Russia fires supersonic anti-ship missiles at dummy target in Sea of Japan
A missile boat attack group consisting of two boats launched a “common missile attack on a sea shield that imitates a mock enemy warship.”
The Russian Navy fired supersonic anti-ship missiles at a dummy target in the Sea of Japan. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
“In the waters of the Sea of Japan, missile boats of the Pacific Fleet fired Mosquito cruise missiles at a mock enemy’s sea target,” the statement said.
It is noted that a missile boat strike group consisting of two boats delivered a “common missile attack on a sea shield that imitates a warship of a mock enemy.”
The Russian Defense Ministry said that the target, located at a distance of about 100 kilometers, was successfully hit by a direct hit from two Moskit cruise missiles.
Note that the P-270 Moskit missile is a supersonic medium-range cruise missile of Soviet origin, which is capable of destroying a ship at a distance of up to 120 km.
According to Sky News, the missile launch came a week after two Russian nuclear-capable strategic bombers flew over the Sea of Japan for more than seven hours in what Russia called a “planned flight.”
Recall that in November last year, the new Russian diesel-electric submarine Magadan launched Caliber cruise missiles from the Sea of Japan.
It was also reported that the expert told how the modernized missiles of the Russian Federation bypass the air defense of Ukraine.
