Putin has sparked fears of conflict as Russia begins production of a nuclear missile that is “too rapid to stop.”

PUTIN’S VLADIMIR Russia has prompted new fears of war as it begins mass manufacturing of “too quick to block” rapid hypersonic missiles. The 6670mph weapon, which can carry a conventional or nuclear warhead, has been dubbed “unstoppable” by Moscow. The missile was given the name Zircon by the Kremlin. “A serial manufacture of Zircon missiles is beginning at the NPO Mashinostroyenia [formerly known as OKB-52], while state trials of this product’s surface launches will continue,” a Russian source said. After two successful test launches, flight development testing of the Zircon hypersonic missile from an underwater carrier will begin in 2024 from the Project 885M (Yasen-M) modified nuclear-powered submarine Perm.

The Zircon is a multi-purpose hypersonic missile that can strike both sea and land targets.

President Putin previously stated that Zircon hypersonic missiles can travel at Mach 9 and have a range of 620 miles.

Russia plans to install Zircon hypersonic missile weapons on its submarines and surface ships.

The addition of Zircon to multiple ships and submarines might considerably improve the Russian Navy’s overall capability.

Such missiles are concerning because typical early warning systems in the United States may not be able to detect them.

Hypersonic weapons, such as Russia’s 3M22 Zircon, travel at such a high speed and low altitude that they can pierce typical anti-missile defenses.

In reality, the weapon moves so quickly that the air pressure in front of it generates a plasma cloud, which absorbs radio frequencies and renders it virtually invisible to active radar systems.

In order to intercept incoming threats, the US Aegis missile interceptor systems require 8-10 seconds of reaction time.

The Russian Zircon missiles will have already traveled 14 miles in those 8-10 seconds, and the interceptor missiles will not be able to catch up.

Even if a US ship detected a Zircon missile from 100 miles away, it would only have one minute to respond, according to one technical source.

Russia’s move to hypersonic weapons is most likely a response to the United States’ size, technology, and sheer number of aircraft carriers.

China and North Korea have also conducted such tests, igniting an arms race in the region and sending a message to both friends and foes around the world.

Last month, Russia’s deputy prime minister, Yury Borisov, stated that Russia has surpassed the West. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
