There’s a New Mystery Strike Weapon Coming to the US Arsenal

Does anyone know anything about this new weapon?

I haven't been able to find any additional information about what this new weapon may be.

This is Boeing's next big destructive bad boy. "Boeing is in production on at least one "proprietary" strike weapon system" says Shelley Lavender, VP and general manager of Boeing's global strike systems. Nobody knows anything about it.

The weapon was shown for the first time at the Surface Navy Association's annual conference in Washington D.C. It could be a Tomahawk-ish cruise missile that can fit in the F-35's weapons bay or some other munition. All we know is that it is big and unlike anything in the current US arsenal.

Here’s what Bill Sweetman wrote at Av Week after a Boeing official’s admission that it had a secret new strike weapon (I’ve got to admit, I was in the room, but chose to write about the new stealthy Super Hornet that Boeing unveiled at the same press conference.):

Boeing is in production on at least one “proprietary” strike weapon system, claims Shelley Lavender, vice president and general manager of global strike systems. But Lavender refused July 20 at the Farnborough International Airshow to provide more information when pressed.

“I have nothing further for you on that,” the executive said.

Could be a long the lines of the 'Prompt Global Strike' missile project that was recently tested.

Downside on the above concept is that although they can carry a conventional warhead, on Russia radar screens they cant tell the diffrence between it and an potential incomming nuclear weapon.

perhaps a new chemical laser system needing a fleet of boeing 747's and a supply chain as long as your arm to remove as much american dollars from the defense budget as possible?

but is there much left really on the missile tech that hasn't been done except hypersonic versions of current tech?

The above project was aimed at getting the missle to travel up to Mach22 with a 2 ton warhead.

This would give the same impact and explosive power as a nuclear device without the radiation, etc.

May be the Boeing X51.

I have no idea what it is but it sounds expensive. Money is nothing though, they can just print more or they can steal it from us like they have been all these years. Anyone else find it funny how they have money for this stuff but not for the actual citizens?

They extort our money from us in order to fund ways to kill us all. #ing evil. No wonder "satan" hates humans, they are showing him up to be a pansy in comparison. There is only one truly evil force in this universe, and its not some mystical made up crap. Its us.

This sounds like a variation of the "rods from the gods "idea....
Basically they orbit some titanium rods in space, and launch them at earth targets travelling such high speeds that they are as strong as nukes.....
Its not new, but it would be pretty deadly.....Its speed impossible to intercept....

Well whatever it is, it's a complete and utter waste of money.

The United States needs to get it's priorities in order.

Anything that we see today as "new" technology, has already been around and in use for about 50-60 years. This isn't new, at all....
