The Fattah hypersonic missile has a range of 1400 km and is capable of penetrating all defensive shields.
"Fattah" can maneuver in the atmosphere and out of it, remaining invisible to radar systems.
Again, in total denial of the Starlink DEW reality. Time is running out before the completion of the 42'000 orbital platforms by 2027!
Only a few months ago, Hajizadeh claimed it would either take decades to develop an anti-hypersonic system or be impossible altogether. Might have been a little overoptimistic.
Israel's Rafael defense contractor says it has been developing an anti-hypersonic missile, dubbed Sky Sonic. The missile has been in development for around 3 years, and will soon undergo first flight tests.
Rafael’s Sky Sonic Interceptor Is Designed To Kill Hypersonic Threats
Jun 14, 2023
RAFAEL announced today it had begun the development of a new interceptor designed specifically against hypersonic missiles. The company has been developing the new interceptor for the past three years and expects to have a prototype ready for flight testing soon.
The new system will be officially unveiled at the 54th Paris Air Show, opening next week.
The Sky Sonic interceptor represents a major technological leap in hypersonic missile defense. Designed with exceptional maneuverability and high-speed capabilities, it effectively neutralizes hypersonic missiles with unmatched precision and stealth.
Hypersonic missiles encompass new threats, including hypersonic atmospheric cruise missiles, gliders, and cruisers that travel at incredible speeds while maintaining exceptional accuracy and maneuverability. Unlike ballistic missiles, hypersonic missiles can change their course mid-flight. Consequently, a successful defense against hypersonic threats requires a multifaceted approach that involves countering their speed and effectively tracking, detecting, and intercepting their unpredictable flight paths.
Officials indicated that the kill vehicle is designed for a kinetic kill but will also be effective close to its target. Sky Sonic will be able to deal with hypersonic threats flying at Mach 10 and above, either hypersonic glide vehicles (the near-term threats) or hypersonic cruise missiles expected in the future. Rafael’s Sky Sonic introduction comes a week after Iran announced its first hypersonic missile – FATTAH, which Iran claims is a hypersonic reentry vehicle with a range of 1400 km.
