German media: Russian "Zircon" is dangerous for US aircraft carriers

73
The Zirkon missile system developed by Russia will be a real threat to American aircraft carriers, the German newspaper Stern writes. Article translation provided by RIA News


The article talks about the modernization of the Russian battlecruisers "Admiral Nakhimov" and "Peter the Great". Such ships, according to the author, were considered obsolete, but now they are planned to be equipped with modern C-500 anti-aircraft systems and Caliber cruise missiles.

German media: Russian "Zircon" is dangerous for US aircraft carriers


However, the main innovation of ships, the newspaper notes, will be a hypersonic cruise missile "Zircon" 3М22. It is capable of reaching speeds that are six times higher than the speed of sound (more than 2 km / s), and the range of action will be about 600 kilometers. With the help of this rocket, the Russian fleet will be able to create a serious threat to American aircraft carriers, not to mention the ships of other countries, writes Stern.

The article notes that an armed conflict between Moscow and Washington is unlikely, and Russia will use the upgraded battlecruisers to strengthen the image of the superpower and to "power projection" in different parts of the world. These ships will turn the oceans of the Earth into "dangerous waters" for American aircraft carriers, the author sums up.

The missile system with Zircon is the latest development of Russian designers. According to information from open sources, NPO Mashinostroyeniya is engaged in its creation.

Works on the project are closed. It is only known that the rocket will be able to accelerate to 5-10 Mach and reach targets at distances 300-500 kilometers. For comparison: now the Russian Navy is armed with anti-ship missiles with maximum speeds of Mach 2-2,5.

    in terms of importance and revolution, the zircon can be compared with the advent of the Maxim or Gatling machine gun. The situation on the theater of operations with the advent of these weapons is changing radically.

      If you take a deeper look at this issue, then the main enemy of American aircraft carriers is their own team: staffed by Mexicans, immigrants from Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa ..., now also transgenders, other perverts of all stripes, when the word "God save America" , just a stamp worn down to falsehood to receive the coveted citizenship - but to die for a star-striped flag, there are few!

          This did not happen to me! This is noted by Pentagon analysts, they just don’t really like to publicize this, about the level of decline in the moral and business and combat qualities of the American soldier, especially when meeting with the corresponding enemy! Moreover, they often take as a criterion the draft army who fought in Vietnam. Not on technical support, not on the level of training, but precisely because of a decrease in patriotism and, as a result, moral and psychological stability, in other words, why the hell would I die for America if I came to court to live!

          AVMs have been building 5-6 years. During this time, you can plan a hundred or two Zircons. True, there are problems with the carriers ... for now, let's hope. So, let's hope that in 2018 the 3K-22 will be adopted by the fleet. Then we'll see: is it or not !? bully

      The machine-building NGO developed the Bolide complex, a 3M15 rocket. But since 1990, not a word about the development. TTX missiles were impressive, Mach 4 and a range of 800 km.
      Coincidence? I don’t think so. This is purely my opinion that the project is the same, just rebranded, and modern technologies solved the problems that the developers faced in the 80-90th. Basically, they wanted to use this rocket on snowstorms as space-to-earth, but alas.

      This will be known only during the war, the USSR and Russia already have anti-ship missiles that exceed the speed of 2-2,5 Machs which were zircons of their time, but did not radically change anything.

      Of course not. Even if Zircon is not a bluff of the Russian Defense Ministry (there is such an assumption)
      , and you can create a mixture of BR and KR, the unit price will be huge and close
      to the price of ICBMs. Since it is necessary to develop: 1) the 1st stage rocket engine (booster),
      ramjet engine of the 2nd stage 2) means of navigation and guidance to the target.
      And combine all this and check in one product.
      "Maxim" - was a massive and inexpensive product (only thousands of rounds cost money).

      There are no closed topics. Learn to analyze information and read between the lines.

      When the media describes in detail which airbase received new aircraft, how many and what type.

      When, for the demonstration of any robot, ship or submarine (and any more or less significant achievement), the first persons of the state are invited, accompanied by cameras from all channels

      Stuffing information about superracketu - and then a deaf silence for a couple of years means that it is a fake.

      Why are they silent? Publishing even the appearance of the device will cause too many questions. And he will make it clear that there is no zircon. And so - you can keep the intrigue for a couple of years, and then everyone will forget. How to forget about the X-90 Koala, and there was a time promoting on all resources

      The only public photo-video footage of a real hypersonic device is Wave Wave. Seeing its characteristics and dimensions, we understand that it is impossible to get anything attributed to "Zircon" in its dimensions.

        I think this is not the problem. There was a rocket 3M15 rocket with TTX 4Maha and 800km range, they were already preparing for testing as the project in 90 just disappeared. Further in 2012 we hear about a miracle Zircon rocket with the same performance characteristics.

      The Americans have their own designs like the X-43A and X-51, and tests have been going on since 2000. If Zircon can only be carried by ships, then the Americans have them for aviation with much smaller sizes. Which is more dangerous: ten ships or a hundred aircraft with supersonic missiles?

        What is more dangerous: ten ships or a hundred aircraft with supersonic missiles?

        It depends on where and how you are going to use them. If the carriers cannot hide behind the IA, then the aircraft carriers may not fulfill the task ... Yes, and ships will not go far without an aviation umbrella. Therefore, most likely, Zircon will be the bare part of the B-RCC. A similar experience has already been in the history of the Navy - R-27K SLBM, D-5K complex ... I think the new is the well-forgotten old. In any case, UKKS - vertical lines, which means that the acceleration block for ramjet engine of the 3K-22 product will start from it with its head in the form of GZLA.
        By the way, as of 2011. organization of serial production of Zircon missiles was planned at Strela Production Center (Orenburg, East. - Annual Report, p. 15). This is "information for consideration." hi

As for the topic of the article, you might as well write that the Javelin is dangerous for tanks, and the Stinger for planes. As long as there is a need for aviation at sea, there will be aircraft carriers, there is nothing to replace them with.

    I suppose that they will bring it “to mind” in several modifications, and in a couple of years they will be massively put into service ... Although, of course, time does not play for us.

    Well, there is no smoke without fire. These rogues sniffed out something similar. Yes, and we need this kind of weapon to keep in check such a high-tech enemy as the United States. We need such a rocket, we really need it. You said it yourself.

    Even at a speed of 2 - 2,5 M, the aircraft carrier will be doomed. Several missiles at this speed and at minimum altitude are guaranteed to be destroyed or permanently incapacitated. Even the escort will not have time to cover itself.

    Less thrashing is necessary on this topic. The "partners" have already tensed and are thinking feverishly, they can come up with. Sin underestimate the enemy! When the missiles go into service, there will be an antidote. stupid bragging and browada, bring only harm.

    And no one is in awe. There is simply information and a minimum of additional information. And this is the best option. The enemy is trying to get more, starting to get nervous. But what you don’t have to do is to proclaim the Wunderwaffe weapons system in advance. Then really boasting and brooding brings harm.
    For example, our partners know that now we have two more “minerals” in the development process. One of them is the evolutionary development of the present “mineral,” and the other is revolutionary development. So let the partners think that it is.

    Quote: Viktor.12.71
    Quote: Andrey Yurievich
    in terms of importance and revolution, the zircon can be compared with the advent of the Maxim or Gatling machine gun. The situation on the theater of operations with the advent of these weapons is changing radically.

    The machine-building NGO developed the Bolide complex, a 3M15 rocket. But since 1990, not a word about the development. TTX missiles were impressive, Mach 4 and a range of 800 km.
    Coincidence? I don’t think so. This is purely my opinion that the project is the same, just rebranded, and modern technologies solved the problems that the developers faced in the 80-90th. Basically, they wanted to use this rocket on snowstorms as space-to-earth, but alas.

    The Bolide complex died without being born. It was intended to replace the "Volcanoes". And it is unlikely that the 80s rocket became the basis for the current Zircon project. At least different aerodynamics. And on the Buran system, there were no plans to launch rockets (multivolume)

    Why not missile battleships? ??
    Protection for the battleship does not reach, although it can be called a missile battleship, with a total length of a quarter kilometer and powerful armament. The diagram shows the Orlan project in proportions with the Second World War battleships. As for the topic of the article, you might as well write that the Javelin is dangerous for tanks, and the Stinger for planes. As long as there is a need for aviation at sea, there will be aircraft carriers, there is nothing to replace them with.

    I agree. The same American X-51 is just as dangerous for our ships as our Zircon for their aircraft carriers.

    "Dust in the eyes" let the modern media. It used to be
    only correspondents who knew the topic thoroughly and were admitted to it covered the topic. Now every “trickster” writes on any topic, posing as a “professional” in any topic. Personally, I draw conclusions for myself, only on the basis of official statements by representatives of the Moscow Region, and not on the "foam" of our or foreign media. hi

    To draw conclusions solely on the basis of official statements by the Moscow Region is also fraught. And what does the official statement mean? Shoigu's performance? And after all, even in this ministry many “storytellers” were written about, who give odds even to well-known ANALYTICS from the media

    Not at all. Read the studies of the same admiral Capitan. According to his calculations, about 8-10 X-22 or 3M45 Granite missiles are needed for destruction (long-term incapacitation). To destroy 11-12. So a few here can not do. Do not forget the oder, which will knock down part of the rockets. Not without reason for the destruction of the AUG we had planned a flight division

    It’s not enough to have excellent missiles against an aircraft carrier group ... The goal is to see and give target designation to a missile in flight. Tracking satellites will be neutralized immediately at "X" hour, and our reconnaissance planes will not let American carrier-based carrier-based fighters fly to the AUG. The Americans, on the contrary, have the opportunity to be the first to see our cruisers, thanks to their carrier-based AWACS ... In a naval battle, whoever sees the enemy first will be the first to fire a salvo at him. Without equivalent American AUGs, our aircraft carriers, which Russia does not have, joining the battle against American AUGs is tantamount to suicide ... Even if there are all kinds of Zircons on Russian ships ... That's all.

      Nice man! Well, you can’t do it right away: "Everything is gone, the client leaves, the plaster is removed, Everything is gone, chef!"
      Back in Soviet times, anti-aircraft missile divisions PLARK pr 949 / 949A were created in the Pacific Fleet and Northern Fleet. Our 885M will be armed with zircons, and, if they appear, Husky.
      And also it should be borne in mind the powerful electronic warfare and space, ZRLS and other supporting structure of the RF Armed Forces, not only the Navy.

            It is possible to sink an aug only by a combined and SIMULTANEOUS attack of aviation, surface and submarine forces. But to organize such an attack without seeing the enemy is almost impossible ... And you will have nothing to see, all calculations were made based on the satellite constellation of tracking and target designation. Now you can forget about it ... You will not have satellites. It remains to hope for the case. Are you so sure that fortune will turn to you, and not to the enemy ?!

          It is immediately obvious that you have nothing to do with the fleet.
          For example, a sound in a PZK can go around the globe. And on the 400-500 km, you can determine the DPC with a probability of 80%. Then, who told you that the geostacinary satellites will knock down the adversary by 100%? Or maybe you heard something about RTR? Or do you think that the rise of aviation occurs with complete silence and non-working RES ???
