Russia has the ability to sink NATO ships, in particular the US Navy, located in the Black Sea, the Zvezda publication says.
“According to experts, the armament of the Russian aircraft was quite enough to send the destroyer to the bottom of the Black Sea,” says an article on the last call of the Arleigh Burke-class Donald Cook at sea.
According to the publication of the weekly, such actions of the American side “help the combat improvement of our army.”
The publication, in particular, claims that Donald Cook “according to the Pentagon scenario should have gotten too close to the Russian borders and expected a response,” to which the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) “responded and raised six fighters into the sky so far for repelling the attack of a potential enemy ”.
It also notes that the United States can “acquire the political status of the Black Sea power”, for which it is enough for them to rent “one square kilometer for 49 or 99 years” from one of its allies.
In March, The Drive reported that the US Navy's Arleigh Burke-class destroyers based in Spain had AN / SLQ-62 Transportable Electronic Warfare Module-Speed To Fleet (TEWM-STF) systems capable of killing Russian anti-ship missiles P-800 “Onyx”.
