The anti-ship cruise missile Granit was fired from a submerged position.

Russian nuclear-powered missile submarine Orel fired a Granit cruise missile during an exercise in the Barents Sea. It is reported by TASS Sunday 12 September

“The Granit anti-ship cruise missile was fired from a submerged position at a target position imitating a large surface ship of a simulated enemy,” the message says.

It is indicated that the target was at a distance of more than 100 kilometers from the missile launch point.

“According to the command of the fleet, the crew of the nuclear-powered submarine cruiser Orel successfully coped with the task, demonstrating high professionalism and naval skills,” the press service added.

Recall that in early August, the Russian nuclear submarine Eagle lost its speed for a while off the coast of Denmark. The crew of the Danish patrol boat Diana, who accompanied a group of three Russian ships, called the situation “dramatic.”
