China experienced a hypersonic missile
The Chinese military conducted the first tests of a hypersonic missile capable of breaking through the American missile defense system. Tests missile, which the US military department designated WU-14, took place 9 January, but the US learned about this a few days later.
The hypersonic part is separated from the ballistic missile at an altitude of about 100 kilometers and flies to the target at a speed 10 times the speed of sound. The superiority of such a rocket is that it can deliver pinpoints at hypersonic speed, at a relatively small height and on a flat trajectory, which makes it much less vulnerable to the US missile defense system.
