US Gen. Says China’s Done ‘Hundreds’ of Hypersonic Weapon Tests While DoD is ‘Bureaucratic’ – Report
The development of hypersonic weapons, according to Hyten, exemplifies the vast differences between the US and China’s approaches. In the last five years, he reportedly claimed, the US has conducted nine hypersonic tests, whereas the
“Chinese have done hundreds.”
“Single digits versus hundreds is not a good place,” Hyten noted. “Now it doesn’t mean that we’re not moving fast in the development process of hypersonics, what it does tell you is that our approach to development is fundamentally different.”
