Air Force launches 'game-changing' hypersonic weapon.
This weekend, the US Air Force successfully launched a hypersonic missile off the coast of California.
Our highly competent crew accomplished history with the first air-launched hypersonic weapon, said Lt. Col. Michael Jungquist, who directed the test.
"We overcome last year's hurdles with perseverance, skill, and excitement," said Collins. This is an area for improvement.
The ARRW travelled at five times the speed of sound and burned for the predicted period.
Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Program Executive Officer for Weapons, praised the "excellent success" at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The team's perseverance, expertise, and dedication helped us triumph lately. We want to develop hypersonics.
