Something not right here! Cart before the horse and all that?
Germany now in the space race? Hypersonic missile on order which will confound and counter the Russian threat? Thanks to Sputnik for the article.
"Germany Orders Development of Hypersonic Missile to Counter Certain 'Threats'"
"Sales manager at European missile developer and manufacturer MBDA Peter Heilmeier has revealed in an interview with Die Welt newspaper that the company is currently working on a hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV) for the German military."
As described the HGV to be strictly a "defensive" weapon system. Useful when engaging top-of-the-line Russian armor.
See the previous blog entry the entire concept of hypersonic from the perspective of some fraught with too many difficulties.
See previous blog entry too the entire German military apparatus questionable both from the material and manpower standpoint.
