Russia Tests Antiship Missiles in Sea of Japan

On July 18, the Russian Ministry of Defence released video footage of naval drills in the Sea of Japan. Two vessels of Russia’s Pacific Fleet—a missile boat and a destroyer—participated in the exercise. Each ship launched one or more SS-N-22 Sunburn (Moskit) antiship missiles, striking a floating target located 60 km from the warships. The SS-N-22 is a supersonic antiship missile with an operational range of over 120 km.
