      You say this like it isn’t true when in reality it’s how things truly are. When america does an advanced project like this they make sure they can actually afford to make them and make them to acceptable specs.
      When turdies and chinks make a vehicle they’ll spend half their development budget on embezzling, a third on marketing and the rest on making 3 or 4 of them to use in parades for 10-20 years before repeating the cycle.

            Which is the difference between the US and China. We can freely admit we completely fricked up and do an about course. They cant, because there is a deep fragility with China and despite "saving face" not historically being a Chinese thing they have made it a Chinese thing.

              People who know the least always talk the loudest. If you had spent 30 seconds on google you would know that the issue with the ammo arose because they went from building a couple dozen to three so the ammo order went from tens of thousands to thousands. economies of scale came into play and the price per round sky rocketed.

              Had they completed the full Zum project and built all the hulls they intended then ppr would not have been an issue.

            It's not so much that hypersonics aren't a wunderwaffe, it's just it's a very expensive and unstoppable weapon with a single legit purpose - killing extremely high value targets. Now the only such targets in existence are carriers.

            The reason why the US didn't have operational hypersonics is because the only legit targets it could've used them against would've been its own carrier fleet, which would've been an incredible self own - demonstrating your supremacy through your unique capabilities, and simultaneously proving those wunderwaffe of yours are very very killable.

            The same thing happened with air defenses and anti stealth radars - until legitimate targets popped up, and the enemies had the capability, it made no sense for the US to field its own.

            The same thing is going on with drones.

          This guy.

          China has endemic corruption.
          >how do you know
          I worked in a startup a while ago. We were looking to open production in China. During the negotiations the factory owner was telling us about overheads and produced some accounting. He had a line items for bribes. A bribe for the fire department for a safety certificate. A bribe for the city to get a certificate for food preparation in the cafeteria. A bribe for the city to get occupancy permits. And this dude wasnt some provincial dweeb in Anhui. This was just outside Shanghai, Chinas prestige city.

          Oh, and then we had to get a guy who is like our bribe man to get all our shit done with the government. I cant remember what the name was but there is a Chinese word for what he does. He's basically a dude who is friends with all the different government beurocrats and the cities elite. So, if you need permits or you want your kid to get in a good school you call him and he goes and sets it all up for you and the cost is the x (the bribe) plus 15% or whatever. And that's all he does all day. Of all the people I met in China our bribe-man was my favorite. He was such a G, saved us from getting into a bad deal with a factory owner and introduced us to some investors (for free), all he wanted in return was that we direct people to him.

          China's corruption is cultural, if you can lie and cheat to get ahead you do it. This is why anti corruption crackdowns is just a more tasteful way of saying purges. If everyone is corrupt its a blank check to be cashed when convenient.

      It is kind of a marketing ploy at the moment. The DF-21 is just a Pershing with a body kit, and those were retired for being obsolescent in what, 1980?
      Shit, the AIM-54 Phoenix was hypersonic if released in the upper 20% or so of the F-14's performance envelope. So a 1960s design and 1970 production AC could (and occasionally did) carry 6 'hypersonic missiles'. It's not really a new or revolutionary thing.

      somewhat.

      they're viable for stationary targets and targets that are likely to move within short notice (VIPs).
      as anti-ship weapons they're currently a meme though since it's cheaper and easier to just build lots of cruise missiles and that's not going to change any time soon.

      Based 100+ IQ posters. They are always marketed as Carrier Killers which is about the worst possible target for a hypersonic and is going to have close to 0 pK even in frick-hueg volleys. Anderson is going to have a bad day though.

      It seems the US is putting a lot more black-budget effort into straight up hypersonic aircraft, which is a lot better use of the technology. It forces IADS to use the expensive part of the kill-chain (the SAM) en masse with very low pK to attempt an engagement, as opposed to stealth with tries to defeat the basically free part of the IADS kill chain, the radiation itself. That math doesn't really work for hypersonic missiles, since you have a very good idea of where they are trying to get to and what path they will take to do it. Not so much with a notional SR-72 etc.

    Yes. It's not the fact that the missile is hypersonic that is actually important, it's that it navigates fast, low, and unpredictably within the atmosphere. Ballistic missiles are easy (relatively speaking) to detect and intercept. Thus "hypersonic" is just a buzz word, unless the missile also flies low, is inter-continental and also can evade threats.

      Its also kind of moot because a mass hypersonic launch is probably going to be assumed to be a nuclear strike so your chances of nuclear retaliation happening in error are extremely high.

    Yes. US built the Sprint missile as an anti-ballistic missile weapon in the 70s. It accelerated at 100g and could achieve Mach 10. The US has had the ability to make unthinkable fast weapons systems for over 50 years, but we only spend money on systems that have an at least theoretically meaningful use case.

    If we really needed hypersonics, we'd have them. That tech is all in the archives. Lockheed could shit out an air-launched Sprint-like missile which could be deployed from a B1 or something faster than Russoids can mutter 'two more weeks'.

    Boost gliders are just a flight path evolution of a MARV. They trade raw speed for unpredictability and difficult to hit trajectories. Gliding the way that they do and doing terminal maneuvers bleeds too much energy and because they sit so much lower in the atmosphere where air is thicker they aren't the Mach 12 silver bullets they get made out to be. The glide phase interceptor program just wants to hit them before they start doing terminal maneuvers because it's easier, that requires a lot more range than what current standard missiles have and doesn't mean there's a capability gap in actually hitting them. Boost gliders are an attempt to make yourself harder to see and engage at an optimal time or position, in exchange for a slower overall weapon during the terminal phase. Things like LRHW that are claimed to go Mach 17 probably really do in portions of their flight but during the terminal phase are significantly slower. There's advantages in being a rapid reaction weapon for high value shit, and they make air defense work harder but these are still very much salvo weapons.

    Now Scramjets are definitely more threatening and have implications beyond just missile technology that stem into aircraft. At the end up the day there's always counters and evolutions for everything and spam is still king.
