Russia’s X-31 supersonic missile destroys target ship in Caspian Sea. Video

» Politics

A video of the launch of the X-31 supersonic anti-ship missile from the Su-34 bomber appeared on the Internet.

In addition to Su-34 fighters, Su-30SM, Su-24 and Su-34 and Su-25 attack aircraft also took part in military exercises that took place in the Caspian Sea about a week ago. In total, more than ten ships of the Caspian fleet and about 50 aircraft were involved in the drills. A target vessel was successfully destroyed.

Su-34 is a Russian 4++ generation fighter-bomber. The fighter is designed to strike enemy ground and air targets. The aircraft is equipped with state-of-the-art means of electronic warfare.

The Su-34 was put into operation in 2014. As of January of this year, more than a hundred fighter-bombers of this type have been assembled in the Russian Federation.

Russia used Su-34 aircraft during military operations in Syria.

  1. There is no super sonic capacity shown in this video. Could have easily been shown.
    I suppose speed can be measured if there is enough discernible water movement to compare, but .. this appears to be propaganda for the masses.
    A proper demonstration could be done. I compare this to the dude perfect youtube channel.

    • Why do you think the actual hit was shown at a distance. They used to have hypersonic missile test (Indian I think) on Youtube which was taken down. At those velocities the missile cannot be seen. I would not want to in a surface warship.
