The model was demonstrated on February 27 in Washington, according to a report from Next Generation Weapons Technology on Facebook.

LRHW, according to these data, is a class of ultra-fast and maneuverable missiles that are launched from mobile ground platforms. They are able to move five times faster than the speed of sound and work at different heights.

It is noted that LRHW samples are planned to be transferred to the army by 2023.

Recall on Friday at the Pentagon that the development of hypersonic weapons systems by “US adversaries” is seen by the Pentagon as a serious challenge.

In early February, Acting Secretary of the U.S. Navy Thomas Modley compared the lag behind Russia in the field of hypersonic weapons with the launch by the Soviet Union of the first artificial Earth satellite in 1957.
