MOSCOW - The Russian Defense Ministry said on Wednesday the frigate Admiral Gorshkov tested its strike capabilities in the western Atlantic Ocean.
In a statement, the ministry said the frigate had run a computer simulation on hypersonic Zircon missiles.
Zircon missiles have a range of 900 km, and can travel at several times the speed of sound, making it difficult to defend against them. The statement did not say the frigate had launched a missile.
