  • X-555 Criuise Missile: Russia

    Russia's new X-555 cruise missile operates better than its predecessor

    The innovation has put an end to the USA's monopoly in usage of high-precision long-range missiles

    Russia's newest aviation cruise missile X-555 created by the Tactical Missile Weapons corporation can easily get to a vent sash from the distance of over 2,000 kilometers. The new weapon will replace cruise missiles with nuclear warheads currently adopted by the Russian strategic aviation. X-555 missile

    Test of the new missile was conducted in August with President Putin's participation. The military say that the innovation has put an end to the USA's monopoly in usage of high-precision long-range missiles. Now, the Russian Air Force can use such missiles for any mission, including liquidation of international terrorist camps. ..........................

    ======================
    Pretty impressive, I must say..2000 km's

      I love the word "liquidate". Very Russian...even in English ;)

      I especially love it when it's used in the same sentence as "terrorist".
      Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

            Yea, 1st generation Tomahawk. Nowhere near what we use now.

            When they can do this call me: capability to reprogram the missile while in-flight to strike any of 15 preprogrammed alternate targets or redirect the missile to any Global Positioning System (GPS) target coordinates. Able to loiter over a target area for some hours, and with its on-board TV camera, allow the warfighting commanders to assess battle damage of the target, and, if necessary redirect the missile to any other target.

            Thats what we have ;)

                Which is... nice. Indeed.

                  X-555 is just a deep redesign of the circa 1985 X-55 nuclear-only missile. Radar CS reduced, improved accuracy, added GPS/GLONASS etc. - the things that are needed in a conventional missle.
                  Btw, some sources list 5000km as a range for it.

                      Increased from 130 kg to 350 kg. To compensate for removed fuel - they added two jettisoning external fuel tanks.

                      Btw, interesting that in the same series of tests they also launched the same amount of X-101, but nothing in the press and no pictures.

                            But with that bullet you have eyes on target. You can see that it moved and that you need to fire more rounds. Or you can see that the intended target isnt in the area yet and not send a bullet in the empty target area. You can also see that you have hit the target and that no more bullets are needed, or need more "Effect" and shoot more.

                            Just think of Toms as the Shooter and the bullet. We won't hit any more empty training camps when the target is the terrorist. The commander doesn't need to risk an Recce plane to assess damage. And can shift missiles in flight to new targets if needed.

                            Yea, its more of a rant on so many posters that think the Russians and Chinese are producing "Super weapons". We also have pundits that do the same.
                            When in reality, both countries are producing avionic/electronics that are equal to what we had in the 70s.

                              Not really "super weapons" ;) Actually all of the X-555 are going to be made from X-55's.

                              Btw, have you seen any posters of the X-101/102?
