    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.

    i.e. not the best news source either.

    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...

    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.

    Yawn... Murkan BS. Any "hypersonic" missile system that utilises rocket engines rather than air-breathing engines is old technology and is nothing special. The US is, AFAIK, nowhere near to testing a practical scramjet for use with tactical missile systems. Wake me up when they are....

    A rocket powered hypersonic weapon would include most big heavy SAMs of the 70s and 80s...

    Not to mention ICBMs and SLBMs and or course IRBMs which have not been a thing for a while for the Soviets/Russia and the west because the INF treaty previously banned them.

    I understand it so perfectly. The Kinzhal, is also advertised as a hypersonic weapon and is an ordinary rocket missile like Iskander.

    The kinzhal is actively used , and is not vaporware

    These vaporware systems still need to be tested on platforms, like VMF did with zircon on frigates, and with Kinzhal on Mig31

    They're still far from employing them on their ships and planes

    By then the interception of these targets would be mastered in form of s500

    When you have a quality lead over competitors like USA, it allows to develop both the offensive and defensive means, before the enemy can even get their first system in service

    Did the pindos lose the plans for the pershing 2? Because it seems that is all they want from their new "hypersonic" weapons program.

    Didn't know Turkey was developing hypersonic missiles. News suggest they are testing an air to surface hypersonic missile.

    I understand it so perfectly. The Kinzhal, is also advertised as a hypersonic weapon and is an ordinary rocket missile like Iskander.

    The Kinzhal and in its ground launched version, the Iskander, certainly are conventional rocket powered missiles, but unlike western equivalents like Honest John II etc, the Iskander is powered all the way to its target and has thrust vectoring rocket propulsion and sensors on board that detect interceptors that allows the missile to fly to a target like an aircraft unlike an artillery shell.

    A normal ballistic weapon has a predictable path because it is launched accelerates to top speed and then glides most of the way towards the target... it does not manouver because manouvering bleeds away speed and makes it easier to shoot down... lots of heavy manouvering and it might not reach its target... plus it is generally a warhead and perhaps a terminal guidance system that detects the missiles position via GPS or INS or both and hits a coordinate or it has a radar or camera to find a target and manouver to hit it in the last phase of flight.

    The Iskander and Kinzhal are not like that... their rocket motor burns all the way to the target area and they don't follow a ballistic glide path, they fly to the target like an aircraft, and they are fitted with sensors and jammers and decoys so if it detects a Patriot air defence system it will manouver to keep its distance while approaching its target... if the Patriot system is the target then it will use jammers and releasable decoys and also manouver to make if very difficult for the patriot battery to hit it... in other words it does not just manouver to hit the target properly, it actively tries to avoid approaching threats that it detects with onboard sensors...

    That is what makes it different to previous weapons.

    Their large Anti ship missiles have had the same capacity for decades, in addition to their pack attack or swarm attack ability for hard targets like large ships that need to be hit multiple times to ensure they sink.

    Their Zircon missile just makes it all easier because four fifths of the bulk of the fuel and air a rocket carries can be removed and scooped up on the way to the target by the scramjet powered missile, and in fact it can be throttled up or down as required to conserve fuel or add energy for manouvering too.

    Even in the 1990s Germany and France were working on a new missile design that used combined rocket ramjet propulsion... it was to be a tactical missile for fighters to carry... about 800kg in weight, mach 2 flight speed and 90km range... it was called ANS or something... and they couldn't decide so it didn't go anywhere...

    Sound familiar?

    The Kh-31 of the 1980s was a 600kg mach 3 missile with a 120km flight range for tactical aircraft for anti radiation use and for anti ship use... latest models have double that range, and they are working on scramjet powered models with three times higher speed and presumably double or triple the range.

    Iskander is not a hypersonic ballistic missile. But its air launched version, Kinzhal is hypersonic. How is that possible?

    I am not even sure what and with whom are you discussing.
    Muricans are backward in the rocketry beyond any comprehension, considering the insane money laundering they are carrying there in the entire MIC for generations.
    For a given moment, they are lagging behind not only to the Russkie - which was obvious for some 50 years or so, but Chinese as well.
    And that is only the beginning Laughing
    They are lagging behind Koreans.
    They are lagging behind Iranians.
    They are lagging behind Indians ( Wink )
    And the only solution they are capable to apply is more Marvel superheroes for mass recognition Laughing
    Entire areas as deep as 3-4k km ashore are closed for them in a case of serious struggle. Each carrier battle group will survive as long as a barrage of missiles unleashed 2000 km away will need to close in.
    There is nothing to discuss. Seriously.

    Iskander is not a hypersonic ballistic missile. But its air launched version, Kinzhal is hypersonic. How is that possible?

    Both are hypersonic, but neither are ballistic... ballistic means accelerated to a speed and then continue the majority of the flight on a ballistic trajectory unpowered... like an artillery shell without base bleed or rocket assistance.

    Both accelerate under rocket power and then fly under rocket power all the way to the target... like a jet powered cruise missile... which is why cruise missiles are not called ballistic missiles.

    Iskander flies at mach 6-7, which is hypersonic... the Kinzhal flys at mach 9+... anything faster than about mach 5 is considered hypersonic.

    Before Scramjets worked the only way to fly that fast was with rocket propulsion.

    Now you can use rocket or scramjet if you have the technology.
