A Boeing B-52H Stratofortress subsonic strategic bomber “successfully liberated the AGM-183A Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW),” designed to reach speeds of over 25,000 kilometers per hour, the US Air Force said.

“After leaving the aircraft, the ARRW’s booster ignited and burned for the expected amount of time, reaching hypersonic faces five times greater than sound speed,” the air force said.

Last month, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that Russian forces had used “several” hypersonic weapons against Ukraine, but that they were not “a major game changer”.
