China tests supersonic rocket in orbit - US on alert!

Power Demonstration by China, which put its weapon system into orbit, surprising intelligence officials in the US and beyond. The Financial Times reported over the weekend that the China tests new space capability by launching supersonic rocket into orbit.

The test took place in August. China has launched a missile capable of has a nuclear warhead. The rocket made him around the Earth in orbit before starting the descent to its target.

The country had officially announced the 77th and 79th launches of the Long March 2C rocket in July and August, but there was no announcement of a 78th launch.

According to the Financial Times, this launch from China was secret and the country sent the supersonic rocket into orbit.

The rocket went around the Earth and started aiming at its target, but ended up about 40 miles away from him.

However, according to sources in the Financial Times This test shows that China has made "amazing progress on supersonic weapons" and that its technology is far more advanced than the United States believed.

A nuclear weapons expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology told the Financial Times that the technology could help China dismantle US missile defense systems.

Another expert says that this technology is important not only because of the speed, but also because of the low flight profile, which is really good for avoiding ground sensors.

"The United States relies on some of these sensors, and if it were to launch in a real crisis, the United States would probably be able to detect its launch, but it could not reliably predict the flight path.".

In addition, supersonic rockets are capable of doing many maneuvers something that makes more difficult to monitor and deal with.

Drew Thompson, a former US defense official, said that this test of China "will really change US strategic calculations".

Mr Thompson emphasized that if China could conduct multiple tests by sending an ultrasonic rocket into orbit and improve its accuracy, then "changes the game in a way that few others have really changed the balance".

"Once operational and credible, it will undermine US missile defenses and make the US vulnerable.".

Michael Shoebridge, director of defense, strategy and national security at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said that traditional ballistic missiles (ICBMs) carrying nuclear weapons "remain extremely capable weapons of mass destruction from which it is very difficult to defend".

New weapons, however, will require new approaches to dealing with them.

Countries such as the United States have developed defense systems for traditional ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, and have begun to use ultrasonic technology, but whether they are able to defend themselves effectively against supersonic missiles is unknown.

But OK. Michael Shoebridge, director of defense, strategy and national security at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, stressed that US nuclear weapons will remain capable of hitting Chinese targets.and thus provide a credible deterrent to Beijing considering using these or other offensive nuclear weapons against the US".

In the Sunday newspaper, the Global Times reported that China is constantly trying to reduce the gap with the US in some key military technologies as the Asian country is constantly developing its economic and technological power.

China has tested the supersonic rocket in orbit and seems to be making leaps in the development of this technology, as it sees it as critical to defending itself against American advances in ultrasound and other related technologies.
