In the Chinese media: "Dagger" is the most "mature" hypersonic weapon in Russia

38

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the basis of the non-nuclear deterrent forces of the Russian Federation will be hypersonic weapon land, sea and air based. Among these weapons, the Dagger missile systems occupy a special place.


The Chinese portal Sina discusses the characteristics and capabilities of the Russian "Daggers".

The Chinese media write that the air-launched missile system in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces is capable of hitting any target on the territory of the European continent.

And although in the Russian Federation the ground-based complex Avangard and the sea-based Zircon are also classified as hypersonic, the Chinese author believes that it is precisely the Dagger that is the most "mature" hypersonic weapon in Russia. It is precisely this that is the most dangerous for the West. Due to the high speed and maneuverability of these missiles, modern air defense systems of NATO countries are not capable of intercepting them. Moreover, this weapon has significant destructive power even without a nuclear warhead.

The Chinese author writes that the idea of ​​Russian gunsmiths to combine the world's only heavy supersonic fighter-interceptor MiG-31 with the Iskander ground-based operational-tactical missile system led to the emergence of Russia's most advanced and effective weapon - the Dagger air-launched hypersonic missile system.

It should be recalled that at the moment Russia is the only country in the world with its army armed with hypersonic missile systems (weapons capable of reaching speeds of more than 5 M).

    .... mature and it is possible to expand its line with smaller calibers and weights. for armament Su30 and 35 and 34. A couple of pieces with a decent range of the carrier ..

      The mattresses have HIMARS, caliber 300, range 300. But long contagion and not hypersonic. All the trick is in the MiG-31, we were able to put a ballistic missile on a fighter. Nobody just has such a Fighter.
      And the rocket, even if they do, will be carried by slow bombers. I mean, a serious 500+ caliber.

        When launched with a Su35 or Tu22M3M, for example, everything will be the same .... The MiG31 was singled out as a cargo-lifting aircraft (above the sound one) and keep in mind that it is not being produced, so far only Su35S (with the corresponding radar) is available for replacement. And the Americans (Jews) have missiles (both BR and KR) for F35, F15 and F16 (mass) aircraft with a range of 300-1000 km. High precision. but we do not. And all these F35, F15 and F16 are fighters at the same time ..... and the MiG31 (Dagger carrier) is an unarmed transport aircraft.

          are you laughing? Any fighter will turn into a transport plane if you attach a rocket with the characteristics of a dagger to it. I doubt that the F-35 and F-16 will ever be able to get off the ground with such a rocket and full refueling. The intestine is thin.
          This is where size matters. Both the rockets and the carrier.
          For range with speed, you have to pay with mass.

          Actually, we also have the following: X-31, X-35 (adapted including for strikes against ground targets), X-59 ... the X-50 is being developed.
          A "Dagger" in fact - a substitute for the previously forbidden for us, MRBM. With nuclear warheads, he completely replaces them and makes them even more mobile (in basing).

          And yet this is a fighter, the radar was not removed from it, but the explosive missiles can be suspended ... only it is unlikely that it will be useful to him - it will shoot from a safe distance.

    =======
    Well, "Vanguard" is a little different = this is a means of delivering nuclear warheads to an intercontinental range ..... "Zircon" is just completing tests, and "Dagger" is already in the army. True, the last thing I heard was that there were only 10 aircraft in the "experimental military operation", and then there was silence .... Maybe someone heard what?

    "It should be recalled that at the moment Russia is the only country in the world that has hypersonic missile systems in its army." What a fig? The dagger is hypersonic, like any ballistic missile of comparable range. In the same China, all sorts of DF-21, DF-26 are not hypersonic, are they?

      .... no, ... warheads of ballistic missiles entering the dense layers of the atmosphere with deceleration up to 3000 km per hour. that is, about 2.5M ... The dagger maintains speed throughout the entire flight path to the target

      China does not have such carriers, there is no analogue of the MiG-31, there is no analogue of the Tu-22M3M, and these carriers are the delivery + booster stage. from what they launch their rockets. will they be from their H-6 or what ?? Of course, he can deliver, but it will not work to overclock the rocket to 2,3 M wassat

    We are looking forward to shots with Zircon. The Israeli comrades probably satisfied their curiosity in the video on February 23, the Dagger hits the target from above, at an angle of 90 degrees. MO we have such entertainers, maybe it was not a Dagger at all. But I would look and look, beautifully !

    Unfortunately, there is no reason for joy.
    We know almost nothing about this complex, well,
    except that he is "unparalleled", and we can
    just guess that the complex is working
    only for targets with previously known coordinates.

      in the public domain on it there is an "all-weather" seeker. (probably ARLGSN) and shooting at moving targets (ships).
      Information from our own military.
      In general, even the type of engine is hidden, but there was a mention of direct flow.
      Well, to fly the rocket itself 800 km at a speed of 10M, maneuvering along the route and get from the KVO 2 meters - such a thing is really unique and the adversaries do not yet have it.

      In short, if you have no reason for joy, then why suddenly a reason for sadness? And they don't talk about the complex for obvious reasons.

              What is the problem ? In target designation? So at a distance of 800 km they shoot into the square, where it "lit up" and there it will find the right trough itself. For it will not crawl far away during the flight.
