Essentially it is having trouble with long range missiles and all other ones (less than 150km range) are working as intended so they blame the Fakel plant which makes the missile, hence why they never mentioned the radar but the missile itself. Makes sense. So the 9M100 and such are working as intended.
This is what I have been saying all along. Only one latest type of missile has problems.
Possibly 20380 wasn't ever really intended to be able to properly use 9m96 but they gave it a whirl anyway hoping for something like 30km effective?
20380 was not supposed to use this type nor it ever will. Gorshkov frigate will, a completely different class of vessels.
20380 never had any problems whatsoever with AA systems. Why are people even talking about this? It is Gorshkov frigate that has problems with 9M96 missile, not 20380 corvette which does not use it to begin with.
Can we finally stop discussing 9M96 missile and 20380 corvette already? They have no connection nor relation with one another.
I really dislike 20380 corvettes but their AA systems work fine, even I admit that.
