Only one in the world, Russian aircraft killer

As we all know, the United States is recognized as the number one aircraft carrier operator in the world, and they have a mature and advanced aircraft carrier fleet. If you want to attack this fleet, or even destroy it, it is bound to pay a great price.

For this reason, Russia has proposed a saturation attack theory, planning to use enough missiles to carry out a comprehensive and uninterrupted attack on the enemy’s aircraft carrier fleet, thereby breaking through the protection of the aircraft carrier.

In addition, if you want to successfully break through the defense of the US aircraft carrier, you can also use ballistic missiles to directly attack the aircraft carrier. To this end, Russia has developed a new type of strategic weapon, the “dagger” air-launched anti-ship hypersonic missile.

According to reports from many sources, the Kh-47M2 Kinzhal (dagger) missile has a variety of different warheads, which can attack moving or fixed targets. Although there is not much information about this missile, from the public appearance, the “dagger” “It is an air-launched ballistic missile with a maximum range of approximately over 2000km and a flying speed of approximately Mach 10. Since the carrier of this missile is the MiG 31k, it has certain advantages both at launch height and starting speed.

It is understood that the overall shape of this missile is similar to that of ordinary tactical-grade ballistic missiles, with a length of about 10m. Compared with general ballistic missiles, air-launched ballistic missiles have a higher launch height, which can almost reach 20-30km.
