C.According to a media report, hina has made great strides in developing hypersonic missiles. As the Financial Times reported Saturday, citing informed circles, China tested a new high-speed sliding body in August. According to this, China sent the nuclear missile into space with a missile of the “Long March” type, where it circled the earth in a low orbit before heading towards its target.
According to three different sources, the bullet missed its target by more than 30 kilometers, according to the newspaper. According to the report, US intelligence agencies were surprised by China̵7;s new military capabilities.
“Our biggest challenge”
Defense Department spokesman John Kirby declined to comment on the details of the report. However, he said: “We have expressed concern about China’s military capabilities, which only increase tensions in the region and beyond.” This is one of the reasons “why we see China as our biggest challenge”.
In addition to China, the United States, Russia, North Korea and at least four other countries are also working on hypersonic technology. Like ballistic missiles, these can carry nuclear weapons and can travel at more than five times the speed of sound. However, as ballistic missiles fly in a high arc through space, hypersonic missiles remain in low orbit. They are also remotely controlled, which makes shooting much more difficult.
