Russia’s new hypersonic anti-ship cruise missile successfully hits target

Footage released on Wednesday, September 25 features a K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defence missile system which was used for the first time during the Russian Northern fleet’s military exercises in the Arctic, Al-Masdar News says.

The P-800 Oniks supersonic anti-ship cruise missile reportedly hit a sea target 60 km (37 miles) offshore, in the Laptev Sea water zone.

The missile was shot at a target which simulated a detachment of ships belonging to an imaginary enemy.

The exercise was conducted from Kotelny Island in the Russian Arctic area.
