Nuclear submarines of the Russian Federation launched “Granites” and “Onyxes” at a sea target
Nuclear submarines “Omsk” and “Novosibirsk”, as well as the coastal missile system “Bastion” of the Pacific Fleet conducted launches of cruise missiles “Granit” and “Onyx” on a sea target in the waters of the Chukchi Sea. This was reported in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
To carry out rocket firing, “Novosibirsk” sailed under the ice and rose to the surface in the designated area of the Northern Sea Route.
The report says that the missiles fired by the submarines hit a complex target at a distance of more than 400 km, which imitated a detachment of warships of a mock enemy.
