The Tarantul-III-class corvette Ivanovets and her sister ship the R-60 took part in the drills, which involved hitting targets 30 nautical miles away with the P-270 Moskit supersonic anti-ship missile.
The Moskit is a supersonic missile designed to destroy enemy warships weighing up to 20,000 tons at a range of up to 90 kilometers away. The weapon flies close to the surface of the water to avoid radar detection, using high speeds and rapid maneuvers to avoid the target’s anti-missile defenses.
