china reportedly tests new ballistic weapon that flies under radar


hgvs are similar to traditional ballistic missile systems in that they can deliver a payload, be it conventional or nuclear, to a distant target. but hgvs fly at lower altitudes than typical ballistic missiles, meaning existing missile defense systems might initially miss them since those defense systems typically scan higher altitudes. there's a functional tradeoff, however, because when hgvs start to descend, they fly much slower than traditional ballistic missiles. some defense systems will likely be able to take hgvs into account with a few upgrades. however, countries with less developed defense technology might not be able to deal with this new type of weapon as easily.the source told the diplomat that the df-17 is expected to be put into operation in 2020.
