Artillery Shoots Down Drone Resembling Cruise Missile! Hypervelocity Weapon System Test

2 min read

Amazing video footage shows US artillery shooting down a target drone that is resembling a cruise missile. So in fact American artillery is now able to shot down cruise missiles and other forms of aerial targets thanks to the Hypervelocity Weapons System.

On 3-Sep-2020, as part of the NORAD-NORTHCOM-led ABMS Onramp 2, a DoD Strategic Capabilities Office Hypervelocity Gun Weapon System shot down a surrogate cruise missile target. The intercept, made by an Army howitzer-fired projectile, demonstrated the feasibility of a cost-effective defense for US bases and served as a proof-of-concept for ABMS as a viable homeland-defense command-and-control system. The Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) is an Air Force-led program charged with providing the digital framework to enable Joint, All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) to the joint war-fighting community.(United States Air Force Video by Col.
