BEIJING , Oct 17 (Reuters) - China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August, showing a capability that caught U.S. intelligence by surprise, the Financial Times reported, citing five unnamed sources. The report late on Saturday said the Chinese military launched a rocket carrying a hypersonic glide vehicle that flew through low- orbit space, circling the globe before cruising towards its target, which it missed by about two dozen miles. "The test showed that China had made astounding progress on hypersonic weapons and was far more advanced than US officials realised," the report

The missile circled the Earth at low orbit before speeding toward its target and “demonstrating an advanced space capability that caught US intelligence by surprise”. Three people briefed on the intelligence told the FT that the missile missed its target by over 20 miles (32 kilometers). China has been aggressively developing the technology, seeing it as crucial to defend against US gains in hypersonic and other technologies, according to a recent report by the US Congressional Research Service (CRS). The reported test comes as US- China tensions have mounted and Beijing has

according to the "Financial Times", China launched in August a missile nuclear capacity that went around the land in low orbit

China continues to progress in hypersonic missile technology. For this, the country tested a new spatial capacity with this Weapon , reported Saturday the Financial Times (FT).

The article of the British economic and financial daily, citing several sources of the test, indicates that Beijing launched in August a missile with nuclear capacity which went around the land in low orbit before going down to its Target, missed more than 32 kilometers in three sources.

The sources of the FT have declared that the hypersonic glider had been transported by a Long walk rocket, whose launches are generally announced, while the August test has been kept secret. Above all, Chinese progress in hypersonic weapons "took US intelligence by surprise," according to the article.

In addition to Beijing, the United States, Russia and at least five other countries work on this technology. Hypersonic missiles, such as the traditional missiles that can carry nuclear weapons, can fly more than five times the speed of sound. The ballistic missiles fly high in space by making an arc to reach their target, while a hypersonic missile takes a low trajectory in the atmosphere, reaching potentially faster its target. Above all, a hypersonic missile is maneuverable (like a much slower, often subsonic cruise missile), which makes it more difficult to follow and counter.

"No one can force Taiwan to take the path that China has drawn for us," said the president, saying that the island is "on the front line to defend democracy".

Beijing : China has tested a new space capability with a hypersonic missile , the Financial Times reported on Saturday. The report, citing multiple sources familiar with the test , said Beijing in August launched a nuclear-capable missile that circled the Earth at low orbit before descending toward its target, which three sources said it missed by over 20 miles (32 kilometers). FT sources said the hypersonic glide vehicle was carried by a Long March rocket, launches of which it usually announces, though the August test was kept under wraps.

strong tensions between Beijing and Washington

countries like the United States have developed systems designed to defend against cruise and ballistic missiles, but the ability to track and slaughter a hypersonic missile. China has developed technology in an offensive way, considering it as crucial to defend against American advances in hypersonic and other technologies, according to a recent Research Service of the US Congress (CRS).

The test reported by the Financial Times also occurs while the American-Chinese tensions increased and that Beijing intensified its military activities near Taiwan.
