The More advanced weapons from Russia They are not doing a good job in the conflict with Ukraine. This was stated by the General of the US Air Force Glenn Vanherk in the US Senate. Hypersonic missiles will be disappointing in terms of accuracy, with performance certainly below the standards announced by the Kremlin even during the D-Day parade.
Because hypersonic missiles “disappointing” the United States
at least 1500 Russian missilesSince February 24, they have targeted civilian targets. This is the largest use of missiles since then a second war Globalism. That is why it is necessary for American defense experts to equip Kyiv with an offensive and defensive system capable of preventing bombing and responding to Moscow.
The fact that Vladimir Putin’s high-tech hypersonic missiles hit civilian and non-military targets is evidence for the United States that they will not be as accurate as Western targets. They will actually be directed towards Objectives armyand failure to destroy them.
This is despite the statements of the Russian Deputy Prime Minister yuri Borisovwho stated that “There is nothing in the world Like the Kinzhal missiles, which fly at a speed of more than 10 times the speed of sound, and at the same time they can be controlled at any moment of their course. Moreover, it is impossible to intercept them.”
What are hypersonic missiles and what does it change from conventional missiles
Hypersonic missiles are considered one of the most important military innovations of recent decades, which led to the launch of one of them A new arms race by the great powers. They entered the arsenal States unitedAnd ChinaAnd Russia And North Koreawhile you love other countries FranceAnd kingdom united And India They are working on their development.
unlike cruise missilesmaneuverability, accurate but not too strong, the gods ballistic missilesHypersonic missiles, destructive, fast but difficult to control, guarantee great accuracy and firepower. That is why the news of its use in war in ukraine.

Because we are talking about “hypersonic” missiles: it depends on their speed
A hypersonic missile can be called a hypersonic missile if it reaches at least its speed 5 times the volumei.e. at least Mach 5 – Mach 1 precisely corresponds to the speed of sound – and therefore it travels at a speed of about 1.6 kilometers per second. The latest generation of hypersonic missiles actually reach Mach 20.
Kinzal missiles used by Russia in Ukraine launched by Military planes in flight And come with one special motor Which leads them to supersonic speeds. It is not clear why the Kremlin chose this type of weapon, given that Kyiv’s defenses are not particularly advanced and have already failed against conventional missiles.
However, their use highlights that the Russian arsenal may not have been as advanced as Vladimir Putin would like us to believe, confirming Russia’s weakness Despite the propaganda of Moscow.
