The submarine Severodvinsk will be equipped with a cruise missile with a maximum range of more than 2500 kmThe nuclear attack submarine Severodvinsk of the Yenen 885 project will be armed with unparalleled Caliber cruise missiles. In a subsonic version, for striking ground targets, the maximum range of this missile is over 2500 km, a source in the Russian military-industrial complex told reporters today.

"The missile meets all the requirements of the Russian Defense Ministry in terms of range, shooting accuracy, striking effect and invulnerability when flying to a target. Because of its unique tactical and technical characteristics, no one in the world has such a missile," the source said.

He confirmed that the Caliber cruise missile has multiple combat equipment. "The rocket will carry a monoblock warhead. In case the warhead is in normal equipment, then the maximum range of the missile’s flight will be more than 2,5 thousand km," the source said. "Caliber" is precision weapon“Its probable deviation from the target when shooting thousands of kilometers does not exceed two or three meters,” he stressed.

In the anti-ship, supersonic version, the maximum range of the Caliber is 375 km.

For comparison: according to open sources, the range of the Tomahawk cruise missile, which is in service with the US, in the submarine version and in non-nuclear equipment is about 1150 km.

      Cruise missiles are a specific thing ... especially good if the enemy has no air defense ... the events in Yugoslavia showed extremely low efficiency when working on protected objects ... RCCs at supersonic sound are a little different ... but still there are questions ... weapons with such missiles means that the function of the killers of aircraft carriers is not removed ... but this is wrong ... the nuclear submarine is a doomsday weapon ... and the rest is from the evil one ...

        You are a little confused ......... what doomsday? ..... Yes, RPK CH with BR is for him .......... The classes of ships, as well as their tasks, are different. ...... Attack boats, such as our "Leopards", "Barracudas" adversary "Los Angeles" and "Sea Wolves", etc.,
        exist for completely different purposes ....... such as the protection of the same "strategists", tracking and destroying the enemy, striking the KUG, AUG ground targets .........
        I don’t know where the information about the inefficiency of the work of the Kyrgyz Republic on targets in Yugoslavia comes from ...... but I know for sure that in Iraq and Yugoslavia the most important control centers, strategic important facilities, were destroyed precisely by sea and air-based missiles .....

        Well, in the end, the American Navy will counteract dizeluhi obtained? Their last DIPL was written off, if memory serves, around the 80th (?) Year ......

    I read this material with some irony. It would not be bad at first to bring the submarine to mind, and there is something to threaten with the Basurman today.
    Does the recent decline in American militant rhetoric mean anything? As it became known from the Internet space, quite recently there has been a repetition of the situation of "precision" of the Russian presence in the immediate vicinity off the coast of the states. The situation, before sprinkling into a fist, is one with the situation of 2009, when the states exerted massive pressure on Russia as a result of the war 080808.


    ----------- The Russian nuclear submarine of the 971 project (according to NATO classification - “Shark”), equipped with long-range cruise missiles, for a long time unnoticed cruised in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico off the US coast, writes Washington Free Beacon, citing unnamed US officials. According to the publication, the presence of the Russian submarine off the coast of the United States was confirmed only after she left the area. “The Russian strike submarine patrolled the waters in the immediate vicinity of the US coast only for the second time since the 2009 of the year,” the Interfax article quoted as saying by US officials that the presence of the Russian submarine off the coast of the United States testifies to the shortcomings in the operation of the American anti-submarine systems. They emphasized that the administration of US President Barack Obama is cutting funding for these facilities as part of a plan to reduce defense spending by $ 487 billion over the next ten years.

    “The fact that the Shark was not found in the bay is a matter of concern,” US officials said.

    Meanwhile, representatives of the US Navy refused to comment on this matter.

    “The Shark submarine was built with only one purpose - to destroy the U.S. Navy submarines equipped with ballistic missiles and their crew members. This is a noiseless boat that can sail quietly and avoid detection ... ”said another official.

    The nuclear submarine of the Shark project is the main type of multipurpose submarines of the Russian Navy, which differ from previous generations in a high level of stealth. In total, 15 of such submarines were produced .-------------

    Where did the range of 2500 km come from is unclear if the maximum range of known modifications of the Caliber anti-ship missile system is not more than 300 km.
    And further. Why would RCC fly so far into the light if it had a warhead with conventional explosives? It makes little sense to hit it onshore facilities, and getting into a moving target like a ship is problematic without constant, correct target designation. And where to get this target designation? The hope for satellites is scanty because they will be applied to the Earth in the first place. Long-range reconnaissance planes are waiting for the same, with no cover or foreseen.
    The appearance in the Russian Navy of an aircraft carrier of the Ulyanovsk type with AWACS and U aircraft is still more theoretical than practical. And if they (an aircraft carrier and aircraft) appear, then it will be very difficult to provide the required control center with the help of its relatively feeble AWACS. They would have to solve the air defense problems of their AUG and it is already good

        The issue of guidance is generally very interesting. "Considering the Sukhorukov missile system for the" strategists ", it is most likely that we are talking about one of the versions of the X-101 / X-102 family developed by the Dubna MKB" Raduga "(now part of the concern "Tactical missile weapons"). These are long-range (over 5000 km) subsonic cruise missiles, which are the result of further improvement of the Kh-55 aircraft missiles. "
        “It is assumed that the rearmament of the Tu-160 with these missiles will increase the striking power of long-range aviation by an order of magnitude. After all, the X-101 is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 5000 km from the KVO of only 5-6 meters. military targets of the enemy, without entering the zone of destruction of its air defense systems.Thanks to the reduced radar signature of the missile (EPR - 0,01 m2), it is almost impossible to detect it.X - 101 has a variable flight profile (altitudes from 30 - 70 m to 6000 m) , Flight speed: cruising 190 √ 200 m / s, maximum -250 - 270 m / s. Flight duration up to 10 hours.
        The rocket is equipped with an autonomous correlation system "Sprut" with an optoelectronic flight trajectory correction system, an integrated GLONASS receiver and an optoelectronic seeker in the final flight segment. This ensures the accuracy of hitting the target from 6-9m to 12-20m.
        The non-nuclear version (Kh-101) is equipped with a warhead weighing 400 kg, with two monoblock warheads, a stationary warhead and a detachable one (probably 2 warheads, one weighs 150 kg, the second 150 kg + container + parachute). "I have no doubts about the missile's range capabilities ... but such accuracy ... Here's another" Subsonic small-sized strategic cruise missile, flying around the terrain at low altitude, is designed to be used against important strategic enemy targets with previously reconnoitered coordinates. A modification of the rocket is the RK-55 "GRANAT" rocket (according to NATO classification SS-N-21 Sampson). The GRANAT cruise missile is designed to destroy enemy ground targets and has a firing range of up to 3 km. It can be equipped with a nuclear warhead with a capacity of 000 kt. The missile is initially controlled in flight by a passive guidance system. When approaching the target at a given range, an active homing system is activated. "" To ensure the combat use of missile defense systems equipped with an extreme correlation guidance system in the Navy, a special computing center was created to generate digital maps of the terrain of prospective theaters of military operations and develop flight missions. The control system equipment for the missile, submarine and coastal computing center was developed by the Research Institute of Aviation Instrumentation (director and chief designer A.S. Abramov).

        Andrey, the whole thing about the Caliber is its speed, which at relatively short distances (200-300 km) makes the interception of the Caliber very difficult, and if you add here equipping the Caliber with a special part, then this racket can really be considered as a "killer of aircraft carriers." although it does not already have a control (it would be strange if a potential enemy did not come up with such a control. If such a rocket is sent to 2500 km, then it will not be able to fly such a distance with a special unit and with a "deadly" speed, and at best it will be nothing differ from the same Tomahawk with a conventional warhead.
        The use of the A50 with its maximum detection radius of 400 km with a target 2500 km away from the launch point of the Caliber will also help little, especially since it is advisable for the A50 to fly away from the lines of interception of the "foreign" AUG fighters. And these lines are about 1500 km away from the aircraft carrier where these fighters are based. And the launch point of the Caliber may be where there is no A50 and does not smell.
        Based on the same aircraft carrier AWACS type Hawkai, it cannot compete with the A50 or E3A (too small). Again, there is no such AWACS in the Russian Navy so far and when it will be unknown. After all, the development time of such "flying radars" and their introduction into service is about 10 years. And that is under normal conditions, when there is personnel and financing and equipment and much more.

          Grigory, 2500km is the flight range of the Kyrgyz Republic, not the anti-ship missiles. And no A-50 is needed for the missile defense, since firing with such missiles goes at fixed targets. Analog-Tomahawk.

Just all the descriptions of the ESSM come down to the fact that this rocket can intercept the high-altitude supersonic or low-altitude subsonic rocket. But about the supersonic low-altitude - silence. In addition, it is semi-active, and this is not a plus for the missile defense missile

            Yes, where did you get these numbers? Hokai never fly away from AB further than 200-400 km, which, together with its approximately 450 km radius of detection, gives 850 km maximum.

          2500 km is a strategic missile defense of the Tomahawk type, and 375 km is an anti-ship missile of the Harpoon type.
          Of course, the latter will be used against ships. 375 km is certainly less than 550 km of Granite, but in principle it is enough, because radius of PLO American AUG - 250-300 km. But the calibers in the same nuclear submarine pr. 949 can be inserted 3 times more than Granites, i.e. one "baton" will carry 72 anti-ship missiles instead of 24. The difference is so significant that it compensates for the minus in range. In addition, unlike Granites, Calibers can carry any ships, even a corvette of project 20380. In general, the rocket is very good in its multivariance, which will greatly improve the unification of our fleet's weapons.

        Again and again. What a devil a nuclear submarine needs a nuclear submarine with a range of 2500 km subsonic speed and a conventional warhead, when for ground (stationary) targets there are nuclear submarines (Akuly, etc.) with ballistic missiles equipped with separating nuclear warheads of individual guidance, as well as ground complexes of the Topol type, "Yarsov" and other "business wood"?
        It would be possible to understand this if instead of one "thick" ballistic missile, instead of one "thick" ballistic missile, they began to install multi-charge launchers for the CD in its mine, as the Americans began to do, arming some of their nuclear submarines with Tomahawks. But again, to hit stationary targets. Then the electronic cards will be useful and everything else that has long been used for the Tomahawk-type CD.
        Shooting at targets moving like those that go as part of the AUG is possible only if continuous reconnaissance of these goals and constant adjustment of target designation. But to do this at distances of a couple of thousand kilometers so far, alas, there is nothing.
        Therefore, I regard the statement about "Caliber" flying at 2500 km as another scam. He may fly, but he will fly where it will fly and, most importantly, why it is not clear. But the money from the budget is also not sickly.

          I will supplement the respected TV. MURANO.
          gregor6549, before expressing your "expert" opinion, at least take an interest in the topic ... Well, read Wikipedia first. Even from there, you would know that Caliber is a vast family of missiles. It includes a strategic KR (range 2500 km), anti-ship missiles (in two versions, the range of one of which is 375 km) and PLUR with a range of 50 km. But they are launched from the same UKSK cells or from a TA of 533mm caliber.
          Of course, no one will shoot at strategic missile launchers on strategic missile launchers, for this there is an anti-ship missile system Caliber with a range of 375 km (in principle, enough).
          But the presence of calibers with nuclear warheads will significantly increase and strengthen our strategic nuclear forces.

            For the advice to use Wikipedia as a storehouse of wisdom, special thanks. But the topic you yourself does not interfere with the interest. After all, it is stated in the article that the range in 2500 km with a caliber can only be achieved by equipping it with a non-nuclear warhead. Therefore, the question arose of why you need to fence a garden with such a range.

              Actually, the original was like this:
              "If the warhead is in conventional equipment, then the maximum range of the missile will be more than 2,5 km. If the warhead is of a nuclear kiloton class, then the range will be slightly reduced," the source said.
              Here, for some reason, information was cut.

    What the devil is a nuclear submarine need for a CR with a range of 2500 km subsonic speed and a training warhead when for ground (stationary) targets there are nuclear submarines (Sharks, etc.) with ballistic missiles equipped with separating nuclear warheads for individual guidance as well as ground complexes such as Topol and other industrial wood "?

    For the same tasks as the Tomahawk.

    Shooting at targets with moving targets such as those that are part of the AOG is possible only if there is a constant reconnaissance of these goals.

    True. For firing at such targets and use anti-ship missiles Onyx, anti-ship missiles 3M-54 (1), etc.

    continuous adjustment of target designation

    Optional

    It can fly then, but that's where it will fly and, most importantly, why it is not clear.

    Reaches important stationary goals.
    What for? wink

    True. But I believe that in the usual version (with a greater likelihood of being used in contrast to the nuclear one), this is also a very strong deterrent. There are plenty of objects (nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power stations, and even HUNDREDs of options ..) in any country which will become a very sick injection. There will be a situation with UNACCEPTABLE LOSSES.
    And do not climb on the AUG. wink

      I absolutely agree with you, MURANO. I talked about SNF simply because
      gregor6549 first spoke of the futility of Caliber in connection with the presence of strategic nuclear forces.

    Yes, because no one needs it!

    mmm. A good thing. Even more. I like. And if you consider that NATO called it "incinerator", so in general.

    That's just in the article they write
    No one else in the world has such a missile due to its unique tactical and technical characteristics, "

    and on Wikipedia
    Operators

    Russia
    India
    China


    so who to believe?

    Any article with a "source in the Russian defense-industrial complex" raises great doubts. They also wrote about the Mistral armed with various missile systems. But it turned out to be only "Flexible" and AK-630
