WORLD HOLDS BREATH! China beats US to form terrifying new hypersonic heat-seeker missile
World holds breath as China beats US to form terrifying new hypersonic heat-seeker missile.
CHINA has beaten the USA in the development of new heat-seeking hypersonic missiles adding further tension to ties between Washington and Beijing as both superpowers appear to be entering into a new cold war scenario.
With both nations developing highly sophisticated weapons as the race continues to dominate the Indo-Pacific region, the move by China appears to be something the US has yet to match. The development of the weapon comes just four months after China denied reports that it has also tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile, claiming the projectile that had circled the entire planet was in fact a spacecraft. The heating-seeking capabilities have been confirmed by researchers from the National University of Defence Technology, which allows a hypersonic missile to search for, identify and lock on to a target based on its heat signature when flying at low altitudes where the air is thicker.
This means the missiles could hone in on targets including moving vehicles on the street with unprecedented accuracy and speed, according to research cited by South China Morning Post.
Boasting about the capability, Professor Yi Shihe wrote in a paper published in the Chinese Air and Space Defence Journal saying China has made “a series of core technology breakthroughs that were proven effective in tests.”
The professor added: “With effective hypersonic precision strike weapons, the critical value of ‘strategic depth’ in traditional warfare will no longer exist."
He ended: "All the critical political, economic and military assets of a country will be at risk.”
The first generation of hypersonic weapons was designed to penetrate missile defence systems and hit fixed targets on the ground at five times the speed of sound or faster.
Although China and Russia had deployed some hypersonic missiles, a popular opinion elsewhere was that these weapons had little practical value unless a country wanted to start a nuclear war.
