The Poles saw "some problems" in the tests of the Russian "Zircon"


On Thursday, November 26, 2020, another test of the Zircon hypersonic missile took place in Russia - it was launched from the Admiral Gorshkov frigate in the White Sea at a target in the Barents Sea, 450 km from the launch site. Similar tests took place in January and October this year - according to the correspondents of the Polish edition of Defense 24, repeated launches of Zircon indicate probable problems with new missiles.


Experts from Poland prompted pessimistic reflections on the testing of Russian missiles by the Kremlin's silence on the data on the January launches, as well as the cost of such launches. So, in February of this year, TASS reported that the first tests of "Zircon" took place in February, but the Russian Ministry of Defense did not publish a corresponding statement. Moreover, the launches were then carried out by the lead frigate of project 22350 "Admiral Gorshkov", and not the first serial frigate "Admiral Kasatonov", which fired Onyx and Caliber missiles in the Barents Sea in February.

The fact that in its message dated November 26, 2020, the Russian defense department was silent about the January tests may indicate their failure.

- believes Defense 24.

The announcement by the Russian defense department of the Zircon tests that took place in November speaks of the successful launch of the missile launches. At the same time, such firing just a month later from the same warship may indicate that in October Russia had some problems with the Zircons, the newspaper writes.

On our own behalf, we add that watching the ridiculous Polish media, which, in an outburst of hatred towards Russia, is extremely awkwardly trying to pass off wishful thinking, becomes more and more fun, but less interesting. The arguments of the "military experts" of the Polish specialized edition, who rely on their own speculations and absolutely illogical conclusions, are more like outright propaganda aimed at discrediting the latest Russian developments. The Avangard hypersonic missile system, the Dagger hypersonic missile system and the Peresvet laser system, which were demonstrated almost 3 years ago in the form of “cartoons”, while on experimental combat duty, are being successfully mastered by the troops. Well, let's wait and "Zircon", we are in no hurry ...

    Tests are therefore carried out to identify problems. Therefore, test launches continue until they are successful. If they do. Zircon has been launched since 2011, approximately. And only the last launches take place without comment. Which is the purpose of the tests.

      That you are rinsing the brains of the youth. The Americans made a rocket and immediately launched it with the crew to the moon. The damned mice ate the documentation and the necessary tools for processing and special soldering irons on coal, very secret.

    As clear as night. If you have not consulted with the Poles, and have not asked how they assess this, then everything is bad. In Russia, they got to the point that they didn't ask Poland, or they made the right bigus. Moreover, even when I was little, and my father loved a bigus under 100 grams of breech, then a neighbor, a Polish girl, said Khvanya, you make a very tasty bigus, how? Mom said - my mom taught and then the neighbor Franya sighed deeply. But my mother did not learn how to cook bigus from the Poles.

    The indignation of the Poles especially amuses the lack of data on the cost of launches! Do the Americans place this data?
    What, the estimate should be posted in the public domain? CD and TD for everyone to see, so that, then, full publicity, as under Gorbachev?

    The Poles saw ...

    Ek caught the journalists, well, the Poles saw something there. So what? What now to grieve. If all is well, there is no point in dispersing negative energy. It can be taken with humor or simply not noticed. The fact is a fait accompli. And if not, then of course ay yay yay.
    But now the "noticed" Polish media will feel more important than he really is. Journalists will not leave each other without work. laughing

    ... in a fit of hatred for Russia, they are extremely awkwardly trying to pass off wishful thinking ...

    Maybe this source has hatred without impulses, quite constant, stable, and the look from the Polish bell tower is quite real and appropriate.

    ... discrediting the latest Russian developments. ...

    What? Did everyone expect a NATO member country to start playing commercials three years ago? You can offer them an export version of the same dagger or zircon. Maybe then they will calm down? laughing
