Feeling a little surprised that this missile does not have its own thread, especially with the news today.


"It took the projectile just 137 seconds to travel over 250km to its intended target on the shore and obliterate it, Zvezda TV reported, publishing footage of the test fire. The Kalibr missile family can be used by a wide range of naval platforms, and made its debut in actual combat during Russia’s counter-terrorism campaign in Syria."

covering 250 kms in 137 seconds requires a speed like 1.8km/s so a hypersonic variant being tested?

Kaliber doesn't have a thread here because it's not an unbuilt project.

This is RT citing RuMoD official TV channel. Both are farm of journos with a brains of Drosophila melanogaster

Title Section: Projects of missiles, bombs, guns, and other forms of weaponry, I read the rules of the post before posting as well. The kalibr missile is an ongoing project with different variants. Can the admin add a 3rd rule as well just in case there are other users that do the same thing

Before you create a new topic please

1) Search the forum and make sure there isn't a topic already.

2) Think about what you are posting. Try to post a sensible topic, like a specific missile, or manufacturer, or country. Try to make the title descriptive.

The forum has main áreas divided into sub areas. One of the main areas is "secret projects" which is divided into unbuilt projects ( either because still in development or cancelled). Those projects are aircraft, ships, land vehicles, missiles, etc.

Everything translated into hardware, basically that into operational status, should go into another main area and sub area ( aerospace, military, bar...) because falls out of the forum subject of study.

I hope this should help to clarify the criteria. Of course moderator team thanks any help and take in consideration any ideas for improvement of the basic rules

Regards

Well, I would honestly rate RT quite a bit higher than that. At least part of it (varies greatly).
