State tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile will take place before the end of the year

State tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile will be carried out by the end of this year.

Against the background of successful tests of the domestic hypersonic cruise missile "Zircon", it became known that in the coming months state tests of these weapons will begin, according to the results of which a decision will be made on the supply of this missile to the troops.

According to data available to the news agency Avia.pro, the tests are planned to carry out several launches and hit land and sea targets. The Russian frigate Admiral Gorshkov will be involved in the tests of the Zircon rocket, while the testing area has not yet been named.

It is noteworthy that the state tests of a domestic hypersonic cruise missile also provide for launch from a submarine, and although intentions to conduct such tests this year were previously reported, there is currently no information regarding this.

To date, it is known that the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile exists in two versions: one of them is designed to destroy sea targets, and the other - ground ones.
