Has there been any confirmation by the Chinese Govt.? Iraq had WMDs , a full fledged war was fought and Iraq was left to ruins. No WMD were there. I am just saying when did tweets became official confirmation. Mis-information is the latest weapon. i think US trying to create another monster after all Biden would never like to be remembered for Afghanistan fiasco. (Just my two cents)

It missed its target by over 20 miles. We already knew China had the capability to nuke the US. So it didn’t really change the game.

Meanwhile the US has already demonstrated the capability to launch an ICBM ranged conventional HGV at Mach 17 and hit within 6in of its target.

China also had to launch this on a Long March rocket. Talk about unaffordable and impractical.

X-37 is a winged spaceplane for deployment of payload into orbit or do multirole missions. It is not comparable to HGV which uses shorter orbit and only exits atmosphere for a brief time. The purpose is to better avoid detection or make use of orbit away from mid course interception missiles.

Totally totally different lol.

This is from before 2012. And now there are vertical take off ones. Even vertical take off and horizontal landing various types of spaceplane.

Anyway X-37 is NOT a hypersonic glide vehicle. Within the atmosphere, X-37 is a simple glider like the space shuttle. Their purposes are entirely different it is like saying the USA has super advanced light bulbs in X-37 while China tested a laser, FOBS style HGV. They are totally different things like a kite is different to a paper aeroplane. The Chinese test re-enters atmosphere after using suitable orbit for a short time and then glides for tens of thousands of kilometers using shockwaves riding.

"Patrick Chase" from youtube (lol) should also use better example, satellites in certain orbits are also hypersonic relative velocity objects that can go back into atmosphere. USA had satellites since 1960s so USA also had hypersonic FOBS since 60 years ago. Sort of.

Its a really really bad first strike weapon. The US maintains a network of infrared observing satellites that will detect and track the launch from early on. It will also have to pass dedicated space surveillance radars such as the one in Exmouth Australia, pass over countries such as India that will track its launch and have a reasonable chance of passing over numerous ships with the capacity to track objects at high altitude.

Launching one would put the US on alert. There is zero chance of a large scale series of launches that could constitute a first strike going un-noticed.

The days of a FOBS being able to be used as a first strike were the 60s when the theory was the US lacked the radar coverage outside of its norther borders to observe these kind of attacks. They would launch bombs that would detonate very high and create EMPs to allow the follow on attack.

But by the 70s the spreading network of radars and satellites plus the hardening of equipment to EMP made this pointless and the Soviets ditched the plan.

I suspect this is either a technological dead end, or something else such as a space plane being mis-reported.

Its just such a bad idea.

It’s an experiment that’s unaffordable and impractical. And it doesn’t change the MAD calculus.

And the US has already developed an ICBM ranged HGV at Mach 17 that struck its target within 6in.

It's a regret more and more Americans behave like Indian clowns laughing stock

Americans and Indians are cousins.
