The US is concerned about Russia's plans to deploy Zircons in the Pacific

The United States expresses its strong concern at the ongoing tests in Russia of the promising Zircon hypersonic missile. In addition, Washington is concerned about possible plans to deploy Zircons and Caliber in the Pacific.


According to the publication, Russia is testing a promising hypersonic Zircon missile and will soon take it into service. Of particular concern in Washington are Russia's possible plans to deploy these missiles, as well as Caliber missile systems in the Pacific. According to the publication, this will allow Russia to significantly strengthen its influence there and put an end to the dominance of the American state.

The publication writes that the latest Zircon hypersonic missile can be located in the same launchers as the Caliber or Onyx missiles already in service with the Navy. This means that even without commissioning new ships, Russia can provide new missiles to existing ones.

Despite the fact that the characteristics and capabilities of the Zircon are still classified, the United States found out that a missile, when hit in even a large military ship at hypersonic speed, literally “cuts it into two parts,” which naturally leads to catastrophic damage and total destruction warship

The high maneuverability of the Zircon and modern countermeasures of electronic warfare make this missile practically inaccessible for interception even by the most advanced anti-ballistic defense systems in service around the world. Moreover, even the 3 Mach speed creates a serious problem for the AEGIS missile defense system deployed on the destroyers and cruisers of the United States and its allies. This is enough to tear apart large warships in half and incapacitate an aircraft carrier with one successful hit

- writes the edition.

Another reason for the headache of the American military is the fact of the possible sale of these missiles or the transfer of technology for their creation by Russia to its ally - China.

        There is another reason for concern. The American doctrine of the translation of forces through strike aircraft carrier groups is questionable. True, they still have JAASM-ER.
        The first successful test of the Zircon anti-ship missile was officially announced in May 2017. Then, as reported, the rocket reached eight speeds of sound. If the estimated flight range of 1000 kilometers is reached, then the whole American doctrine of the global translation of its forces through strike aircraft carrier groups is in question. The range of US carrier-based aviation with a refueling in the air is about 800 kilometers. It turns out that the carrier strike group simply will not be able to approach the territory protected by the Zircons to the range of its strike.

          It’s understandable, but even the Brahmos can well sink American aircraft carriers, and by the way, the Chinese have stolen the Brahmos production technology from the Indians and have now made copies of themselves and threaten the Americans in the Indian and Pacific Ocean ...

          Carrier strike groups are a dying nature.
          Their current status can be compared with the role of the pre-dreadnought battleship squadrons in the First World War.

      This is Putin said. Lavrov duplicated. But this did not concern all negotiations on any missiles, but specifically on the INF Treaty, such as “no and no trial,” get and sign. The mattresses wanted to make such a whirlwind so that in order to save the treaty we would put a little pressure on China, they say let's smoke a topic for three, but China said "I don't smoke", and we said that we also quit smoking, now the Americans smoke alone bamboo and "calm down."

        Clear business is the decision of the highest ru.va. Lavrov is the head of the Foreign Ministry, this does not mean that he is simply relaying decisions on foreign issues and security. Lavrov, so to speak, is one of the most valuable and authoritative advisers in the field of his professional activity. And this statement does not lie in a narrow sphere. After all, it was said that we will no longer seek compromises in this matter, namely in the issue of deploying missiles along our borders. The answer will and will not be quantitative but qualitative.

        And what is the matter to you in / on the outskirts, what is the speed of the Zircon - up to 5M or over 5M? For you, he still remains "cartoons" (until he bites his ass).

        A few years ago, an interview was published with the Russian chief designer - the developer of Soviet supersonic cruise missiles, where he declared the impossibility of hypersonic ramjet. Over the past years, information has been published on the Internet about innovative Russian technology for injecting water into a hypersonic ramjet combustion chamber in order to reduce the air flow rate to subsonic speed, stabilize the combustion regime and ensure complete combustion of the fuel. Than I am guided at the moment.
