How to sink U.S. aircraft carrier? only one country can do.

America’s 11 nuclear-powered aircraft carriers have long been the “heart of the world” after some people proposed how to sink the United States 100,000+ tons of nuclear aircraft carriers, the country also generously announced four ways, to say that only one country can do.

Aircraft carrier is the world’s largest maritime combat platform, since its instation has become a proud weapon and equipment, the birth of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is to let the outside world shine. Due to technical and economic constraints, there are currently only few countries with aircraft carriers, for various reasons, many countries began to find another way to sink nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. Earlier, U.S. experts have been generous in announcing four approaches and said that only one country can do it.

As far as the current developments in various countries are possible, it may be more difficult to overtake the United States in the field of aircraft carriers. Earlier media reports that the country’s second Ford-class aircraft carrier “Kennedy” has entered the final mounted phase, according to the plan next year can be conducted sea trials, after this the United States will have 12 nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, such a scale is out of reach of other countries. But even so, the U.S. has not stopped moving forward, with officials revealing that 12 are not the end, and that the country plans to add two Ford-class carriers and several smaller carriers in the future to increase the number of the Navy’s main warships to 400.

However, advanced weapons and equipment also have shortcomings, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers are indeed strong, but there are also “natural enemies.” Experts say the only way to confront the U.S. aircraft carrier head-on is to use hypersonic missiles as a deterrent, a strategic thinking that Russia has followed in recent years. Earlier, U.S. experts also generously announced four ways to sink the U.S. aircraft carrier, and said that only Russia can do it.

It is understood that the first way is to send warships to focus on the attack, although Russia did not get the aircraft carrier, but its small frigates carrying weapons and equipment is very powerful. It is reported that the country’s Admiral Gorshkov class frigate, drainage is not high but can carry 32 anti-aircraft missiles and 24 hypersonic anti-ship missiles, once all out, even the U.S. aircraft carrier is difficult to defend.

The second method is the “Zircon” hypersonic anti-ship missile, which can fly up to Mach 9, the U.S. defense system is currently unable to intercept, is a great threat to the United States. The third is a “dagger” hypersonic missile, which has a maximum flight speed of more than Mach 10-12 and can strike a U.S. aircraft carrier with just one.

In addition to hypersonic missiles, Russia’s nuclear torpedoes are not to be underestimated, including “Poseidon” with nuclear submarines, can quietly approach the U.S. aircraft carrier and cause heavy damage, even the aircraft carrier fleet is not immune. It is precise because of Russia’s powerful weaponry so that the United States has been afraid to cross the red line.


  1. If you’re afraid of having a US CVN sunk, the best defense is a “mad-dog at the end of a chain” offense. Destroy your enemy at the pier long before they close to a threat range. Yeah, that might “escalate” things a bit but much cheaper to send them to the bottom first.

  2. I hole sanity will prevail to save this earth! Trillions of dollars being used to build these white Elephants could be used on Economic Developments with accountable Govts!

  3. Russia survives by selling weapons to other countries. They created a fake rivalry with USA even though they do not have the strength to fight USA they only pretend to do so. This creates an illusion of their powerful weapons and that attracts countries like India to spend billions in acquiring them. But whole Russian display is nothing more than a façade.
