Russian state media has reported on an advanced Kilo-class submarine appearing close to the Syrian coast, equipped with Russian Kalibr cruise missiles.
The reports, coming from a source in the Russian Ministry of Defence cited by Interfax, are as yet unconfirmed by the Russian MoD.
Russia previously targeted IS targets in October with the same Kalibr cruise missile fired from warships in the Caspian Sea.
The ‘improved Kilo’ class is the NATO designated name for the new advanced Russian naval submarine, also known as Project 636 Varshavyanka.
Dubbed a “black hole” by NATO due to its undetectable ability, it is one of the quietest submarines under the waves.
