What makes this missile so uninterceptable? Will patriots be able to take it down? Will it be harder to intercept than a s300 missile?

    the fact that it's fired at objects without SAM coverage.

      why wasn't it covered then? it's a big city with strategic infrastructure

        because there are other places to be covered and there isn't enough coverage for everything

        Because AA is a finite resource and there seem to be areas that need to be defended more urgently.

      >The Armed Forces of Ukraine have no firepower capable of shooting down this type of missile. Since the beginning of Russia's military aggression, more than 210 missiles of this type have been launched at the territory of Ukraine. Not a single one was shot down by air defense systems.
      they need patriots asap. soviet junk and europoor crap can't protect them

      Welcome to eastern europe. My day job is training neural networks that control robots but my institute campus looks like it's still 1960.

        Eastern Europe? Talk about Europe as a whole kek.
        Poorer areas of Europe aren't immune to shitty contractors.

    It flies up to 40,000m and then dives at the target at Mach 3+.
    It's a weird profile and you would likely need proper ABM to shoot it down.

      you overstated its flight altitude by about 2x the amount. the absolute maximum altitude it ever topped off at was 25km.

        Kh-32 is the one that flies to 40k you are right.

        Still with Mach 4.5 terminal speed it is coming in faster than a Scud for example, only thing that Ukrainians have to shoot that down is S-300V, I don't even know if they have the ABM missiles for that though and frankly Kh-22s are not a priority target with how inaccurate they are.

          actually its terminal speed is only mach 2, it flies at mach 3.5 up high before shutting off the engine at 60km before target and then glides towards it at a shallow angle slowing down against the air.

          very few missiles go faster than mach 2 at sea level because air resistance creates so much heat it seriously messes with targeting sensors. in this case this is also a byproduct of soviet slapdash engineering, which was desperate for anything to try to strike US carriers, including a several ton hypergolic fuel missile which required to be refueled before launch with several teams of people in full hazmat suits handling highly dangerous, cancerogenic, toxic and very flammable and explosive propellants loading each seperately from the other for every launch. later on they did make the fuel storable inside the missile but it was still almost as much a chemical hazard as it was before.

    I always find it fascinating that Russian arms industry looks like the Chemistry building of an underfunded regional university that has yet to be renovated, but nobody does anything since they are scared to find asbestos.

    Also are you retarded, its speed and nothing else
