British edition: Russia's deployment of Zircon hypersonic missiles will disrupt NATO's maritime defense system

Armament of naval ships fleet Russia's Zircon hypersonic missiles will lead to a breakthrough in the event of a conflict of the naval defense of the North Atlantic Alliance. The British edition of Express writes about this, analyzing the topic of modernizing the Russian armed forces, which is unpleasant for the West.


As you know, Zircon hypersonic missiles are capable of hitting targets at a distance of thousands of kilometers. That is, countries such as Great Britain, located quite far from Russia, are defenseless before them.

Mark Almond, director of the Institute for Crisis Studies, believes that such developments by Russia have allowed Moscow to prevent the West's possible plans for more active intervention in the conflict in Ukraine. Precisely fearing a powerful Russian weaponsThe West today acts only indirectly in Ukraine, not wanting to cross certain lines, the intersection of which could lead to a direct confrontation between NATO and the Russian Federation.

We also recall that today Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the dispatch of the frigate Admiral Gorshkov to military service. This ship of the Russian Navy is armed with Zircon hypersonic missiles and Caliber cruise missiles. It will set sail across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and the Mediterranean, just as the Ukrainian conflict continues to escalate.

Earlier, representatives of the US Department of Defense acknowledged the existing backlog of the country in terms of hypersonic weapons from Russia and China. This circumstance also keeps Washington from ill-considered actions.

    The British are alarmed and are preparing an asymmetric response. Increase the number of their nuclear warheads on duty from 180 to 260 (by 40%).

      Will not help. In the event of a conflict with the use of Ya.O. England's fate is sealed.

            They have all nuclear weapons on submarines. So, at least the first, at least zero, they will not be touched and they will shoot back.
            The Britons are not idiots, they understand the vulnerability of ground systems within their borders, which is why they brought their arsenal to the okiya.

            So the other way around too.

            The whole point of nuclear weapons as a DETERRENT WEAPON is that its owner cannot be destroyed with impunity (with modern missile defense systems at least), the answer will always find the addressee, even if not fatal (for a large country like the Russian Federation, China, India or the USA), but it is very painful will be for anyone. It is enough for 3-4 missiles (and this is the most benign scenario, more likely 30-40) to fly to the cities of a million people ... is it worth it?

          However, to the point. SBP, like no other type of weapon, requires specificity and thoroughness in matters of judgment about: "how much, what, where and how can be used." So, "to our sheep!"
          Here is what VIC says:
          In 1982, the Thatcher government announced its decision to purchase 65 American Trident II D-5 missiles. They were located and prepared in the arsenal at the naval base of the submarine Kings Bay in the United States. The UK will produce its own submarines and warheads. The warheads and missiles were to be paired in the UK. Four Avangard-class submarines were designed and built.

          Next:
          Each SSBN can carry up to 16 SLBMs, each of which can carry up to 8 BGs. However, when the decision to purchase Trident II was announced, it was emphasized that British Trident boats will carry no more than 128 warheads In November 1993, Secretary of Defense Malcolm Rifkind announced that each SSBN would carry no more than 96 warheads. In 2010, this was reduced to a maximum of 40 warheads divided into 8 missiles.

          Therefore - "200" - does not roll! Yes, England has 225 tons of warheads. Of which only 160 units are in combat readiness. At the same time, they were allocated a total of 48 SLBMs for 4 carriers. Although 58 SLBMs have been purchased, 10 are constantly being "reloaded" in the Amer arsenal. The British have no other SBPs. Nuclear depth charges were decommissioned in 1992, followed by WE.31 free fall bombs on 1998 March 177, all dismantled by the end of August 1988.
          The Ams have an arsenal of B61-12s at Lakenheath for the F-35A, but the British have no control over them.
          So, they are all somewhat "more modest" than described by you, dear friend! bully

            What's the point? Anyway, something will fly in response. That's why it is called a "weapon of deterrence", to ensure that the attacker does not go unpunished. Therefore, a real existential reason is needed to attack first.

          And you are for the blue or for the red. You are sure that the coordinates where you live are not included in the flight mission of our rocket. They tested their anti-missile defense, for a hundred targets where only a tiny part of these are warheads? Your missile defense system can distinguish inflatable metallized packages from warheads.

      Let them cook.
      In order to reset the UK, 3-4 Sarmats are enough, each of which has 10 warheads with a charge capacity of 750 kilotons in each block. Hiroshima, for example, was hit by a 20 kiloton bomb.
