In India: Su-30MKI with BraMos missiles will become a factor in countering the Shandong aircraft carrier of the Chinese Navy


The Indian media noted that equipping the Su-30MKI fighters with BrahMos cruise missiles will make it possible to better secure the country in connection with the buildup of China's combat potential. About this writes the Indian edition of The Hindustan Times.


The material notes that the zone of responsibility of the formed Su-30MKI squadron, called the "Tiger Sharks", will also extend to the water area, which is increasingly used by Chinese warships to patrol. First of all, we are talking about patrol routes for PLA naval forces in the Indian Ocean - right up to Pakistani Gwadar.

Earlier in China, it was reported that the first Shandong Type 001A aircraft carrier built in the PRC with an aircraft wing from J-15 carrier-based fighter jets could soon leave for the Indian Ocean.

In India, they believe that the Su-30MKI, armed with the BrahMos KR, will become a serious factor in counteracting the same Chinese aircraft carrier Shandong and its escort ships.

China has already commented on this material. In particular, it is noted that Indians themselves write about the range of BrahMos missiles at 300 km. It is noted that even taking into account the radius of action of the Su-30MKI, this may not be enough to "reach" the Chinese AUG in the Indian Ocean.

One of the comments:

Some Indians have no idea how vast the oceans are. Indians think oceans are tiny lakes. If you do not have long-range bombers, do not expect the air forces to sink the warships of the enemy.

    Well, so the Chinese AUG does not carry any threat beyond this radius. request

          The SU-30 has a range of 1500 km plus a 300 km missile. I think enough to ensure security from the ocean. soldier

            1500 with such a heavy rocket?

            Have you ever looked at the fuel reserves, at the maximum take-off weight?
            Will it take off at all to fulfill your conditions?

              The weight of this modification "Bramos" (lightweight for air launch) is about 2,5 tons, the normal bomb / payload of the Su-30 is 4 tons. But there is also air resistance, so the range will apparently be slightly reduced to 1000 - 1200 km . but this is not enough. After all, there is also a refueling in the air, and the Indians have IL-78 and, possibly, tankers made in the USA.
              So max. the radius of damage is seen in the range of 1500 - 2000 km. We take a compass and measure the radius from the coast of Hindustan. This is more than enough for security.

                how much the combat radius changes depending on the load - you can look at the example of the Su-24 or Tu-22M3 ...

                  The normal load for the Su-30 is 4 tons (half of the maximum), this is enough to have Bramos (2,5) and 4-6 explosive missiles on its suspensions. Suppose the radius is reduced (aerodynamic drag) to 1000 km + the range of the rocket itself + the possible (and for the Indians it is possible) refueling in the air. Such a radius of destruction is enough for the needs of India.

      Aircraft carriers for China are not a means of attacking India. and a means of controlling shipping, its expansion into the Pacific region, and here - even as an aircraft carrier carries a threat. Another thing is that India has already lost there, and without aircraft carriers

        China does not have a Su-33. Originals were not supplied to them.
        Some experts believe that the J-15 is a copied Su-33. But the Chinese themselves say that this is an advanced J-11B (copy of the Su-27). Although when developing the J-15, the T10K-7 purchased in Ukraine (the Soviet prototype Su-33) was used.

        They will buy the F-18 instead of the Mig-29K and buy an additional Rafaley ...

          Indians will not buy Superhornets - this is too much. The diversity is unacceptable. And he has no additional useful properties.
          Rfali can and can, only the pace of Rafale production is depressingly low. And they do not and cannot have normal RCC.
          There are Su-30MKI2 and ... Su-57. In general, only the Su-57E can help the Indians dramatically. Well, or your own Hindu mega-fighter.

          The fact that the Russian Federation generally managed to penetrate Indonesia is not so much an accident, the stars just came together.

            The Russian Federation did not enter Indonesia. it's all. Stop. And there will be no more.

            Superhornets can buy.
            For there is no interchangeability of ship and airport - no.
            And they have a lot of complaints specifically about the boat.
            Moreover, the Americans will give them production.

            What is normal RCC?
            Huge Bramos?
            Not the fact that he really needs this ...
            But it will be able to carry both LASM and JASM-EP, and all versions of Scalp.

            Drying - will no longer come to the Indian market. In the next 30 years for sure.
            This is the point put on the main project of the future, after the Indians refused to continue working together.

      A lot of things can be done - to damage the elevator, to undermine ammunition, to set fire to tanks with fuel, to turn the "island" together with everyone who is there, to damage the deck.
      All of these options will not necessarily lead to the destruction of the ship, but with a high degree of probability will turn it into a useless bucket.

            Rjunimagu. From your knowledge.

            And where will he be in 80 minutes?
            Looking at Thailand? To Subic Bay?

            Howbeit:
            India has taken another impressive step towards becoming a full-fledged independent space power. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has successfully launched into orbit the latest RISAT-2B reconnaissance satellite, capable of observing the Earth’s surface even in heavy cloud cover. The launch of the PSLV-C46 launcher with a 615-kilogram satellite on board took place from the launch site on the island of Shriharikota in the Bay of Bengal.

            If this is not him, then this is just a matter of time.


            It took the Americans nearly 40 years to make a satellite constellation in the interests of the Navy. Our failed to make complete in principle. Those launched 3 satellites, even with nuclear reactors, were not enough. They died in a couple of years.
            Thousands of specialists are grown for decades, and are not written in lines on paper.

            And aircraft carriers are here and now ...

            You are a cap-taker, a complete separation from reality.

              The earth is flat))) Orbits along the equator, as I understand it, we do not consider either.

                Call me RTR satellites, or (as it is fashionable to call dual-use satellites in the form) "Earth remote sensing" - flying along the equator ...

                You and crocodiles fly - I understand ...

    The Indian media note that the equipment of Su-30MKI fighters wingedBrahMos missiles will make it possible to better secure the country in connection with the buildup of the combat potential of China. About this writes the Indian edition of The Hindustan Times.


    The fighters are equipped with the air-launched version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, a 2.5-tonne missile that flies at nearly three times the speed of sound.

    Cruise missile that PJ-10 "BrahMos" that P-800 "Onyx" (3M55) difficult to name
    supersonic universal anti-ship missile medium range

    Often the term "cruise missile" is mistakenly considered the equivalent of the narrower English term cruise missile, however, the latter applies only to guided missiles, in which most of the flight to the target takes place at a constant speed

    In India they considerthat the Su-30MKI, armed with the KR "BraMos", will become a serious factor in counteraction the same chinese Shandong aircraft carrier and its escort ships

    but about the water salute SU-30 is in the article (A water salute was given to the Sukhoi-30MKI fighter squadron during the ceremony of entering the Indian Air Force at the Tanjavur airbase.)

    The truth is the question arises, and who will give them target designation at such a range?

    A reconnaissance aircraft, radio reconnaissance or satellite ships - they can also go into space.

    And they are - these planes are reconnaissance and satellites of this purpose. I’m not talking about reconnaissance ships
