According to Newsweek
Chinese military analysts have claimed that China’s new hypersonic ballistic missile, the DF-17, could destroy U.S. defense systems by flying fast and low to evade detection.
China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) fired the rockets, capable of reaching speeds of up to 7,680 miles per hour, in November. The Diplomat reported that the missiles traveled approximately 1,400 kilometers, passing through the Earth’s atmosphere at 10 times the speed of sound.
And because the HGV—which stands for hypersonic glide vehicle—is able to travel at lower altitudes, U.S. defense systems will have less time to intercept it before it reaches its target.
Song Zhongping, a former member of the PLA’s Second Artillery Corps, told the South China Morning Post that the HGV system can be used to carry various kinds of ballistic missiles, including intercontinental ones with a range of at least 5,500 kilometers.
The HGV warheads could also be used with the DF-41, which has a range of at least 12,000 kilometers and can hit anywhere in the U.S. in under an hour, he added.
This is prophecy
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
