Rocket X-50


In Russia, state tests of hypersonic X-50 rocket began.

Russia has begun state testing of the latest X-50 hypersonic missile.

The active development of hypersonic technologies in Russia had a positive impact on the emergence of new types of weapons. Thus, according to the data at the disposal of, at the disposal of the current year, state testing (GI) of the latest X-50 hypersonic guided missile, also known as "715 product" and "75 product", began in Russia.

According to the text of the document, from the beginning of the current year at least three X-50 cruise missiles were manufactured to conduct state tests, while taking into account the information set out in the document, a total of eight tests of the X-2019 rocket are planned for 50.

The preliminary tests of the X-50 rocket were conducted in the 2018 year.

Specialists, in turn, pay attention to the use of the X-50 rocket (9-A-5015) of a certain Orbita IVMO system, while, as was found out, from specialists familiar with the situation, this is a special onboard radio telemetry system.

It should be clarified that the initial data on the development of the X-50 rocket appeared in 2017 - it is planned to equip it with the Russian strategic bombers-missile carriers Tu-22М3, Tu-160 and Tu-95.

"Hyper" cut dough

Wings it does not pobryvaet))) ...
Hyper and winged - kapets !!! )))

X-50 is a shortened version of the X-101 designed for placement in the Tu-22М3 bombshell (it is shorter than the Tu-95MS and even more so than the Tu-160), and X-59MK2 is more suitable for you.

The X-50 aircraft rocket is subsonic and NOT hypersonic and even NOT supersonic. And it is developed at all NOT for strategic bombers, but for supersonic attack aircraft Su-27, Su-30, Su-33, Su-34 and Su-35.

About X-101 - you correctly noticed! The author should be more correct with illustrations ...

And what in this rocket will be "hyper"?

“Hyper” speeds mean great heights (look at the ratio of speeds on high and low in Su-27 or MiG-29), and these are already different trajectories. And the word “winged” is objectively not applicable to such a rocket. -50 with the X-101 image.
