Russia Set To Create New Cruise Missiles With Ranges Up To 1,000 Km


Moscow: The Tactical Missile Systems Corporation is the leading Russian manufacturer of high precision missile systems of all types for different launch programs, and comprises over 30 enterprises across the country.

According to the newly-relesed Russian doctrine on naval activities until 2030, long-range high-precision cruise missiles will become the core weaponry for Russian navy by 2025.

One of the most effective and widely known Russian cruise missiles, Kalibr, was first used in combat by the Russian Caspian Flotilla against Daesh targets in Syria in November 2015.

Kalibr missiles have been repeatedly fired from Russia’s Buyan-M-class ships and Varshavyanka-class submarines against Daesh targets in Syria. Since the Kalibr missile has an operational range of up to 2,500 km, the launches were carried out from the Caspian Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
