Hypersonic "Zircon" in the ground version will change the balance of power in favor of Russia


On May 28, landmark tests for the Russian promising Zircon hypersonic missiles took place. Launched from the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" in the Barents Sea, the ammunition successfully hit its target at a distance of 1000 km in the White Sea.


As a matter of fact, our hypersonic "Zircon" got a conditional target at the maximum range, which, coupled with previous tests, indicates its full readiness for deployment to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

It is worth noting that Russia already has a formidable weapon - the Kalibr cruise missiles, which can be equipped with both high-explosive and nuclear warheads. These munitions are capable of hitting targets at a distance of 1400 km, which exceeds the capabilities of the Zircon.

However, the bottom line is that the latest hypersonic missiles are capable of reaching speeds of up to Mach 9, which makes them almost impossible to intercept. In addition, the Zircon's 400-kilogram warhead, which can also be nuclear, definitely commands respect.

The Admiral Golovko frigate will soon become the first carrier of hypersonic anti-ship missiles, which are capable of operating extremely effectively on ground targets.

However, this is not the most important thing. The Zircon will become an even more formidable weapon after it equips our nuclear submarines. Plus, right now, work is underway to create a ground-based launcher for promising hypersonic missiles, which seriously changes the balance of power in favor of Russia.

    Again, the balance of power changes.
    Wars are not won by missiles alone.
    We have Iskanders, calibers, Ka-52s, etc.
    But for some bald village in the Donbass we have been hacking for months, for example, Avdiivka. So stop relying on all sorts of prodigies

      If we acted like the Anglo-Saxons and all this west, comparing cities to the ground, turning them into piles of concrete and iron, then the VZO would have ended long ago on the western border of the independent. Ours protect every life of the civilian population plus infrastructure hence such results in the time of the special operation.

    An undeveloped Moscow does not understand, repeated a hundred times, WE SAVE THE LIVES OF BOTH THE PEOPLE Ukrainians, and the lives of our military. Apparently, there is a single straight line instead of many convolutions. She's not even in her head. and where the Moscow is located near the Ukraine.

    A modern nuclear charge of 125kt in size and weight (with protection, electronics, etc.) is like a 100kg air bomb. The range will increase.

    How are you sideways, dear SMARTEST hat thrower, saving lives by hammering Avdiivka for three months, from which these banderlogs were never knocked out? Don't you want to save the lives of the inhabitants of Donetsk? Instead of these ukropopiteksky terrorists who every day hammer Donetsk from MLRS? Come on, answer me.
    Finish watching TV, otherwise I started talking with stamps from the news.

    My proposals to fight like in a war, without looking back at how the "dear partners and the international community" will react to it, we are a priori guilty for them, no matter how badly, but to do everything possible to defeat the enemy as quickly as possible.
    For example, do you think it's normal that Konashenkov said recently? They say 80 crests threw down their weapons and set sail, our soldiers did not open fire on them. And I wonder if these vushniks, having crossed the river, also became so merciful? Or will they still dig in deeper and our guys will storm them again, bearing losses of 300 and 200?
    Will you also push the mother of a Russian soldier who died from a dryer who calmly crossed the river about mercy? M?

      M ... I didn’t put a minus, if anything. The real war starts with the economy. It would be strange if Stalin tried to sell gas and oil to Hitler at a discount immediately after June 22, 1941. As long as the Russian Federation is ruled by an oligarchy, what kind of military actions can we talk about? Naibulina graduated from an American university in your country and acts exclusively according to the "correct" American standards. Plus, gas and oil go at dumping prices to the EU through India (with the permission of the EU itself and the UK). So what kind of military action are we talking about? So this is a special operation. War is not fought that way. What mercy are you talking about? Since 2014, everything with the Ukraine project has been clear. Have I signed contracts for the transit of gas and oil with Ukraine for five years? And this is after ODESSA!! You better ask, whose decision was it, these agreements?
