    100 bucks says it will either capsize, the crew will get drunk and scuttle it or the missile will blow up inside it for no discernible reason.

      Only just finished and it is useless in the conflict unless they transport it over land to the Caspian Sea or Black Sea. As you can't fire missiles over foreign countries. So him being in the Atlantic is just Russia 'flexing'. And it'll be shadowed all the way.

        The hilarious part is they actually think a single frigate is enough to be taken seriously as a presence patrol.

          No reason not to have a submarine shadow it, which is gonna be pretty standard.

            Oh I'm not disagreeing, it's just adorable that this is what the supposed 2nd greatest military in the world thinks is somehow a flex.

    Ok and?
    Zircon's hypersonic properties are almost certainly bullshit propaganda, given they've never actually demonstrated them with any more data than, "It went hypersonic, trust us bro" just like how S-400 has a 100% success rate in tests. Furthermore, the irony of the missile having the same name as a diamond substitute is palpable.
    I would also say that this is 1 (one) frigate that is almost certainly being shadowed by NATO assets, it's not a problem. Everyone knows where it is. Do you know where NATOs nuclear submarines are BTW?
    Its also allowed to sail in intl waters, if Russians think that is some kind of show of force, they need to get a grip or stop being paranoid.
    And if Moskva reports are anything to go by, half of those weapons and ELINT systems are just for show anyway at a generous guess

      unlimite cope. Nato shills will never accept Russia and China already have hypersonic missiles in service and Nato doesn´t.

            You do realize that America has multiple simultaneous hypersonic weapons programs going on all at once right? America has more successful hypersonic weapons than Russia and China have put together.

        You honestly believe people who make claims like this?

        Yes they will believe anything, like the J20 with its magic 0% failure rate. Just hide and deny, make claims however you like, and screech "cope cope cope" at every well researched/informed rebuttal. Works with brainwashed political slaves.
        As for "hypersonic missile", it is a dubious, near-meaningless term (except that it can reach some meaningless Mach number, and uses a ram/scramjet, but then has to be accelerated to supersonic speeds using a conventional carrier missile). Until it is actually deployed in action I see it as pointless, meanwhile you have HIMARS rockets going through S-400 defenses like a hot knife through butter.

        The fact that Moskva got sunk using Ukrainian subsonic cruise missiles shows they are far, far from "obsolete". It is one thing to show off something new and shiny looking and sounding, but another to produce large quantities of it.

    And then Ukrainian frogmen place a ton of mines on its hulls and make it go "BOOM".

        You seriously don't think "an accident" awaits this big scary ship sooner or later?

        Ukrainians are the same guys who blew up the Moskva.

      if this stupid piece of shit missile worked they wouldve rolled it in their own borders and pointed it at ukraine already, not loaded it onto some fucking boat across the world so they could wave their dicks a little.

        Not to mention actually firing the thing at NATO would just hasten their demise and that's if the missiles even work in the first place.

    do we even have a vid or pic of Zincron? Does it have mid course data link? How does it do terminal guidance?

    All we get is mystery vls smoke plumes and pictures of the Boeing waverider with Zincron slapped on it.
