Last year, the Russian defense industry and the navy completed the development and testing of the Zirkon advanced hypersonic missile system. As a result of the measures taken, the missile and related instruments were adopted by the Navy and put into series. To date, the missile system has reached full operation - and for the first time went on a long sea voyage on a regular carrier.

On military service


At the testing stage, the carrier of the Zircon experimental missiles was the multi-purpose frigate pr. 22350 Admiral fleet Gorshkov of the Soviet Union", serving in the Northern Fleet. Before participating in the tests, the ship underwent some refinement and received a set of new equipment. It was reported that this frigate would later become the first combat carrier of the new missile system.

To date, all necessary measures and procedures have been completed. The Zircon missiles went into series and are supplied to the fleet, and the Admiral Gorshkov is completely ready for operation and use of such weapons. In addition, now a ship with an updated composition of weapons can go to sea and solve real problems.

Last week, January 4, for the first time in stories of the Russian and world military fleet, a ship with hypersonic weapons on board set off on a military campaign. Due to the special significance of this event, President Vladimir Putin and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu watched the release of Admiral Gorshkov via videoconference.

During the event, the head of state called the first trip of the frigate with Zircons an important or even significant event. He also thanked for the work of the specialists of the military-industrial complex, who created a unique missile armament. According to the president, such weapons will provide the country with reliable protection against external threats and will help ensure national interests.

The Minister of Defense reported on the readiness of the frigate to go to sea and revealed some details of the beginning long-range sea voyage. According to the plan, the ship will display the flag in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In addition, it is planned to enter the Mediterranean Sea.

During the trip, the crew will work out various tasks related to protecting the borders and interests of the country. Exercises and drills are planned. Some activities will be held together with friendly foreign countries. The Minister also announced the holding of various firing exercises, incl. using the latest hypersonic weapons.

After the minister, the commander of the ship, Captain 1st Rank Igor Krokhmal, reported on the readiness for the campaign. The ship went through a full cycle of preparation. Ammunition was loaded on board: missiles of various types, air defense systems, artillery and torpedo ammunition. The crew is ready to perform tasks. On January 4, the frigate put to sea and headed for the North Atlantic Ocean.

Maritime potential


In his speech, Minister of Defense S. Shoigu revealed some features of the campaign that had begun, and also indicated the main features of the frigate and its latest weapons. The minister recalled that the Admiral Gorshkov is a modern multipurpose warship. It carries guided missile weapons and is capable of solving combat missions in the far sea and ocean zone.

The main strike weapon of the frigate is now the Zircon missile system with unique tactical and technical characteristics. In flight, a hypersonic missile develops a speed of more than 9 M; flight range exceeds 1000 km. Such a missile is guaranteed to overcome any modern anti-missile and air defense systems.

The surface complex in the form of the Admiral Gorshkov frigate and the Zircon missile is distinguished by its special combat capabilities. According to the minister, the ship is capable of delivering accurate and powerful strikes against the enemy, both on ground and surface targets.

It should be recalled that in addition to the hypersonic Zircon, the ship also carries other weapons for strike and defense purposes. So, supersonic missiles "Onyx" or subsonic cruise missiles "Caliber" can be used to destroy surface and ground targets. There are multi-purpose artillery systems in calibers of 30 and 130 mm. From the means of air attack, the frigates of Project 22350 are protected by the Poliment-Redut missile systems and portable air defense systems. It is possible to fight underwater targets with the help of anti-submarine missiles RPK-9 "Medvedka" or 91R "Caliber".

The ship has a total displacement of 5,4 thousand tons with a maximum length of 135 m. The main power plant based on diesel and gas turbine engines provides a speed of about 29-30 knots and a cruising range of up to a month. Crew - up to 210 people.

First and subsequent


The frigate "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov" was the first in the combat strength of the Navy to receive Zircon missiles. It is possible that so far he is the only carrier of such weapons. However, in the near future the situation will change, and other ships will receive hypersonic missiles.

As reported, the Zircon missile and its transport and launch container are fully compatible with the 3S-14 firing system. Launchers of this type are widely used on ships of the latest projects, and each such pennant is a potential carrier of hypersonic missiles. Minor hardware and software upgrades are likely to be required to exploit this potential.

Accordingly, in the future, Zircons may receive a wide range of ships. First of all, other frigates of project 22350 should be considered as their carriers. Current plans provide for the construction of ten such ships, including two already accepted into the Navy. It is also impossible to exclude the corresponding modernization of ships of a number of other types, up to the rebuildable heavy nuclear cruisers of Project 1144.

In the foreseeable future, submarine forces will also receive the Zircon missile. The first launch of such a product from under water in October 2021 was carried out by the Severodvinsk submarine pr. 885 Yasen, and work on this project continues. As reported, the first regular carrier of the complex will be the Perm nuclear submarine under construction, pr. 885M. It is planned to be accepted into the fleet in 2026. Then other Ashes and other types of submarines will receive hypersonic weapons.

Thus, in the medium and long term, compatibility with Zircon hypersonic missiles will receive many surface ships and submarines. This number will include both pennants of new projects and modernized ships of older types. However, the exact composition of such a ship "grouping" and its strength have not yet been disclosed.

It is obvious that the Zircon hypersonic missile system will eventually become one of the main models of strike weapons for surface and submarine forces. It will complement the existing systems "Caliber" and "Onyx" and will take on some of the combat missions, increasing the flexibility of the use of the fleet as a whole. At the same time, complex and expensive hypersonic missiles, despite all the advantages, will not displace other weapons.

New stage


The recently launched combat campaign of the Admiral Gorshkov frigate with new weapons on board is of great importance - both for the ship itself and for our fleet as a whole. This event shows that the new Zircon missile system has not only been developed and brought to the series, but is also entering service and is ready for full-fledged operation.

In addition, now we can talk about the full-fledged beginning of the rearmament of the Navy. Following the Admiral Gorshkov, other ships and submarines will have to receive new hypersonic weapons. This process will be quite complex and will take several years. However, the obvious benefits and significance for national security fully justify all the expected spending and waiting.

          Here everyone is "terrified" from such a thunderstorm of the oceans. But nevertheless, this is the first military campaign of the regular carrier of "Zircons". We'll see where it goes, but this is more of a political demonstration than a real military operation. This is, in fact, the first-born ... as the people say: "The spool is small, but expensive," or: "The bug is small, yes ... odorous."
          Here they will equip Kasatonov and Golovko with the same GZUR (now undergoing factory tests), and then the submarine ... then it will really become a threat. And when "Admiral Nakhimov" returns to service ... that's when - yes. Live to see those wonderful days.

            All this is not enough !! Even with 10 ships it is not enough to protect the vast territory of the Russian Federation and to perform other tasks in other parts of the world. The second question is economic. , a large number of these weapons? Not only missiles, but also the carriers of these missiles. on my knees, in the Russian Federation, the training of military personnel. The SVO showed a lot of bad things in the army of the Russian Federation.

    The production of missile weapons, not to be confused with the missile industry in general (pah, pah, not to remember Rogozin by night), is perhaps the only type of military product that can rightfully be said to be unparalleled and adopted for service. Everyone who has invested a part of their work in the creation of Yars, Zircon, Vanguard and Caliber - well done!

        Did you read the article carefully?
        The full "constellation" of the system according to the project consists of five passive reconnaissance satellites and two active ones.

        Two active reconnaissance satellites, even in theory. To the entire surface of the earth. Of which one is actually launched. With a circulation period of 93,9 min.
        The remaining 5 satellites are passive. Moreover, the first of them has been flying since 2009 and showed itself not in the best way, but the tests were completed and put into operation ©.
        In short, "Liana" is a very rare and partially worn-out net with which we are trying to comb the waters of the world's oceans.

          And that the AUG is not detected by a passive satellite?
          Come on, she radiates so much that her amateur receiver can be detected.

          As for the composition, then Liana was planned to be so. This is enough to control all targets at the level of ship groups.

          Speaking of 90 minutes. Somehow I already wrote to you, but I will repeat. How often do you think it is necessary to have radio contact with the AUG, so as not to lose it?

    Good, iconic name for the ship. It was under Admiral Gorshkov that the fleet of the Soviet Union reached its maximum power and, if not equal to the American one, then at least it was a real ocean fleet capable of operating anywhere. And in the seventies there was generally a moment when the Americans had nothing to cover for a sudden strike by anti-ship missiles from our Mediterranean squadron

      Well done, the ocean fleet was built, but the coastal infrastructure, no! In the Northern Fleet, the situation is the same, they stood on barrels and threshed at idle, developing a motor resource!
      And what could the Yak-38, which burned kerosene for takeoff and landing, do!
      I saw it with my own eyes!
      In the Mediterranean, they rattled weapons in front of each other, and the wing of American aircraft carriers covered Our ships from the zone of inaccessibility of Our missiles! Yes, and more often with the help of BODs, they grazed the missile launch zones from SSBNs!

          The problems of basing the fleet in the north were written back in the Soviet era.
          I myself, as a schoolboy, read an article in the library about ships that stood and threshed their resources. There is no infrastructure, as it was not and is not there right now.

        Well done, the ocean fleet was built, but the coastal infrastructure, no! In the Northern Fleet, the situation is the same, they stood on barrels and threshed at idle, developing a motor resource!

        Well, for 11435, they did find the coastal infrastructure, immediately basing it on the SRZ-35 - so as not to wander between the barrel and the plant. smile

        In the Northern Fleet, problems with basing are a tradition. "Sevens" for a couple of pre-war years in the base killed the power plant and the ADG so much that half of them required putting in for repairs. For the berths were not equipped with anything other than bollards.

    Gorshkov needs to cross the English Channel one of these days, cheer up the British. Otherwise, yesterday they embossed an article by Ukrainian specialists on our "Admiral Kuznetsov", with a photograph with a photomontage. I wonder who from the BF will join him.

      He has already demonstrated the flag by going around the world alone!
      I assume that he is moving to the Eastern Mediterranean with Tanker Kama!
      Infa slipped that he would lead the grouping of ships in the Mediterranean!

      Tirpitz did not have hypersonic missiles, so I think this comparison is not appropriate at all.

        Poliment - Redoubt, 9M100 and ZAK broadsword missiles, one installation from each side and electronic warfare - this is frigate 22350.

        It is necessary, and often, to conduct exercises with real firing / blanks, even with the threat of damaging the ship. If there is no experience and confidence in these anti-missile systems, no matter what the armed ship (Moscow, for example, was armed to the teeth and with air defense, although not modernized) all these zircons will not have time to shoot back. We need real exercises and a lot !!!

    Punch into the water. Drown preventively in case of anything. Single. Not even the KPUG. Air defense is so-so, to put it mildly.

        Everything is fine - just the author of the post forgot the tag #sarcasm.
        Since the range began to be measured in days, then autonomy, accordingly, will have to be measured in miles. smile

    Like, positive reviews and examples about Us, solid minuses!
    There have gathered here solid critics and not just critics, but those who want to cheat and belittle Us and Our state! (((

      And most importantly - for this you don’t even need to invent anything. You can take the bare facts voiced by the same state - and immediately fall under "humiliation and humiliation". smile
      Let me just remind you that Gorshkov was scheduled to be handed over to the fleet in 2012. And according to the same plans, already for 2018, the Navy should have had 6 FR pr. 22350.
      About Chirkov with his 15 FR pr. 22350 and 22350M in the near future and I don’t want to remember ... because I don’t talker and troublemaker a journalist or politician blurted out something like that, but the whole commander-in-chief of the Navy.

    The operation showed that it is necessary to keep missiles in reserve. In addition to official missiles, you must either keep them disassembled so that you can assemble them. America still keeps disassembled nuclear weapons, there are more missiles in any equipment in general in the United States.
    One had only to give up the slack as a pack of dogs from NATO is already beginning to torment Russia
