About a month ago, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy went to the Black Sea for firing. The firing, carried out with the use of the Vulcan anti-ship missiles (a development of the Basalt system), took place, according to representatives of the fleet command, normally. The target was hit from a distance of about 30 km. The P-1000 Vulcan entered service in the late 1980s. The carriers of such anti-ship missiles are Project 1164 Atlant cruisers, to which the Moscow State missile complex belongs.
