September 25, 2018 (Google Translation) – As part of the planned combat missions at the Pacific Fleet’s naval test range, Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers carried out practical launches of the latest airborne guided anti-ship missiles X-35U.
The launches were carried out in a complicated target situation, imitating a group of ships.
The shooting was carried out singly and volley on various trajectories of the missile’s flight. In total, eight launches were carried out.
All the missiles successfully hit targets.
The X-35U anti-ship missile is designed to defeat surface targets of various classes without the entry of carriers into the zone of fire impact of air defense assets. So, the maximum range of its launch is over 250 km. At the same time, hits of one such missile will be enough to destroy a modern corvette-class combat ship.
Deliveries of the X-35U to aviation units and military units have been carried out since 2014.
These missiles are intended to equip all modern and prospective operational-tactical aircraft.
