"Russia will sink the US aircraft carrier": China discusses the P-700 missile

Chinese experts suggested that the weapon that the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Sergei Shoigu, called the American aircraft carrier capable of sinking, is the P-700 supersonic cruise missile of the Granit complex. Russian analysts said that there are more advanced missiles in Russia, for example, Caliber or Zircon.


China is discussing a recent statement by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu — our country, unlike the United States — does not need an aircraft carrier, but only weapons capable of sinking an aircraft carrier. It is cheaper and more efficient.

In this regard, the Chinese edition of Sohu recalled that just two days before this announcement, the Russian nuclear submarine K-186 Omsk launched the P-700 anti-ship cruise missile of the Granit complex as part of the tests.


A missile tested in the Pacific Ocean accurately hit a sea target at a distance of 350 kilometres, the author writes and explains that the weapons created by Russia have the highest flight speed and extremely strong destructive effect.
“This missile has a range of up to 650 kilometres. At the same time, it is believed that 550 km is the diameter of the protective outer ring of the most modern aircraft carriers in the United States. That is, the Russian anti-ship missile simply meets all the requirements for a successful attack on an aircraft carrier. It should be noted that the missile can also be equipped with a nuclear warhead, ”the Chinese media article said.
Military expert Vasily Dandykin confirmed that the flight range of P-700 supersonic missiles is hundreds of kilometres, and the ability to manoeuvre when approaching a target is a huge threat to the US aircraft carrier group. But at the same time, it is worth considering that they were still in service with the Soviet Navy.

“But for some reason, the Chinese did not pay attention to other missiles that are in service with the Russian fleet. The same "Gauges" that were used in Syria ...
The Russian Navy will soon receive the Zircon hypersonic missile, which has excellent capabilities, ”the expert commented by the FAN.

A few days earlier it was reported that Russia created the Onyx-M sea-based cruise missile with a maximum firing range of up to 800 km. The control system is designed with increased accuracy in the destruction of sea and ground targets.
Shooting successfully passed in Chukotka. The missile was first tested with the help of the coastal complex "Bastion" of the Pacific Fleet of Russia, reports NSN.
The flight passed normally - a missile successfully hit a target located 200 km from the coast in the waters of the Chukchi Sea. The safety of the exercises was provided by about ten Pacific Fleet warships and naval aircraft. Equipment and military personnel were delivered to the training site on the landing ship.
The rocket was developed by the Russian military-industrial corporation NPO Mashinostroyeniya, sources in the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation said. The new rocket is protected from electronic warfare.
“The Americans do not have systems capable of intercepting Russian ballistic missiles. If we talk about tactical sea-based missiles, then we have Onyx-type missiles that are capable of hitting American aircraft carriers. These missiles are supersonic.
If we take Russian Zircon-type missiles, then the USA does not have systems capable of intercepting them, and they will not appear for a long time.
We also have dagger-type missiles, ”explained Mikhail Alexandrov, a leading military expert at the Center for Military-Political Research at MGIMO.
A month earlier it became known that the Russian Navy in 2020 for the first time in 28 years will receive six submarines from the shipbuilding industry at once, four of which are nuclear submarines, a source in the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation said this.
He said that, according to the contracts, in 2020, Sevmash should hand over to the fleet the first serial submarines of projects Prince 955A Prince Oleg and 885M Novosibirsk. In addition, the Navy will receive the head submarine of Project 885M Kazan and the nuclear submarine (nuclear submarine) of the Belgorod special-purpose project 09852.
“Belgorod” attracted the especially close attention of the West and received rather flattering reviews. The British tabloid The Sun dubbed her a "sea monster." The author of the publication drew attention to the fact that in Russia they created the largest submarine of this type, and nuclear torpedoes placed on its board can destroy an entire city. The article indicated that with Belgorod, Moscow would be able to hit enemy naval bases or aircraft carriers almost anywhere in Europe or on the east coast of the United States.
