Clarified information about the beginning of state tests of hypersonic missiles "Zircon"

102

The information on the state tests of the Zircon hypersonic missiles has been clarified. These are the latest Russian anti-ship cruise missiles, which, according to open sources, are capable of speeds up to 8 M (the speed of sound).

In the information service RIA News citing a source in the defense industry complex (military-industrial complex), it is reported that specialists will switch to state tests of Zircon this month (July 2021). It is noted that this year, the launches of "Zircons" have not yet been carried out.



It is known that during the state tests, the Zircon missiles will be launched from the newest frigate of the Russian Navy, Admiral Gorshkov. This warship was put into service with the Russian Naval fleet three years ago (in 2018).

The above-mentioned information resource reports that during the beginning state tests, it is planned to fire at both sea and ground targets. Thus, the information that the Zircon missile system can be used against the enemy's coastal infrastructure is actually confirmed. Earlier it was reported that hypersonic missiles of this complex are capable of destroying enemy military bases even in a nuclear-free version, as well as sinking aircraft carriers and accompanying warships of a different type. At the same time, it is not yet said about the type of sea targets that are planned to be hit by the Zircon.

      I have heard that the British are itching to send again a destroyer with no holes in the Black Sea! So can you announce that the Zircon tests will be carried out in the Crimea? What to take from the media? And the people are interested and the British are pleased that they have not been forgotten ... what

          So after all, the Englishwoman from time immemorial crap, crap and will crap. Where do they get the bashli on the island? So they climb everywhere. They especially need our Siberia. Thatcherich generally proposed leaving 10 million of the population in the Union to service the pipe. The content of the rest of the population was considered by this reptile to be inexpedient. That is, both you and I would have been disposed of if these ghouls had succeeded. And on our TV, Britov weddings are broadcasted with aspiration.

        State tests of Zircon are to begin by the end of July. Will Severodvinsk perform launches from a submerged position, or will it be Kazan?

        A source in the military-industrial complex told RIA Novosti when state tests of the Russian Zircon hypersonic missiles start.

        According to him, they will begin in July.

        “By the end of this month, as part of the starting state tests of the shipborne missile system with the Zircon hypersonic missile, firing at land and sea targets from the frigate Admiral Gorshkov will be carried out,” the source said.

                        Zircon is a disposable short-lived item. On the contrary, an aircraft engine must have a large resource. Solution methods can be just the opposite.

            The same as on Onyx. When approaching a target, Zircon slows down
            to the usual supersonic sound, on which they work in the atmosphere of the seeker

                  Complete delirium - zircon is not included in the upper layers, it flies at a relatively low altitude, and such a braking mechanism does not work in this case.

                  This has nothing to do with the question of HOW zircon slows down, and how do you know it. Answers like "logic" are not accepted.
                  And the most important thing is that the time during which the zircon covered the distance to the training target indicates that there was no braking.

        The cost of export missiles of the 3M-54E type ranges from 28 to 426 thousand rubles, that is, from 300 to 36 thousand dollars, depending on the modification of the CD itself and the terms of the concluded trade agreement. Samples supplied to the armament of the Russian army in the usual version, cost less than $ 500 thousand apiece. When the cost of one CD of the base model BGM-109A "Tomahawk" is 1 million 450 thousand US dollars. Of the 59 missiles of this type launched from the Mediterranean Sea, the cost of a salvo of which amounted to 85 million 550 thousand US dollars, only 23 pieces reached their goals, which, in fact, did not fulfill the task set to completely disable the airfield of the Syrian government forces.

        Will slow down

        The fact of the matter is, when a decrease from 40 km in the atmosphere with an increase in the air temperature around the rocket to plasma, all communication stops and when reaching the target it is necessary to reduce the speed to the speed of a conventional cruise missile in order to use the seeker. Plasma is like that.

          How does the Ju-71 work then?
          .According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, a hypersonic gliding winged warhead can break through even promising missile defense systems by maneuvering in height and course. Its speed exceeds Mach 20 and it goes to the target like a fireball, the surface temperature of which is 1600-2000 degrees Celsius. Combat equipment can be a multiple individual targeting warhead and has a complex of means of overcoming antimissile defense. The combat unit is positioned as an intercontinental range.

          The combat equipment capacity of one Avangard hypersonic unit is from 800 kilotons to two megatons. Presumably, the block is 5-7 meters long. The Avangard body is made of composite materials, which provides resistance to aerodynamic heating of several thousand degrees and reliable protection from laser radiation.

          The warheads of the Avangard complex have their own engines and can maneuver along the trajectory both in direction and in speed. The control system allows you to quickly change the flight task and the distribution of targets before launch

              Nope.
              ... During the launch on October 6, the Zircon hypersonic missile was tested for the first time together with an unparalleled control system and an ultra-precise homing head, Izvestia found out. Previously, only individual units and components of the product were tested. The missile covered 450 km in 4,5 minutes, which, according to experts, leaves the enemy only a fraction of a second to defeat it. The successful test of the Zircon is a great event not only for the Russian Armed Forces, but for the entire country, President Vladimir Putin noted during a meeting with Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov.


              ... In particular, according to Izvestia, the rocket for the first time used an unparalleled control system and a homing head. The latter gives the product the highest accuracy with which it can hit even miniature targets.

              According to the sources, during this test launch, the rocket performed the most difficult maneuvers on the way to the target. This makes the trajectory of its flight unpredictable, and the ammunition itself is invulnerable to interception.


              Apparently, the ammunition uses a system of post-launch rotation and orientation in space, similar to a similar system of the Onyx anti-ship cruise missile developed by the same NPO Mashinostroyenia. The system of solid-propellant attitude control engines turns the product on a course to the target, brings it to a horizontal position, removes and takes away the fairing. After that, the marching stage of the solid-propellant first stage of the rocket is launched.

              The first stage of "Zircon" is also unusual and includes the starting part of the engine, which ensures the exit of the rocket from the launcher, passage through the water column during an underwater launch or takeoff to a safe height above the carrier ship. The marching part of the solid-propellant launch stage provides the product with acceleration to hypersonic speed.

              After separation of the accelerating first stage, the cruise speed is maintained by a ramjet engine. In this configuration, the rocket can begin to maneuver through the atmosphere using aerodynamic surfaces. When performing maneuvers at hypersonic speed, the Zircon becomes invulnerable to modern air defense systems. This makes the missile a unique anti-ship weapon or a breakthrough system for air defense and missile defense.

                The zircon maneuvering on hypersound is programmable, but nothing is said about the speed using the seeker. And maybe this will be the Achilles heel of this project. No plasma transparency during hypersound. And the visibility of the object is the principle of the homing head.

        The intrigue is, what is the speed of the zircon in the final phase of the flight. It is difficult to imagine that a rocket is looking for a target at 8M because of the plasma.

        Maybe at the final distance of the flight, and not the section, or you write from the dacha laughing ? That is, in your opinion, since hypersonic speed and plasma, the missile will not be able to find the target?

        ... Will it slow down or have to receive a tip from other sources?

        What is the point of making a hypersonic missile if, according to your words, it will slow down on the final leg of the flight?

        ... The first outstanding characteristic is the flight speed of the Zircon, it reaches Mach 9, that is, nine times the speed of sound. In addition, the rocket maneuvers during flight. The tremendous speed and maneuvering in flight make it impossible to intercept the existing and future missile defense and air defense systems.

        The second outstanding characteristic of the Zircon missile is its range. It is over 1000 kilometers long. Thus, the Russian hypersonic missile is a serious obstacle to the implementation of the American strategy of a rapid global strike. The Zircon's flight range makes it possible to restrain a potential enemy at a great distance, posing a threat to its carriers of sea-based cruise missiles, which are the main striking element of this strategy.

        In addition, the Zircon's target range of more than 1000 kilometers practically excludes the use of its carrier aircraft by the United States, the combat radius of which from the nuclear aircraft carrier is up to 800 kilometers.

          Plasma interferes with fuels and lubricants, but communication with external sources of target designation is possible. It would be possible to come up with a salvo, where the target designator first flies out, followed by zircons, with a calculation where the pointer illuminates the targets and issues signals to the zircons that overtook it.

                  And what did I write "subsonic"? I wrote transonic.
                  I'm talking about the guidance system, is it really the same thing used on hypersound as when at a speed, let's say 1,2 M.

        For the Saxons, these tubs are very useful, for very specific individuals. Capitalism however. Everyone earns as best they can. Someone plows-sows-reaps-bakes bread, and someone saws the budget, takes over the money collected from those who plow-sow. And at one time the English tubs allowed to dramatically increase the number of plundered "plowmen".
        Our tubs are supposed to protect us from such a situation. True, this did not help the USSR. And now we continue to pay tribute to London-New York.

      Information has been clarified that state tests will begin in July. That's all! And nothing else. Nothing about the rocket. The ramjet engine has been known for a long time. But the control of the apparatus at such speeds in a cocoon of ionized air, which does not facilitate the passage of the radio signal, is a very interesting problem. The Americans created the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS). This is a network of special satellites and ground stations for stable communication with spacecraft (including when entering the atmosphere. Is this part of the part solved successfully? It is necessary to look at it. This is a big job. Was it done? Or decided somehow in an original way? to control the rocket, and to position it, to find and lock the target. So I stock up on popcorn. Hope it will not be the same as with Poseidon.
