Russian Northern Fleet frigate test-fires Tsirkon hypersonic missile

A successful test was conducted where a Tsirkon hypersonic cruise
missile was launched from the Admiral Gorshkov frigate that was located
in the waters of the White Sea ..

The Admiral Gorshkov frigate successfully fired a Tsirkon hypersonic
cruise missile from the White Sea, hitting a naval target over 350 km
away located at the Chizha training ground in the Arkhangelsk region ..
On Oct. 6, the same frigate test-fired a Tsirkon hypersonic missile for
the first time. .. All shootings since then were successful. ..

The US also has hypersonic missile test beds but of course the problem
with hypersonic missiles is the guidance and target seeking function. A
hypersonic missile is going to be travelling in a cone of plasma which
pretty much rules out any radar or infrared seeker. They are likely
useful fot attacking static targets which is what the US Army and Navy
are mainly concerned with but a manoeuvering vessel over the horizon is
another problem entirely.

.. Russian Sub Fire Nuke Missiles ..

A Russian missile submarine operating in the Pacific Ocean fired a salvo of
four Bulava nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. The missiles streaked along
almost the entire length of Russia, from a location north of Japan all the
way to a site near Finland. It was the first multi-missile test of the
Bulava system since 2018. ..

Bulava missiles fired from the Sea of Okhotsk can reach most of the United
States west of the Mississippi, while missiles fired from the White Sea can
reach U.S. territory east of the Mississippi. ..

Russia deploys new Avangard nuclear boost-glide vehicle into 'combat duty'

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has
reported that a next hypersonic missile system outfitted with the Avangard
nuclear boost-glide vehicle has been put into service. ..

The Avangard is a strategic intercontinental ballistic missile system
equipped with a hypersonic boost-glide vehicle. .. The boost-glide vehicle
is capable of flying at over 20 times the speed of sound in the dense
layers of the atmosphere, maneuvering by its flight path and its altitude
and breaching any anti-missile defense. Mounted on top of an
intercontinental ballistic missile, the Avangard can carry a nuclear weapon
of up to two megatons. ..

First MC-21 Powered by Russian Engines Takes Flight

The first MC-21 narrowbody powered by Russian-made PD-14 engines flew
for the first time Tuesday morning from United Aircraft Corporation's
Irkut plant in the Siberian city of Irkutsk. ..

The MC-21 program already has flown four MC-21-300 prototypes equipped
with Pratt & Whitney PW1400G turbofans .. The PD-14-powered MC-21-310
emerged as a reaction to the threat of tightening economic sanctions
by the U.S. .. UAC has since offered the PD-14 to power China's Comac
C919 to address U.S. sanctions against that country. ..

<http://tinyurl.com/yat7y6ap> flightglobal.com

.. The development of the PD-14 is a "breakthrough" for Russian
powerplant manufacturing. "For the first time in many years, a new,
entirely-Russian engine has appeared," ..

Federal air transport regulator Rosaviatsia certified the PD-14 in 2018.
The engine has a take-off thrust of 30,800lb (137kN) and a fan diameter
of 1.9m.

Aviadvigatel says the specific fuel consumption of the engine is 10-15%
lower than that of previous-generation engines, owing to the use of
innovative technology and materials.
