Watch Russian Supersonic Anti-Ship Missile Destroy Mock Enemy Vessel

According to the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD), Russian jets, including Su-34 fighters, Su-30SM, Su-24, Su-34 and Su-25 attack aircraft, participated in a series of military exercises in the Caspian Sea along with the Russian Navy Caspian Flotilla about a week ago.

In total, about ten naval ships of the Caspian fleet and about 50 aircraft were involved in the war drills.

Days later, a video surfaced on social media showing a successful air-launch of a Kh-31 (Russian: Х-31; AS-17 ‘Krypton’) supersonic missile by a Su-34 fighter.

The Kh-31 is a supersonic air-to-surface anti-ship missile, which can reach speeds of Mach 3.5 (2,685 mph), making it remarkably hard for Western military vessels to protect against it.

The missile uses the target’s radio emission source and, depending on the model, can strike ships within a range of 15-110 kilometers (for the basic model Kh-31A) or 7.5-160 kilometers (for the Kh-31AD).

The 2-minute video shows a behind the scenes start to finish view of what it takes to air-launch the supersonic missile. The video begins with Russian military support staff instructing the Su-34 of a mock enemy ship that needs to be eliminated. About 25 seconds in, the fighter launches the missile. At the 42 second mark, the Kh-31 traveling at 3.5 Mach is seen slamming into the vessel, causing debris to fly into the air as the ship sinks.

Southern Military District (SMD) press officer Vadim Astafiev said the Russian Navy used a decommissioned vessel from the Caspian Flotilla for the exercise. The SMD is one of the five military districts of the Russian Armed Forces, with its jurisdiction primarily within the North Caucasus region of the country, and Russian bases in South Caucasian post-Soviet states.

One must ask: Why is Russia launching supersonic missiles in the Caspian Sea?… Well, Moscow is strengthening its naval deterrence against the US political elite who have been instrumental in disrupting the economic integration of Eurasia. In other words, Washington has been trying to ruin the One Belt One Road comprehensive strategy of Russia and China, as it now seems, Russia has had enough.

Mr Bear and the Dragon are more than a match for the decrepit and imploding anglozionazi empire of filth and even the hubris bloated vermin at Pentacon and the Washing town sewer creatures get that.

USSA'S next war is the one with itself, civil war reloaded.

Stage 1: Financial collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost.
Stage 2: Commercial collapse. Faith that “the market shall provide” is lost.
Stage 3: Political collapse. Faith that “the government will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 4: Social collapse. Faith that “your people will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 5: Cultural collapse. Faith in “the goodness of humanity” is lost.

Doesn't that stop Fitbit working though? Unlikely to be possible on an American ship.

Interestingly the faster the missile the less explosive it needs because it starts to become more of a giant bullet. The zio elite must be turning to their dirty tricks chest with more desperation because they know that even a flotilla of ships to attack Russia or a country with their protection can be sunk within about 5 minutes.

It's not so much the physical neutralisation of the US navy - most of it's kit is only good for soaking up money and attacking civilian targets, schools, hospitals, power stations etc - as it was developed by the Israelis - it's the world waking up to how weak the US military really is and then the US has a vassal rebellion on 200 fronts instead of just a few.

Yep, and we used slide rules to land a man on the moon, commie.  I was merely pointing out the appearance, nothing more.  In fact, I said NOTHING about their ability to war.  So, you must just be a fat ruskie fuck who likes sitting in your prison TV room who also likes to think he is all powerful and courageous.  Here's the message commie loser: "Learn to read."

What caught my eye was that laptop with a fucking serial cable hooked up to it.

While the laptop is not from those RadioShack days, it has got to be over 10 years old to have a serial port.

 

Frankly,  unless you make your own computer hardware,  including all the components,  and software, you are susceptible to a foreign nation.

The NSA and CIA and Jewsad probably have more back doors to those systems than Stormy Daniels.

i always laugh when i read comments about how stupid the russians are......twenty years ago the russians finally figured that spending all their money on planes and ships that can be almost instantly sunk by a missile was not their future...missiles are the future. our military only works against people that cant fight back.

 

the usa military know their hardware would instantly be destroyed but our military industrial complex steals trillions in taxes so who cares right..............

Well you're pretty f'n thick if you think I ever said they were stupid.  But, you probably don't have that great a level of reading comprehension.  Or, perhaps, you just want to project something into the discussion that wasn't there because you're insecure?  Either way, try not to put words in my mouth and I won't have to stick my boot up your ass.

Amero trash imbecile, are you aware that intelligent people who have build and maintain your civilization (and not just yours) and whom you owe everything for the pleasure of living in their societies are not athletic? You can always go to Africa and live among athletic people. You should in fact. You kind are nothing but parasites exploiting hospitality and society of nonathletic people. Left alone to build your own society, your athletic kind would be Africa, white Africa. And if you go live in Africa you'll become athletic as it's hot there as in hell, and the hotter it is, the more cut and less watery body you have.

I am neither fat or Russian, amero trash imbecile, so you are wrong on both accounts. It seems you have a habit of being wrong, which is understandable since you are an utter imbecile. I was referring to all those renown men - scientists you amero trash call them I believe. None of them was an athlete? Are you even aware of that amero trash? Even those people who maintain your civilization are not athletes, athletes like you are just parasites who are living in society of intelligentsia. They should have a regular rape session with athletes, musicians, actors and other trash. You must be put into your place, and being vermin your place is on the bottom of the societal hierarchy. Or your can always build your own athlete society or move to Africa. Or you can get raped and slaughtered via conquest right. That would be the best solution to our little problemo here I think. Regular rapes for athletes, musicians, actors, sportists, artists and entertainers. 98% tax on all you parasitize in the society of intelligentsia. How would you like them apples, athleto trash?

Well, that was nice of you to not deny the "eurotrash bitch" part, seeing how you denied everything else to attempt to prove your worthless point.  But, you got it all wrong about me being the athlete as I'm a old fat scientist myself.  Anyway, you sure have a serious hang up about athletes.  What's wrong Sparky, couldn't make the JV soccer team because you were a scrawny jew kid?  And, what is all this hate for Africa too, and fantasizing about rape?  You're one seriously messed up dude, chick, whatever.  And, you're certainly no "intelligentsia" as you fight like a bitter, jealous and seriously messed up eurobitch.

You are as scientist as Elisabeth Warren is native American. You got everything you have from euros and you have something against victims of your parasitism, you lowly "scientist" amero trash imbecile. You are just an amero trash clown imbecile. I don't hate Africa, imbecile. I like Africa way more than N America. I was merely pointing out where athleticism exists in purest form, that was from my first post (go read it again imbecile, a few times to understand properly). Obviously you are extremely stupid creature. Are you a nigger? Black, I believe you call yourselves.

Black negro scientist. That's like saying you are Japanese sprinter. But don't you worry now sport, there are many ways to deal with your parasitic kind. You know you wouldn't even walk free if others didn't die to free you. You are such lowly two-legged creatures that you weren't even able to free yourselves. Whiteys had to free negro athletes. Every other race and ethnicity was able to free itself at some point, and they are all building their own societies and civilizations, all except black negro... because negroes are parasites. Even you negro scientist prove it right here. Do you think because you were an athlete when you were young that whitey should appreciate your athleticism, that you should be honored and celebrated for it, and get some plenty of pretty white women and their pussies, hmm? eheheheheheh Seriously, you athletes ought to know your place. You will have to be put there eventually. You are just an entertaining trash, nothing else. I myself have always cherished special plans for you, for your kind. O yes. Lovely plans. How would you like to be a race with your proper realm, negro? I have often imagined how great would it be if negroes would be turned into dwarfs from legends of old. Dwell underground, under the surface, and build cities there. Build wonders just like dwarfs did. I am aware that you are no dwarf material mentally and spiritually, but I am hoping something more sophisticated than Tomb of Askia could be built by you. And if negroe fails, then negro dies... just like in the Nature. Those were always my greatest hopes for you and your kind.

Ships are nothing but floating coffins. It's been so for decades already, ever since 70s I think. No ship is able to defend itself even from a swarm of subsonic missiles (and there are quicker missiles than subsonic ones). Ships are slow stationary targets, nothing else. Luckily for you Russia is a masonic Illuminati run country, that's how you got away with forcing and enticing others on usd currency for so long.

Conventional war is for hapless third world countries who's resources we want to pillage and it's second purpose is for stimulating the MIC economy in the good ole US of A. However, I think no one really wants a nuclear war except for the lunatic NEOCON's who are easily manipulated by Israel intelligence.

How easy would it be to attach a nuclear plant with conventional weapons anywhere in the world and why hasn't  that happened? It didn't even happen in the Ukraine. Why? Because it will poison the earth and that's not good for business!
