully successful.

    And here you have Russia starting late and successfully completing test run first. thumbsup

    Americans are second rate in materials science. Maybe some think that such a claim is funny but there are legacy effects in terms of
    development. As of 1991 the US did not know that oxygen rich staged combustion rocket engines were physically possible because all their
    tests failed. Soviet researchers managed to come up with superior heat resistant alloys.

    These scramjets are a similar problem. How to get materials that don't get ablated away during operation. Those Russian mud hut dwellers
    that don't make anything according to Obama clearly have an edge over the self-anointed master of human achievement, Uncle Scumbag.

    Of course Uncle Scumbag will eventually succeed. Humans in America can be intelligent in spite of their Hollywood bubble of delusion.

    This latest project picks up where the Albatros hypersonic warhead project of mid-1980s USSR left off. That project was in response to the US missile defence development and President Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars  program.


    This weapon is designed to be installed instead of traditional warheads on long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles. It starts working at a height of about 96km and flies at its target at a speed of 5-7km per second.


    Before entering dense atmospheric layers the projectile executes a complex manoeuvre directly over the target, one that makes it difficult for anti-missile defence systems to intercept it.

    By all estimates Russia has 'completed" the deployment of SS-19 missile regiment (possibly 18 missiles) fitted with 4202 warheads
    at dombarovsky. Pr4202 is a fully deployed /tested weapon at dombarovsky.
    The Testing might have been completed previous year.

    Finally the 4202 is no longer a test vehicle.

    Thats the difference between Russian and American missiles. Russian deploy then and use them in arctic , aleppo , ukraine ..where as American only use them on twitter , CNN, facebook,bbc etc.

    The only thing is that Russia might be using that deployed missiles for its improved testing for improved ,compact warheads.
