Retiring General: China Has Performed HUNDREDS of Hypersonic Weapons Tests — US Has Done 9

Retiring US Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General John Hyten, says China has held hundreds of hypersonic weapons tests. The US has done 9.

General Hyten sat down with The Examiner in a recent interview.

But the US does have its first trans female 4-star Admiral today thanks to Joe Biden.
That ought to count for something, right?

China’s growing military prowess is “stunning” and its advancement in the area of hypersonic missiles is a matter of grave concern, a top US general said on Thursday.

“In the last five years, maybe longer, the United States has done nine hypersonic tests. In the same time, the Chinese have done hundreds,” Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General John Hyten said. “Single digits versus hundreds is not a good place.”

“Now it doesn’t mean that we’re not moving fast in the development process of hypersonics. What it does tell you is that our approach to development is fundamentally different,” he added, according to Washington Examiner. “Calling China a pacing threat is a useful term because the pace at which China is moving is stunning.”

“The pace they’re moving and the trajectory they’re on will surpass Russia and the United States if we don’t do something to change it,” he said, adding that every element built by China is to challenge the US and its allies.
