    A "top" Chinese  scientist who has worked on their Hypersonic program has fled to the West earlier this month (apparently to the UK). So the west might finally be able to develop Hypersonic weapons.

    There are several inconsistencies on this news report which make it seem to be fake. You would also be better off linking to the actual news source.
    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1554695/China-rocket-scientist-defects-West-MI6-global-tensions

    i.e. not the best news source either.

    Is this sarcasm? Suspect

    I guess they invented "inertial dampeners" Star Trek style to prevent occupants turning into strawberry jam when performing these "instant full stops"... Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    MDA's upcoming Missile Defense system will be based on a modular payload concept

    Atlantacist twaddle at its finest...

    Don't want to gloat ( Laughing ) but this garbage is nothing new. Frag warheads to kill hypersonic vehicles? Kill vehicles with "agility" to counter hypersonic maneuvering targets? Kill vehicles with directed energy weapons? Pathetic...

    On the positive side, I can sense palpable panic on the part of the Atlantacist enemy. Hypersonics will be game-changing and they are way behind the curve Twisted Evil

    NATzO infantilist drivel. First they screech that Russia stole their wunderwaffen which they don't even have. Now they screech that
    they have magic technology to defeat any hypersonic system made by Russia. The question needs to be asked: if you don't
    have the former, when did you get the latter? Clearly no brain power behind their drivel.

    Russia will be the first to have an anti-hypersonic defense. They were already testing the S 500 against hypersonic targets. The development in Russia of missile and anti-missile systems have accelerated so much that it will be hard for anyone to catch up with them

    In an age of multifunction, they want separate modules...

    That will be cheaper... NOT.

    Atlantacist twaddle at its finest...

    Actually I agree... these designs are going to cost the west (the bad guys) an enormous fortune at a time they can't even stop cruise missiles they think some single system will keep them safe from hypersonic manouvering threats?

    The bad guys are going to pay through the nose for hair brained ideas... making it modular means you have to buy their entire range of hairbrained ideas... most of which wont work for the first 100 blocks... they will just be place holders... while you make that company rich...

    In comparison Russia does have an IADS network and its has hypersonic manouvering targets designed to penetrate defended air space... the first one was Iskander of course, but they had plenty of supersonic low flying cruise missiles that tried something similar to defeat air defences by flying low and working together as a swarm...

    Now they have Zircon and operational scramjet engines their interceptors can now have scramjet motors too and conceivably chase down western hypersonic weapons...

    Stealth aircraft has also been called garbage by the Russia strong crowd that is until itself didn't develop one.

    Never mind, keep on clowning.

    Not true. We were clowning about the claims that "Stealth" makes planes invisible for radar and that planes like F-35 can fly over S-400 systems and drop bombs onto it because the radars can´t see them.

    The Americans thought stealth was the solution... ignoring that the problem is complex and any solution has strengths and weaknesses, so applying multiple solutions is always best.

    The western term is putting all your eggs in one basket, which is what the US is seriously guilty of.

    Russia recognised that stealth is a good idea but only in specific situations and against specific threats.

    The US went for extreme stealth which made it hard to achieve and very very expensive, while the Russians went for enough stealth to make their new aircraft difficult to deal with but still affordable and capable enough to be a real problem.
