    Things just got real, ladies and gentlemen, as Russia’s Moskva cruiser, an 11,500-ton and 186-meter warship armed to the teeth, has arrived in Latakia to take care of Russian planes in the air.

    The Moskva cruiser is essentially a naval version of the S-300 long-range air defense system. In addition to anti-air missiles, the Russian vessel is armed with anti-ship missiles, anti-submarine mortars and torpedoes.

    The Moskva cruiser can cover all of southern Turkey from Latakia, making sure that from now on Russian planes are safe in the air.
