    Video of what I assume is a couple of the Kalibr hits yesterday. If they were aiming for the buildings both missed but did big damage..

    That is the SatCom indicated by the red arrow. The whole thing is a Com Center connected straight to mother Russia.

    ......

    I doubt that they would publish footage of misses especially since PR is such a big deal these days... or any days

    But I am sure it will be good talking point for likes of Jihadi Julian and Co...

    No system is perfect, but kalibr has proven quite reliable. In regards, the Kh-101 hits were amazing. I imagine after both have been used, much is being tweaked. Currently the company who makes Iskander M is giving the Russian forces new missiles. They look the same but their internals are all different. This is an example of course but after all these field tests, same will be done on Kalibr and others.

    The launch of Kh-35 is very interesting though. Any videos?

    Bet the Air Force Generals at CENTCOM and in Israel choked on their coffee when they heard that news. Not just the aircraft but S-400 etc based there.

    You can tell that last photo was Russian not a US chopper, only a meagre assault rifle clipped in, not a Gatling or similar spewer of indiscriminate death.
