The Russian frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" approached Washington at a distance of impact with Zircon missiles

The Russian frigate, armed with hypersonic Zircons, came within striking distance of Washington.

The Russian frigate Admiral Gorshkov, armed with Zircon hypersonic cruise missiles, approached the American capital at a guaranteed strike distance with these weapons. A few hours ago, a Russian warship was at a distance of about 1300 kilometers from Washington. This, given the range of Russia's Zircon hypersonic missiles, is direct evidence that Russia is signaling its presence off the American coast to the US.

The information that the Russian warship actually crossed the Atlantic Ocean has been confirmed. At the same time, which is quite remarkable, it was possible to detect the Russian carrier ship of hypersonic long-range cruise missiles only when the latter was already in the central part of the Atlantic Ocean, i.e., was already at a distance of a direct missile strike by Zircons from the US coast.

However, as it became known, the Russian frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" made electronic launches of cruise missiles.

“The crew of the frigate “Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov”, operating in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean, conducted an exercise on the use of hypersonic missile weapons using computer simulation. In accordance with the training situation, the frigate "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov" worked out the organization of launching a missile strike with a hypersonic missile "Zirkon" on a sea target that imitates a ship of a mock enemy and located at a distance of more than 900 kilometers ", - informs the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The Pentagon has not yet reacted to the appearance of a Russian frigate armed with hypersonic missiles off the US coast.
