Why is the Russian Aerospace Forces regularly shocked by the American destroyer "Donald Cook"


A few days ago, the USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) USS destroyer once again entered the Black Sea through the Turkish straits from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea. Since, in accordance with the Montreux Convention, American ships can stay in the Black Sea area for no more than 21 days, the US Sixth Fleet carries out their regular rotation. The Russian Aerospace Forces greeted "Donald Cook" rather unfriendly, which is not surprising.


According to the available According toOn that day, six Russian planes, four fighters and two bombers took off in Crimea at once. Su-27 and Su-30SM simulated an air attack on an American destroyer, electronic warfare means were used to suppress the Kuka air defense system, and then the Su-24M went to finish off. Fortunately, no one was hurt. DDG-75 changed course and instead of Crimea, to whose sea borders he was clearly going to approach dangerously, he took the direction to the Romanian port of Constanta.

Immediately after the publication of this information in the domestic blogosphere, heated discussions began about who would actually "make" whom, an American URO destroyer or Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft. The fact that the Donald Cook had already become a "victim of an air attack" from the Russian Su-24 in 2014 added some piquancy to what happened. Then the outdated aircraft with removed weapons 12 times in a row imitated calls to the ship, while, as reported, the destroyer's air defense / missile defense system was suppressed by the Khibiny electronic warfare system, which made the vaunted Aegis ineffective.

And now history repeated itself. Already not one, but six Russian planes at once depicted the sinking of "Donald Cook". A discussion immediately began about how realistic this was. Americanophiles quite rightly point out that the DDG-75 is a representative of the best-in-class URO destroyer, which is an integral part of the US global missile defense system. "Aegis" is capable of hitting ballistic missiles and satellites at an altitude of 350 kilometers with a range of 3500 kilometers. In addition, they are equipped with the RIM-7 Sea Sparrow air defense system and Falanx anti-aircraft artillery mounts. Also on board the Donald Cook and its many brothers in the Arleigh Burke series are the Tomahawk sea-launched cruise missiles, which can strike enemy ships and ground bases.

Let's honestly admit that each such destroyer is definitely not a gift, even one can mess things up. But he also does not pull on the "wunderwaffe". This honest "workhorse" of the US Navy, which has entered the Black Sea, can also be sent to the bottom by Russian fighters and bombers, as well as coastal missile systems "Ball" and "Bastion" and ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. But when reading the numerous arguments on this topic, it is truly bewildering why the situation of confrontation of a Russian aircraft against an American destroyer or a coastal "Bastion" against the same destroyer is being modeled.

This is not a computer game where you can “save” and try to push different “units” together for the sake of fun. If "Donald Cook" knocks down our planes, or the Russian Aerospace Forces send an American warship to the bottom, a war will probably begin between the two nuclear powers. This business is so terrible that both Moscow and Washington hardly want this. The USA and the USSR, and now the Russian Federation as its legal successor, prefer to confront each other in the “proxy” format on the territory of third countries.

There are certain rules of the game. In Syria, for example, the Russian and American military prefer to recklessly and “push on the road,” but not shoot each other. So in the Black Sea, our pilots fiddled a little, and the Americans pretended to be frightened. And it’s better to keep it that way.

      During these trainings, pilots must also work out methods of electronic suppression of the enemy at the Telemba training ground. In this they will be helped by the newest electronic warfare complex "Khibiny", installed on the Su-24. On the ground, the pilots are supported by the Aerospace Defense Forces.

        Aviation complex electronic countermeasures (KREP) L-175V "Khibiny" (KHIBINY)

        Developer: KNIRTI (Russia), Research Institute "Ekran" (Russia)

        KREP "Khibiny" is intended for radio direction-finding of the sounding signal of the radiation source with subsequent distortion of the parameters of the reflected signal, namely for:

        delays in detecting the KREP carrier aircraft as an object of attack for the enemy;
        disguises the true object against the backdrop of false ones;
        difficulties in measuring the distance to the object, its speed and angular position;
        deterioration of the characteristics of the tracking mode "in the passage" when scanning the beam of the radar antenna;
        increase in time and difficulty in capturing an object when switching to continuous direction finding mode.

        Modifications:

        L-175V "Khibiny-10V" - for use on the Su-34 fighter-bomber
        Khibiny-60 - simulation model

        Khibiny-U - for use on the Su-30SM multipurpose fighter

        Khibiny-E - export modification

        L-265M10 "Khibiny-M" - for use on the Su-35S fighter

        KREP “Khibiny” is not installed on Su-24 aircraft (silent stage). The complex is intended only for the new tactical bombers Su-34 (the aforementioned L175V containers, delivery of 92 sets, according to the contract of the Ministry of Defense dated January 14.01.2013, XNUMX). The version of this station KS-418E for export Su-24MK and MK-2 did not go into series, was last seen at the MAKS stand in the mid-2000s.

        The carriers of the complex are Su-34, Su-30 and Su-35 aircraft.

          The latter is a moot point. If only because the model of the Su-24M with a container of electronic countermeasures equipment KS-418 was exhibited at one of the MAKS air shows.
          The reality of what happened was indirectly confirmed by a Pentagon official, who called the actions of the Su-24 pilot provocative. In his opinion, the Russian plane, apparently, did not have combat weapons on board, but it passed near the US Navy ship 12 times. Actually, there is nothing strange that a far from new front-line bomber without weapons passed several times near the newest US destroyer, armed to the teeth with air defense means. Such overflights of ships were earlier practically at every meeting of probable opponents.

          After the incident, as reported by the media, 27 man of the crew of "Donald Cook" wrote a letter of resignation. The Pentagon’s statement, by the way, claimed that the actions of the Russian Su-24 demoralized the crew of the ship. According to many military experts, the reason is in the use of the Khibiny complex by our bomber. And the American crew has demoralized its own powerlessness. According to experts, the destroyer from a distance spotted the Su-24 approach, brought the weapon into a state of readiness for use. And suddenly all his screens went out - so suddenly the screen of a mobile phone goes out. The Aegis system did not work. The screens came to life when the "drying" went to the Russian coast.

          Skeptics claim that the Su-24 could not immobilize the destroyer due to lack of interference power, which happened - the result of work from the shore of another complex - “Krasuha-4”. But one way or another, the sediment remained. The reason, apparently, is that both the Russian military and the creators of Khibiny were modestly afraid of “international scandal”.

            Only the Russian media announced this only, and there were no Pentagon statements about demoralization either. Early as well as the voluntary dismissal of 27 sailors.

            The only thing that the Pentagon announced was that Russian aircraft violated the rules for preventing incidents on the high seas.

    Why is the Russian Aerospace Forces regularly shocked by the American destroyer "Donald Cook"

    They are waiting to be shot down. And then they will not apologize, like Turkey.

    What for ? For training. How else to learn how to perform a combat attack on a target? And here he is, dear.

    Is the fairy tale about "Khibiny" still alive?

    It would seem that idiocy is rare, but it lives!

    The only question is why the vaunted destroyer gave the boat in 2014 from the coast of the Crimea (this was long before the first incident with the Su-24) after two BALs took aim at it? But he had a specific task to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces defend Crimea from the Russian spetsnaz, which at that time was just capturing the peninsula. So all these calls of NATO ships, flights along the borders with imitations of violent activity, are nothing more than clumsy show-offs.
    PS: It is unrealistic to shoot down a low-flying supersonic maneuvering target with a rocket. They are knocked down by exposing a barrier of fragments from the shells of rapid-fire anti-aircraft guns. Their combat radius is from 3 to 5 km. The heavier the anti-ship missile, the more difficult it is to destroy it. A single missile has a chance of 50 // 50. will rest on the experience of calculation. The ship has no chances from a group strike. Physically, they will not have time to work out 300 kg of explosives in 500 kg of an armor-piercing warhead?
