It’s for sure “Granite”: in China they called the “main weapon” of Russia against the USA AUG

29
Found in China weaponwith the help of which Russia can fight with American carrier groups. According to the Chinese publication Sohu, the granite anti-ship missiles have the greatest potential for confronting US aircraft carriers.




Russian anti-ship missiles "Granite" are the best means of combating American aircraft carriers, the author of the article published on the Chinese portal is convinced. In his opinion, it was precisely these RCCs that were mentioned in a recent interview by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu when he spoke about counteracting US carrier strike groups (AUGs). According to the head of the military department, the United States is investing in the creation of the AUG, while Russia is investing in the fight against them, which is much cheaper and more effective.

In his interview, the Russian Minister of Defense did not name specific means of combating American aircraft carriers, but according to the author of the article, of all Russian anti-ship missiles, only Granite has a sufficient flight range to defeat the AUG. The author notes that this anti-ship missile can hit targets at a distance of up to 600 km, while the protection zone of an aircraft carrier group does not exceed 550 km.

Granite "just meets all the requirements of Russian weapons aimed at forming a strike against aircraft carriers

- the author declares, adding that the missile can carry a nuclear warhead with TNT equivalent in 500 kilotons, which allows you to hit the largest ships in the sea.

    Granite is already inferior in range to Onyx-M, which has a range of 800 km. At the same time, Onyx-M is the same in size as Onyx, which means it can be launched from launchers that are already on our ships and coastal complexes.

        200 meters now is not a small height.
        Now small is from 5 to 25 meters ..
        so granite has little chance of defeat along a low-altitude flight path. and zero on high-speed, but also high-altitude (over 20 km) trajectory.

    In fact, upgraded granite can fly at a speed of 4m, and at a maximum range of the same 800 km. Only they have undergone such modernization of everything can be a little more than a couple dozen rockets.

      It is unclear why this Chinese footcloth is being placed here at all. This is nonsense. In terms of rocket science, where they studied we taught. And they will, this yellow newspaper, write about rockets, and this jaundice to place this site? What, there is no longer enough normal news and material?

    Russia is a means of combating them, which is much cheaper and more effective.
    As they say - comments are unnecessary. It is also necessary to figure out who was involved in the arms race (this is taking into account the previous articles about the "lament" of American generals).

    About nothing! There is no and will not be AUG in the vicinity of our shores with any specific goals, objectives .... for many reasons.
    And coastal complexes are and will be, so that all sorts of bad thoughts in some hot minds do not even arise.

        Hello Roman soldier
        Modern military doctrine, defense! It does not provide for the design of power anywhere, whatever ... purely AUG is not required.
        How it will go further, I can't imagine .... political "games", it's a murky business!

    And why not upgrade it, taking into account modern technologies. After all, with current technologies it can be lightened by a kilogram by 400-500 or vice versa, using weight to increase range or speed.

    "Granite" DOES NOT TREAT on range "Onyx-M". At least due to the fact that "Granit" exists, and "Onyx-M" has not yet begun to pass flight tests. And it is not known how they will go and how long they will last. Do not put the cart in front of the horse when this cart is not yet there.

    And where do these modernized Granites stand? And what is the use of 800 km of range if there are at least target designation means?

    Yes, the whole order does not work out with one warhead. Drown Aircraft Carrier - Yes, Really

    Watching for what. Drowning an aircraft carrier with a direct hit is even redundant. Drowning an aircraft carrier without hitting it is possibly even insufficient (it all depends on the distance of the point of explosion from the aircraft carrier), drowning an AUG is definitely not enough.

    The supersonic "Granites" and "Onyxes" are a receding nature, their maximum flight altitude is within the air defense / missile defense zone of potential adversaries of the Russian Federation, and when flying at low altitude, the range of these missile launchers drops three times, forcing the missile carriers to enter the air defense zone / PRO.

    In the short term, the Zircon hypersonic missile systems and Russian medium-range ballistic missiles in the dimensions of a unified ship-borne silo, the speed, height and range of which are located outside the air defense / missile defense zone, rule.

    Bullshit. In the first lines it is clear that the author is "neither an ear, nor a snout." There is no need to read anything after the phrase that "Caliber" is faster than "Granite". Immediately, with the naked eye, the professionalism of the author of this opus is visible in sucking news from the finger
