They're going to have to spend a great deal of money to establish parity in this regard; by which I mean viable defensive systems
That's the first danger
They don't need parity. They will be sinking US carriers and US ships using missiles not carrier based aircraft, so whether one Russian carrier group is facing one US carrier group or all 10 it makes no difference... there will be more aircraft in the air for them to deal with, but assuming it is a 70-90K ton carrier with a decent number of fighters and AWACS platforms that will be cooperating together with cruise based heavy SAMs in enormous numbers... on paper you might say 10 US carrier groups will eventually break through but after the third US carrier is sunk and dozens of AEGIS class cruisers are sunk... how long will the US forces keep fighting against an enemy whose missiles they can't stop?
I mean lets turn it into a land battle and have 10,000 US Abrams tanks invading Russia and Russia defending itself with Kornet-EM ATGMs that can destroy Abrams tanks from the front at 8.5km range... you would say that if every single Abrams tank commits to the job at hand and rushes forward and attacks that the Russians might locally run out of missiles and they can progress to the next layer of the defence... but the real question you have to ask yourself is... does the US have the balls to take those sort of casualties just to engage a group of Russian ships at sea?
A Russian group of ships without carrier support is vulnerable but very well armed... they might be able to surprise it but those ships are very well defended.
With carrier support those ships will be even better defended but also much better able to see attacks as they form... they will be able to send out aircraft to investigate suspicious groups of ships or aircraft... which will tell them early on they are under attack, which means they can prepare radar and SAM systems and gun systems.
No. I don't think Russia should send their fleet out during WWIII to hunt western shipping... I would think most of the time in times of increased tension they will likely send a carrier group to any specific location where the tension is... and the other group would probably operate in the arctic...
The point is that a couple of CVNs will be enormously valuable in peacetime ensuring other countries don't interfere in smaller countries ability to trade openly and fairly with Russia.
The US doesn't want the rest of the world to realise there is an alternative to the 10% that the west represents... they run the international organisations and they control international commerce... why? Because they have the military power to enforce it...
But the Soviets had military power... why weren't they an important part of those int orgs... because their navy... like their air force and their army were optimised for defence and were never intended for global domination like western air forces and armies and navies... western militaries were always optimised for going somewhere else to fight, which made them useful for colonial duties which continue to this day.
And I am not saying Russia has to become like the west... if I was they would need 100K CVNs with strike planes and at least 6 of them so they could have a real presence out in the world.... But Russia has to expand out into the world and the easiest and cheapest way to do that is with their navy... Army bases and Airfields around the world would be more expensive and subject to loss in the event of regime change... and if Russia had large military bases in say somewhere like Syria would that increase or decrease the chances the west would support regime change?
The second danger is that other players will get ahold of these missiles, and really it's high time for Russia to move towards this.
Other countries are going to get these missiles.... which will put not just Russian ships but also buildings and facilities in Russia in danger... the solution is never to eradicate spending on the air force... Russia can use its skills with scramjets and start making scramjet powered anti scramjet powered missile missiles.
There are plenty of solutions that need investment and a combination of several of those will be best... but when you arrive at that then you will suddenly realise the best protected ships are the biggest ones that can carry the heavy air defence systems in numbers enough to make them useful... while the US and the west have probably decided to go for little boats in huge numbers... having too many targets never bothered the Japanese when they slaughtered millions of Chinese soldiers, or the Germans when they were shooting millions of Soviet soldiers... the western term is a turkey shoot... and it probably stops being fun after a while for the shooter, but in this case they will continue because its their job... imagine what it is like for the turkey...
Sponsoring Navalny in Russia, encouraging the collapse of Russia by proxy through the use of Ukrainian and Kazakhstani Nazis now actively trying to stoke the flames of ethnic tension in Russia, not to mention organizing the revolution in Belarus - well enough is enough quite honestly. They've practically declared war.
Communication is an important thing but sometimes the others don't listen, so reciprocal action is needed... I am sure a few hours of hacking into the US intel servers will reveal all their deepest fears... it doesn't actually take that much to get some people going... a lot of groups just need a bit of direction and minor funding... they are already nuts and ready to do everything for their cause...
Wait for November, then when Trump is cheated in elections or simply overthrown, the globalists will have seized full power, and there would be nothing holding Russia back, from supplying MiG-31s and Kinzhals, as well as new vessels with Zirkons to North Korea, Iran, Venezuela at the minimum
Actually I would think that would be counter productive... imagine a defecting pilot...
Selling Iran the licence to produce MiG-29M2s and Su-30s, which Iran could pay for in oil or stakes in oil fields or as investment etc...
The Democrats used to be the party of peace but now they are more blood thirsty than the Republicans... if Russia sold MiG-31s and Kinzhals to Venezuela Biden would probably fabricate an excuse to "invade" to save the Venezuelan people and give them democracy by removing the person they elected to rule them and replace him with a US friendly puppet that they nominate... What could Russia actually do? Send a frigate?
That will give the globalists something to worry about in terms of maritime security.
Honestly I don't think it matters who wins... there is going to be more wars... I think Trump might try to attack Iran... I suspect Biden will be more interested in Venezuela for their oil reserves and their close proximity... there is no chance of a Vietnam in America... is there?
If Trump wins I suspect the riots from the democrats will be terrible and people are going to die and lots of property damage is going to result because the democrats are sore losers in their ivory towers...
They blame everything and everyone else for their failures without looking at what they did and what they should have done... the US news media and the TV and movie people and of course all the liberal elite suffered from yes man syndrome... they weren't interested in any information that didn't suit their views and thought everyone agreed with them.... urbanisation does it... it separates you and isolates you into a little bubble.... you know the regulars at the coffee shop near where you work but you have no idea who your neighbours are... and when they get the shock that they are wrong an not everyone thinks the way they do there has to be a good reason.... Russian Hackers.
