The strategic bomber B-52H Stratofortress of the Air Force of the USA made the first flight with the hypersonic AGM-183A aeroballistic missile, reports The Drive.
The test flight took place on June 12 at Edwards Air Force Base (California). A rocket without a warhead was suspended under one of the wings of the bomber and was there during the entire flight time. During the tests, the effects of vibrations and air resistance on the arms and external suspension of the aircraft were monitored.
At the time of publication, the US Air Force did not release photos and video tests.
In May, it was reported that the F-35A Lightning II and F-35C Lightning II fighters will receive AARGM-ER (Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile-Extended Range) supersonic missiles designed to destroy enemy radar defense radars.
In April, a video of the launch of the powder starters of two of the eight turbofan engines TF33-P / 103 B-52 Stratofortress appeared.
The AGM-183A rocket should be ready by the beginning of fiscal year 2022, that is, by October 2021.
