Data appeared on the test launch period of a sea-based Zircon hypersonic missile

44

The first test launch of the Zircon hypersonic missile this year will be made from the side of a warship. Like last year, it will be the frigate Admiral Gorshkov.


He shared this information with reporters from the RIA news agency. News source related to the defense industry.

He said that this event will happen in the spring of 2020. Last year’s launch was the very first test of a sea-based Zircon hypersonic missile. Prior to this, such missiles were launched only from the coastal stand.

Spring launch on board the latest test ship weapons will not be limited and will be continued.

The frigate Admiral Gorshkov is the lead warship of the Project 22350 series.

Sea-based Zircon hypersonic missiles are capable of speeds of 9 Machs. In other words, it is 9 times the speed of sound. At the same time, the rocket is capable of covering a distance of 9 thousand kilometers. At the end of the tests, surface ships and submarines of the Russian Navy will be equipped with new hypersonic weapons fleet.

Earlier, the United States Department of Defense recognized that they are powerless against hypersonic weapons of the Russian Federation.

      And why is it surprising. After a year, our scribblers may not write such a thing. For example, both the speed of 20 max and the flight range is not limited.

          Zircon is placed in the UKKS mine ... 3m14

          VIKA draws "zircon" 8-10 m long. And he makes a postscript.
          (based on the dimensions of the 3S14 launcher and missiles also launched from it)

          The length of the "club" is 12,1 m.
          The jester knows where the truth is. The weapon is secret. Therefore, we will not know the parameters soon.

              And how much does the X-101 weigh, in which the range is two times less than the distance of the Mace, is also half that of the Mace? Zircon is not a BR, but a hypersonic KP. The X-101 is a subsonic KP and should not be confused with wet and warm.

            There are several officially declared figures for the maximum range of this missile - from 400 km. (In the first statements, because it was at this range that they were launched), to "over 1000 km." from the mouth of the president, who is still the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and must know this subject. And he repeated this figure several times.
            So, we will proceed from the officially declared characteristics, in which many doubt it.

        Warrior, did you decide to troll the young men? lol Right now they will build a whole theory like "Zircon" from the UKSK on Mach 9, but it will give up on 9 km fellow .
        Okay, the journalist is young \ stupid or sealed up, ok, the editorial office was worried because of the coronovirus - it overlooked request ... but then there was a whole discussion about Zircon's hyperpowers. And yet yesterday more than 400 - 500 km. almost no one gave him range ...
        WHAT A FAITH TO THE PRINT WORD! good

      Maybe it means about 9 tons km / h, that is, a speed corresponding to 9 MAX. 1MAX somewhere 1040 km / h at low altitude. 9 MAX = 9360 km / h at low altitude or 4680 km in half an hour or 2340 km in 15 minutes or 780 km in 5 minutes at low altitude. Interestingly, what is the duration of the Zircon flight? this depends on the range of the lesion.

        at low altitude

        You saddened me, because it seems that the speed of sound correctly led - for the STRATOSPHERE. At the mere thought of the possibility of flying at such speeds at a LOW altitude ... I shuddered.
        As far as I know, the Zircon echelon is within 30 - 40 km.
        And below it will burn. Though you sculpt it from zirconium, at least from rhenium.
        But the fact that the author wanted speed in km \ h. translate, but see distracted ... you successfully guessed it. yes good

    Zircon-shmyrcon, all the same, Russia and America only together have accumulated so many nuclear weapons that it will be enough to destroy the earth several times and they will never fight with this "good".
    But when they start to fight somewhere, then without the usual machine gun, RPG and mortar, they still do not fight, even after a nuclear strike the territory needs to be cleaned up and without conventional and reliable weapons in any way.

          Information from various sources skips. Here's a discussion on Zircon from American Popular Mechanics for example.
          The gigantic missile speed makes it difficult to intercept, mainly because it leaves the enemy no time to make a decision. After the start "Zircon" rises to a height of about 30 kilometers and then follows to the target. At a speed of Mach 8, the rocket travels 160 kilometers per minute. The powerful SPY-1 radar of the Aegis air defense system - for example, the American cruisers of the Ticonderoga type are equipped with it - is able to detect a threat at a distance of about 300 kilometers - provided the missile flies high. In this case, the cruiser crew has two minutes to organize the interception.
          If the Zircon, like other Russian anti-ship missiles, after reaching cruising speed drops to an extremely low altitude, the surface ship will detect it at a distance of only 50 kilometers. And the crew will have less than 20 seconds to take action, which is clearly not enough.
