The Russian Navy has successfully test-fired a Zircon hypersonic missile from a nuclear submarine at a conditional target in the Barents Sea, the Defence Ministry said on 4 October.

“The Russian Navy carried out the first tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile from the nuclear submarine Severodvinsk. The missile was test-fired at a conditional sea target in the Barents Sea”, the ministry said in a statement.
Objective control data shows that the missile hit its target.
“The test-firing of the Zircon missile from the nuclear submarine was recognised [as] successful”, the Russian Defence Ministry added.
The defense ministry, which tested firing the Tsirkon missile from a warship in July, said that the Severodvinsk submarine had fired the missile while deployed in the Barents Sea and had hit its chosen target.
