Details of the first launch of the Zircon hypersonic missile from the Kazan nuclear submarine have been disclosed


The details of the launch of the Zircon hypersonic missile from the Kazan nuclear submarine have become known.

According to the source of the information resource Avia.pro, the first launch of the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile from the Russian nuclear submarine Kazan will be completed in a few months. Earlier it was assumed that the tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile would be carried out from the Kazan nuclear submarine, however, for unknown reasons, it was decided to use the Severodvinsk nuclear submarine for this.

Information regarding the use of the Severodvinsk nuclear submarine for the first test launch of the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile was also confirmed by a source from the RIA Novosti news agency, but the circumstances of this were not disclosed either.

“Project 885 Yasen and 885M Yasen-M submarines are to become the standard carrier of the Zircon hypersonic missile. Therefore, the lead boat of this project, Severodvinsk, has been selected as a test ship for this missile, ”a source told the RIA Novosti news agency.

Among other things, there was some evidence that, for a number of reasons, the Kazan nuclear submarine has so far encountered some problems during its own tests, but this information has not yet received documentary evidence.

It should be noted that the Zircon hypersonic missile needs to pass three more tests, after which it can be put into service.
