US Unable to Down Advanced Russian Missiles - STRATCOM Chief

In his Federal Assembly address last March, President Vladimir Putin for the first time unveiled an array of advanced Russian weapons, including the Poseidon nuclear-powered underwater drone torpedo, an intercontinental cruise missile and a hyper-sonic nuclear warhead.

The United States will have problems containing state-of-the-art Russian missiles in the future, which is why it is necessary to extend the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) so that it covers such weaponry, General John Hyten, head of the US Strategic Command (STRATCOM), told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday.

“I get concerned that 10 years (from now) and beyond, that with torpedoes, cruise missiles, and hypersonic (weaponry), that it can go completely in the other direction, that we would have difficulty. I have no problem saying I can defend the nation today, and I think the commander after me can, but I worry about the commander after the commander after the commander,” Hyten pointed out.
