At the beginning of article Thompson refers to the report of Institute of space researches of Mitchell in which it is told about need of the USA more actively to develop hypersonic weapon — development of similar arms will provide the USA "unprecedentedly fast coverage, global access to the purposes and "effect of the fourth measurement", having effectively reduced opponents the period for decision-making and having completely made the existing anti-aircraft weapons outdate". "The Russian and Chinese researches, tests and developments of hypersonic weapon considerably outstripped works of the USA" — Thompson writes. He gives tests of the Russian hypersonic complex Avangard which were carried out in December, 2018 as an example. Speed of a rocket reached about 27 Moves. Thompson also refers to the statement of the Deputy Pentagon chief Mike Griffin that China carried out "more tests for last year, than the USA for the last decade", and reached initial operational potential in the field of hypersonic weapon. "However now the USA has no similar potential. The severe reality is that our present systems of missile defense, as well as our system thinking are simply incapable to resist to this threat" — Thompson wrote. At the end of December, 2018 the Ministry of Defence at the request of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin carried out flight tests during which successful missile launch of a complex Avangard with the hypersonic planning winged fighting block was conducted. Putin who gave the command for start-up said that that the first regiment of Avangard in the Strategic Missile Troops (SMT) will be developed in 2019. Later the Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov said in an interview to Russia-24 TV channel that the complex rocket Avangard is capable to gather speed to 27 Moves.
