China powers ahead in hypersonic missiles race with world’s most powerful wind tunnel

Posted by in category: military

China has been building the JF-22 hypervelocity wind tunnel in Huairou, an industrial district of Beijing, since 2018. Wind tunnels are large tubes that move air around stationary objects to simulate flying, allowing researchers to learn more about how the object will fly.

The JF-22 will be capable of simulating flying conditions at about 30 times the speed of sound when it is completed in 2022.
