Well it's not like the Americans don't have a million different ways to sink that Kusnetsov either.

that is a lot of missiles. wasn't it Sum of All Fears where they were able to hit a carrier with a single anti-ship missile? i was wondering how realistic that could have been.

I watched Sum of all fears some time ago and IIRC there was a squadron of Tu-22's each firing at least one missile.
IIRC again I think there were multiple hits, but I could be wrong, as said it was quite some time ago.

The movie?
No it was many missiles fired. One got through the defensive shield and put the carrier out of comission.

True but remember that they didn't have any real-life scenarios to base their damage modeling on. No carriers have ever been hit by missiles...

I think American because they are so much more technologically advanced. BTW you never hear about the Russian much anymore.
