Baijiahao: Russia's main advantage over the US is hypersonic missiles

The West will not be able to put up with Russia as long as it has modern weapons. This conclusion was made by the journalists of the Chinese edition of Baijiahao.

They pointed out that after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, NATO did not cease to exist, even though there was no real enemy. On the contrary, with the end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Alliance increased the number of its members and continued its policy of confrontation with its neighbors.

Europe, spurred on by the United States, has come to regard Russia even more as the main threat to its security. The Americans have successfully instilled fear in European countries of Russian military power.

Experts are sure that the basis of this fear was the large number of nuclear weapons that Moscow inherited from the Soviet period.

“With nuclear warheads alone, the Russian army has more than 5,000 units, which exceeds the number of nuclear warheads in the US military. <…> Russian land-based and sea-based intercontinental missiles alone have as many as 11 types in service, which does not include long-range, medium-range and short-range long-range ballistic missiles, ”the analysts said.

Russia also has hypersonic missiles, which are among the most advanced examples of modern weapons. Moreover, only she was able to use it from land, sea and air, which other countries have not yet achieved.

“The Russian ground-based hypersonic missile is a pioneer missile. This is the most distant and fastest warhead among analogues. Its range of destruction exceeds 10,000 kilometers, and its speed is 33,077 kilometers per hour. This is the only hypersonic missile in the history of mankind with a speed of more than Mach 25, ”experts say.

Observers noted that in the world only Moscow and Washington have systems for early warning of a missile attack. This mechanism plays an important role in ensuring the security of the state and maintaining the defense capability at a high level.

Earlier it became known that the United States is extremely concerned about lagging behind Russia in the space arms race. Journalists from the Chinese edition of Sina noted that Moscow already has the technology to effectively deal with American reconnaissance satellites. The principle of operation of such weapons lies in the laser “blinding” of equipment in orbit.
