Russian Navy Command Found Hypersonic Zircons Problems

The head of the Russian Navy spoke about the problems of Russian Zircon hypersonic missiles.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Nikolai Evmenov, unexpectedly announced the problems identified by the latest Russian Zircon hypersonic missiles as part of the ongoing tests. According to Evmenov, tests of Zircon hypersonic missiles are successful, but the latter have "childhood diseases."

“Zircon will be placed on one of the warships of the fleet, frigates. Modernization will take place, and we will test it in order to remove various “childhood diseases”. Now his tests are successful. While we put on all ships "Caliber" and in parallel we will test the "Zircon"»- said the commander in chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

It is not known what kind of problems the latest Russian hypersonic missiles are talking about, however, experts believe that the statement of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy may be due to the fact that today comprehensive tests of these missiles have not yet been carried out, and therefore there may be some then the nuances, especially when you consider the fact that these missiles have a speed of about 10 thousand km \ h.

Given the fact that, according to Evmenov, the tests are successful, it is likely that some nuances associated with the preparation of missiles for launches are implied, however, at the testing stage this is completely acceptable.

It should be clarified that, according to Evmenov, the first Zircon hypersonic missiles can be placed on one of the frigates, which, obviously, implies either Admiral Grigorovich or Admiral Gorshkov.

Guys, it is imperative to identify the shortcomings of the Zircons, so that the guys from the design bureaus and factory floors eliminated them at a pace.
