BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – Footage released on Wednesday features a K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defence missile system which was used for the first time during the Russian Northern fleet’s military exercises in the Arctic.

The P-800 Oniks supersonic anti-ship cruise missile reportedly hit a sea target 60 km (37 miles) offshore, in the Laptev Sea water zone.

The missile was shot at a target which simulated a detachment of ships belonging to an imaginary enemy.

The exercise was conducted from Kotelny Island in the Russian Arctic area.

Interesting. The reason the rocket turns so sharply after launch, is so it would stay low to the ground/sea and it’s harder to shoot down during the initial stage.

I don’t want to disappoint you but… NOPE! Initial stage will take place about 500-600km from the target, you’re very unlikely to have any interceptor in the vicinity of the launch. Moreover, a good part of the flight will be at 14km altitude and Mach2.5-2.6 then the P-800 will go sea-skimming 10m high at Mach2 to hit the target while being to low for (nearly?) all radar-guided SAMs. The real reason is P-800’s engine : a ramjet. Ramjets are a pity under 1000km/h and have a power about zero under Mach0.5. The launch is made by a small droppable rocket… Read more »

Sorry, you’re wrong. It’s about reaching the necessary speed to put the Ramjet on with minimal sized droppable rocket engine.

P-800 is nothing new : in service since 2002, produced since 1987 (prototyping then lack of funding due to fall of USSR). The Bastion-P land system was introduced in 2016 and was already used in combat against ISIS targets in 2016. P-800 can also be used against land targets. In the same range of Ramjet powered missiles, it’s a pity we didn’t built an ASMP-A conventional version or modified the retired ASMP this way, maybe with a booster for vertical launch. It would have been more interesting than the MdCN and/or a perfect fit to replace the Exocet : ASMP/ASMP-A… Read more »

P-800 = Mach 2.5… Not hypersonic.

Finally you are right about one thing. I’m surprised you didn’t blame Iran and Hezbollah fore the target’s destruction.

What the fück the licy mullahs and the Lebanese creeps these use as cannon fodder have to do with Russian gear which I often like a lot. In fact, I’d even love to see Dassault, Safran and Sukhoi teaming at doing a stretched by 50%+ Su-57 with 4x M88 engines in the potential 115kN version (M88 can be pushed this far without changing the core). I estimate that such a baby could replace Tu-22M by a stealth asset with as much range and payload and would be a very nice strategic bomber and much more. I’m from the geopolitical school… Read more »

I’m unfortunately right about many thing. These are just facts you don’t want to face since it’d force you to reconsider your mindset. During the 70’s, you’d probably had supported the ‘Khmer Rouge’…

It’s the curse of any serious geopolitical analysis…
It unpleases everybody since the only conclusion you can draw is there are no good guys and usually, the worst ones are those doing the greatest efforts in order to look good… This ends being a bit… digusting…
