Following the US-lead in hypersonic test flights of scaled models, China is reportedly the second state to conduct hypersonic vehicles (WU-14) with speeds that theoretically can accelerate up to Mach 10 (10 times the speed of sound).

The Pentagon is not commenting on the Chinese flights.

The Chinese Defense Ministry is saying that the tests are “scientific” and not targeted for any specific country.
