Russia Completes Second Underwater Launch Test for ZIRCON

Hypersonic Cruise Missile Met Test Expectations

The nuclear submarine missile cruiser SEVERODVINSK successfully completed the second underwater test launch of the ZIRCON hypersonic cruise missile, according to a Russian MoD statement on 4 October.

After launch from a depth of 40m in the White Sea at a hypothetical target in the Barents Sea, the missile’s flight “fully corresponded to the specified parameters,” according to the statement. The previous day, the SEVERODVINSK launched a test ZIRCON missile from a surfaced position.
