- September 27, 2018
The Russian Northern Fleet has test-fired Onyx anti-ship cruise missile for the first time, launched from the Bastion missile-defense system, at the Arctic exercise on Kotelny Island.
The Bastion launcher can carry two Onyx anti-ship missiles, which can engage targets at a range up to 300km with a high-low trajectory, or 120km with a low-low flight trajectory. Although designed to be deployed against ships, it can be used against ground targets as well.
