The Russians are not going to be getting those vessels back.early theory was exactly so: transfer of ships through a friendly in-between for both. with appropriate time gap (a year) to save face.
23 mm and 30 mm are more relevant. But I too would like to know to what extent designers take account of such fire and to what extent they are succeeding.Here is a random question - Just how good are modern fighter aircraft at withstanding enemy weapons fire?
Obviously a solid missile hit will kill most planes, but what about cannon and small arms fire?
I remember that during testing, the USAF actual shot a F22 with 20mm(?) cannon round, and it survived the test just fine (although I couldn't find any details on just how much damage was sustained if anyone has a good source).
As dedicated CAS birds are retired from service world wide, CAS is increasingly being taken by multi-role fast jets originally designed for air superiority.
I wish to know, as much as it is possible with open source material, just how much of a risk ground fire poses to these multi-role jets?
