The US military received the first hypersonic missile systems




The first hypersonic complexes Long Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) Dark Eagle were placed at the disposal of American gunners. According to the bmpd blog, the US Department of Defense published pictures of the transfer of complexes, which took place in September.

The gunners of the unit of the 17th Field Artillery Brigade of the US Army received training samples and an experimental battery of the LRHW Dark Eagle hypersonic complex. The images show mass-dimensional models of LSHW transport and launch containers, semi-trailer launchers, and Oshkosh HEMTT A4 M983A4 Patriot tractors.


Judging by the photos, two launchers of the first battery of the LRHW complex were handed over to the military. Each installation accommodates two transport and launches containers of hypersonic missiles. WWW is based on the Common-Hypersonic Glider Body (CHGB) guided hypersonic warhead, which is mounted on an AUR (All-up-Round) ballistic missile. The declared range of the missile is 2,775 kilometers.


The description of the pictures indicates that the transfer of the elements of the complex took place in September, and the official ceremony will take place on October 7 at the Lewis-McCord base in Washington State.


Earlier, Popular Mechanics reported that the LRHW rocket was named Dark Eagle. The author noted that the US Navy can get its own version of the complex for basing on submarines and surface ships.
