If the Russians fired one of those poxy missiles of theirs and there was a Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer within SIXTY miles they'd be shot down, considering that a Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer is capable of tracking and shooting down an object the size of a
Mach 2 - twice the speed of sound
- and is capable of doing that to several objects at the same time and from sixty miles away. So the fact that those Russkie missiles travel 300km per hour - 186mph in Queen's English - does not make the British quake in their boots.
The Type 45's main weapon is the Sea Viper missile. It can reach speeds of Mach 4 to Mach 5 - speeds which make those Russian missiles you mentioned look like flying snails - in
only two seconds
and carry out flight manoeuvres three times more severe than a fighter pilot can withstand. Each Type 45 can carry
48 Sea Viper missiles
If there were ever to be an "Armaggedon" scenario, it could fire them all in just two seconds.
It wouldn't be Goodnight Vienna to the British. It'd be Goodnight Vienna to the Russkies. So I would advise the Russians not to pick a fight with the British.
Your call ....... keep it open (allowing Russian Companies in) or look like Pearl Harbor
It's my call - and my call is that the British would win. No Russian missiles would get anywhere near British ships or British land. We'd shoot them down.
