Russia Fires Supersonic Anti-Ship Cruise Missile in ‘Signal to NATO’

Russia’s Navy has test-fired a supersonic anti-ship cruise missile in the Black Sea in a show of force ahead of NATO military exercises in the region.
With tensions still simmering following Russia’s build-up of troops on its border with Ukraine, the Russian Defense Ministry tweeted on Friday footage of the Moskva guided missile cruiser from its Black Sea Fleet launching the Vulkan missile.

The P-1000 Vulkan missile, an improved version of the Soviet-era P-500 Bazalt missile with greater range, was fired via the Moskva warship’s Bazalt main missile system, the Defense Ministry said. It landed around 19 miles away, Naval Post reported.

The footage the Defense Ministry tweeted shows the launch from a number of angles and cuts to the crew of the vessel on the bridge.
