"In the coming days, Admiral Gorshkov will launch another Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missile from the Barents Sea at a naval target imitating an enemy aircraft carrier," the source said.
"The launch will be carried out in a heavy-threat environment," the source added.
This will be the second launch this year and the fifth one in total. The last one took place on 19 July from the White Sea at a ground target. The completion of state tests is scheduled for later this year, according to Sputnik sources.
