Forbes: Zircon will provide an advantage for the Russian Navy over the US and British Navy


The promising Russian Zircon hypersonic missiles, with which Russia intends to arm its submarines, will provide the Russian Navy with an advantage over the US and UK Navy, as compared to subsonic Caliber, the new missiles have increased speed and are capable of hitting various targets, while remaining invulnerable to enemy air defenses.

The publication writes that the first launch of the hypersonic Zircon is scheduled for 2020 and will be made on board the latest atomic submarine of the K-561 type Kazan, which is already armed with subsonic and supersonic missiles. The speed of Zircon, the newspaper reports, is 8 of Mach numbers, and according to some experts, even higher than this. At the same time, Tomahawk cruise missiles, armed with U.S. and UK submarines, have a speed of only about Mach 0,75.

According to the author of the article, the Russian Navy, after the events in Syria, changed the doctrine of the use of high-precision weaponsadding to the priority objectives in the form of surface ships and enemy aircraft carriers to hit missiles and ground targets. The expert makes a prediction that Russia will rely on Zircon missiles and by 2030 in the Russian Navy there will be at least 8 submarines carrying these missiles, and by 2040 their number will reach 17.

    Of course, it will provide an advantage, but you need a lot more carriers, so that would be an advantage ..

      I read the last article by the same author in Forbes about the attack on Saudi oil facilities:

      Well, there are carriers, they only need to be upgraded to Zircon, but for now Granite will serve.
      Nuclear-powered submarine cruiser Omsk launched a cruise missile from the Pacific Ocean, said Nikolai Voskresensky, head of the information support department of the press service of the Eastern Military District for the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet).

      According to Voskresensky, “the Granit anti-ship cruise missile at a distance of about 350 kilometers successfully hit a target ship that imitated a conditional enemy surface ship”

      At the initial stage, it is enough to disable command posts, including reconnaissance, and perimeter military bases. Then from the army and navy there will remain a rabble, which itself will scatter.

    as compared with subsonic "Calibers", the new missiles have increased speed and are capable of hitting various targets, while remaining invulnerable to enemy air defense systems.


    So, it seems, and "calibers" have never been knocked down ... Although hypersound is generally a Thing!

    Well, I wouldn’t be so categorical that we will tear all zircons; we still need to leave the bays without a tail on the tail, and then the priest, and it’s not difficult to give anyone.

        This is how I went to bed with Forbes, which, with a clever look of something, has been broadcasting there for the 2040 year, when the fate of the smallest of Britain is in great question (Scotland and Northern Ireland threaten to leave its structure if Borka Johnson makes the same Brexit).

        But in every joke, as you know, there is a grain of a joke - any ballistic missile, by definition, is better than any cruise missile, since it can fly both in the atmosphere and beyond it at any speed. At the same time, an increase in the range and useful recoil of the ballistic missile structure is achieved by increasing the power of the combat load - for example, a domestic thermonuclear charge with a capacity of 250 Ktn weighs 140 kg, and therefore it may well be delivered to a distance of 2000 km using a ballistic missile in the dimensions of the "Caliber" complete with a starting solid propellant.

        The Kinzhal aircraft missile system includes an airborne Iskander-M ballistic missile with a warhead weighing 480 kg, which corresponds to a megaton-class nuclear charge, which has a more limited range of targets. In addition, Iskander-M with a diameter of 0,92 meters will not fit into a silo "Caliber" with a diameter of 0,533 meters.

      This is not news, but oil in the ears of our leadership: "The Russian Navy has a strategic advantage over the numerous submarine and surface fleets of the United States and NATO, it can no longer be developed." All these articles lead to the conclusion that Forbes, the National Interest in relation to us are just some kind of mouthpieces for disinformation.

    will provide Russia with some strategic advantage over the fleets of the United States and Great Britain.

    Either way, the West has been hysterical for the last five years against Russia - "backward and wild" ..
    It turns out they can’t catch up, despite the enormous stuffing of the military budget and other things .. hi
    We’re working further, men, and let our fifth column bark and fall into the paduha ..
    Our cause is just, Victory will be for a strong and independent Russia !!

    If this statement of the author is true, then why only some strategic advantage? This is already an overwhelming advantage - the main thing is to precisely direct the rocket is not the goal!

    Exactly. The main thing is to accurately direct the missiles at the target. And for this we need target designation, which we are currently limping on both legs.
    And "some" - because the West will not sit and watch how we do something there in the area of ​​hypersound. Work and they are underway, and over time, they may have hypersonic missiles on their boats

    For the first time, it has been launched for the last six years, at least twice a year.

    The phrase, of course, was written clumsily, but it means that in 2020 there will be a first launch from a carrier (PL), although it seems like a couple of months ago it was said that at the end of 2019 there will be a launch from a PL, and in 2020 - from a surface ship
