Japan began the development of hypersonic weapons

Unfortunately, the achievements of science help not only to create new things that improve life, but also used for military developments. For example recently in the race to develop hypersonic weapons had entered Japan.

Recall that hypersonic weapons — it is primarily a cruise missile, which in addition to the very high speed are quite maneuverable. One of the most famous developments in this field is the American X-51A Waverider, capable of speeds up to Mach 6-7 and domestic system «Zircon».

As for the Japanese projects, the development of weapons will be carried out in the framework of the project Hyper Velocity Projectile Gliding (HVGP). At the moment it is known that the first samples of weapons should have a speed around 5.5-6 swings throughout the greater part of the time required for approaching the target. In addition to cruise missiles, the project will be taken on Board aircraft and missile defense system against hypersonic missiles of a potential enemy, and has all the necessary infrastructure.
