The probability of interception of the Russian "Zircon" by the US missile defense system is named


The active rearmament of the Russian Navy's ships with the Zircon hypersonic SCRC will put an end to the US Navy's dominance in the oceans. A salvo of such missiles from one Russian frigate can send an entire American AUG to the bottom.


This is the opinion of a military expert, captain of the first rank of the reserve Konstantin Sivkov, who commented on the newspaper "Sight" rocket tests conducted on December 11, 2020. He clarified that the implementation of launches from the ship means the onset of the final phase of testing and the imminent appearance of missiles in service.

This is a very successful result. The US Navy does not even have weapons like the Zircon in the project

- said Sivkov.


According to him, the probability of interception of the Russian "Zircon" by the most advanced US missile defense systems is less than 1%. He drew attention to the fact that the most effective way to fight the Americans against the "Zircon" can be improved electronic warfare means. Therefore, Russian specialists and the military must take this into account.

The expert noted that now the superiority of the Americans at sea is overwhelming, but the massive introduction of Zircon missiles will allow the Russians to "zero" it. He added that the hypersonic Zircon is not designed to engage ground targets, so he asked warlike bloggers not to fantasize about attacks along the US coast.

This is an anti-ship missile, therefore, its range is very short. Like any missile, the main thing in it is the warhead (warhead). This missile has a conventional one, although it was possible to deliver a nuclear

- explained Sivkov.

The captain of the first rank explained that the enemy will not allow Russian surface ships to approach the US coast, and the submarines are unlikely to be able to overcome NATO's deeply echeloned ASW zone in the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic. The expert emphasized that the Zircon's main task is to destroy the enemy's surface fleet with air defense and missile defense systems.

Note that these were not the first tests of the hypersonic "Zircon".

    It is high time for Doctor Professor K. Sivkov to treat nerves. He scares the Russians, but now the Americans.

    He is one of the founders of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, an independent non-governmental scientific organization specializing in military analytics

    Russia can build everything in single copies. And if Zircons are produced in the same quantities as Caliber, it will be like pellet to an elephant for the USA.

    According to the data presented, the United States of America currently has about 8 thousand Tomahawk cruise missiles in service, which is 66 times more than that of Russia. Moreover, if within a year US defense enterprises can produce 15000 missiles, then Russia has this figure 50 times less - production capacities are enough only for the production of 300 Kalibr cruise missiles. Information on this subject is provided by the publication "Moskovsky Komsomolets".

    https://avia.pro/news/rossiyskie-rakety-kalibr-okazalis-huzhe-chem-amerikanskie-tomagavki-ih-proizvodstvo-okazalos"

    In 2016, Russian troops received 40 precision weapons carriers and 180 long-range cruise missiles. According to RIA Novosti, this was announced by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu during the "government hour" at the Federation Council.

    American superiority at sea is overwhelming, but the massive introduction of Zircon missiles will allow the Russians to "zero" it

    Conclusion: Sivkov's words are certainly encouraging, but we need to increase production capacity. And if they start making more Zircons, then there will be fewer calibers. And we have them for one volley.

      I fully agree that the number of weapons produced needs to be constantly increased, for this it is necessary to increase the production capacity of military-industrial complex enterprises, improve technological processes, modernize production in a timely manner, eventually switch to a round-the-clock mode of operation in several shifts, but something needs to be done, you cannot stand on place and constantly try to catch up with the departing train !!!

      With a not very large military budget, the defense capability of Russia, according to the reports of the Russian Ministry of Defense, is reliably ensured. There are no people who want to test Russia's strength. So why chase the United States in terms of the number of weapons?

      And Russia doesn't seem to be planning to attack anyone. And for defense, the best deterrent was, is and will be - weapons of mass destruction. The recent "incident" with North Korea clearly proves this.

        Regional conflicts have not yet been canceled, and in such local conflicts the use of nuclear weapons is not possible, but they are the most likely today, for this it is necessary to develop and improve all types of weapons, and not rely only on the last resort - nuclear weapons !!! If you want peace - be always ready for war, no one can ever challenge this wisdom !!!

          Regional conflicts have not yet been canceled

          To solve tactical problems in the context of regional conflicts, Russia has enough precision weapons.
          Russia used "Caliber" during the anti-terrorist operation of the Aerospace Forces in Syria. Point and very effective strikes with these missiles were carried out on terrorist bases in Syria. Thanks, among other things, to these strikes, the main forces of terrorists in Syria have been defeated. There are no other worthy targets for Caliber on the horizon today. It will be necessary, they will be riveted like nails. Few will seem to anyone.

          For comparison, if you like, a little "journey" into the history of the use of such means by the Americans:
          - Massive use of "Tomahawks" during the NATO war against Yugoslavia in 1999. In total, up to 900 sea- and air-launched cruise missiles were fired. Plus 72 days of continuous bombing.
          The result was not impressive: only 15% of the combat potential of the Serbs was disabled. NATO did not dare to launch a ground operation.
          - The last time US Tomahawks were massively used 3 years ago against Syria. Of the 59 cruise missiles fired, only 23 reached targets, without causing, by the way, any significant destruction. The effectiveness of American weapons (or the talent for using them?) Was again not particularly impressive.

          Maybe the great Russian commander was right after all, when he emphasized the art of fighting "not by numbers, but by skill"?

            "The last time the US Tomahawks were massively used 3 years ago against Syria. Of the 59 cruise missiles fired, only 23 reached their targets, without causing, by the way, any significant destruction."

            In this case, in Syria, it was not without the use of our advanced electronic warfare and interception systems, and if not for them, then almost all Tomahawks could successfully hit the assigned targets, with the massive use of electronic warfare systems, the effectiveness of missile strikes is significantly reduced, based on this to hit one target, you may need several missiles, and targets will need to hit hundreds, if not thousands, and in the shortest possible time, so consider how many missiles we need in our arsenal, and if tomorrow there is a global war, then "rivet" them it will be too late, it must be done in advance !!!

              if tomorrow there is a global war, it will be too late to "rivet" them

              Do you seriously believe that tactical weapons will be relied upon in the "global war"?

              According to the Russian defensive doctrine, any aggression against Russia and its statehood will be suppressed in the most severe way. For this, Russia has the Strategic Missile Forces (nuclear triad). This, in turn, is also a deterrent for a potential aggressor.
              That is, in simple terms, a potential aggressor must initially understand that a war, and even more so with the use of massive missile strikes, against Russia, will not be limited to a “local conflict”, but will be instantly translated for the aggressor into a “global conflict”, with all the ensuing consequences for him.

              Having this "deterrent", Russia does not have to "rivet" for future use, in unlimited quantities, although effective (but more at the tactical level), but rather expensive weapon. Why ruin your economy with an arms race? You probably don't want some kind of another raising of the retirement age?
              There must be a healthy balance in everything.

              In the end, Russia has all the necessary technologies, and a sufficient resource base to quickly organize the production of the necessary weapons "in case-of-cases".

            But with this I absolutely completely agree, this is a common truth and you cannot argue with it !!!

    There will be no blows to the decision-making centers.

      With a ready-made hypersonic technology, it is not at all difficult to create a modification of missiles that will successfully hit ground targets, and this will definitely be done in the near future !!! As for the decision-making centers, for their destruction we have completely different missiles, much more powerful and effective !!!

          Well, if a person is stupid and blind, then it is useless for him to prove something, he simply will not understand this, well, of course there is no "Zircon", but instead of him just a log flying through sparrows is launched !!!
