What is the point of this thread again?
Their warhead(s),will be doing Mach 27 and is maneuverable. This renders the US anti missle/warhead interceptor Technology worthless.
That would be over 21,000mph. I call bullshit. Care to back it up with the Source of this statement?
Just google russia avangard

Well with a thousand forum members, chances are good we have a few PhD engineers with 25 years experience in missile defense, so I'll take your word for it. I had always wondered why there were more Big Boys stationed in the Western Midwest amongst our ICBM launcher fields. Enough said.

What they claim and what it does may be very different. There's a lot of skepticism that it's even operational.

I have 0 insider knowledge of any government entity...

However, I am pretty sure that the highly classified stuff we have would be mind blowing, figuratively and literally.

Like car companies, they can easily come out with a 2021 model that will be mind boggling, however, they need to lead us along with incremental gains in performance, utility, etc.

How long did they have the SR71 before the public found out? reading about computing power and singularity - think about how advanced we've come since those days.

I have no fear of these comments about [insert foreign country] having nukes, long range capability etc.

From a PR perspective - the government probably enjoys these because they create a sense of fear in society's mind allowing them an upper hand. People who have fear are easier to "guide"

I'm sure we have some LASER defence system by now.

I wouldn't be surprised if we have powerful weapons in satellites...

But who cares, we'll probably see these new weapons used against Iran before they are ever used against Russia or China.

You should worry about the Chinese printing US dollars and the fact that they have thousands of secret agents in the country....(kidding, maybe)

It's OK, you can blame it on MKSixer, as I figure he and I are the only ones who actually LIKE watching prancercise.

I'm going to get a Hweai or whatever it is phone and play nothing but Prancercise on it. It will be The Prancercise Enlightenment. Amirite, UncleWede ?
