China successfully fires radical hypersonic ‘very long range air to air missile’ that could hit targets 300 miles away
China has become the latest country to successfully test fire a hypersonic missile, it has been claimed.
A Chinese J-16 strike fighter test-fired the giant missile earlier this month, successfully destroying the target drone at a very long range, according to Popular Science.
Its experts analysed pictured of the launch, and concluded the missile was 19 feet long, and roughly 13 inches in diameter, meaning it could hit targets up to 300 miles away.
‘This is a big deal,’ wrote Jeffrey Lin and P.W. Singer.
‘This missile would easily outrange any American (or other NATO) air-to-air missile.’

You are right. Bill should be charged with treason for allowing the missile guidance secrets to be sold to China, and Hillary should have rejected the campaign donations that followed from various Chinese businessmen and companies after.
