The Hypersonic Technology Vehicle-2 is one system being considered to provide the United States with the "prompt global strike" capability to deliver non-nuclear warheads to any location in the world within an hour. Washington could tap that asset to strike an Iranian atomic facility or hit a North Korean missile prior to liftoff, the New York Times reported.
