Russian Warship Fires Missile at Old Vessel


Footage released by the Russian Defense Ministry shows ‘Stoikiy’ (Resilient), a 1,800-ton warship, prepare and launch the ‘Uran’ anti-ship missile at an undisclosed location in the Baltic Sea. One of the vessel’s missile bays opens up moments before boosters propel the weapon towards the mock target. The target – a retired bulk carrier – is then seen taking the hit, at which point the video ends.
