Russia launched cruise missiles at targets in Syria

Russian media reports that a Russian  Buyan-class corvette operating in the Mediterranean Sea on Tuesday launched Kalibr cruise missiles at targets in Syria.

The Russian  cruise missiles 3M14 complex “Kalibr” hits  the positions of militants groups “Dzhabhat en-Nusra” and its allies in the “Army of Conquest” in the village of Al-Mansoura, near Al-Gaab (northwestern Syrian province of Hama).

The Kalibr cruise missile is an updated version of a missile that has been in Russian service since 2012, according to online sources. With a range of roughly 1,000 miles or more and small enough to be carried by submarines and small warships, the weapon is changing the calculus of the reach and effectiveness of smaller naval combatants.
