"The Chinese military conducted two tests of hypersonic weapons in the summer of 2021," the statement reads.
The first test took place on July 27. The Chinese military has launched a rocket with a partial orbital bombardment system to launch a hypersonic planning aircraft around the Earth, which is capable of carrying nuclear weapons. The United States said they were surprised by the results of the test, as China has demonstrated new weaponry potential.
The second test took place on August 13, but it is still unknown what kind of weapon was tested.
According to the source, the US government is now trying to understand what kind of military potential China is hiding, but the Chinese weapons achievements that are already known "challenge the laws of physics."
As it was reported, in the summer it became known that China is building more than 100 launch mines for nuclear missiles. As of 2021, the government wants to increase the military defense budget to 7%, which should exceed the mark of $200 billion. As of now, China ranks second in the ranking of countries in the military budget. Only United States spends more than that ($740 billion).
