Russia?s new Hypersonic weapon could be unstoppable.

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Their claim of 20 times the speed of sound plus very maneuver does not sound very feasible. The forces at those speeds on fins are extremely high even while traveling straight. Even using vector jets, you still need fins.

That is true Jim, I was thinking the same Thing as per speed and maneuverability. If there claims are true, there must be some type of technology that permits the missile to slow down considerably in the midst of flight which will allow it to make the turns, then the speed is turned up once again?

meanwhile, the US Army is busy adapting the Navy's ship-mounted laser system to be mounted on trucks.  Speed of light is faster than hypersonic.  And these new lasers are operational, folks.
Winter is coming.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.
