Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Evmenov announced plans to arm all submarines with Caliber missiles
All Russian submarines, including strategic ones, can be equipped with Caliber-PL cruise missiles. The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, spoke about this in an interview with the newspaper “A red star”.
“The tests of the Caliber cruise missiles were carried out on second-generation submarines. And today almost all operating submarines can be armed with them,” he said.
The next step will be to equip submarines with hypersonic missile weapons, so “no one will have any doubts that we will do this,” Evmenov concluded.
Kalibr is a family of Russian long-range cruise missiles. They are part of the Black Sea and Pacific fleets.
Earlier it became known that the Zircon surface-based hypersonic missile will go into service with the Russian Navy this year. According to the general designer of the Reutov NPO Mashinostroeniya Alexander Leonov, all the necessary documents are currently being processed.
