China's recent test of a hypersonic vehicle should not unduly alarm the United States or any other nation, Chinese military officials say.

The test of China's new "hypersonic glide vehicle," which apparently took place Jan. 9, was not designed to advance the nation's ability to penetrate American missile defense systems, according to a statement issued by China's Ministry of National Defense.

"It is normal for China to conduct scientific experiments within its borders according to its plans," the statement reads, the state-run newspaper China Daily reported today (Jan. 16). "The tests were not aimed at any nation nor any specific target."

Many officials in the United States have expressed growing concern about the pace of China's military development. But China has a long way to go before overtaking the US in this field, some experts say.

"The US still enjoys the leading position in military ability, both strategic weapons and conventional armaments," said Fan Jishe, an expert on US studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, according to China Daily. "The US has been devoted to high-tech weapons research for a long time, and China is still rather backward in this field."

Indeed, the Pentagon has been developing its own hypersonic vehicles for years. For example, the Air Force worked with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) on the $300 million X-51A hypseronic program, which began in 2004 and wrapped up in May 2013 with the test flight of the fourth and final robotic Waverider scramjet vehicle.

And DARPA has also been developing an unmanned bomber prototype called the HTV-2, which reached 20 times the speed of sound during an August 2011 test flight before losing control.

This smacks of hypocrisy that China has to down play fears ( Apologise to) for other nations but the Americans can do the same tests and don't have to apologise for doing so while China does!

Ni hao Davy.

Sad when a country is only concerned with it's military might.
