China has tested a hypersonic missile with a nuclear charge
China has tested new space capabilities with a hypersonic rocket. This is reported by the Financial Times newspaper with reference to informed sources.
It is reported that in August, China tested a hypersonic missile with a nuclear charge, which circled the globe. According to sources, the Chinese military launched a rocket with a hypersonic gliding aircraft, which flew through low-orbit space and then descended to reach its target.
At the same time, as stated by three sources, the missile did not hit the target, missing by about two dozen miles. According to two other sources, the tests showed that China had made amazing progress in the field of hypersonic weapons and was much more advanced than US officials had assumed.
Earlier, The Washington Post wrote that the Chinese authorities have begun the construction of more than 100 launch shafts for intercontinental ballistic missiles. According to the newspaper, the relevant work is being carried out in the desert in the territory of the Chinese province of Gansu.
Before that, the Pentagon predicted that China's nuclear arsenal would double by 2030.
