Putin’s statement about Zircon missiles at the Navy Day parade scared the British

0
The words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the supply of Zircon hypersonic missile systems to the Russian Armed Forces caused panic in the UK. This was reported by journalist Douglas Patience in an article for the Mirror.

Peishent noted that hypersonic weapons can travel at nine times the speed of sound and called the Russian president’s words a “chilling threat.” In the comments to the material, the more cold-blooded British stated that there was no danger, because no one in their right mind would launch a rocket into the territory of a nuclear power.

During the parade on the Day of the Navy in St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin said that the delivery of Zirkon hypersonic missile systems to the Russian Armed Forces would begin in the coming months. The frigate “Admiral Gorshkov” will be the first ship to use the “Zircon”.

Zircon is the world’s first hypersonic cruise missile capable of sustained flight with maneuvering in the atmosphere using its own engine thrust. Its maximum speed reaches nine speeds of sound, the maximum firing range is one thousand kilometers. “Zircon” is capable of hitting ground and surface targets.

In early June, the Admiral Gorshkov frigate successfully completed a test cycle of the Zirkon missile, during which it hit a sea target located in the White Sea at a distance of about a thousand kilometers.
