A BOTCHED missile launch “sets the sea ablaze” on the same Russian ship designed to carry Putin’s unstoppable hypersonic rockets.
The rocket left the launcher, rose and rotated alarmingly before crashing into the sea, it claims.
The failed missile posed a major threat to Marshal Shaposhnikov’s newly refurbished frigate when it hit the water, with flames visible on the sea.
From above a voice of the officer who is making the film is heard saying “Look, the sea is burning”.
Eventually, the Kalibr missile burned out in the Pacific Ocean as the warship pulled away.
The missile was conventional, but this frigate is intended to carry Vladimir Putin’s “unstoppable” 6,100-mph hypersonic missile, a weapon designed to destroy Western cities in a nuclear war.
The timing of the Kalibr incident is unclear and the Russian navy has not admitted the incident.
The video was uploaded to a Russian website which commented: “The rocket left the vertical launcher, rose to a height of several tens of meters, but was unable to hit the target.
“A vertical movement with rotation has started.
“Then there was a flash and the rocket, falling apart, began to fall into the water.
“After falling into the water, a stain remained on the surface of the sea, the burning continued and lightning flashes were visible.
“The ship left from where the rocket landed.”
The incident was revealed by Topwart the day after the Navy announced Marshal Shaposhnikov had rejoined the Pacific Fleet Reserve Forces after repairs and upgrades.
At the time, an official video was released showing a successful launch of Kalibr from the warship.
A spokesperson was quoted this week by TASS as saying, “At sea, the warship has demonstrated compliance of its maneuverable and speed capabilities … and has demonstrated the reliable operation of its systems and mechanisms, navigation and radio equipment. techniques “.
The report said the frigate in “combat training” had: Kalibr test launch cruise missiles against air and sea targets. “
It also “attacked a fictional enemy submarine with torpedoes and depth charges, hit an aerial target with Kinzhal surface-to-air missiles and practiced electronic warfare measures.”
The warship “received the latest Kalibr-NK and Uran attack missile systems and the most advanced artillery armament.
“His firepower has increased many times over from his original designation.
“The warship currently carries two versatile naval launchers for 16 Kalibr-NK and Oniks cruise missiles and ultimately for Tsirkon (Zircon) hypersonic weapons.”
Putin sees the Mach 8 Zircon as “truly unmatched” as his favorite missile for hitting American cities in the event of a nuclear conflict, it says.
Dmitry Kiselyov, presenter of the leading Russian weekly television program Vesti Nedeli, previously showed on-screen a map of the United States identifying targets that he said the Kremlin would like to strike in a nuclear war.

Kiselyov, considered a prominent Putin propagandist, said the Zircon missile could hit targets in less than five minutes.
Putin said the West was trying to steal secrets related to Zircon and other cutting-edge Russian weapons such as the Avangard.
