Hyper USA.

This is coolbert:

Vlad has hypersonic weaponry and boasts of same. Don has them too!

U.S. Army! U.S. Air Force! U.S. Navy? They all got them? AHW. ARRW. HCSW.

From a variety of sources to include the Russia media outlet Russian Times [RT]:

1. "Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW)"

"The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW) is a demonstrative long-range glide vehicle capable of flying within the planet’s atmosphere at hypersonic speed."

"The technology was developed through the cooperative effort of the US Department of Defence to evaluate a conventional prompt global strike (CPGS) capability for striking time-sensitive high-value targets."

Click on image to see an enlarged view. Ground/sea/air launch possible. That conventional bomb as described hardly conventional. Hundreds [?] or thousands [?] or tungsten rods descending almost vertically over target at extreme velocity each rod having twelve times [12x] the energy of a fifty caliber [.50] round. Everything within a square mile [two and one-half square kilometers] of ground zero obliterated that devastation more or less equal to the amount of damage from the detonation of a tactical nuclear munition.

2. "US orders $480mn-hypersonic missile prototype suitable for ‘great power competition’"


"The US Air Force paid $480 million for a second top-spec hypersonic missile prototype to gain ground . . . following reports of Russia’s successes in developing unrivaled high-speed weapons."

"The Air Force awarded a $480-million contract to Lockheed Martin, tasking the company with designing a second hypersonic missile prototype, referred to as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW)."

Global reach using these hypersonic delivery systems a warhead allowing American military planners a non-nuclear option during a time of crisis. Not a bad idea. Land, sea, air!
