    So from Crimea or Novorossyisk or south of Caspian Sean things  would look even better. Not to US navy though.

    At there current base the planes are hard to hit. But best base would be Hmeimim.

    The circle is only the range of Kinzhal, add another 500 - 1000 km for the MiG-31K.

    Depending on the mission profile:
    Combat radius: 1,450 km (900 mi, 780 nmi) at Mach 0.8 and at an altitude of 10,000 m (33,000 ft); 720 km (450 mi; 390 nmi) at Mach 2.35 and at an altitude of 18,000 m (59,000 ft)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan_MiG-31#Specifications_(MiG-31)
    But with a heavier missile, the combat radius is somewhat less.

    A video made by Jean Pierre Petit. He is a french scientist that worked on MHD propulsion with great success. He is talking about the russian new weapons that Putin presented.



    I watched an interview of him in french, he said his work was analyzed by US and they told him they are working on a MHD torpedo that goes much faster than the shkval.

    He also think that burevestnik nuclear missile is supersonic.

    You can check his profil on the net. He is an interesting guy.
