Russia's Bastion Defense Launches Supersonic Anti-Ship Missile

The Russian Navy has test-fired a supersonic Onyx anti-ship cruise missile for the first time.

It was launched from the Bastion missile-defense system, which was recently deployed to the Russian Arctic.

A video of the launch shows one P-800 Onyx missile, which can travel at speeds of up to 1,980mph, shooting up in the air and then gliding above the sea towards a mock target designed to simulate a group of hostile ships.

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.

The first three Bastion mobile coastal defense complexes were received by the Russian military in 2010 and have since been used in combat in Syria.
