The frigate Admiral Gorshkov is being prepared for testing the hypersonic Zircon

The lead frigate of project 22350 Admiral Gorshkov, aimed at scheduled maintenance, in addition to routine maintenance, will load the Zircon hypersonic missile for the next test firing. This was reported by TASS with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.


According to the source, the frigate went to the Belomorsk base, where scheduled maintenance and loading of Zircon will be carried out. After the completion of work, the ship will go to the sea ranges of the North fleet in the White Sea, where the next launch of a hypersonic missile will be carried out. The exact date of the test is not reported, preliminary plans - April - May.

The frigate Admiral Gorshkov went to the White Sea Naval Base to carry out a number of routine maintenance, as well as loading the Zircon missile into the launcher. The second test firing hypersonic missile will be performed from the ship in April - May

- the agency leads the words of the source.

Recall that the first tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile from the surface ship became known at the end of February this year, when news agencies reported the launch of Zircon from the frigate Admiral Gorshkov at one of the Northern Fleet’s naval ranges in the Barents Sea. It was reported that a rocket launched from a ship overcame more than 500 km and hit a target located on the shore. It was clarified that the first launch was carried out in January.

"Admiral Gorshkov" is the lead frigate of project 22350. It is intended for combat operations in the far and near sea zones, as well as for participation in solving problems in the ocean zone. The ship's displacement is about 4500 tons, the longest is about 130 m, the largest is more than 16 m. Cruising range - more than 4000 miles, seaworthiness - without restrictions.

Built at the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg, became part of the Northern Fleet in July 2018.

Armament: 130-mm A-192 artillery mount, Redut anti-aircraft missile system, UKSK 3S14 universal launcher for 16 Caliber or Onyx anti-ship missiles, Paket-NK anti-submarine system, Ka-27 anti-submarine helicopter.

    Zircon is already flying! Well, it remains carriers to build and build.

      he has been flying for a long time, but the point was that he could be controlled at the speed that he is developing. and even old ships can become carriers, provided that they install the appropriate equipment for target designation and missile control.

            Then you can (although unlikely) to distinguish in the text "equipment for target designation and missile control" (PUS, BIUS, KASUB)) from the universal ship launch complex (UKSK), which on old ships (956, 1135, 1164, 1144), capable of carrying 3M22 spawn did not happen.
            And the second. Baby, don't be ham to strangers uncles. It is uncultured and unhealthy.

      In general, do not care, except for a sufficient number of "Zircons" in the Russian Navy. I will share with you my view on the sale of the latest weapons abroad.
      The receipt of currency precisely from the sale of the latest weapons produced in the country does not matter for the production of Russian weapons from Russian components and components, the price of which is determined in rubles. And the victors in battles and wars were not only strong-willed warriors, but also warriors, whose weapons were better than the enemy ...
      So we were brought up. So we were taught. Therefore, the VD countries armed with the best examples of Soviet weapons, which, as time has shown, have surrendered all military secrets and developments with a “clear conscience” to our potential opponents ...

        Yuri Vasilyevich, let's not remember the VD countries, but just count how many S-400s, Su-35s were sold abroad, and how many arrived in the RF Armed Forces. And they didn’t find a replacement for the papers with portraits of American presidents. And as far as import substitution is concerned, the picture doesn’t so rosy as we are painted.

        ========
        Oooo, how "everything is running" ..... It seems that with your economy and finances, Yuri Vasilyevich is "not very" ..... I will try to explain:
        1. Pricing problem. For deliveries to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the price is based on the cost of production, whereas, for export, the price is based on the cost of the nearest foreign analogues. And since the United States, the European Union, Israel and China are the largest exporters of weapons (except for the Russian Federation), it is clear that Western analogues of Russian technology are MUCH MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE than Russian analogues. This means that the products of the Russian defense industry can also be exported at a much higher rate of return (“price wraps”). And this means that for the needs of its own municipal unit, a manufacturer with export contracts can deliver CHEAPER - even to “cost” or even at a loss (he will “beat” the profit on the development of production on export supplies, which means that for the same money can be purchased for yourself - MORE!
        2. The problem of mass production. It is a well-known fact - the larger the series, the lower the unit cost of production (fixed costs - are transferred (divided) to a larger number of units produced) ....
        You think the Yankees are vainly "pulling in" their newest F-35 to everyone they can? If it weren’t for this, the price of this machine would have been “impossibly” even for a crazy American budget!
        PS I ask you not to be offended, just such naive reasoning annoys me a little (although this is bad!). hi
        PPS About ATS countries. Everything seems to be true ... But you don’t take into account how MUCH really serious secrets "flowed" into the dashing 90s from the "fraternal union republics", and from Russia - also! Then he watched as he could for all this “bacchanalia” and “the hair stood on end”! Yes, for this-not only under Stalin, but under Brezhnev Shot !!!

      So far .. yes .. But there, in our NSR, the Nakhimov’s modernization is completed, in which Pu Granita are replaced by 3M14 .. the number is too lazy to clarify, but this is a few dozen missiles .. Just in time ... at the time the Zircon cruiser began testing will be combatants ..

        Zircon can be launched from different platforms.
        Alexei Leonkov in an interview with 360 explained that for Zircon there is no difference which platform to launch from. The main thing is target designation: if it is accurate, then the rocket will fly accordingly.

        It makes no difference [where to place]. This is a platform system, that is, it can be on air carriers, marine (surface, underwater execution) and ground-based coastal defense complexes

    It turned out to be a good frigate, but missile weapons are not enough. For a long hike, both anti-submarine torpedoes and anti-ship and anti-ship missiles capable of hitting ground targets will be needed in the ammunition and they need a lot to have an effect.

    Here 32 PUs would be great, I did not ship, but there seems to be a place next to the existing 16 PUs. In order not to do that ?!

    And for the distant sea zone all the same, Project 22350M is needed under 7000-8000 displacement.

    In general, this is already obvious to everyone and it seems that we are moving in that direction, which cannot but rejoice.

      1. For 4,5 Kt, a quite adequate number of "trunks", because in addition to weapons, you also need a "living space" for the crew. There are no lyumiks there, and if you make everyone "herrings in a barrel" - do not expect good: we have strong people, but not iron people.
      2. On the 22350M with a displacement of 7-7,5 Kt there will be (according to various sources) about 24-48 cells. But it will already be "universal" ships. (on the ship Embedded boards of new buildings are already stuffing the "MULTI-PURPOSE" ship of the project ...)
      3. Everything depends on the weight and overall characteristics of the weapon. We can "shrink" - there will be more room for beater. Science and industry do not stand still. Therefore, there is confidence that the weapon will continue to improve, up to the "mega-super-duper" of no analogues !!! laughing

    In the short term, unlikely. In addition, the meaning of conducting test launches from a warship is not entirely clear. For this, there have always been experimental ships (PL), from which test launches were carried out. After all, the launch of Zircon from Gorshkov was the first from a surface ship. And if something happened (God forbid), something would have suffered primarily a warship.

    Quote: Doccor18
    Zircon is already flying! Well, it remains carriers to build and build.

    So far, this was the first launch from a surface ship. First you need to work out the entire test program, both with the NK and the submarines, and then only say that the Zircon flies.

      Your concerns are understandable ... But there are at least 2 reasons why we went along the road "from a warship":
      1. The desire to save money on the testing base. There are examples - the R-30 immediately began to shoot from the carrier, without bothering with the underwater test bench.
      2. Start 3M22 "mortar". PAD throws the product 25-30 m up, powder dvigla deploy it on the bearing of the firing at the time of launch of the marshavik. And here there may be a semi-ballistic trajectory (at least a high B-14), but we do not know this for obvious reasons.
      3. TIME !!! Which to spare. States need TODAY to "wipe their nose" with a swab of liquid ammonia so that bad thoughts (even for a while!) From the birdhouse near the hawks disappear.
      Yes, of course there is a risk ...
      Even at the stand in Nenox on 8.08.2019/8/XNUMX, a disaster occurred that claimed the lives of XNUMX scientists at the Nobilevka laureate level. And what is there to deny - they take risks!
      But we will keep our fists clenched, hoping for a happy test result and the speedy adoption of this weapon of the 21st century by the Navy.
      IMHO.

        There is a good chance that the real Zircon and its media image are very different. In an attempt to create a sort of analogue of SDI.
