USAF Awards Raytheon 985 Million USD for Developing a Hypersonic Missile
Raytheon will provide two HACM prototypes. The USAF said the HACM would be a standoff weapon launched from the air to hit high-value targets. It is scheduled that HACM will be usable starting in 2027. The missile will fly at speeds over Mach 5 and is manoeuvrable, making it difficult to track and shoot down enemies.
