Hypersonic weapons.  The American test failed

The U.S. Department of Defense says a test of a supersonic missile system in Hawaii has failed due to a problem after ignition. Work is underway to find the cause.

This was the second test flight to fail. During the first test in October, the amplifier failed, preventing the missile from exiting the missile. These types of weapons are expected to be installed on Zoomwald submarines and Virginia type submarines. The Army is developing the land-based version and the contractors are Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Krumman Corp.

As rivals including Russia, China and North Korea develop systems that fly at five times the speed of sound, the Pentagon is pushing for the implementation of hypersonic systems. – Bloomberg reported.

China, which has been investing heavily in hypersonic weapons, placed them in orbit last July. In January, North Korea conducted two separate missiles of supersonic missile systems traveling several hundred kilometers.
