Several Su-34 Russian fighter-bombers used Kh-35U anti-ship missiles to eliminate several ships in the course of some exercises in the Polygon Fleet of the Pacific.
According to the Ministry of Defense, the Su-34 attacked the positions of a naval group ‘of the enemy’ and launched the missiles both individually and in salvos.
In total, eight launches were made and all the missiles reached their targets. The anti-ship missile Kh-35U allows the elimination of maritime targets without their carriers entering the area of operation of air defence systems.
This is possible thanks to the range of these missiles, which can reach 250 kilometres. With this, the impact of a single Kh-35U is capable of destroying a modern Corvette.
The supply of aerial formations with the Kh-35U missiles began in 2014 and the equipping with these missiles of all modern aircraft and with a perspective of tactical aviation of Russia is planned.
