Russia Uses New Superweapon In Combat Against Ukraine For First Time In History (With commentary)

Russia has reportedly used hypersonic missiles in combat against Ukraine last week, marking the first known use of the new superweapons in combat by any military.

“US officials confirmed to CNN that Russia launched hypersonic missiles against Ukraine last week, the first known use of such missiles in combat,” CNN reported. “The launches were likely intended to test the weapons and send a message to the West about Russian capabilities.”

Hypersonic missiles travel at five times the speed of sound or faster, have lower trajectories than ballistic missiles, and can maneuver before hitting their intended target, which makes it hard to shoot them down.

Bloomberg News highlighted information about the specific weapon that Russia claims to have used:

The Ministry of Defense said the military used Kinzhal (Dagger) missiles on Friday to target the site storing missiles and aviation ammunition in the village of Delyatyn, outside the city of Ivano-Frankivsk, according to an emailed statement. The claimed strike marked the first use of the nuclear-capable advanced weapons system in the Ukraine war, state news service RIA Novosti said.

The Kinzhal, which can carry conventional or nuclear warheads, flies 10 times faster than the speed of sound, or more than 2 miles per second, President Vladimir Putin said when he announced the system in an annual state-of-the-nation address in 2018.

Hypersonic missiles garnered a lot of attention late last year after China tested hypersonic weapons last July that were more advanced than anything that the U.S. is believed to have in its arsenal.

Gen. David Thompson, vice chief of space operations, admitted late last year that “we’re not as advanced as the Chinese or the Russians in terms of hypersonic programs,” adding that the U.S. has a lot of “catching up to do very quickly” because “the Chinese have had an incredibly aggressive hypersonic program for [the last] several years.”

“While the Pentagon has pushed the development of new hypersonic missiles, the Army isn’t slated to field its first missile until 2024,” Politico reported. “The Navy is aiming to put its own version of the missile on a destroyer in 2025 and on Virginia-class submarines in 2028.”

Experts say that China is significantly more advanced than the U.S. or Russia when it comes to hypersonic technology.

General John Hyten, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the No. 2 person in the U.S. military, said that the weapons that China was developing “look like a first-use weapon. That’s what those weapons look like to me.”

Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe warned in early 2021 that the Biden administration was in for a shock once they were finally brought up to speed on the advancements that the Chinese military has made in recent years…READ MORE (Daily Wire)

Martin comments: Pay close attention to the subheading. “Reportedly used” hmm…I’m always wary when a source says “According to CNN…according to Bloomberg”. Show us the evidence please. However we’ll assume there’s validity to the claims. I also note, hot on the heels of yesterdays posting from RT about Russia joining forces with the CCP (a rather obvious progression of events) that this Daily Wire article makes frequent references to China and it’s advanced military technology.

I also note that no noise is made about the USA’s usual technique, in direct opposition to the braggery of Russia and China, of keeping it’s military advancements under wraps until the final moment: Witness the sudden appearance of stealth aircraft in Desert Storm, despite the aircrafts in question having been in prototype form since the mid 70’s and fully operational since the early 80s (leading to a surge in Black Triangle UFO reports). No mention whatsoever about the US Space Fleet that was given much publicity under the Trump presidency. No mention of HAARP-derived technology that can not only affect weather, but can actively knock missiles out of the sky.

I suspect both Russia and the CCP aren’t as far ahead as they think or claim they are.

One also has to ask: Since Russia and Ukraine are on each other’s doorstep, one would think it rather pointless to use hypersonic missiles that would barely get up to speed and altitude before hitting their target? It must take some time for these missiles to wind up to cruising speed and sufficient altitude to actually become “hypersonic”? I suspect this is more about A-psychological warfare and B-US military drumming up an excuse to roll out the latest American superweapons (refer Russell Brand’s commentary on US Military-industrial war profiteering at link below:)
