sounds a little out of date but supersonic anti-ship missiles can be surprisingly powerful in war. after all how many hits can a carrier take, if the attcking missile are Russia/China's Sunburn?
why doesn't America interest in them.

Its from the Brahmos.. (Mach 2.5 as of now I think)
And sinking a carrier is a waste o f munitions..it would take to many assests and firepower..
A properly targeted shot a the proplusion system and/or the carrier deck would be good enough to cripple carrier ops..propulsion cannot be repaired at sea..
