"The mass launches of the Kalibr system’s [the analog of the Club missile system] cruise missiles by Caspian Flotilla [surface] ships and the Project 636.6 [Improved Kilo-class] Rostov-on-Don submarine against terrorist targets in Syria have proven their high effectiveness, pinpoint accuracy and long range. The interest in the Club missile system, which we are promoting on the global market, has always been keen, because the system is among the armament types boosting the strike capability of a navy," the head of the delegation said.

"Now, we expect potential customers in Southeast Asia and other regions to express higher interest in it. Actually, this goes for both the Club missile system proper and the submarines and surface ships it equips," Rosoboronexport’s representative emphasized.

As is known, the Russian Navy’s Caspian Flotilla attacked the infrastructure of the Russia-banned Islamic State terrorist group in Syria on October 7 and November 20, using 3M-14 (SS-N-30) cruise missiles of the Kalibr system. In all, the ships in the Caspian fired off 44 missiles - 26 on October 7 and 18 on November 20. The missiles were launched by the Project 11661 Gepard-class Dagestan escort ship and Project 21631 Buyan-M-class Grad Sviyazhsk, Veliky Ustyug and Uglich corvettes.

The Project 636.6 Rostov-on-Don diesel-electric submarine’s submerged launch of four 3M-14 cruise missiles in the eastern Mediterranean on December 9, 2015 became another phase of testing Russia’s cutting-edge precision-guided weapon in battle.
