US To Create Hypersonic Weapon Within 'Couple Of Years' - Defense Secretary
Earlier this week, US Acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy argued that Washington was seeking to develop a hypersonic ballistic missile with a radius range that had previously been banned by the US-Russian Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), which collapsed on August 2.
In February, the United States formally suspended its INF obligations, triggering a six-month withdrawal process. In July, Russian President Vladimir Putin followed suit by signing a decree suspending Moscow's participation in the accord. The sides had been accusing each other of violating the treaty.
