Although this story shortly after the release was quickly deleted, but because it is the first time that news of the official bodies officially revealed high supersonic aircraft, causing a lot of concern and discussion.
Has analysis think, from official media of reported can see, this flight of high supersonic aircraft is has landing gear of large aircraft, and without machine tools carry or other help push; can achieved high supersonic flight, and in Flight Center of this flight time up number hours; despite reported in the mentioned has "test pilot", but due to no machine of control member also can called "test pilot", so cannot confirmed this times flight of high supersonic aircraft is was driving also is no driving.
So-called Hypersonic, refers to the aircraft flying faster than Mach 5. At present, the reusable space launch vehicle and Hypersonic technology development has become the United States and other Western countries a new generation missile, focus on research and development of new space vehicles. However, due to the development of this type of aircraft is difficult, need to research a lot of technical difficulties, so far only a few countries have developed skills. In the aircraft industry in this report also refers to the project's staff "in the face of this type of cross-generation aircraft, have an emulative momentum", "unyielding" may indicate that the project has encountered setbacks.
Military expert analysis, comprehensive information on Hypersonic vehicles in China in recent years, the test flight of a new Hypersonic vehicle could be a large strategic reconnaissance aircraft, if indeed the Hypersonic demonstrator to someone, then the machine will be more than "black bird" strategic reconnaissance aircraft, became the world's fastest manned aircraft. If it is unmanned, then it should be United States like SR-72 Hypersonic UAV. Military experts also said, in high supersonic of flight conditions Xia, regardless of for image intelligence reconnaissance also is completed weapons launches, are need solution more of technology difficulties, but anyway, this times flight of success for China new high supersonic aircraft design research, and special test technology development are has important meaning, once high supersonic aircraft can official served, will makes China of strategy deterrence capacity was enhanced."
