The termination of work on a promising complex became known from the draft US defense budget for 2021. No reliable information was provided on the reasons for this decision.

In total, for the period from 2020 to 2024 fiscal year, they wanted to allocate about $ 900 million for the program. According to unconfirmed reports, the Mobile Intermediate Range Missile could have a range of up to 3,000 kilometers.

MIRM is far from the first high-profile US military program to be canceled in recent years. We will remind, not so long ago it became known about the termination of work on the promising hypersonic complex Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon. The US Air Force then said that the curtailment of work was caused by a lack of funds.

At the same time, the United States continues to actively work on a number of other hypersonic complexes.
