    Some say Putin with this sentence confirmed that Kalibr exists also in nuclear warhead variant Smile [/quote]

    Definately IMO...I would be surprised if there wasn't a nuclear version of the Kaliber

    US Navy Admits Russia's Defense Capacity Growing due to Kalibr Missiles

    Russia's brand new Kalibr cruise missiles take Moscow's ability to deter, threaten or destroy adversary targets to new heights.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia’s new Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) cruise missile systems provide expanded defense capabilities to the Russian Navy, the latest unclassified US Navy intelligence report reveals.

    "The new technologically advanced Russian Navy, increasingly armed with the KALIBR family of weapons, will be able to more capably defend the maritime approaches to the Russian Federation and exert significant influence in adjacent seas," the December Office of Naval Intelligence report said.

    It quoted an unnamed high-ranking Russian defense industry official as saying in 2011 that the Kalibr family "provides even modest platforms, such as corvettes, with significant offensive capability." The official went on to say the capability to hold distant fixed ground targets at risk using conventional warheads expands Russia’s ability to deter, threaten or destroy adversary targets.

    Last week, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov disclosed plans to fit two next-generation Project 22800 corvettes with new Kalibr systems. The Uragan and Taifun small missile ships are expected to join the national fleet in 2017-18.

    Experts assess that Kalibr can be used alongside other cruise missiles to perform missions similar to those of the US Conventional Prompt Global Strike program designed to deliver a precision strike anywhere in the world within an hour.

    The system, including anti-ship, anti-submarine and land attack cruise missiles with a reported operational range of 160 miles to 930/1,550 miles, was last deployed against terrorist targets in Syria early in December.

    Russia is underground a major five-year rearmament program to modernize nearly three-quarters of its military by 2020.

    Klub-K is better.

    For exported to countries definitely, but for Russia it's probably better to have official launch vehicles.

    Operation in Syria boosts interest in Russian ships carrying Kalibr missiles — official

    Foreign customers of Russia's arms exporter take special interest in Project 636 submarines and Project 21632 Tornado missile ships

    LE BOURGET , October 17. /TASS/. The Russian Navy’s participation in the operation in Syria has boosted foreign customers’ interest towards Russian ships armed with the missile complex Club - the export configuration of Kalibr cruise missiles, the chief delegate of Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Yevgeny Odintsov, told TASS at the Euronaval-2016 show.

    "The Russian Navy’s participation in the operation in Syria has boosted potential foreign customers’ interest in Russian ships capable of dealing effective, high accuracy strikes against targets deep inside enemy territory," Odintsov said.

    In particular, he mentioned project 636 submarines. One Russian submarine of this type, Rostov-on-Don last December launched Kalibr missiles at facilities of the Islamic State (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) from the Mediterranean.

    "At the beginning of the 2000s the Club-S system (export configuration of the Kalibr system for submarines - TASS) lent a new quality to the Varshavyanka class submarines and confirmed the unique capabilities of that project in the context of its modernization. Project 636 and 877EKM submarines armed with the Club system are now organic to the naval forces of many countries," Odintsov said.

    "Alongside this foreign customers have displayed interest in the missile-carrying ship of project 216332 Tornado. Upgraded ships of that project (the Russian Navy uses project 21631 ships; Tornado is the project’s export version - TASS) used Kalibr missiles to deliver strikes from the Caspian Sea," Odintsov said.

    He pointed out that small surface ships armed with Kalibr missiles (export configuration called Club-N) "are of the greatest interest to the countries which are implementing large-scale naval programs or have considerable national interests in land-locked seas, large bays and insular areas. Among such countries there are some countries in the Persian Gulf, the Mediterranean, Southeast Asia and South America," he said.

    The Russian Navy launched cruise missiles against terrorists in Syria in 2015 and 2016 from ships of project 21631 in the Caspian and Mediterranean seas.
