The era of cold-war may have ended in 1991, when member countries formally announced to break away, establishing US supremacy across the globe but still holds the edge on top graded weaponry and has advanced hypersonic technologies than the US.

According to US Vice Chief of Space Operations Gen David Thompson, not just Russia but China is also way ahead of the US in hypersonic technologies. “We are not as advanced as the Chinese or the Russians in terms of hypersonic programs,” Sputnik said at the Halifax International Security Forum.

As per technology assessment Hypersonic missiles fly at least five times at the speed of sound but their ability to glide on the atmosphere while changing direction at such a high speed makes them virtually impossible — with existing radars — to track and destroy.

Gen David Thompson said that currently, Russia is the only country possessing fully operational hypersonic missiles. As per reports, the Russian armed forces have the Kh-47M2 Kinzhal air-launched ballistic missiles, the Avangard hypersonic glide vehicles, and the 3M22 Zircon anti-ship hypersonic cruise missile is being tested.
