Supersonic missiles are weapons capable of maneuvering and flying at speeds exceeding 5,000 km/h. The speed, which is five times more than conventional missiles, allows hypersonic weapons to overcome most of the missile defense systems and to shorten the time frame for a response to the attacked country.
State Enterprise “Design Bureau” Pivdenne” at the international exhibition” Weapons and Security – 2017 ” presented Ukrainian hypersonic rocket. At the moment, hypersonic missiles are being developed in the USA, Russia and China. A number of countries, including Japan, Australia, India and EU members, have also started research in this area.
While the information available on the Ukrainian missile is scarce, but it is already known that its speed is up to 5 maha (6,125 km per hour). In flight, she can maneuver, her sounded range – up to 300 km.
In previous years, the CB “Pivdenne” already represented the missile complex “Korshun” at this exhibition, which can also hit targets at distances of up to 280 kilometers, this distance is related to international restrictions for such weapons in accordance with the commitments taken on yourself Ukraine.
