None of FC-3 aircrafts can carry anti-ships missiles. The Heatblur AJS-37 Viggen can carry antiship missiles and the future F/A-18C can carry Harpoons (not in the initial release).

Not anymore at least. I think the Su-33 did have anti-ship missiles in earlier versions.

But yeah, the only aircraft in DCS currently that has anti-ship missiles is the Viggen. It can use the RB-04E and RBS-15.

The main problem of the Su-33 "old" antiship capability, was "invented" by ED, but later, removed but the Su-33 never was anti-ship and munition guided capability, only rockets and bombs.

Su-33 is using the SVP-24 now, not really guided munitions, but a lot smarter thatn the old modes.

I can really recommend the Viggen. It does exactly what you want

The Kh-25 MPU, Kh-58, Kh-29T, Kh-25L, Kh-29L, S-24L, and the laser guided bombs are as close as the playable FC3 planes get.

They all have the problem that they either do little damage or that against a guided missile ship you have to penetrate about 40 km inside the lethal range of the ship's surface to air missiles.


With a very large strike package, and as much speed and altitude as you can get to extend range on the munitions, you can get munitions through to the target.

Doing it with AI formations though, I generally got results like 0-4 missile hits on the ship for a loss of 6-10 strike aircraft. It's an expensive and desperate proposition.

Only way I could see it working is if there's a coordinated strike where a friendly naval force is also attacking, and the combination of surface to surface and air launched munitions is enough to over saturate the defenses around the target.


Against a ship that is unarmed or only has short range (less than 10 km max range) air defenses then the Kh-29 variants do quite nicely. It does list ships as potential targets in the description, but it's not meant for dealing with well defended targets.

Best suited for the task at the moment. And a great plane to fly!
