The Russian Defense Minister spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov announced to the news agency that they have an ammunition depot in Ukraine’s Odesa region on Sunday, where multiple launch rocket systems (HIMARS) from the United States were stored.

“Long-range, high-precision Kalibr maritime missiles in the area of the settlement of Maiorskoye, Odesa region, destroyed an ammunition depot with US HIMARS missiles and anti-aircraft systems,” Konashenkov said.

Additionally, the Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, pointed up that the Russian Army has used at least three times the Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, capable of reaching “Mach 5” speed, about five times the speed of sound.

“In general, it is practically impossible to shoot it down, and we use it to attack particularly important targets,” Shoigu clarified, enhancing that these projectiles can change their trajectory in vertical and horizontal planes along their trajectory, as reported by Kommersant.

According to NATO’s clarification, this Kalibr is an SN-N-27 sizzle, which the Russian cruise missile developed and produced by the Novator design bureau in Yekaterinburg (part of the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern). The Russian Armed Forces presently use two modifications of these missiles, that is Kalibr-NK (ship-based) and Kalibr-PL (mounted on submarines).
