Rocket to ship


Russian Su-30SM fighters will be armed with heavy 6-ton anti-ship missiles with a range of 1000 kilometers

The fight against enemy aircraft carriers and attack ships will turn into entertainment for the Russian Su-30SM.

Russian Su-30SM fighters intend to equip with unique heavy anti-ship missiles, created on the basis of the Kh-32 anti-ship cruise missiles, which will allow Russian heavy fighters to fight not only against enemy ships, but also deliver precise strikes against aircraft carriers from a distance of up to 1000 kilometers - previously a similar opportunity only long-range Tu-22M bombers possessed.

“Su-30SM fighters will be equipped with new heavy air-to-surface missiles. Experts are confident that we are talking about the Kh-32 liquid-propellant hypersonic missiles, which were previously used only on long-range Tu-22M3 bombers. The modernization of the combat aircraft is carried out within the framework of the development work "Adaptation-Su". Powerful ammunition will hit surface and ground targets at a distance of up to 1000 kilometers. According to the technical characteristics of the rocket, it is capable of accelerating to five speeds of sound at an altitude of 40 km. Its diameter is 90 cm, weight is almost 6 tons. The fuel supply allows you to cover distances of up to 1000 kilometers. ", - about it сообщает Komsomolskaya Pravda edition.

Previously, information about the development of a new cruise missile for Su-30 fighters did appear, however, no details were disclosed in this regard.

If we are really talking about a missile created on the basis of the Kh-32, then this may mean that Russian fighters can easily destroy the entire aircraft carrier strike group of the enemy from a distance inaccessible to combat aircraft and air defense systems.
