British press: "Putin's hypersonic missiles can reach the United States in a few minutes"

78

Putin's new Zircon hypersonic missiles can reach the United States in just a few minutes. With such weapons, the Russian president strikes at the bull's-eye.


British newspaper Daily Express writes about it.

This is how the British media reacted to the successful completion of four test launches of Zircon hypersonic missiles from the frigate Admiral Gorshkov last year. There they mark the exact hits on the target during each launch.

London is concerned that Russia will soon adopt the Zircons, China also has a promising DF-17 hypersonic missile, and the United States is still far behind its main potential adversaries.

The Russian military carried out missile launches in the Arctic, striking targets in the area of ​​the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. During the tests of the Zircon missiles, capable of flying at a speed of almost 10 thousand km / h, access to ships and vessels not participating in the exercises was prohibited in significant parts of the Kara and Barents Seas.

According to the British, Moscow plans to launch these weapons into production as early as 2022.

Sources in the Russian defense industry told the agency RIA Newsthat missile launches are planned for June from the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov". At the same time, one of them does not exclude that they will shoot "Zircons".

    There is nothing to stop Zircon and Britain, and the same goes for.

      AR - Of course, Yerevan.
      - How many atomic bombs are needed to destroy Yerevan?
      AR - Tbilisi is also a beautiful city.

    The Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN walks back and forth along the corridor and mutters under his breath: "Where are five more? .." The Permanent Representative of Great Britain approaches him and asks: "What's the matter, colleague?" Ours replies to him: "You see, according to the standard for the whole of Great Britain, there are five warheads, and there are ten of them in a rocket. Where are five more?"

        For England, indeed, at the beginning of the 60s of the last century, 5 warheads were relied on.
        But with a capacity of 5 Mt.
        Khrushchev was then surprised - "Why so few?" ...
        ... but the Chief of the General Staff explained that this was enough for England.
        That's where the anecdote comes from - about 5 extra warheads.

    "Zircon" or 3M22 - Russian hypersonic anti-ship cruise missiledeveloped by NPO Mashinostroyenia.
    Maximum range - over 500 km

    What does America have to do with it? It is necessary to approach the shore in order to shoot on land.

    Hypersonic weapons are trending now! But "hypersound" "hypersound" strife! Only if possible "keep" the hypersonic speed: a) at the initial, middle, terminal sections of the combat flight trajectory; b) the initial, middle sections of the combat trajectory ...; c) at the terminal section of the combat trajectory ... hypersonic missiles can be "divided" into 3 groups! We need already now the classification definitions of these groups! But, in my opinion, they do not exist yet, which makes it difficult to operate with different concepts of varieties of hypersonic weapons!

      Hypersound is the speed of flight, but how one is achieved is unimportant. There is a hypersound fast hypersound and the so-called "return speed" over 28 Machs.

    What are these minutes - seconds. If you fly over the North Pole, it is even closer there.
    The main thing is that the United States does not succeed in creating at least something like that.

    I didn’t understand anything. An article again by some Briton, who probably heard about Zircon himself recently, but did not understand anything and hop a reprint on VO ...
