The Russian Ministry of Defence has issued a video of naval drills in the Sea of Japan, showing two vessels of the Pacific Fleet – a missile boat and a destroyer – obliterating target using P-270 Moskit missiles (NATO reporting name SS-N-22 Sunburn).

These supersonic ramjet-powered anti-ship missiles can easily hit a target that located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the warships, which is not the weapon’s limit. The video shows the firing in full – with the projectile launching from the vessel to its destination.
