This Product Usually Ships In 2-3 Business Days
The development of the Su-27K was intended to produce a ship-borne long-range interceptor to complement MiG-29Ks in air wings that would equip the Soviet Union's four new conventional aircraft carriers. One carrier was never started, another (Ulyanovsk) was scrapped on the slipway, and Varyag (formerly Riga) remains incomplete and unlikely to enter Russian/CIS service, leaving only Kuznetsov in service with the Russian Navy.

The P-270 Moskit (Mosquito) is a Soviet supersonic ramjet-powered anti-ship cruise missile. Its GRAU designation is 3M80, its air-launched variant is the Kh-41 and its NATO reporting name is SS-N-22 Sunburn. This powerful anti-ship missile embodies the ambitious plans of the Soviet Navy of the cold war era. The Moskit was designed to be employed against smaller NATO naval groups in the Baltic Sea (Danish and German) and the Black Sea (Turkish) and non-NATO vessels in the Pacific (Japanese, South Korean, etc.), and to defend the Russian mainland against NATO amphibious assault.
