>MOSCOW (Reuters) -The director of a Russian laboratory working on hypersonic missiles, a weapon where President Vladimir Putin claims a strategic advantage for Russia, has been arrested on suspicion of treason, the state-run TASS news agency reported on Friday.Looks like the official reason is "selling secrets to the Chinese," but let's be real. This guy was arrested because his meme missile didn't do shit in Ukraine except flatten an empty farm.
>>54678485meanwhile american HGW (aka real hypersanics) projects are shaping up nicely
>>54678485Nah they just charged too much (that is to say more than free) and Putin is just cutting down on MIC corruption as it directly reduces the amount of money he can embezzle
>>54678485>Look it up>This institute has nothing to do with making missiles
>>54678517>Dr. Alexander Shiplyuk, an acclaimed Russian scientist and a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, specializes in high-speed aerogas dynamics and experimental research of gas flows. Key areas of his research interest include experimental aerothermal dynamics of hypersonic aircraft with straight jet engines.>The institute’s chief research fellow Anatoly Maslov was arrested on high treason charges on June 27 and was taken to Moscow’s Lefortovo detention center. A source close to the investigation told TASS that the man is suspected of sharing classified information linked with hypersonic research. His case is being probed into by Russia’s Federal Security Service.Directly from the Horse's mouth, the Russian government would never lie about why they imprisoned someone
>>54678504The Chinese are built for HGWHuge Government Weapons
>>54678553So that's how America finally achieved hypersonic...
>>54678570No they did that by dropping Michael from Wisconsin from a C130. You may not believe this but the FDA is in league with the DOD to make Americans fatter so we have a large supply of cheap guided high velocity munitions
>>54678485I bet the US can stop researching hypersonic weapons now. Case closed.
>>54678485>state-run TASS news agency reportedSo now/k/ trusts Russian sources?
>>54678617yes the story about russia imprisoning people us made up, they never do thatZ
>>54678570https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypersonic_Air-breathing_Weapon_Concepthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_X-51_Waveriderhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DARPA_Falcon_Projecthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprint_(missile)I should add that the AGM-183 is a Mach 20 kinetic fuckspike unlike anything in either Chinese or Russian development with enough kinetic energy at impact to shatter the Three Gorges Dam in one or two hits.
>>54678617As it relates to admissions of Russian mistakes, yes. In fact I love it when Russian state media reinforces claims of Russia's fuckups because now not even the strongest, orthodox convert, slavaboo can argue against it
>>54678617No, because they obviously lied about why the researcher was arrested.Now bring your butt over here so I can pee in it.
>>54678660I love the AC7 dog because you know he was the one to start the war. In fact Captain Torres was under his direct command
>>54678688The dog was the Belkan head of state in 1995, would you expect anything less?
>>54678485>Once again, OP was a faggotJailing scientists for bullshit reasons is a very old FSB tradition, originating from days of USSR and KGB. Perfect way to meet quota of treason arrests, you know.>>guy was arrested because his meme missile didn't do shit>Once again, OP was a faggotHe is a scientist, not a weapon manufacturer.
>>54678730Why did you accompany this post with a selfie?
>>54678660>I should add that the AGM-183 is a Mach 20 kinetic fuckspike unlike anything in either Chinese or Russian development with enough kinetic energy at impact to shatter the Three Gorges Dam in one or two hits.>The AGM-183A has a claimed maximum speed of more than 3,836 miles per hour (6,173 km/h; Mach 5.0).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-183_ARRW#Design_and_performance
>>54678553I bet he protested the war.
>>54678485Lol, so generals or even Putin really believed in the hypersonic wonderwaffe? Nobody told them it's just Iscander's missile on Mig 31?
>>54678710The dog you see in the game isnt even real, just a decoy maintained by the Princess in order to hide its involvement
>>54679597>when you live in the superpower nation and they don't boast about their capabilities.
>>54678675But I poop from there!
>>54678553>Russian Academy of Sciencesthey got a trippy building
>>54679597>with each aircraft carrying up to 31 of the weapons mounted internally and on external pylons.
>>54684015The bone will bone again!
>>54682098That's a good thing, keep your power level hidden to fool your enemies. Russia currently displayed the exact opposite lmao
>>54678881Oh yeah he wishesThat's Ekaterina Mikhailovna a renown Russian political researcher and a liberal, pretty much a dissident since FebruaryBeloved in Russian speaking internet for loving lotr and advocating that video games are not the root of teenager violence and school shootings
>>54683859Building nicknamed in Russia as "golden brains"
>>54679597That's the speed from the latest test, Zhao. The goal is Mach 20.
Americans are so behind the Hypersonic race, they must steal from Russia their best scientist. Russia 1: Amerikkka 0
>>54678485what is the tactical advantage of imprisoning your best scientists and scaring all others off for the future of your military's technological advancment?
>>54678570America had a fully hypersonic crewed airframe and nearly 1000 deployed hypersonic missiles in the fucking 1960s but okay
>>54686069>what is the tactical advantage of imprisoning your best scientists and scaring all others off for the future of your military's technological advancment?They stop skimping money to buy yachts and prostitutes?
>>54686069This is the only way to keep them in Russia at least it worked somehow during Stalin's
>>54684442Not him but I searched what you said and you're actually right.
>>54686034Ah yes, Geroman.The vatnik poster so retarded even ZOKA considers him a brainwashed idiot.
>>54686069Better than letting them starve like they did with Tsiolkovski.
>>54678553>Moscow’s Lefortovo detention centerHes fucked.
>>54683844No, right now you don't.
>>54678553>the Russian government would never lie about why they imprisoned someonemmmmmmmmmm
>>54683859looks like it came straight out of red alert lol
>>54682098This is the super duper missile. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/16/politics/pentagon-hypersonic-missile/index.html
>>54686147Exactly. US has been working hypersonics since 60s and at time decided it was a waste of money. Times change.
>>54686034XAXAXA YesNow America has caught up and Russia has to prosecute their best scientistTruely a masterstroke of Russian proportions xaxaxaxa )))))))))))))))
>>54686034>serbwhy are they like thiswhat russia ever did to serbs
>>54678660Will any of those be operationally fielded before 2035? No? Well shit, looks like no hypersonic weapons after all, I guess.
>>54687294The AGM-183 and the Army's Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW/Dark Eagle) are both due to be fielded next year. The Navy plans to field a navalized Dark Eagle on Zumwalts by 2025 and Virginia submarines by 2028.
>>54687294"No"In the same way the SR-71 wasn't.
>>54687351>>54687353I'll believe it when I see it, until then you state worshipping redditniks will be giving the vatniks a run for their money by coping over non-operational prototypes.
>>54687288Even better, it's a Serb living in Austria.
>>54678504I'm guessing this means that most of the program's funding went into superyachts and shell companies, and that there aren't enough produced to actually be useful in any capacity.Has there been a single show of force ruse that didn't backfire massively for the Russians?>Sputnik initiates a massively superior space program in the west>the Potemkin bomber ruse causes a massive superiority in US bomber capabilities>boasting about the success of a non-existent 13,000km ICBM results in a massive increase of US investment in ICBMs that actually exist and work>showing off the maximum velocity of the MiG-25P on Israeli radar results in the US developing a superior fighter jet that can actually handle that speed without tearing itself apart>violating the INF treaty to build a handful of barely functional hypersanic wunderwaffle prototypes results in the west once again investing in superior capabilities in this areaIt's like every time they try to fake an advantage, the west rises to the challenge of matching and besting a superior capability that never actually existed.
>>54678730>from days of USSR and KGBPretty sure Stalin had the NKVD killing scientists
>>54683859back when russia could do actually impressive, if batshit kinds of stuff.fact: nobody knows for sure what the inside of the building looks like, what its for, or even how many floors it has. due to the soggy land in that area, the foundations had to be extensive and complex, and suspicion is that there is a underground complex designed to use the extremely dense communications arrays on the roof
>>54683859Soviets had a clear bad guy aesthetic, but atleast it was a classy one compared to nuRussia
>>54687294>Well shit, looks like no hypersonic weaponsyou are and idiot. the US has been fielding hypersonics for more than 50 years
>>54679597>more thanwhat do these words mean, friend?
>>54683859Man that building is peak Soviet.
>>54687407You're arguing against a strawman, vatnik. I like your new buzzword though, easy to catch.
>>54687449I don’t get it. How do they expect us to react?
What's so cool about strapping a regular ballistic missile to the plane and launching in God knows where?
>>54689550Because it goes faster than a normal ballistic missile so they can say it's hypersonic and parade around their newest batch of wunderwaffles
