Many carrier aircraft have somewhat contradictory definitions, or definitions of unclear value, as far as their carrying capacity. They may list only having 4 parking spots and a max number of aircraft or helicopters, in one sense, but then have coordinates set for over a dozen different parking spots on the deck. The blocks below distinguish between these two by calling them “nominal” and “defined” limits, where the nominal parking limit at most seems to correlate to how many different aircraft can be designated as “start on runway” in the mission editor.

The defensive arcs show the areas around the ship where specific defensive systems have full range of movement. This does not mean that areas that are not covered are safe — rather that the ship systems will be limited in their effectiveness because ship decks, conning towers, or bridges are in the way. However, given enough elevation, they can usually shoot over such obstructions, and only low-altitude skimming creates the coverage gaps demonstrated. In addition, depending on the guidance system of the weapon, they may be lofted above obstacles if the target is far enough away, which means that the “safe zone” only exists at low altitude and at close range.

Up to four range layers are shown in the arc sketches: close-range protection (from CIWS and simular systems); short-range protection, usually from IR-guided missiles; medium-range protection, usually from less advanced radar missiles; and long-range protection.

Since all ships only use a handful of weapon systems, the two are presented separately to reduce the amount of repetition.

Notes
Acts as a warehouse to deliver stores to other units and to landed aircraft. Per the internal definitions, it cannot re-arm its own weapon stores once depleted.

Its detection and engagement range are defined to be orders of magnitude higher than any of its sensors and weapon systems could possibly reach or make use of, causing the threat circles in the mission editor to be massively and ridiculously over-exaggerated. At best, they can be used as a very inaccurate indication of the effective range of any helicopters on board. The engagement ranges listed are what the on-board Vympel trackers is actually capable of.

Curiously enough, an LSO and a dock view are defined, using virtual DShK machine-gun mounts to create their respective viewpoints.

Notes
While the 093 has no defined anti-air weapons, it is defined with sensor capabilities and defensive behaviours that will let it react to nearby aircraft — and more importantly air-launched anti-ship weapons — unlike the SSK 641 and 877. Its range definitions and threat rings apply more to other ships than to aircraft, and the on-board weapon systems can actually engage targets farther out than the threat ring would suggest.

Tactics
Navalised Tor-M1 / SA-15 system, also exported as “Klinok”. Similar tactics apply: fly above it and preferably use bombs against the carrying ship since the missile is very capable at intercepting incoming guided ordnance.

Available on
1144.2 Pyotr Velikiy, 11435 Admiral Kuznetsov, 11540 Neustrashimy
Tactics
Essentially a navalised SA-19 Tunguska, except the autocannons have been replaced by two 30mm rotary cannons. Unlike the land-based Tunguska, this system will almost universally give launch warnings since it is part of the overall ship radar guidance system rather than being optically guided, so the only surprise is that ships love to fire them in clusters of roughly a fuckjillion at a time. Distance and altitude helps, and the two systems are not quite as adept at intercepting incoming missiles as the Kinzhal… but unfortunately, any ship that uses one also uses the other in some form, so that is not much of a limitation.

Available on
052B
Tactics
Navalised Buk-M3 / SA-11 system. It improves significantly over the land-based system by having much more capable anti-missile self-defense capabilities, thereby covering up the main weakness that could be exploited. It gives up some altitude in the process which might, on a good day, alow for bombs dropped from a very high altitude to slip through.

Notes
Usually rail-mounted, either singularly or as a pair, each with its own ammunition storage.

May have some nominal anti-missile capability depending on default values in either the sensors or the carrying platform, but the low range and speed will make any intercept unlikely to begin with.

Tactics
A naval version of the 9K33 Osa / SA-8 system, it is mosly found on older ships, either as a backup system to something more capable, or as a complement to a CIWS that is dedicated to anti-missile defence. Unlike most other systems, anti-ship missiles stand a chance of penetrating Osa coverage.

The same rotary autocannon as in the later, more advanced, Kortik CIWS. The system consists of the autocannon, the swiveling turret, and a Vympel tracking radar.

The H/PJ12 is effectively the same as the Vympel CIWS, but made in China with a different mount and target tracking radar.

HHQ-9

HHQ-9 (海红旗-9) “Sea Red Banner”
System / function Guidance Stores Range
HHQ-9 anti-air/anti-missile. Semi-active radar 6× HHQ-9 Low alt. engagement: 5.4–32.4nm / 10–60km
High alt. engagement: 5.4–54nm / 10–100km
Altitude: 32–114,800ft / 10–35,000m

Acquisition time 2s
Acquisition limits Target size limit: 0.02m².[4]
Aiming limits N/A. Uses vertical launch system.
Kill radius 20m
Notes
The missile itself has a minimum launch range of only 0.4nm / 0.8km, but the launching system as a whole has a lower engagement limit of 5.4nm / 10km. This is most likely set up to avoid wasting shots from the VLS on targets that the missile has no chance of arcing down and hitting anyway.
Available on
052C
Tactics
A Chinese reinterpretation of the S-300 / SA-10, this system improves on that baseile, but does not quite reach the levels of evilness of the SA-20. It flies farther and, perhaps more crucially, lower than the SA-10, and thus fills in some of the more critical gaps of that system, but in doing so, it creates a new gap that can occasionally be exploited: it is horrible at engaging close-range targets. It requires some pretty specific circumstances (as well as ignoring the presence of CIWS systems), but if you can use coastal terrain to get close and personal, the missiles will not be able to hit you.

HQ-16

HQ-16 (红旗-16) “Red Banner”

Acquisition time 8s
Acquisition limits Target size limit: 0.02m².[4]
Aiming limits N/A. Uses vertical launch system.
Kill radius 15m
Notes
The missile itself has a minimum launch range of only 0.4nm / 0.8km, but the launching system as a whole has a lower engagement limit of 5.4nm / 10km. This is most likely set up to avoid wasting shots from the VLS on targets that the missile has no chance of arcing down and hitting anyway.
Available on
054A
Tactics
What the HHQ-9 is to the SA-10, the HQ-16 is to the Buk-M3 / SA-11: improved range, altitude, targeting, and engagement capabilities except that its VLS means that it is not quite as effective at short ranges. Even so, that short range gap is still very small and is trivially covered by CIWS systems.

S-300F Fort / SA-N-6 “Grumble”

S-300F Fort / SA-N-6 “Grumble”
System / function Guidance Stores Range
Fort anti-air/anti-missile. Semi-active radar 8× 5V55 Engagement: 2.7–64.8nm / 5–120km

High alt. flight range: 2.7–40.4nm / 5–75km
Altitude: 82–98,400ft / 25–30,000m
Max speed: Mach: 5.0
Reload / rearm 3s to ready a new missile; cannot be rearmed once depleted.
Acquisition time 10s
Acquisition limits Target size limit: 0.049m².[4]
Aiming limits N/A. Uses vertical launch system.
Kill radius 20m
Notes
Has an engagement range that is longer than the actual flight range of the missile, which may cause some over-enthusiastic firing.

Can have issues with engaging anti-ship and cruise missiles during their terminal phase due to the relatively high minimum altitude, but generally has enough range to engage such missiles before they descend.

Available on
1144.2 Pyotr Velikiy, 1164 Moskva
Tactics
The naval version of the S-300 / SA-10, with all the threat level this implies. Its only real downside is that the way it is set up, the AI may be a bit early on the trigger, causing it to waste missiles (but most ships generally have quita a few to spare) and that it has a fairly high minimum altitude as far as shipborne systems are concerned. Then again, skimming along at less than 80ft / 25m for as long as is required to evade this system is quite a challenge, and you still generally have to face various back-up armaments and CIWS at the very end.

Available on
1144.2 Pyotr Velikiy
Tactics
Not just the the regular S-300 / SA-10, but the upgraded SA-20 version with a much more capable missile. The methods available against the SA-N-6 are now right out: sea skimming has to be done below 32ft / 10m, and the missile range now matches the flight range, so there will be no wasted shots. Also, there will be multiple highly capable weapons in several more layers before you get anywhere close to the ship.

Maybe just skip the whole airplane bit and get a submarine?
