X-51 Hypersonic Cruise Missile – Fastest Cruise Missile

Filed in Bombs , Military , Missiles 81 comments

Imagine having the ability to strike anywhere in the world within one hour. The X-51 is an amazing hypersonic cruise missile that travels 600 miles in just ten minutes (approximately 3600 MPH or Mach 5).

x 51 cruise missile

Compared with the Tomahawk Missile which travels at a mere 550 MPH, the X51 gives the US the ability to strike enemies quickly before they can evade. As U.S. Strategic Command’s deputy commander Lt. Gen. C. Robert Kehler puts it, the goal of the X51 is “to strike virtually anywhere on the face of the Earth within 60 minutes.”

The power of this weapon once it reaches its unfortunate target is amazing.

Traveling as fast as 13,000 mph, the warheads are filled with scored tungsten rods with twice the strength of steel. Just above the target, the warheads detonate, showering the area with thousands of rods-each one up to 12 times as destructive as a .50-caliber bullet. Anything within 3000 sq. ft. of this whirling, metallic storm is obliterated.

The X-51 Will be the most advanced cruise / long distance missile in the world when it is completed, although there have been protests that the X-51 could trigger a nuclear war. A test run of this weapon in 2008 could appear to be heading toward another nuclear power during portions of its flight pattern which could be provoking. More about this concept can be read at Popular Mechanics

This sounds like a emense inprovement to the existing Tomahawk cruise missile. What gives me chills and probally the enemy too is that fact that it can strike anywhere in under a hour. The fact that it can travel over 13000 miles per hour is crazy. Thats faster than mach 10. This could just be one of our most destructive missiles yet. Russia has no chance to defend against this or any other super power in the world

#6 Rob :

Hello Me again,

Just noticed you mentioned mach 10, that’s the speed the warheads hit at, the actual missile will do mach 5.
Though I’m sure yours will be better as far as targeting and warheads are concerned, which for me being a Brit, is a good thing! (we might even be able to afford one, maybe even two!!)

As Rob said, Indian Russian coaboration Brahmos will beat X-51 with Mac 5.26 in the new Brahmos II. So plan something more…

I’m an indian. I do feel proud of brahmos 2, but the latest test has shown that brahmos 1 relies on gps to locate and hit its target, so in a face off, though travelling at mach 5.2. The indian missile would miss its target, while x-51 would be bang on. The eventuality of any long range cruise missile to surpass american made ones in deterence would be to rely on an independent Gps than an american one.

well check out this link http://www.zeenews.com/nation/2009-04-06/521027news.html next version of brahmos will reach 8 mach. American economy is so down to dogs they need money to pay pension and benefits. They will need to stop all their defence expenditures. No wonder Mr Obama is running here and there asking for nuclear free world. It was USA who built that weapon it is only and only USA who used that weapon. I have nothing against USA, I love USA and its democracy and american dream of freedom. But what you have done in past is going to haunt you. All bragging and boasting by japan and USA together from last few days came out nothing, north korea enjoyed their ballistic testing. What more can I say, USA also losing its diplomacy credibility in world. Well folks if Obama really wants nuke free world he better start in his backyard because really no can is willing to trust USA expect your foreign territorial islands of brits and japanese.

Its amazing how all this conventional weapons would fail against China, Russia or any country who has scalar weapons. Scalar weapons will make any conventional, nuclear weapons obsolete. Before, you say that I don’t know what I’m talking about. I want you to google let me spell it Scalar weapons. It was invented by Russia and deployed since 1965. Unfortunately, Russia has sold the technology to whoever has the money. The only thing the United States have is the inferior HAARP. Both scalar and haarp does exactly the same thing. What it does is heats up the upper atmospher called the ionosphere. Let say the United States wants to attack Russia. All it does is heat up the ionesphere around Russia. If an object such as missiles, planes reaches that part of the atmosphere. It will fry any electronics on board a missile, planes or any object and it just fall back down to earth. This is the ultimate defense system. The Russian Scalar system has the capability to protect itself by having an invisible force field around it. However, the U.S. Haarp have to use a missile to protect itself from any harm. Its amazing all this wasteful spending on weapons system thats already obsolete. Here’s a great website to learn about any weapons system in existence. http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net

Only X-51 I have heard of is a Boeing plane (still in the development phase) that is projected to travel at Mach 7. I wonder why would they put 13000 mph here, and the data provided here itself is very confusing and self contradictory at times. Anyway, if this report, by any chance, is true, it won’t be just to compare it with BrahMos. BrahMos (lab test speed of Mach 5.6) has a range of merely 180 miles (co-developed by Russia and India, where Russia is MTCR signatory, so couldn’t help produce anything of longer range) and the missile talked about here is an ICBM, so certainly with BrahMos it is not a worthy comparison. Also, all Indians should keep in mind that BrahMos is one of the fastest missiles, not exactly the fastest one. I am an Indian.

ya x-51 is a good missile but don,t compare brahmos2. it is also a hypersonic missile.

#19 USA Guy :

With the scalar weapons there is a drawback that would make them completely useless. One you could just send low altitude stealth attacks at high speed so that they don’t enter the ionosphere and they wouldn’t even know you are coming and second that means that you cant launch any attacks while the ionosphere is like that, so you are pretty much trapped without the power to counterattack. The chinese can have there Scalar missiles. You would just be trapping yourself for F22s and other US air crafts to come along and claim air supremacy

Dec 13, 2009
2:10 am
#20 USA Guy :

Answering Bhushan as I understand it is planed on cruising at Mach 5-7 then during the final phase of the attack it accelerates to mach 10 for the final attack. This is because it would be impossible to maintain mach ten for more than a couple minutes.

Hay Just every one stop this bull shit.. We are not here to fight. According to me power of every weapon is depend on how we use it. So no weapon is great or less. US has all the best and advance weapon in the world but they can bring piece in afgan,iraq,somalia even lost war on vietnam. so we can decide who is best with strength of weapon.

#24 raye :

The United States has more advanced conventional weapons better than any country on the planet. Russia’s has the most advanced form of scalar weapon known to man. Russia, military wise, is the most powerful country on the planet. Russia’s can destroy the United States in an hour that’s why the U.S. and Israeli are reluctant to attack Iran because it’s protected by Russia. U.S. Haarp is inferior to Russia’s scalar weapons. The good example of how scalar weapons would look like is the beginning part of the movie The Book Of Eli. Imagine that happening to the whole country of the U.S. and Israeli all at one time. That’s why I said in an hour.

#26 Indian :

Hi all, Brahmos’ range was limited only because Russia is a member of MTCR. Also does anyone think they will develop a hypersonic missile(Brahmos II) if they dont have the technology to hit the target precisely? Russians are never inferior in technology, all they lack is funding. So there is no point in saying that Brahmos-II is a crap.
Also India is developing(one its own hypersonic missile SHAURYA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaurya_missile) which can reach a speed of 6 mach. It was once test fired in nov 12 2008 where it crossed mach 5 even before reaching 300km. So dont think India-Russia cant make an effective hypersonic missile?

Hey, we are Indians & we have lot of things to do rather than just putting attention to missiles & defence. We have enough fire power to deal with our enemys. We have Bramhos , Agni-I,II,III. We also have Akash air defence system , AWACS – early warning system & most important we are a nuclear state. We dont race with US because we take US as our important stratergic partner.We know US has got far more superior technologies & defence systems but it dosent mean that India cant make that. India feeels no need to race with US because it in no way takes US as a threat. We are strong enough to deal with countries like Pakistan, China which may produce any threat to Indian National security .And we have proved this in 3 wars with Pakistan b y beating them.
US citizens shall not forget that whole world is paying very high cost to modern TERRORISM by some extermist & who is responsible for the origin of this terrorism ?
US & policies undertaken by US gov. in the decade of 1980 in Afganistan to beat USSR.
USA is solely responsible for the worst conditions in Afganistan . So keeping this in mind US in no way should make show of their weapons . Every person dying in the terrorist attack across the world then whatever may be its nationality,religon , age is paying cost of his life for the mistake done by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
We Indians are proud atleast we are not KILLERS.

It is very difficult to say which is better & which is infere in full scale war.We knew that during 1965 war between India & Pakistan Indian armament were much infere than that of American supplied armament to Pakistan but India has not only given deep wound but also taken an edge over Pakistan.Similarly during libration of Bangladesh the local warriors with help of Indian army has fougth bravely with much infere weapons than Pakistani Army.Similarly during Kargil war the handful soldiers of North front of Pakistan in a face of mujahidin given same wound to the mighty Indian army & taken an edge initially but ended with defeate & withdrawl from occupied areas.
Now at this time neither India nor Pakistan dare to attack any one because of WMD same will be applicable to Russia–USA & USA — China.

hey raye
nice man from you i ve learnt that there is anew range of weapon exists ie scalar weapon.
but actually all nation have a common enemy many this enemy kills less people in rich nations and spares less people in poor nations. it is hunger, malnutritions etc till now no nation is interested in fighting this enemy. and also all nations have an invincible enemy with in them which has no friend or enemy that is greedy people includes politicians, business persons(not all because some are good)etc., and their close friend, pollution(all types). no one have a plan to deal with them, actually they are the real enemy.

Hi Guys

The very purpose of making these missiles is to launch crippling attacks on nests of snakes, terrorists havens. Future strike scenario will have countries like USA, Russia and India collaborating with each other rather than being at war.
Brahmos or any missile with speeds in excess of mach 3+ will need to be complemented with precision strike capacity to make non nuclear strikes effective.
Lets discuss instead on how terror camps in Pakistan could be eliminated using these formidable missiles.

#63 dudescape :

this only works in theory because the most advanced forms of detections can close in on this type of hypersonic missile because of its very high speed it makes it more detectable in infrared. the only way it would work is if after it has travelled hypersonically and reached its booster stage it goes covert slowing down considerably by going slower than the speed of sound by using attached mini hove blades that could make it hover and the descending into the sea and act as a torpedo until it finally gets close to the shore and goes hypersonic again out of the water and strikes the target

This is one part of the U.S.’s capabilities… Why on Earth would we want anyone to know what we can do in full? They say, “still in development” or “not in production” but what idiot would not want to make his enemies underestimate him so he could gut them when they least expect it? War is the development of technology, a logistics game, and secrecy. Every country right now has weapons they are not telling the world about and I’m damn sure that the U.S., India, China, Russia, etc., will not go about saying everything they have up their sleeves. Unlike most countries the U.S. is in a war. War begets innovation and development. Be careful. This missile is most likely NOT still “in development” and any other weapon some of you have been declaring game changers could be circumvented and obsolete by now. Weaponry developed long ago best have serious improvements or it’s not worth its weight in shit.
