Zircon hypersonic missile


The first photo of the Zircon hypersonic rocket has appeared - there are even more questions for the rocket

A photograph of the latest Russian Zircon hypersonic missile has been published.

A photo of the newest Zircon hypersonic cruise missile has appeared on the web. A rather fuzzy photo makes it possible to really identify this unique cruise missile from previously published conceptual images. Many questions were raised by the fact that the image of the rocket in flight does not coincide with the image of the rocket flying out of the launcher.

In the presented image, you can see an enlarged fragment of a frame from the video of the tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile, previously published by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. In the image presented, you can clearly see the presence of an air intake and the angular shape of the rocket itself. However, in the second image, which shows the moment the rocket exited the launcher, it is noticeable that the head of the rocket has a rounded shape, and the "body" of the rocket is rather cylindrical. This fact raised a lot of questions about whether the general video from the tests was a consequence of the installation.

According to experts, the Russian defense department could really try to hide some details so as not to disclose any classified information. The fact that the Pentagon has already violently reacted to the tests of the Zircon missile, calling them a destabilizing step in the world, testifies to the fact that the United States realizes the real capabilities of this weapon, against which there are currently no means of protection.

Well Mosfilm - so Mosfilm. Calm down already.

On the video of the launch, it is clearly visible that a couple of seconds after leaving the mine, something separates from the rocket. This is probably the fairing.

And the point is to reveal all the details? They showed it in flight, and that's enough ... And gentlemen, let them scratch the turnip and think: how is that?
