This is Russia's arsenal of Zircon, Onyx, Caliber and Kh-69 missiles and their production capacity

Two years and two months after the start of the invasion of Ukraine, Russia is making progress on the front and achieving 'tactical successes', the commander in chief of Ukraine stated this Monday, Oleksandr Syrskyi. Waiting for the 90 billion euro military aid package that USA approved last week, also intended for Israel and Taiwanreach Ukraine and allow it to regain the initiative, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, GUR, has provided information on the stocks of Russian Zircon, Onyx, Caliber and Kh-69 missiles. According to the GUR, at the end of the recently completed month of April 2024, Russia has abundant stocks of these missiles and significant production capabilities.

According to these data, the Russian arsenal includes approximately 40 3M22 Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missiles and has a production capacity of up to 10 units per month. Regarding cruise missiles 3M55/3M55M Onyx and Onyx-MRussia owns 400 unitswith an estimated monthly production also in 10 missiles.

For cruise missiles 3M-14 CaliberRussian forces have 270 unitswith a monthly production rate of 30 to 40 missiles. Finally, for guided air-to-ground missiles Kh-69the stock is 45 unitswith a production that varies between 1 and 3 missiles per month.

The Zircon missile, also known as 3M22 Zircon, is a hypersonic anti-ship missile developed by Russia. Capable of traveling at speeds up to Mach 9 (11,000 km/h)can cover distances of up to 1,000 kilometers. It is designed to evade radar detection and defense systems due to its high speed and maneuverability. The Zircon can be launched from ships and submarines, making it a suitable tool to attack both enemy warships and ground targets and do so with precision.

He Onyxalso known as export version Yakhontis a supersonic anti-ship cruise missile that has a maximum range of approximately 300 kilometers and can reach speeds of up to Mach 2.5 (3,000 km/h). It is designed to be launched from sea, underwater, air and land platforms and uses a combination of inertial guidance and active radar search to approach its target, making it effective at penetrating defenses at high speeds.

The missile Caliberspecifically the variant 3M-14is a long-range cruise missile that can travel up to 2,500 kilometers depending on the version. Designed for precision strike capabilities, it can be launched from ships, submarines and land platforms. The Caliber is known for its versatility, being capable of targeting both land and sea targets and employs advanced guidance technology to maintain accuracy over long distances, even in electronic warfare environments.

The missile Kh-69 is a more modern type of guided air-to-surface missile developed by Russia, intended primarily for precision strikes against ground targets. While specific details about its capabilities and range are less known than other Russian missiles, it is known that it is designed to be launched from aircraft.
