The Kh-101 stealth missiles used in the SVO proved to be invulnerable


In the course of Russia’s special operation in Ukraine, modern Russian strategic air-to-ground stealth missiles Kh-101, developed by the Raduga Design Bureau using of technologies reducing radar visibility. Once again, they proved their usefulness and actual invulnerability from the air defense systems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on September 14, when struck in Krivoy Rog, the dam of the Karachunovsky reservoir on the Ingulets River.


The Kh-101 launches by Tu-95MS strategic bombers over the Caspian Sea were not detected by either Ukrainian intelligence or NATO countries. An air raid alert was announced in Ukraine after the missiles hit their targets.

The design features of this high-precision munition often allow it to overcome even the enemy's air defense system in depth with impunity. The missile can change its flight profile and altitude (from 30 m to 10 km) and fly at a maximum speed of 270 m/s.

The maximum flight range of the Kh-101 is 5,5 thousand km, and the throwable mass can reach 430 kg. At the same time, the QUO of the rocket does not exceed 7 m for stationary objects. Moreover, there is also a special warhead (from 250 kilotons to 1 megaton), but such ammunition with a thermonuclear warhead is called X-102.

    about the same was written about the rest. Like, the Mace is invulnerable... Satan is also invulnerable... Yes, and Sarmat too...
    For the destroyed air defense of Ukraine, of course, "X-101 proved to be invulnerable"

      Destroyed air defense? maybe yes
      That's just for some reason aviation VKS does not fly over all Ukraine...

        Why? Simple math: 1 hour of Su-35 flight costs 750 thousand rubles, only for fuel and without weapons. 1,5-2 million actually. The price of the aircraft itself is 2-2,5 billion rubles. at the very beginning, but the air defense of the west has not gone away and it keeps the zapadenshchina like crap. Plus, MANPADS are like fleas on a dog. In the aggregate, it’s cheaper to hit with cruise missiles, which are also expensive, but even cheaper and are guaranteed to hit where they need to go. And where there is no air defense at all, they iron with FABs.

    Well, Bulava, Sarmat, and that, who will go to war with nuclear weapons against us. Why did the SVO show that the Russian Armed Forces can fight successfully with barmaley. Here they are shelling our territories and everyone sailed with Bulava across Ukraine. Better a 1000kg planning bomb would be released, or like a Tornado for 600 km

      Yes, there are high-explosive three-ton bombs (moreover, 60 years old as they are) and Iskanders for 500 km bullets ... there is just no order to use ... (sadness, melancholy, bewilderment ...)

        Tales are about orders. Putin does not command every division. And a volley of a Hurricane or Tornado division will take down a lot of things, but this will also take down someone's shoulder straps. Shoulder straps are more important than human lives.

        The sad thing is that we will never know the reason for the "loyalty" of our command.

    UFO flights were recorded over Kyiv - that's what they write in ukrosmi. They have an explanation for everything.
