In recent years, Vietnam has begun to frantically introduce advanced equipment from countries such as Russia to build the most powerful modern navy in Southeast Asia. Under the long-term plan of the vietnamese navy, vietnam is building a new type of naval force, especially a missile craft, dominated by speedy missile boats, submarines and fighter jets. Today's vietnamese navy has built a powerful anti-ship, even anti-carrier, fleet of missile-boat wolves.
In recent years, vietnam has been almost at all cost to the introduction of missile boats. In state media reports, vietnam's missile boats have always been the \"star\" with the most pictures. The vietnamese navy has traditionally been proud of the submarines, the appearance rate is increasingly low.
On the eve of New Year's Day, Vietnam's navy specifically released a promotional video, in which Vietnam's own \"Lightning\" class missile boat became a well-deserved protagonist, and the picture of four missile boats firing together made countless Vietnamese boiling over. Some netizens on vietnam's social networking site have even begun to discuss the strategy and tactics of vietnam's missile boats in the field of anti-carriers.
To some extent, vietnam's missile-boat-wolf tactics pose a significant threat to large warships on the surface, but the vietnamese navy seems to ignore one of the most critical issues for anti-carriers.
The``Lightning'' class missile boat is currently a famous card for Russia's export, with excellent marine adaptability and anti-ship capability. It can adapt to the climate of all the sea areas from the cold zone to the tropical zone, and the speed is fast and the life span is long. Under normal circumstances, the``lightning'' class missile ship can achieve 35 knots, up to 38 knots, which is much faster than the carrier carrier, and a 500t``lightning'' class missile boat can achieve 2700 km of long-km under economic speed.
On weapons and radars, the Lightning class missile boats are equipped with four four-pack anti-ship missile launchers and 16 Uranus modified missiles with a range of up to 150 km. One 76 mm main gun, two 30 mm sub gun. In order to improve the air defense capacity of missile boats, the Lightning class is also equipped with a \"needle\" ship-to-air missile launch system, equipped with 12 ship-to-air missiles to intercept and counter attack cruise missiles and fighter jets. In addition, the various radar and anti-jamming equipment on the \"Lightning\" level are also very complete enough to deal with the normal detection work.
Under the agreement signed by Russia and Vietnam, Vietnam will use the technology provided by Russia to produce and assemble 10\" lightning \"class missile boats on its own. In accordance with the rules of the four vietnamese navy to form a combat team, such a combat team with full firepower, a wave of attacks can launch 64\" uranus \"missiles, such a fire density, aircraft carrier formation can really resist?
Indeed, from the outset, Vietnam has overlooked the crucial question of whether its missile boats have the opportunity to launch missiles. According to the range of Uranus anti-ship missile, the missile boat must enter the range of 150 kilometers from the aircraft carrier to have the possibility to lock the aircraft carrier launch, but the modern aircraft carrier under the protection of many frigates, the warning range of at least 800 kilometers, the carrier aircraft attack range of 1500 kilometers. Such a 500- ton displacement boat, how can the aircraft carrier's strong defensive fire to survive? With those 12 needles? is still far from enough.
