Another top 5 weapons from National Interest
“Russia has a very impressive arsenal of military equipment, followed by a line-up in other countries,” the article says.
“Su-35 is certainly the best operating Russian fighter today,” the article notes.
“This aircraft is distinguished by its ability to fly at high altitude and high combat payload. Combined with advanced onboard equipment, these characteristics make the Su-35 an extremely dangerous adversary for the US Air Force, ”writes the publication.
The Amur-class submarines, “which are modifications of the Russian submarines of the 677 project, are designed specifically for the export market,” the author notes.
They are distinguished by stealth and good weapons.
"On the submarine" Amur "you can install an air-independent power plant, which means that they will be able to stay under water much longer. The submarines are equipped with four 533-millimeter torpedo tubes and 10 vertical launchers. This class of submarines is capable of moving at a speed of 20 nodes, ”the article says.
“The T-90 tank is the most advanced Russian armored vehicle, prior to the start of operation of the“ Armata ”,” the author says.
This is a great car, the cost of which is much lower than that of Western "Leopards" and "Abrams".
"In essence, this combat vehicle combines high-quality weapons, sensors, a launcher guidance system, multi-layered armor and Dynamic Contact-5 protection," the material says.
“Onyx” is a supersonic universal anti-ship missile that can be launched from submarines, surface ships, airplanes and coastal launchers. It is designed to combat surface targets, but can also be used against ground targets. The range of destruction is 300 kilometers in the anti-ship variant, ”the author reports.
Thus, "the Russian rocket is far ahead of the American counterpart of the RCC" Harpoon "", and the US "ship defense systems will not be easy to resist Onyx."
“Perhaps the most dangerous weapon that the US Navy may encounter is high-class homing Russian torpedoes tracing the ship’s trail,” the magazine writes.
According to the author, "this type of weapon has sensors that detect whirlwinds that form in the water when the vessel is moving", and "this guidance system has long been a headache for the United States Navy because it makes the American anti-torpedo defense impotent."
Now, as for the best American weapons.
The submarine "Ohio"
These submarines "work on a reactor cooled by pressurized water and capable of speeding up in 25 nodes." The 24 submarines are armed with Trident intercontinental ballistic missiles.
B-2 "Spirit" bomber
The aircraft combines stealth, excellent aerodynamics and good payload performance.
“This plane can even bypass advanced air defense, as well as fly 6000 nautical miles (about 11 thousand km) without refueling. Despite the fact that the aircraft is able to fly only at subsonic speeds, it can climb 15 kilometers, ”writes NI.
The fighter is characterized by low visibility and high maneuverability.
“The aircraft is capable of simultaneously conducting air-to-air and air-to-ground combat operations. The plane can also carry out many other missions, including intelligence gathering, observation, terrain research and electronic attacks, ”the material says.
“Washington’s plans to deploy a missile defense system in Europe, allegedly to counter ballistic missiles from Iran, caused particular irritation on the part of Russia,” the author notes.
The system itself consists of silo-based antimissiles, launchers and guidance systems, he recalls.
"The allies are, of course, not a weapon as such, but they are capable of playing a key role in a military conflict," explains the publication.
NATO countries allow Americans to deploy military bases on their territory, with many of them located along the Russian border.
