Uran has 260km range, does Harpoon?dionis wrote:Eh? I mean for the Slava that's obvious, but the Kara/Kashin/Krivak class vessels carry the Uran at best (which isn't better than even the Harpoon). Then the others have the SS-N-14, which is crap.GarryB wrote:Even their tiniest Corvette will have a 30mm gatling gun answer to a subsonic Harpoon or Exocet. If Turkey could procure B-2s in sufficient number... say 1,000 of them then the Russian military will not have enough AAMs to shoot them all down and therefore some will make it to Moscow!The best on-board ASCM option is either the SM-39 or UGM-84 Harpoon. If Turkey can procure SM 29 and UGM 84 Harpoon in sufficient number there is very little that the RuAF can do.
Every Black Sea Fleet ship in the Russian Navy carries a better anti ship missile than the Exocet or Harpoon.
The BSF also has small rocket ships with Moskit.
Metel is no worse tactically than Exocet, and obviously is dual role.
