        Boost-glide, it's why I say they're a copout. Need a huge booster to get the job done because you're constantly bleeding energy when going terminal

          If it ain't airbreathing, it doesn't count (please note: Russian and Chinese hypersonics don't count)

            >airbreathing
            I don't know much of anything about this but how tf do you expect to ram enough air into the engine to sustain hypersonic combustion while simultaneously not creating too much drag?

              inlet duct geometry, I guess. NACA had this stuff figured out for sub-/trans-/super-sonic back in the '40s thru '60s, but I don't know what the state of the art is for hypersonic inlets

              But seriously, we did get hypersonic scramjets to work in 2010 with the Waverider

                Sustained Mach 5 for record time, which is by definition hypersonic

                the maximum speed was 3300 so it was supersonic

        These aren't AShMs, theyr're made for high priority and time sensitive targets, I.e. soemone withlots of bird shit on their hat has been identified at a command post and its time to take them and the ComPo out.
        The AShM role is filled by JASSM (or the navy equivalent if I mixed it up) becasue its more cost effective, with greater likelihood of positive effect and JASSM can be fired from most aricraft, ships or even a cargo plane with rapid dragon.
        Most Hypersonic missiles will pretty much require the B-52 wich makes them not viable for general war purposes

    Pretty sure it's just on Locksneed's budget rn, not cancelled. I personally prefer the airbreathing options anyways. Rocket propelled is a copout

    The yellow band doesn't convince me that it's a live missile, but the fact that its weld job is worse than the b52 it's mounted on does.

        it did, but it failed too (OPs pictures not necessarily related to the Test described below)

        wasnt this the forth failed test that happened in early 2023?

        probably, but their might be approx 2 more coming

      >We have AMG-28 Hound Dog at home.

      Is that tiny little pointy thing in the front the real missile? How much does it weigh? I mean, its so small it has to be nuclear only, right?

        The whole white pointy thing. He's a big fella!

        Nuclear warhead. Used to flatten SAM emplacments and air bases on the run into Moscow.

            Yep. He's a lil fella. Gather it's supposed to have a conventional warhead of some sort, but mostly effective for the KE.

            A small nuke would fit on there, but that would require some policy changes up stream.

              The last 203 mm nukes were 20 kilotons, one of these would certainly fit. But the whole thing cannot be more than 100-120 kilograms. This thing is like a hypersonic SDB glide bomb.

    They were able to sustain mach 5.1 in one test. Even if barely hypersonic that's still a great accomplishment.

      A test facility. For testing. Not in service. You do this every time US "hypersonics" are discussed. Please stop.
