Abstract:

The article analyzes the possibilities of hypersonic weapons to contribute to the fight for maritime superiority. The development, testing, and adoption of hypersonic weapons by the Russian Federation, the United States, and China will inevitably change the operational concepts. Towards that aim, the author examines weapons launched from sea-, land- and air-based platforms with the ability to engage various naval targets.
