On November 3, Russia’s diesel-electric submarine B-271 Kolpino fired six cruise missiles at ISIS targets in Deir ez-Zor province in Syria.
The missile strike supported an advance of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on the strategic city of al-Bukamal. This marked the 100th combat use of Kalibr cruise missile by Russian forces, which signifies the fact that the cruise missiles became widely used by the Russian Navy. Russian forces used Kalibr cruise missiles to destroy terrorist command centres, weapon depots and fortified areas.
The Russian military blogger “navy_korabel” made a research and prepared an interesting chronological table on the issue. You can find its translation below:
