MiG-31BM with Kinzal Hypersonic Missile..

Nightmare scenario?

Russia sells the plans to this missile to China.

Nightmare on steroids?

China improves it as a land attack hypersonic missile and builds these by the bushel and instead of going after ships/airbases/logistics hubs, decides that they're better used against US Marines that are operating shore based anti-ship missiles.

The HIMARS is decent enough in its original role.  As a highly protected anti-ship missile launcher I'm not so sure.  Operating in a high tech battle with enemy advanced ISR assets roaming?  Again I'm not so sure.

Even with this new concept we're still going to need speed and armor.
