The defense industry has clarified the timing of the start of state tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile

21

The first surface launch of Zircon hypersonic missiles from the frigate Admiral Gorshkov in 2021 will take place in early summer as part of state tests.


It is reported RIA News citing two sources in the defense industry.

According to one of the sources, the first Zircon launch this year will take place in early summer, which will mean the beginning of state tests of the rocket. Flight design tests from a surface carrier were completed last year; in 2021, Zircon launches from a surface carrier were not carried out.

Flight design tests from the Gorshkov were completed with the third launch of the Zircon rocket in November last year, since that moment the Zircon firing from the frigate has not yet been carried out. The next shooting from the side of the ship should take place in early summer.

- he said.

The second source confirmed the start of state tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile from a surface launch vehicle in early summer, adding that it is possible that missiles can be fired in a salvo.

Last week it was reported that the Admiral Gorshkov went out to the Barents Sea to fire the hypersonic Zircon, thus completing the stage of flight design tests. The Ministry of Defense clarified that the frigate did fire at one of the sea ranges, but not with Zircon, but with Onyx, hitting a ground target. At the same time, Admiral Gorshkov will continue to participate in the hypersonic weapons test program together with the Severodvinsk submarine.

    The more reports about Zircon, the less often it is called RCC.

      I also noted this fact.
      Is it possible that a universal land-sea vehicle has appeared, but I am more inclined to believe that it is an anti-aircraft vehicle, but the only question is how relevant such a missile is.

        That is, the presence of such missiles by the very fact of their existence forces the enemy to stay away from our shores. What's the problem?

          The problem is that in the current situation, today the Yankes have no hyper, and exactly by the state acceptance of our UDC, these American hyper will be able to do the same as ours.
          We'll have to look for an eternal parking lot for the new UDC.

            Do you seriously think that in the event of a global mix with the United States, they will have any meaning at all? How tired of explaining to "experts" that these are ships for the "cold war".

            They issue such articles every year, but things are still there, in the sense that no one refuses aircraft carriers.

              For cold, for hot, but either in Kerch, or in Feodosia, a couple of such hippos have already been laid, only here is where to find such a dolbak so that these "sea goals" agree to accept, pay and apply

                  Is this the one that cannot be completed for 15 years and which every 3 months becomes a dock for six months? Thank you, don't: have such a charm for the Fu-35.

    But what about this news from 26.03. Is it really a fake? belay

    The LKI "Zircon" with the use of the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" has been successfully completed. Four launches have been completed. All missiles hit the "peg"

        Just read carefully. LCI and GOS are different tests. Each stage takes place after passing the previous one with various changes that occur as a result of them .. The final product is already flying on the state, which is going to be adopted.
