MiG-31 Jets Armed With Kinzhal Hypersonic Missiles Carried Out 89 Patrols Over Caspian And Black Seas


MiG-31 Jets Armed With Kinzhal Hypersonic Missiles Carried Out 89 Patrols Over Caspian And Black Seas

A MiG-31 fighter jet armed with a Kinzhal hypersonic missile

MiG-31 fighter jets armed with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles have carried out 89 patrols over the Caspian and Black Seas, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stressed during a Defence Ministry gathering on December 18.

Shiogu said that the patrols were carried in the framework of the experimental combat duty of the new hypersonic weapon.

The Kinzhal is a nuclear-capable air-launched hypersonic missile. It can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads.

    What were they blurring out? The intake ducts of the missile?

    • FlorianGeyer

      Possibly what they don’t want NATO to see OR nothing at all and that NATO will worry about what they cannot see :)

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      Perhaps the engine/propulsion or guidance system.

    • Vitex

      Perhaps something rude written in Russian…..

  • Nosferatu

    Hell yeah

    • Rob

      China and Russia must jointly develop an aerospace ship of length 160 meters and of height 25 meters for launching satellites, for transportation in entire solar system and for cleaning debris from space.

      For such a ship the test runway length would be 20 kms and width would be 200 meters.

  • Russia doesn’t have the industrial capacity to do this, they can only field a pitifully small number of aircraft with missiles (just repeating the tripe I hear on U.S. military boards, as if it would take more than one Kinzhal to sink an missile ship or aircraft carrier).

    • Nosferatu

      CNN told you?

      • Jens Holm

        Its well known for the whole world and You can read it in many versions at the Internet. Doont You have internet or only some antenna taking CNN.

        • Nosferatu

          It is well known among those that read more, that what is well known for the world (you probably mean USA and EU anyway) is in most cases product of western propaganda

    • Michael Morgan

      Did you notice the “nuclear capable” phrase..

      • FlorianGeyer

        Oh Yes.

        That rather checkmates the FUKUS Cyber Warfare clowns.

        Reality is inviolate :)

      • Fred Summers

        Yes, that is the key to understanding what it is all about. There is not a cat in hells chance of any of those missiles (outside of an exercise or test) being fitted with a conventional warhead.
        Those missiles are part of the nuclear deterant, and when fitted to the supersonic Mig 31 can be considered as missiles already in the air.
        They will be used to destroy the US and British so called anti-missile shield (also missile launching) platforms within range, and any air defence radar facilities or port facilities too.

        The nations hosting US anti-missile systems and UK weapons were warned they would be nuked in the event of a war.

        It would be very sensible for Russia to use modern neutron type nuclear warheads (ie high heat with low residual radiation) against such targets as likely there would be just a very small window available and a one-shot-one-kill ratio would be essential.
        Bastion (also nuclear capable) and BAL would be used against shipping.

        • Michael Morgan

          They will not be used against a “shield” Fred, They will not even be used on “buffer” countries. They will be used against cities, against mass populations, against all those targets that would consider themselves “safe” in a war where others are supposed to do the dying. If I was to guess the first to go would be New York with Washington a few seconds later.

    • You can call me Al

      Go back and write on the boards; “Maybe; but at least the Russky one work and hit the target”.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Bullseye :)

    • Oh… I reckon they have at least half a dozen?
      And it will take only ONE of those new SARMAT to take out Texas!

      • Patriotic_White_American

        The Samart is kiddie shit compared to the load out on an Ohio Class sub

        The payload is 5% in comparison

        And don’t get me started on that Russian Boereing rust bucket with a tiny missile payload

        • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

          Comparing a submarine to a airlaunched hypersonic missile?

          Guess what, my washingmachine is Better at cleaning clothes than your freezer.

          That rustbucket is way more airworthy and have clocked more hours than your average US stuff

          • Patriotic_White_American

            All ICBM’s are hypersonic dumbo, it’s been like that since the 60’s

            It’s been like that since the 60’s, keep up

            The Ohio carries 24 ICBM’s carrying more than 20 times the power of a Sarmat which would probably get intercepted anyways

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            No US ICBM and SLBM have the power of the Sarmat stupid!..even the “peace maker” and Minuteman was less powerful than SS-18 satan

          • Patriotic_White_American

            But 24 SLBM’s in a single platform with 14 MIRV’s each make it look like kiddie shit.

          • j. jaxson

            white americans should fight wars for for israeli scumbags.
            also russia is pretty white last time i checked.
            more white than a lot of jew -mericans.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Putin is he biggest shill of all though

            He wouldn’t even condemn Israel after IL20 lol

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            The Akula Typhoon class Sub also has 24 SLBM Bulava. Russia has one operational but in case of conflict can put another 2 in service..beside the new Moniya Subs

          • Patriotic_White_American

            With slower less range missiles with an inferior payload and shit stealth

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            you believe your own lies

          • Patriotic_White_American

            It’s confirmed fact lol.

            You just look retarded whenever I present facts to you.

            The Ohio Class submarine shits on Russian equivalents

            Trident II travels at Mach 24 during reentry.

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            Sarmat Satan 2 ICBM are far superior than any US intercontinental missile

          • Patriotic_White_American

            They’re inferior and fluffed up Russian hype. They have inferior submarines like the Borei which can only fire 6 MIRV’s on its missiles

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            the new BulavaM have 10 MIRV

          • Patriotic_White_American

            10 is less than 14.

            100 kt is less than 475kt

            Math is hard, I know

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            TSAR BOMB is more than all US trident missile..

          • Patriotic_White_American

            No lol

            And only 5 Kt is needed to destroy a city

          • Lomunac

            Hahaha, Intercepted with WHAT, Patriot MK3 on which all but you gave up, the kiddie shit that downed a whoping 1/42 Saddam’s SCUD’s, and that your own scientists claim would MISS 87% of Bula a missiles (in my post above I mentioned their total number) and 69% of Topol M’s??? Hahaha…

          • Patriotic_White_American

            S400 got humiliated by a 40 year old Israeli planein Latakia lol

          • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

            Once again, what is the point of comparing a airlaunched missile to a sub?

            No body is talking about ICBM´s here.
            Theres no problem in getting a returning ICBM/MIRV to go hypersonic, gravity does all the job for you.

            Now, getting a airlaunched missile to go hypersonic is a different story, it requires brain and countless of tests and trials.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Are you retarded?

            SLBM’s launches from an Ohio sub are hypersonic nuclear missiles.

            What part of this comparison is confusing you?

            Air launched weapons are easy to find and detect. Subs aren’t

          • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

            “All ICBM’s are hypersonic dumbo,”
            That is your words, not mine.

            This article is about airlaunched missiles, not ICBM´s or SLBM´s

            “Air launched weapons are easy to find and detect”
            It depends on several parameters, and you have to shoot it down next, something US systems and Israeli systems is having a hard time doing, and thats is just last/current gen missiles/rockets.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            I was responding to a comment about Sarmat, fail.

            The Arrow 3 is the best interceptor on Earth.

            S400 junk can’t intercept anything. Arrow 3 shot down a hypersonic missile already.

          • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

            The Arrow 3 is the best on earth according to those who earn a fat living from it?
            Or according to you because Israel and US made it?

            The best reviewer of your weapons are your enemy.

            Soviet Union/Russia is the master of airdefence, and they will always be that.

            You americans also praised your shitty Patriot system, wich failed so many times to stop saddams Scud missiles and the radar had serious programming failures going to standby mode without letting anyone knowing about it.
            And Israels Iron Dome have failed to intercept old 122mm rockets, so whenever those two countrys says they have developed a new system, i dont think much about it.

            And US made CWIS used on ships and as basedefences also failed intercepting 122mm rockets and other ballistics missiles.

            That is facts, nothing else, just pure undeniable facts.
            Sales brochure and reality is often 180

            I have lost friends in Iraq to shitty useless US made crap that never worked or failed miserably, so i dont believe anything from a government or manufacture when talking about effectiveness of weapons before i see it with my own eyes, and especially not from a warmongering military institution like US.
            Calling it America would be a disgrace to the rest of the continent.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Masters of air defense when they’re shooting down IL20’s 😂

            A 40 year old Israeli jet humiliated the S400 over Latakia

            Arrow 3 intercepts hypersonic missile, this was proven in combat

            Russia still has a Turkish dick up it’s ass

          • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

            It wasn russia shooting down the Il-20
            The F-16 was just the platform for the ECM system, so the platforms age is irrelevant.

            The Patriot also got lucky some times, but it needs to be lucky everytime, not just one.

            Russia acts how she want to as she want to, shes just not as a warmongering hyprocrytic lying gov as US.

            I have never met an US citizen i would not buy a meal and offer my bed for the night, but your trash gov is just disgusting, like many other gov including my own, and the worst part is that the ordinary citizen is turning more and more into those government.

        • Lomunac

          And Ohio is a kiddie shit compared to Bulava’s launched from one of 8 Borei type subs, each except very first one equiped with 20 (each packing 10 missiles), thats over 1500 missiles total just on their latest nuclear deterant sub!!

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Math is hard for you huh lol

            Ohio has 24 missiles with 14 warheads each, all higher payloads than shitty Buluva

            Russia loses again 😃

          • Lomunac

            Better then your ameritard, and sure they are more powerfull with a whoping 16 740 ton displacement compared to Typhoon class 48 000!!!
            And they have 24 missiles with UP TO 8 missiles in each, so at most, your math is bad, same as that Trident shit…

          • Patriotic_White_American

            A giant tub armed with less missiles, with shitty range, payload and speed

            The Trident 2 embarrasses those garbage Russian missiles

          • Lomunac

            Yeaaah, I don’t think your retard math works in real world pimpleface, UP TO 8 means usualy less, so ALWAYS 10 in 20 = 200 but 2-4-6-8 in 24 can mean 4 times less, half less, at best 192 which is LESS THEN 200 AMERITARD!!!!
            And sure thing your 3 DECADE old rust buckets have an advantage over top noth tech just a few months or years old, keep dreaming pimpleface…

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Top notch tech like the Mighty Kursk


            Russians can’t build subs, they’re death trap pieces of shit

          • Lomunac

            Ok tard, for one Kursk wasn’t a Borei nor Yasen type sub, the years old stuff, oldest is like 7 or so, it’s decades old, and two a torpedo exploded inside it’s ammo dump, NOT A SINGLE SUB SURVIVES THAT!!
            Did you find your pieces of shit that sank and their lost nuclear payload? Hahaha, offcourse not cause you can’t since you aint good at anything!!

    • Jesus

      Russia has over 200 MiG 31 BSM and BM versions are the latest improvements, the K version that carries Khinzhal should number about 12 by the end of this year.
      Khinzhal can be deployed by T22, that carries 4 missiles, and possibly by Tu 160.
      Khinzhal is a modified version of Iskander missile that is available in large quantities, producing them by the hundreds or thousands would be relatively easy.
      No US ship built has taken a kinetic hit at Mach 3 or Mach 10, they are thin skinned, they will be easily sent to the bottom of the sea or ocean.

      • Jens Holm

        The russian military capasity is low as well as the rest. Thats why even they should be big, they are much lower then they could.

        You see it well for their newer tanks and airplanes. Those are almost handmade and even expensive in design. Ny that they are slow producers and hardly can effort to use them themselves.

        As long as Russia only has some few more or less experimenthal missiles or aircrafts, thats no problem.

        Much better to have a lot of american F22s being many and reliable. Russia can hit them. Well some… and the rest. No.

        • Lomunac

          Hahaha, F22 reliable??? Did it stop poisoning its pilots DECADE AND A HALF after entering service? Nope!!

      • verner

        good but better yet to send a few on tel aviv with kindest regards from the rest of the world. iron dome to iron doom, couldn’t be better.

  • John McClain

    I would remind folks, it doesn’t take an “armada” to defend one’s nation, it only takes a million, to conquer the world. Russia has not sunk all its debt into waging wars, to keep the ruble “reserve currency”, and they don’t have bases over the entire world, all of which become “albatross’s” if we lose the ability to pay the troops, fund maintenance, and keep full bunkers of offensive weapons.
    The not long ago photo of “America’s air armada” is meaningless, the fact is, all our operational combat aircraft operate at the edge of failure all the time now, pilot training for new pilots takes place in aircraft sent back for rework, rebuilding, and training takes place for the short time of testing and evaluation, ensuring up to specs, and then the bird goes back to war, the pilot back to the simulator.
    We have F-35’s deployed, at great expense, with little value at the present, but costing us out of building more, and wearing these few, using up their lives in a few years, rather than couple decades.
    We are extremely over-extended, if we trigger a war, we must win immediately, or we will lose decisively, for the inability to move our assets to best defend and attack. We barely can pay the cost of maintaining current, very limited combat operations, only those jihadists command, and we certainly can’t take on a new war, we never could afford to do to Syria, what we did, and now we pay to stay there, with our hands, effectively tied, so we can’t even excuse it on the notion we fight bad guys.
    It is only slightly less expensive to sit on our ass, than to fly missions, and make our plays, however we are at a loss to fly, not knowing much at all about Russia’s capabilities, and we don’t do ground ops, without air support. We spend millions a day to do nothing, yet there are no plans yet, to “slip out of there with minimal expense”, I expect when D.C. realizes it is done, they will try to look like “leaving with a win”, and if so, we will lose aircraft, troops, and perhaps enter a new war, one we can’t afford to even look at, much less pursue.
    I hope the most pessimistic advisers are at the top of their game, and are convincing, and we do “slither out”, because I want our troops home, alive, not only from Syria, but most of the other places they are. The writing on the wall isn’t handwriting, it’s spray painted, multi-colored, ten foot high letters, “you’re broke, you’ve lost your moral compass, go home, now, before it’s too late”.
    I have far too much respect for Russia and for China, to even consider war, in any way at all, and I know far too much about electronics, and the incredible advances Russia and China have made, while we are only on the edge of it. I spent two decades, serving as a Marine, in electronics, and know we are way behind in technology, because we’ve spent far too much on war, and have no money for research and development. The world will go “multi-polar” with or without us, and we probably have a limited window of offer to join, before we become a pariah Nation.

      71% Of Military Age Americans Too Sick To Join, Study Says

      71% of Military Age Americans Too Sick to Join, Study Says

      By Brandon Turbeville, Natural Blaze

      The United States is now facing a security crisis the likes of which it has never faced before. Although we are awaiting the attempts to blame it on them, it’s hard to see how the State Department or the corporate media can pin this on on the Russians.

      According to a new study by the Heritage Foundation, nearly 71% of young U.S. citizens are ineligible to serve in the military. To be more specific, out of 34 million people, between the ages of 17 and 24, more than 24 million are unable to join the military. Sixty percent of those ineligible to join are ineligible due to health problems or physical fitness. Around one-third are too obese.

      Indeed, 27% of young Americans are “too overweight for military service.”

      “The obesity issue is the most troubling because the trend is going in the wrong direction…by 2020 it could be as high as 50%,” said Major General Allen Batschelet, former Commander of U.S. Army Recruiting Command “back in 2015, “which means only two in ten would qualify to join the Army.”

      Other common health concerns are hearing and eyesight problems, asthma and mental illness.

      The study also shows that a quarter of those unfit for military service, are due to intelligence factors and are unable to complete their high school education and lack a “basic understanding of written and cognitive skills…to complete an organized program.”

      The research points out that these individuals are considered unfit despite the fact that the military routinely accepts people who do not complete their high school education and “rarely pass the armed forces qualification test.”

      Another 10% were ineligible due to a criminal record.

      The national security issue comes to play when one realizes that this stunning commentary on the intellectual, mental and physical health of the United States will lead to a very serious shortage of recruits for the military, meaning that the U.S. military will suffer from a lack of manpower.

      All ready, the U.S. Army is having a hard time meeting its 2018 goal of enlisting 80,000 volunteers.

      Army Major General Malcolm Frost, Commander of the Army’s Initial Military Training Command, publicly stated in 2017, that “I would argue that the next existential threat that we have… is the inability to man our military.”

      One highly important point to mention, is that the southern states, who have traditionally supplied the military with the largest amount of recruits, are experiencing even more concerning health issues than their Northern and Western counterparts.

      South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas are “significantly less fit, and consequently are more likely to encounter training related injuries and recruits from other U.S. states,” according to recent research conducted by the Citadel, the U.S. Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association.

      The southern states mentioned above make up more than 37% of new recruits.

      Thus, Americans’ poor health, dropping IQ and mental instability have reached such a proportion that it is now a national security issue.

      While there are many other factors at play in regards to national security and the ability to man the military, such as an expansive military presence across the world and a constant state of warfare – America must begin to make drastic changes in its food supply, healthcare and culture unless it wants to do to itself what no outside power is capable of doing.

          The Simulacra Democracy

          by JOHN STEPPLING

          … a nation in which 87 percent of eighteen- to twenty-four year olds (according to a 2002 National Geographic Society/Roper Poll survey) cannot locate Iran or Iraq on a world map and 11 percent cannot locate the United States (!) is not merely “intellectually sluggish.” It would be more accurate to call it moronic, capable of being fooled into believing anything …”

          — Morris Berman

          I cannot remember U.S. culture ever being quite so compromised by ruling class control. Hollywood turns out one jingoistic and militaristic and racist film and TV show after another. Corporate news is completely controlled by the same forces that run Hollywood. It is the complete capitulation of the liberal class to the interests of the increasingly fascistic U.S. elite. And this didn’t start with Donald Trump. Certainly in its current incarnation it goes back at least to Bill Clinton, and really it goes back to the end of World War Two. The ideological trajectory was formed under the Dulles brothers and military industrial complex — representing U.S. business interests and exhibiting a demand for global hegemony. But once the Soviet Union collapsed, the project was accelerated and intensified.

            The UK is close behind the US in ignorance these days, especially amongst the young. I use the term ignorance with a small ‘i ‘ as the education system is blighted with politically correct nonsense. One example being a school that has now placed Sanitary Towel disposal bins in the male toilets in order to have gender neutrality :)

            The population can be educated with knowledge of merit but instead the schools , TV, Press and Radio, pander to the diet of Trivia demanded by those who rule over us.

            are only affordable by rich kids….

            In Switzerland Public School quality is better than the Privates
            done for dropouts and foreigners…
            Excellent Universities cost about 500.-CHF/Semester

            I 100% agree with you.

            In the UK University education has been degraded by the inclusion of mundane degree courses that were better served by Technical Colleges or , better still, not at all .

            Only about 17% of UK University students ever repay their extortionate student loans , because they have not earned enough income with their Degree.


            Past British teachers have taught children to read ,write and add up in schools deep in the African Bush.

            Today British Schools are failing to do that is many cases. WHY

      Personally I prefer the bodybags – don’t see why there should be no penalty for occupying, invading and destroying the countries of others and murdering families thousands of miles away from your own home : countries and people that never did a damn thing to you. (Not a thing. Nada. Zilch. Buggerall. Not even a smell.) To say nothing about what’s deserved for dropping an average of 121 drone bombs on CIVILIANS in 8 foreign countries DAILY. …. Did you know your “non-target” rate for those CIVILIANS (mommies, daddies, kiddies, babies, grammas and granpas) killed is 98%? Wow hey! Look at that! You got a distinction in killing the wrong people.

      And just to put the cherry on the cake, all that, plus feeding people you’ve jailed for no charge let alone conviction their dinner to them up the arse – you’ve been doing this – every day – for 20 years. You folk are seriously lower than the cockroaches.

      Bottoms up~!

        Pentagon acknowledges that post 9/11, it has wasted 1,500 billion dollars on wars




        According to an estimate published by the Pentagon, the cost of the wars initiated since 11 September 2001, under the framework of the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy exceeds 1 500 billion dollars [1]. The most substantial costs were incurred during the second presidential mandate of George W. Bush and during the first mandate of Barack Obama.

        Brown University challenges these statistics. This university considers that the real costs are several times the sum stated. Brown thinks that they total around 5 600 billion dollars [2].

        Presented as a «global war against terrorism», all these conflicts in actual fact were aimed at implementing of the strategy of the US Admiral Arthur Cebrowski and destroying the very structures of states and societies in the countries of that part of the world not tied into the global economy.

          but it will sure as a clucking bell, bankrupt them. and for that, the quicker the better!

        • Is that included in the $21T the Pentagon “lost” – or in addition to?

          • AlexanderAmproz

            I didn’t know, but it isn’t important, thousands of Billions are flying
            left and right to fill-up the deep power and their satellites pockets….

            The heart of the system is mass’s destruction weapons industry….

            Meanwhile the priorities should be the Environment protection
            to produce enough heathy food for all, but Sea’s, Soils and Air is under
            threat compromising the life on the Planet for the happy few money
            to be able to entertain “Slavery” for Pilfering’s !

            The forgotten priorities should be an healthy food, Health-Cares,
            and Education for all…. in a Healthy Environment !

            My home town voted Social Services and Mandatory free Quality
            School for all in 1535 and 1536…
            Since then, Never anybody was abandoned on the sidewalks…. !

            US American Population didn’t have it today,
            but enough weapons becoming obsolete to destroy many times
            the Planet with fire.
            and can’t stope accidental Forests fire at home…. !

            Do humans dreams and target is an inhabitable HELL to migrate
            in the unliveable Mars ?

        First off, Shawna, I don’t bother with “unfunded liabilities” because they only count if one expects a Nation to survive it’s accounting. While we don’t fully service our debt, we ensure we can’t survive such, so they are meaningless.
        I was born in California, in 57, moved to Barcelona, Spain a little over one, and didn’t return to the states until going on six. I got eye surgery, correcting my skew eye, giving me vision in my left eye, probably the youngest ever, by the surgeon who invented the corrective surgery. I learned life from the Spanish masons building a new apartment building next to ours, stone structure, and chose my profession at that time, fascinated by the blacksmiths, and their creations.
        I was shocked to see America, at five, it was nothing like I’d read, and the best my Dad could give me was “son, we’ve got the worst government in all the world….except for all the others.
        I’ve spent my whole life fighting to see “the federated republic” restored, with little success. I was born into an atheist family, I came to believe while in diapers, held my faith through my teens, despite my failings, and am deeply and firmly convicted of my Faith.
        When Americans write to give their own examples of what we know our criminal government is doing, perhaps you should consider how many other oppressed people were willing, and able to put the facts out, acknowledge the truths, ugly as they may be, and interact with others, for the purpose of educating some, and responding to critiques.
        We had all our, “American’s” money stolen by FDR, having been fleeced for decades with inflation, and capped with complete theft. Our money supply was inflated 65% in October, 33, the world has been taxed by our inflation since the second world war, averaging two percent per anum, but we, the workers, are taxed both before that, and during that, and after than, as it ever increases, and we can’t hold “real money”, gold and silver remain “commodities” for profit, with the exception of half a dozen states which have declared it “money, as stated in the constitution”, and there, the dollar is variable, not the real money.
        The next empire is always bigger, harsher, and usually faster to rise, and fall, than the previous, just as children of the wealthy generally manage the wealth, as best they can, and their own children expend all of it, in the end.
        We maintained our Constitution as “rule of law over government” for 32 years. Four founding members, President, each for two terms, and each preventing straying that was attempted. When Mr. Monroe was elected, we returned to British common law for corporations, established the goal “empire”, via the Monroe Doctrine, and we have followed through, true all the way.
        We control our government less than British Subjects controlled theirs, before we broke loose. The world agreed “war is a crime against peace” in Nuremberg, The world didn’t stop waging war, just because that world war was over. Most people are at best, ethical, meaning they discern good from evil. Few people will make the hard effort, and live moral. That is living for good, and eschewing evil, with care, deliberation, and repentance, when we fall short. I wish I could give you better, but I’d have to lie. If I were single and healthy, I’d be in Syria right now, with the Syrians. When it was secure, I’d leave with the Russians, because I believe they hold the promise for Christianity for the future. I care far more about God than about anything else, having served Him in some pretty terrible places and circumstances.
        I’ve been writing against my government since grade school, better than fifty years and more. I still believe we shall fall.
        God Bless the Peacemakers,
        Semper Fidelis,

    For the NATO to exercise freedom of navigation rights in the Black Sea, they should realize they are in a kill zone from Bastion costal batteries and Khinzhal air to surface missiles. Their only way out is the bottom of the sea.

    • FlorianGeyer

      The bright young things of NATO Intelligence will likely say that the ‘ship ‘ was not sunk as it is really a submarine in disguise and will be home soon.

    • Jens Holm

      All the world has known that for many, many years.

  • Patriotic_White_American

    lol that fake junk has never been fired on camera at a target

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      What is your point, that if CNN or Fox have not shown anything its not true?

      Its not fake, its real and its working, opposite the US trash of a F-35.

      • Patriotic_White_American

        Nothing from Russia works
        Like that shitty SU57 whose stealth technology is hiding behind the smoke clouds coming from the burned out engines

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          You might be right, but it is odd how the Russians are smugly ambivalent to U.S. political pressure… Does that suggest something, do you think?

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Smugly ambivalent?

            Russians head is up the US asshole puttering around in its internal politics

          • Lomunac

            They are playing your ELECTIONS with puppet strings, I think they have something else up your assholes, not their heads (not the upper ones atleast)…

        • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

          Like anything cutting edge from US works.
          Ive have done tour in Iraq and several times we actually locked away us made stuff because it did not work.

          We would rather do without than with us made stuff.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      Perhaps the Russians will do another demonstration in a similar way they demonstrated the destructive power of a Kh-35 fired from a Su-30SM, inside of Syria’s waters?

  • Vitex

    You’d be dead and you wouldn’t even know it.

    Russian on speed – or is ot alcohol again ?

  • Sinbad2

    As Einstein told us Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.
    So if you created, put an object in space and then arranged for it to travel at hypersonic speeds, by using gravity you wouldn’t need a warhead, the impact of the object would supply all the explosive power needed, without any radiation. The Tunguska destruction was caused by a meteor with a size of 60 and 190 meters. A moon base would be the perfect launch site.
