UK, Australia and US agree to ‘accelerate development’ on hypersonic missile technology

The UK, US and Australia have stepped up their defence partnership by agreeing to work together on hypersonic and anti-hypersonic weaponry.

The Australia-UK-US – or AUKUS – deal announced last September initially focused on sharing nuclear submarine development in the Pacific at a time of growing concern over China.
