Russia successfully tests Zircon ship-based hypersonic cruise missile

Russia has successfully tested another Tsirkon (Zircon) hypersonic cruise missile, a new addition to a series of Russian weapons called “invincible” by President Vladimir Putin.

Launched from the Admiral Gorshkov warship located in the White Sea, the missile hit a surface target off the coast of the Barents Sea directly at a range of over 350 km and the flight speed of 7 Mach, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

“During the test, the tactical and technical characteristics were confirmed. The flight speed reached nearly 7 Mach,” the statement said.

The ministry said that the Russian government is planning to equip submarines and surface vessels of the Russian Navy with the Tsirkon system.
