Russian subs hit terrorist targets with ‘Kalibr’ cruise missiles in Syria
[RT] Russian submarines have fired Kalibr cruise missiles from the Mediterranean hitting terrorist targets in Syria, the Defense Ministry said. The strikes were to support Syrian troops waging ground offensive in Deir-ez-Zor province.

The submarines ’Veliky Novgorod’ and ’Kolpino’ launched 10 missiles on Thursday when patrolling the Mediterranean, ministry front man General Igor Konashenkov told news hounds.

The front man said the submarines fired the missiles while submerged.

Before the missile strikes, Russian surveillance detected Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(IS, formerly ISIS/ISIS) targets in Deir-ez-Zor province, including command centers, large ammunition depots and hangars housing terrorists' armored vehicles, the ministry added.

"To hit these targets, Velikiy Novgorod and Kolpino submarines of the Black Sea Fleet have performed two multiple launches of Kalibr cruise missiles from the Mediterranean," the front man said.

#1  Kalibr and Klub. Crude but effective. TLAM-N, old, given up but not bad. LRSO / LRAS, very nice, but a political football at present.
