Description: The Russian Navy Kalibr-PL or Kalibr-NK, also known as SS-N-30, is a long-range cruise developed as part of the Kalibr ship borne missile system. This weapon is intended to hit targets with pinpoint accuracy at ranges of up to 2,500 kilometers equipped with a conventional warhead and flying at altitudes of 50 to 150 meters from the ground. It is highly subsonic with a booster in the launch phase. The navigation system seems to be built around the Inertial Navigation System (INS) and satellite guidance (GLONASS). The existence of the Kalibr-NK cruise missile was revealed on October 7, 2015, when Russia launched 26 missiles against 11 targets in Syria from the Caspian Sea traveling 1,500 km. The four ships involved in this operation were three Buyan-M gunboats and a Gepard corvette. Western intelligence was unaware of the existence of the Kalibr-NK missile at that time.
