The President of Ukraine witnessed the testing of the newest Ukrainian development capable of destroying both coastal and at-sea targets. All components and sub-components of the system are reportedly produced locally by Ukrainian defense companies.
The secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine reported that during the test, all systems of the missile and its flight characteristics were checked. “The cruise missile performed a unique mission mission: flying more than 100 km in the direction of the sea, made a U-turn, and hit the target with accuracy on the way back,” said A. Turchinov, adding that the flight and maneuvering of the rocket were recorded by surveillance equipment both on the coastline and on an Island.
“New mobile complexes of cruise missiles can quickly reach certain combat positions and be ready to launch a missile strike in a matter of minutes,” he said, stressing that Ukrainian R-360 cruise missiles “can accurately hit surface and ground targets at a distance of more than 300 km. “
According to Turchinov, all the components of the complex and the rocket itself “perfectly fulfilled the tasks and proved their compliance with the specified characteristics.”
The secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine said that an interesting feature of today’s tests was the involvement of cadets and officers of the Institute of Naval Forces of the National University of Odessa Maritime Academy in their participation.
“Today we are creating fundamentally new weapons that the Ukrainian army never had, and therefore, at the test level, we are starting to prepare military specialists who must be prepared for the operation and combat use of modern and high-precision missile systems,” Turchinov said.
