Captain 1st Rank: Russian Zircon can easily reach the Pentagon

It seems that Russian missile weapons are reaching a qualitatively new level. So, according to the submariner, Captain 1st Rank Igor Kurdin, the newest Russian Zircon missile, moving at hypersonic speed, if necessary, will be able to hit any administrative or military building in the US capital without the possibility of being detected and destroyed.

The Zircon's range is from 500 to 1000 kilometers. From such a distance, no one will spot our submarine, unless it has been watched for a long time and purposefully. Nuclear submarines can be destroyed by "Zircon" any large administrativepolitical center in the United States, be it a military base or the central building of the Pentagon

- said Kurdin in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.

Previously in the Russian military department told about the second successful tests of a rocket that took off from the nuclear submarine "Severodvinsk", which was at a depth of 40 meters in the waters of the White Sea. During the tests, "Zircon" successfully hit a conditional target in the Barents Sea. The ministry said that launching and hitting a sea target with a missile was recognized as successful.

According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, state tests of the rocket will be completed by the end of this year. "Zirconia" are going to equip multipurpose submarines of project 885M "Yasen-M", frigates of project 22350, as well as the upgraded missile cruiser "Admiral Nakhimov".

        And how are they going to discover it?

        Anything! In the infrared range, it is visible even from space. For this there are satellites SBIRS (American early warning system) and aviation.

    For some reason, in recent years, the worse things are in Russia in the armed forces, the louder the messages about the "miracle of weapons" sound?

        So remember the former Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, a "plywood" plane destroying by its very appearance all enemy aircraft, the SU-57, repairs of the flagships of the Navy, lasting 20-30 years, Armata. Doesn't this show the true state of the country's Armed Forces?

    How some of the "especially gifted" are "burned" by the news of successful tests of the latest Russian weapons. "Zircon" is not yet in the series, but they already have a hyperpuk and a monitor in their saliva laughing The dog barks, the caravan goes

    Zircon is good not only for attacking ground targets, it is also a destroyer of aircraft carrier formations, unless the latter rearrange their orders in an anti-submarine version.
