“The U.S. Army reportedly scrapped another test of a hypersonic missile at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida following pre-flight checks.
The Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) — which the Congressional Research Service says is being developed in close coordination with the U.S. Navy – was supposed to test launch Wednesday following a scrubbing in March, according to The War Zone.
‘On Sept. 6, the Department planned to conduct a flight test at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida, to inform our hypersonic technology development. As a result of pre-flight checks, the test did not occur,’ a spokesperson from the Department of Defense told Fox News Digital in an e-mail Thursday morning.”
Analyst Comment: Russia has developed and field tested hypersonic missiles in Ukraine, although there is debate over whether the fielded missiles were capable of hypersonic, controlled flight.
