The US military’s top officer has confirmed that China recently tested an advanced hypersonic weapon, calling it a “very significant” development to which Washington was giving close attention.
General Mark Milley, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, said the test of the nuclear-capable weapon was close to a “Sputnik moment” — referring to the start of the space race between the US and Soviet Union when the world’s first artificial satellite was launched by Moscow in 1957.
“What we saw was a very significant event of a test of a hypersonic weapon system. It is very concerning,” Milley told Bloomberg television.
