The world’s largest defense corporation Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has released a video on YouTube about the work of the Skunkworks division, which is engaged in the most modern and secret developments in the company, learned GDC.
The Skunkworks is an official pseudonym for Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs, formerly called Lockheed Advanced Development Projects. The Lockheed Martin Skunkworks employs 3,700 employees at facilities in Palmdale, California, Marietta, Georgia, and Fort Worth, Texas. They are working on over 500 projects, from radar coatings to war games to compact fusion reactors to a Mach 6 spyplane.
The Skunkworks is responsible for a number of aircraft designs, including the U-2, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, and the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, which are used in the air forces of several countries.
According to the Defense Blog, the animation shows the destruction of the RT-2PM2 “Topol-M” mobile-strategic missile system and the S-400 Triumf covering it.
The elimination of targets, as noted in the video, is carried out by a cruise missile, which is guided by a fighter, drones and airborne early warning and control aircraft.
In January, Lockheed Martin promised to produce 180 fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II fighters each year by 2024.
In July 2019, vice-president of the military-industrial giant Jeff Babione said that Lockheed Martin is working on a second test version of the fourth prototype of the compact fusion reactor Compact Fusion Reactor (CFR).
On February 6 another US company (Bell Helicopters) demonstrated in a provocative video how their latest Bell 360 helicopter model destroys Russia’s S-400 air defense system.
