    Mock-ups of Russian military hardware including Kalibr cruise missiles will be presented at the Army 2016 international military and technical forum, which kicks off outside Moscow in early September, according to RIA Novosti.

    These missiles were also used by Caspian Sea-based Russian Navy ships, which targeted the positions of the terrorist group Daesh in Syria last year and earlier in 2016.
