It Is Coming And It Is Near.

From the site of Russian Ministry of Defense:
Translation: The Frigate of project 22350 "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov" arrived to the Belomor (White Sea) naval base of the Northern Fleet. In the nearest future, in Severodvinsk, the ship will prepare for the tests of the new types of weapons and will sail to the White Sea for test launches.  

One doesn't have to be a Ph.D to figure this out--3M22 Zircon is obviously ready for fleet trials. This is a new page in warfare which is being turned as I type this.  I cannot stress enough the importance of this event. The whole military-intelligence world is now in a state of excitement (not to mentions vast armies of fan-boys and armchair strategists, such as myself) and anticipation. 1000+ kilometer range hyper-sonic anti-shipping missile launched from such platform as Russia's newest frigates of Gorshkov-class is a radical game changer in naval warfare. I touched upon some very basic salvo equations in my latest book when writing about this weapon, I may need to do a more thorough explanation with more (I will try to simplify it) combat math. MoD however, made a hilarious typo in this press-release.
