It is reported plans to increase the pace of testing a hypersonic rocket "Zircon"


Intentions to accelerate hypersonic test pace reported weapons in Russia. We are talking about the hypersonic anti-ship missile "Zircon" and its launches from marine carriers. At the moment, tests are carried out on board the frigate of the Russian Navy Admiral Gorshkov. Earlier it was reported that this year it is planned to start testing from the side of the submarine.


According to the TASS news agency, the pace of testing the hypersonic Zircon will increase.

The reports indicate that firing from the submarine of Project 885 Ash-tree will be carried out in parallel with tests on surface carriers. In this case, a surface carrier is understood as the aforementioned frigate of project 22350 Admiral Gorshkov, which went into operation of the Naval fleet countries in 2018.

Earlier it became known about a specific submarine, which will act as a test “platform” for hypersonic “Zircon”. This is the submarine Severodvinsk, related to the 885th project.

The exact timing of the tests of Zircon from the board of Severodvinsk is not yet known, but it is known that the submarine will conduct test firing in the surface position.

The first test launch of the Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missile at sea was carried out at the beginning of the year. By the end of the year, it is planned to carry out at least three test launches from the Admiral Gorshkov.

    You can only wish success!
    Well, work on expanding the list of application platforms. (Not only the fleet, but also aviation and ground forces).
    Another scaling of the design itself (if / by how much is real).
    Another area of ​​application is the creation of hypersonic targets for air defense.

      I think this should be done not only with a rocket. The striking pace should be generally in the development of the country. Especially in the economic sector. That would not wait for decades.

        All the same, the development of the scramjet is complicated and not as fast as we would like, and when it is mastered, we can think about the shocking pace of production.
        The key technology of the Zircon rocket is its hypersonic ramjet engine. The scramjet engine is a direct descendant of ramjet engines that have been widely used in the past. In a ramjet engine, before entering the combustion chamber through the inlet channel, the supersonic flow is reduced to subsonic speed and compressed, and then ignited and thrown out with the fuel into the combustion chamber, thereby setting the rocket in motion. The speed of the rocket can reach 5 to 6 Machs. In a supersonic ramjet engine, a supersonic stream is compressed to a lower supersonic speed in the inlet channel, then mixed with fuel in the combustion chamber, then ignited and thrown away, accelerating the rocket. This type of engine usually uses hydrocarbon fuel or liquid rocket fuel, as it completely burns out in a supersonic stream and produces more traction, increasing the speed of the rocket to 6 to 25 Machs.

        Difficulties in research and development of scramjet engines are encountered worldwide. In the design of the X-51 hypersonic missile, the United States also used this type of engine. But due to serious technical difficulties, the project was closed at one time. Thus, thanks to its key technology, the Zircon rocket is the first hypersonic missile in the world using a hypersonic ramjet engine.

      Well, work on expanding the list of application platforms.

      The fleet has a universal launcher, which is suitable for Kilibram and Onyxes and Zircons. Apparently, on those surface and underwater carriers where there is no such launcher, they will install it as part of the modernization. And most likely, the Bastion coastal complex will undergo modernization under this anti-ship missile system.

        There are no secrets now ... In the information world they are simply impossible.
        But in this you are deeply mistaken. The Main Order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Instruction for civil enterprises-institutions are in force, and systematic checks are carried out on their implementation. Regarding the "information world" - before, even before the Internet, intelligence services of all countries also collected information from open sources. But this was only as an addition to the basic forms and methods of work of the special services.

          The orders and instructions referred to are roughly the same as the current law in York, which allows you to shoot a Scotsman from a bow at a meeting.
          Previously, information from open sources was really an additional form for spies, but now it is the only source that is used only as an agent for the development of budget funds according to the report.

    Two years have passed since the public announcement of miraculous breakthrough achievements in military construction. It was also said that a breakthrough allows you to live peacefully for several decades, none of our potential partners will be able to achieve this level. However, only 2 passed! years and in the United States already successfully tested several samples of hypersonic weapons. China is not far behind. Well, what about Russia? Cit. "... the pace of testing the hypersonic Zircon will increase." What do we have today? Planning a modified Soviet glider and the same Iskander-Dagger.
    Given the scientific and technological potential of the United States, there is no doubt that the tests of hypersonic systems will be completed as soon as possible and put into mass production. In this they are great masters.
    What did you end up with? Will we have an advantage in this area? Will Russia's strategic security grow or will we again be embroiled in a new arms race, but in the hypersonic field? And can a weak, exhausted by crises <our country worthily confront these challenges. Here are the questions that I would like to receive answers to.

      and in the USA, several samples of hypersonic weapons are already being tested in the most successful way.

      Not several samples, but one sample of the hypersonic unit passed the test, according to the results of which it will be further developed, since this success is only the first step in a long journey of a whole series of tests. Vanguard).
      Well, what about Russia? Cit. "... the pace of testing the hypersonic Zircon will increase."

      Zircon is the world's first successfully tested hypersonic cruise missile with a hypersonic ramjet engine. At one time the United States experienced something similar (X-51), but due to technological problems that could not be solved, the project was curtailed.
      What do we have today? Planning a modified Soviet glider and the same Iskander-Dagger.

      The United States does not even have this today. In the United States, they are just now trying to create their analogues of these two systems. A glider (hypersonic unit), about the tests of which you are talking about, and an analog of the Dagger, which will be tested from the B-52.
      Given the scientific and technological potential of the United States, there is no doubt that the tests of hypersonic systems will be completed as soon as possible and put into mass production. In this they are great masters.

      Overly optimistic. Work has just begun. Years will pass. Even kittens will not be born quickly.

    It is reported plans to increase the pace of testing a hypersonic rocket "Zircon"

    What good news in the morning! Plans have already been ramped up. And as you know, "life without a plan is wasted life" laughing . Only for some reason, a headline saying that to speed up the tests, the state increases their funding by ... the amount of million rubles, would look more encouraging, or something. Plans to build up and report on building up are the business of effective managers, but it’s not for them to work hard.

      By time, they should have tested Zircon from 885M Kazan, but the delivery of the submarine was delayed, so in order to keep up with the test schedule, it was decided to conduct Zircon tests from 885 Severodvinsk, so to speak, to increase the pace of Zircon tests relative to the current test pace. What does the money have to do with it, if in Severodvinsk the same UKKS (universal ship firing complex) from which the rocket is tested, and Zircon at the final stage of the tests?

    Another area of ​​application is the creation of hypersonic targets for air defense.

    Scaling is not possible. Almighty math versus. The strength of any object (person, jet engine) depends on the cross-sectional area of ​​the muscle. (nozzle). And these are square units. The mass of this object - a person, an engine - cubic units. With increasing size, cubes grow faster than squares. Therefore, a person can lift a load no more than his own weight, and an ant is a hundredfold larger. We’ll double the size of the rocket, and it, without processing, the main one, will not be able to fly anywhere. The law of square cubes will not allow.
