Russia’s Kalibr Cruise Missile Upgraded Thanks To Experience Gained In Syria

Russia has upgraded its Kalibr cruise missile thanks to experience gained during the campaign in Syria, defense minister Sergei Shoigu said in an interview with Moskovsky Komsomolets that was published on September 22.

TASS quoted the minister as saying  that it “took so long to upload a flight mission for the Kalibr missile that a target could be missed,” adding “Today it takes much less to upload a flight mission for Kalibr.”

According to Shoigu, the instruction to fine-tune the Kalibr missile had been given by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

The Kalibr cruise missile has a range of 1,500-2,500 km and warhead weighting more than 400 kg. The missile is launched from surface vessels and submarines.

The Russian Navy has launched dozens of Kalibr missiles on terror targets in Syria since 2015. The missile was used extensively to strike key ISIS positions during the 2017 central Syrian campaign.

Shoigu noted that about 300 types of weapons have been fine-tuned thanks to the experience gained in Syria. Another 12 pieces, which had been considered as promising before, were taken out of production and service.

    Our(US) army ISIS has trained the Russians into the most experienced major nation on earth… ”

    • Harry Smith

      12 pieces are about Russian weapons.

      • MikeH

        Sure. He’s wondering if the US would be able to take a ‘promising system’ out of production due to experience? It has happened before (sgt. York) but very rare.

        Nice one. Just gotta love those sanctions. Russia, who created her automatic payment system, when the US sanctioned them, back in 2014 and threatened to have them banned from SWIFT, despite it not being an US system.

        Wonder when things will also link into China, as the three nations happily work together, with others that have been sanctioned by the US.

            Saudi is begging the UN to provide help, because they forgot to switch on their defence system, over in the oil fields.

            Funny, how nobody cares when thousands, are being slaughtered in Yemen, because Saudi wants her natural resources.

            The US believe that the UK will help them, bearing in mind Boris was heavily involved in helping Clinton make it to the White house. So which way will the UK turn. Bearing in mind, it will have to go through Parliament, and we are still miffed, that Tony had no problems lying to Parliament, to kickstart the Iraq War. There again, how many Common Purpose Members, who happends to be MPs, will simply vote to accept, on behalf of their Common Purpose, paymasters?

            There again, allegedly some sane ones, in the US military, warned Trump it would not be a good idea to try and take out Iran, which is why he cancelled his plan strike, when Bolton was his friend.

          Historically all international financial devices ultimately belong to the central bankers (globalists), so they would never allow devices such as SWIFT to be controlled by a nation state. Non-SWIFT system is most interesting development.

      Well that was a seriously interesting read. Considering they were not meant to be there in the first place. Not a good look, bringing home the body bags, when you have no permission to be fighting in Syria, now is it. Especially when there is an election coming up.

    now, the kalibr cruise missile comes to mind whenit’s time to close down tel aviv and the occupation of palestine by the squatters – a couple of dozen of kalibr from the caspian sea would be a good start on the campaign to rid palestine of the squatters, that will have to find a new home and another people to ravage and/or ethnic cleansing beyond existence.

  • Boycott-Israel!

    Much love for Kalibr, and of course my favorites, Iskander and Topol <3 <3 <3 seeing them getting along with terrorists just made me joyful… Please send them more :D

  • Another 12 pieces, which had been considered as promising before, were taken out of production and service.

    names of this weapons please?

  • AM Hants

    With Russia, they never rest on their laurels. Have the US fine tuned their tomahawks, following intelligence gained from Syria?

    Remember, 60 were sent, in order to try and impress President Xi Jinping, who Trump was hosting.

    1 got stuck in the tube.
    23 arrived at destination, rather impotent. Proven by the fact the Syrian military jets could use the airport a couple of hours after the attack.
    36 went AWOL.

    There again, can the US afford to upgrade their tomahawks?

    • Boycott-Israel!

      I honestly believe they can upgrade their weapons to have as close performance as the russian one, but since US & NATO used their weapons to kill people, by people I mean are civilian, non combatant, BIG Karma will reach them at one time.

      • AM Hants

        I just cannot understand it why NATO goes for the civilians first, as their good friends, the terrorists, get ignored.

  • BMWA1

    But does it stand a chance against the superb Patriot system???

  • cechas vodobenikov

    amerikans have as many brain cells as a markovka (carrot)—as shogui recently remarked, “we don’t require aircraft carriers; we need missiles that will destroy them”

  • Tommy Jensen

    Amateurish and unprofessional and not contributing to global peace and global freedom.

    Russia is only seeing it from a narrow egoistic point of view, while we are seeing it from a global peace point of view taking into consideration Space, the Universe and especially Mars!
