NI wondered who would win a possible battle between the Zumwalt destroyer and the Kirov-class cruiser

In the United States, they wondered who would win in a possible battle between the Zumwalt destroyer and the Kirov-class cruiser. The corresponding article was published in the American magazine The National Interest.


NI, a fan of comparing Russian and American military equipment, has released another article where he conducted a hypothetical battle between the American missile destroyer Zumwalt and the Russian Kirov-class cruiser, apparently implying Peter the Great - the only heavy nuclear cruiser of Project 1144.2 Orlan in service. ...

At the very beginning of the article, the author emphasizes that the Zumwalt-class ship is the most modern destroyer of the US Navy, created using stealth technology, the signature of which on the radar is equivalent to a small fishing vessel. It is equipped with 80 launchers for various missiles, including anti-aircraft and cruise missiles, as well as two 155-mm artillery mounts. At the same time, the Kirov-class aircraft carrier is a relic from another era, which has good air defense and is equipped with the "giant" anti-ship missiles "Granit".

According to the publication, the American destroyer and the Russian cruiser will fight on the high seas. At the same time, the ships do not know the location of each other and are intensely looking for the enemy. In such a situation, the author argues, Zumwalt has an advantage, as it has stealth technology and is difficult to spot. Therefore, he will be the first to discover the Russian Kirov.

Also, stealth technology will theoretically help the American destroyer approach the firing range of its guns. If a destroyer is found, the cruiser can strike with her anti-ship missiles, but the Zumwalt air defense system will cope by shooting down the bulk of the missiles. However, according to the author, the Kirov will not be able to strike the anti-ship missile, because the missile guidance system "will not see the American destroyer."

At the same time, the author admits that the destroyer does not have anti-ship missiles, and the damage inflicted on the cruiser with the help of guns "depends on the situation."

The author is convinced that the result of this confrontation will be a draw, because none of the ships will be able to inflict damage on the other, but with the appearance of new anti-ship missiles in service with Zumwalt, it will have a significant advantage.

Neither the Zumwalt, unable to get close enough to the enemy to strike at him with his guns, nor the Kirov, unable to use his weapons with radar guidance, will not be able to defeat each other, and they will have to continue the fight another time

- he concludes.

              What is left in parentheses is that the Zamvolt is a generally problematic ship. And on the power plant, and on armament, and on the concept (I am silent already for the cost). In short, there is one big problem, and the Americans themselves do not know what to do with it and where to shove it. This is according to the American press itself, which we regularly discuss here. So the question of who is stronger comes down to commonplace. Decorative thoroughbred horse, against an old war horse. I would bet on an old war horse, especially a modernized one.

        So with Aurora the chances are the same. A tin tub with 2 * 155 and a range of 18k, against an armored cruiser with 10 * 130 and a range of 20 + k. Yes, Aurora will turn him into a drushlag even before he comes to the range of his shot. And Zamvolt has no anti-ship missiles as a class.

          Here you are a little wrong ...
          The Americans taught their SAM / ABM missiles to hit ships.
          Tests were carried out.
          There is a difference from specialized anti-ship missiles - missile defense missiles have a small warhead.
          But they are supersonic, the kinetic impact is serious.

            What is the range? What is the probability of hitting a target? What is the damage? Here is granite - 7-9 tons. speed 2500, even without detonation of the warhead Zamvolt from "kinetics" will split in half ...

              The range of the SM-6 for ships is relatively small - 200-250 km.
              The warhead, as I already wrote, is small. They will not drown, but they will cause damage. The accuracy is good.
              The last Tomahawks were also made "smart": they taught how to scan and search for ships
              the adversary.
              So the statement that the Zumwolts do not have anti-ship missiles is incorrect.

                Too many questions. With about the same success, it can be said, as suggested above, that the same can be used to kill Granites on Aurora, and it will blow Zamvolt to shreds.

                  The rest of the questions are not yet relevant, because the US Navy has not received serial missiles. However, the LRASM anti-ship missiles can also be successfully used from the same TLUs, they have already been adopted by the Air Force, the Navy has tested them and is also going to accept them for supply.

                  on Aurora, there is no place to put Granites. Moreover, these missiles have long been out of production.
                  But in general - this conversation (about a hypothetical confrontation between two ships in a vacuum - as if they were alone on Earth and remained) - about nothing.

                    That is, in the bottom line, neither there nor there anti-ship missiles are available. And even hypothetically, they will still have to wage an artillery duel with a completely predictable outcome. What is generally written in the article is that the zamvolt, even without taking into account the anti-ship missiles that our cruiser has in stock, will still lose to him even in an artillery duel, not to mention the total loss to any ship of a similar class, a century and a half ago. And they call this misunderstanding the most modern ship? Well, at least wooden frigates with muzzle-loading cannons from the times of Columbus can win. Already at least something.laughing

      Why over-the-horizon? The Zamvolt, of the weapons that he can use against ships, only have two 155mm cannons with a range of up to 18 km against the AK-130 of Peter the Great with a range of 23 km. Will this tin be able to go those 5 km under the fire of AK-130, at least to try to do something? And if you consider that the AK-130 is at the stern. So while our cruiser will catch up, if at all, our cruiser will run out of ammunition. But they will have time to drag them from the holds more than once. It's like chasing a carriage on a bike with a slingshot. In theory, of course you can. Well, pure neighing.laughing

      So what would "shoot" you must first swim at a maximum speed of 5 km under the fire of the guns of a stationary enemy. Get 180 shells in your direction (all the prepared ammunition), stay on the move, and generally afloat. And only then, it will be possible to try to take advantage of the situation in which at least something can depend on the zamvolta. laughing

    Also, stealth technology will theoretically help the American destroyer approach the firing range of its guns. If a destroyer is found, the cruiser can strike with her anti-ship missiles, but the Zumwalt air defense system will cope by shooting down the bulk of the missiles. However, according to the author, the Kirov will not be able to strike the anti-ship missile, because the missile guidance system "will not see the American destroyer."

    Well, it's an American edition! "Abrams" is the best tank in the world, patamushta negro-loader is super. Flying misunderstanding Phi-35 fighter of the 5th generation, patamushta it is a stealth type. Well, others should not see it, and that others may have radars that can see them from afar, Duc does not count. Well, he MUST be the first to see you and defeat you fool The logic of children in the sandbox. "Zumvalt" is also stealth and that's it, you will see an analogue of a fishing seiner on the radar screen. And the fact that in a storm you will be rocked and you will periodically glow, like a supertanker does not count? Or will the enemy lift a DRO helicopter into the air and see you from a different angle, too, is not considered?

    And after the very first shot from these guns, a little "stealth" and "granite" will roll it into plywood chips.

    In such a situation, the author argues, Zumwalt has an advantage, since it has stealth technology and is difficult to spot. Therefore, he will be the first to discover the Russian Kirov.
    I wanted to write that Zumvolt (if he manages to get out of the port parking, which is far from a fact, and if all its components work, which is generally unrealistic) will be instantly detected by an airplane with a video camera. But there won't be planes, right? )
    Good. The American has a small signature. But she looked like a spark on the tablet a long time ago. Now the radar works by default with a computer analyzer (although after the topic about shooting, I'm no longer sure that modern technologies are used at all), there is an electronic signature. Whatever you do with the Zumwalt, its signature will be as small as a fishing boat (let's say it's true), but certainly not like a real seiner! That is, the task is just to get its signature ...

      You can also add that the author for some reason forgot that there are helicopters. Only Zumvolt has one, and Kirov has 3 of them.

              The take-off helicopter deck will do.
              He has a regular mode - launch from a catapult. And we catch it back with a net.
              Somewhere there were shots of how this happens. Moreover, the UAV landed on the frigate's helipad.

        Zumvolt has no anti-ship missiles! The radiation from its AN / SPY-3 "Orlan" radar will detect 200 kilometers away. All that remains is to launch the missiles, they will do everything themselves.

    The Zumwalt class ship is the most advanced US Navy destroyer, created using stealth technology ...
    The Kirov-class aircraft carrier is a relic from another era
    I wonder what caused exactly this choice of the enemy? Show that there is no chance? Then it was necessary at least to choose Aurora.
    And so: An amateur to compare Russian and American military equipment - an amateur to whistle in vain


    Presumably, NI chose the most perfect (meaning the strongest) non-aircraft carrier of the US Navy and compared it with the strongest non-aircraft carrier of the Russian Navy.
    I suppose they had the following logic.
    However, how is a one-on-one duel in an open field possible in reality - I don’t put my mind to it ... maybe I am a dumb freak?

    According to the publication, the American destroyer and the Russian cruiser will fight on the high seas. At the same time, the ships do not know the location of each other and are intensely looking for the enemy.

    Reading such nonsense, I am always tempted to ask the authors of this nonsense - what will the rest of the armed forces of these countries do at least a few hours before the alleged battle? Will they sit on the podium and watch them like Roman citizens at the battle of two gladiators in the arena?

    But seriously. The only question is in the real picture of "visibility". Self-destruction of both ships is possible. Only on the 1144 side there is a displacement, constructive protection, and armor elements. If both sides have anti-ship missiles, then Zamvolt has nothing to catch the Granites with. And 1144 can easily try 96 Zur as a missile defense system at a distance of 70. Plus echelons of short-range air defense.
