White House announces hypersonic missile program with Australia and UK
(Worthy News) – The Biden administration announced an expansion of the Australia-United Kingdom-United States partnership Tuesday to include the development of hypersonic and counter-hypersonic weapons systems.
The announcement comes roughly seven months after the AUKUS partnership was launched, with the clear goal of helping Australia develop a nuclear submarine fleet to counter China’s presence in the Indo-Pacific region.
“We are fully committed to establishing a robust approach to sharing naval propulsion technology with Australia that strengthens the global non-proliferation regime,” the three countries said in a joint statement Tuesday afternoon. “We also committed today to commence new trilateral cooperation on hypersonics and counter-hypersonics, and electronic warfare capabilities, as well as to expand information sharing and to deepen cooperation on defense innovation.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
