Experts called the consequences of the hit "Dagger" in the US aircraft carrier


Russian aeroballistic missiles 9-C-7760 of the world's first hypersonic aviation missile system 9-A-7660 "Dagger" (X-47M2 "Dagger") have been in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces since March 2018. Their first carriers were the MiG-31K long-range supersonic high-altitude all-weather fighter-interceptors (one missile each), and later the Tu-22M3M long-range supersonic missile-carrying bombers with a variable sweep wing (up to four missiles).


It should be noted that, according to sources in PJSC UAC, which unites the largest aircraft building companies in Russia, these missiles are a variant of the air-launched Iskander complex. At the same time, they can hit not only stationary objects on land, but also moving targets in the form of surface ships, including aircraft carriers.

Considering the incessant aggressive rhetoric of Washington against Moscow, the experts of the Internet publication "Military Review" decided to find out what would happen if at least one such missile hit an American aircraft carrier. The USS George HWBush (CVN-77) nuclear-powered aircraft carrier of the US Navy, which entered service in 2009, was taken as a conditional target.

This is a very large ship with a displacement of 97 thousand tons, up to 333 meters long and up to 77 meters wide. It carries 3200 crew members and 2480 aircraft wing personnel. The air group consists of about 90 aircraft and helicopters. The consequences of modeling the hit of the "Dagger" in the aircraft carrier were disastrous for the latter.

The experts immediately decided that there was no point in striking the ship's superstructure, because the main function of an aircraft carrier was to be a floating airfield. Therefore, the wide deck of the aircraft carrier was taken as the point of contact of the rocket, under which there are 2 A4W nuclear reactors, with a capacity of 550 MW each.

Experts have calculated that the 9-C-7760 missile, with a warhead of 500 kg and flying at a speed of about Mach 12, will not leave the aircraft carrier any chance. The air defense / missile defense system of the aircraft carrier and the accompanying AUG is simply unable to react to this missile in time, so it is guaranteed to hit the aircraft carrier.

Another question is how successful the hit itself will be. If none of the reactors is damaged, then the aircraft carrier can remain buoyant, but will cease to perform its main function, and for a very long time, since the destruction will be colossal. If at least one of the reactors is damaged, this will lead to the inevitable sinking of the ship, since no one will drag the aircraft carrier to the port with the molten reactor zone.

    12 swings. This is 4 km per second. It starts from 1000 km, and is visible well - it means 250 seconds or 4 minutes at least flies.

    They will definitely not have time to react. No electronic warfare, no radio-reflective smoke, no air defense system.

      At such speeds, a plasma cloud forms around the object in the air, which absorbs radio emission. Radars are useless.

        You are special.
        I did not check it myself. But on military-themed sites, the opinion of the radar workers is completely opposite. In an interview with the military too.
        Plasma on radars shines like the sun ...

        Maybe they're lying?

      In addition to a cloud of plasma, Iskander's missiles are also distinguished by the ability to produce chaotic, unpredictable maneuvers.
      Well, the speed. Modern missile defense systems of potential adversaries are not designed for such target speeds, they will not have time to react.

        By maneuvers - everything is limited here by the permissible parameters of maneuvering. With super-sound, and especially with hyper-sound, you can't maneuver much. It will be blown away by air currents. They wrote and cited data on near-military sites.
        For example, all super-piloting at the air show is at speeds up to 700 km / h. up to 2 / 3M.

        And "not calculated" - no one has been shooting at the rocket itself for a long time. They create a cloud of fragments in front of the target, where it flies in. Several rockets, usually in pairs in the video ... Which is much easier.

        It is not for nothing that anonymous experts have a skiff ...

          Any missile defense and air defense system has one of the main performance characteristics: the maximum speed of an intercepted target. Even VIKI has it. And the strike missile has a top speed.
          And if the second value is greater than the first - alas ...

            It's right. But only if in pursuit. If you meet ... then the task is not at all the same ...

    In a word, a multi-billion dollar colossus with two air regiments on board is destroyed by one hypersonic missile worth a thousand times less! Hyper effective weapon!

      The French have the only aircraft carrier, why offend ... Here are the exercises with the target. similar in all to an aircraft carrier and ships of the first rank (movement, maneuverability, air defense security, etc.) is necessary, then you won't have to guess ...

    ... the consequences of the "Dagger" hitting the US aircraft carrier ...

    On the technical side, there are options. And with the political, most likely without consequences. Will go out to the people of some sort of Trumpo-Biden and wiping away a stingy tear will say that he drowned. And in Russia, everyone will pretend that they are not at home, they have been at their dacha for two weeks like digging potatoes in between to prepare for the next elections. But, something tells, everything will be wrong and the consequences are difficult to describe.
