China surprised the United States when it conducted an experiment in August with a new supersonic missile that orbited the Earth before hitting its intended target, the Financial Times reported Sunday night.

The two officials said that China recorded an "amazing progress in developing hypersonic weapons and more advanced than is believed in Washington. Another factor pointed out that he was not sure how China managed to achieve this technology.



According to official data, in Beijing, China set up such experiments In 79 Long March 2C rockets carrying these missiles, five people involved in the details of the experiment told the Financial Times that the missile flew low before descending towards its target, which it missed by 38 km.

Despite this, the experiment once again raises questions about the United States' lack of assessments of China's military capabilities.

"We have no idea how they did it," said one source.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the United States sees China as the biggest challenge in the supersonic weapons arena, flying at five times the speed of sound. "We have clarified our concerns about the military capabilities that China is developing, capabilities that will only increase tensions in the region and beyond," Kirby said.



In China, however, they have argued that they do not have a global strategy or plans for military action. "We are not interested in having an arms race with other countries," spokesman Liu Pangio said. "In contrast, the United States has in recent years invented excuses such as the 'Chinese threat' to justify expanding its weapons arsenal and developing supersonic weapons. This has directly intensified the arms race in this area and severely undermined global strategic stability."



In addition to the United States and China, Russia is also accelerating the development of its supersonic weapons. Although they are slower than ballistic missiles,They do not have a permanent trajectory back to the atmosphere and have maneuverability that makes it difficult for them to be located by defense systems.
