Russia test-fires new Kalibr cruise missile fired off from their new diesel submarine in the sea of Japan to hit a target at a range of more than 1000 km (621 miles) away, located at Russian training groundn onshore.
The Kaliba cruise missiles are capable of striking a target over a distance of 2000km away at a subsonic speed.
The Russian Navy had previously used the same Kalibr cruise misiles to strike Islamic state terrorists in syria with great accuracy.
The drill involved covert movement and support from military ships,aircrafts and drones according to Russia’s Pacific Navy.
The test come at time of increased tension between Russia and U.S in Europe over Ukraine and tensions in Pacific between China and Japan a U.S ally which also claim chain islands controlled by Russia.
Russia and Japan disputes over chain island has prevented the two countries from reaching a peace treaty ending world war II.
As Russian pacific navy fleet was launching subsonic cruise missiles from under sea to hit the target 1000 km away offshore, president Putin was launching two new Ballistic missile submarine which was seen as a warning to U.S and NATO.
There is no doubt that today Russia is more powerful than it was ten years ago and with help of the Chinese, Russia can now flex its macules without much fear of economic blockade or sanctions from the west.
