The U.S. has weapons systems that neither Russia nor China is aware of. American leader Donald Trump said this on Friday, September 11, speaking to his supporters in Michigan.
“We have systems, missiles, military… We have systems that you have not seen before! Chairman [of [China] Xi [Jinping] has nothing like it, [President of Russia Vladimir] Putin has no such systems. Nobody has anything like that! – quotes him as The Hill.
He stressed that the U.S. has “the greatest weapons in the world”.
“I want people to know that we have the best systems, the best equipment and the best people in the world. There is nobody better than the American military,” the head of state noted.
The day before it became known that the Pentagon will conduct over 40 tests of hypersonic weapons in the next four years.
At the beginning of September, the American military department announced successful tests of hypersonic missile prototypes. The Pentagon noted that it was developing “critical technologies” for creation of effective hypersonic air-based cruise missiles.
In July, the U.S. President’s Special Representative for Arms Control, Marshall Billingsley, admitted that the United States was lagging behind China in terms of testing hypersonic weapons, while Russia had deployed two types of such systems.
