    A Russian nuclear submarine obliterated a dummy target using the same type of cruise missiles that were used against Daesh militants in Syria.

    Severodvinsk, the newest nuclear submarine of the Russia’s Northern Fleet, executed a flawless precision strike against a dummy target during a routine military exercise off the coast of Arkhangelsk Region. The attack was carried out using Kalibr (NATO codename: Sizzler) ship-based cruise missiles during a routine military exercise off the coast of Arkhangelsk Region.

    This particular type of cruise missiles made somewhat of a sensation last October when the ships of Russia’s Caspian Flotilla successfully used them against Daesh targets located over 900 miles away in Syria.
