    I guess the key here is:

    1) whether this was actually a cruise missile

    2) what are the details of the missile and whether it is a prototype.

    The rest is trash. We already know from official sources that 15% of US cruise missiles failed in 1999 during the NATO
    gang rape of Serbia. Yet one never hears about any test failures in the USA. This suggests testing in remote regions.
    Russia has plenty of remote regions, yet we are to believe that it sends its test missiles near villages. Obvious BS.
    If someone is going to claim that this missile veered off course for 100s of kms I will call BS again. The missile would
    crash long before it could get that far.

    So the Yahoo story is BS.

    There was a test crash, it was on Tass. It hit near a city and claimed it damaged a house. But afterwards the government said no actual damage occured and investigation ongoing for failure.  We know that 2 failed over over 30 launched in Syria so not unheard of.  And the results are better than NATO. Thats to say, not much more info on it.

    I know a Bosnian lad, He lives in Sarajevo. Just outside his village there was a failed cruise missile. I met him when I was in Albania, He also told about some NATO bombs landing on civilian areas on purpose. If you ask me I say Russian cruise missiles are more reliable then any out there.

    I stand corrected, the idiots in charge of this testing program need to be fired. They have no respect for public safety and for
    Russia's image.

    The testing area is apparently known.  Whatever happened with the cruise missile is probably guidance went wacky.  This shit does happen and good thing it does as it will determin what caused it.  Russia is in middle of import substitution, especially electronics so this will help them in long run (I am certain that all missiles components are domestic).  Although, I agree there needs to be better areas to do this.

    New Fuel Increases Range of Russian Cruise Missiles by 185 Miles

    A new propellant could be used in the engines of hypersonic strategic cruise missiles to increase their range by up to 300 kilometers (185 miles), Russian Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov said Tuesday.

    "Over the past few years, Decylin-M fuel, which enables the range of strategic cruise missiles to be increased by 250-300 kilometers, began to be used by the Russian Armed Forces," Bulgakov told reporters.

    Cruise missiles are widely used in Russia's anti-terrorist campaign in Syria, which is being conducted at Damascus' request. On October 7, the first launch of Kalibr cruise missiles (NATO reporting name SS-N-27 "Sizzler"), used in the Syrian air campaign, was conducted from the Caspian Sea. All the missiles reached their targets, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    How will Kh-101, having a 5000 km range fare against moving targets, like ships. Against a fixed target, guidance is easy and we've seen they tested it out in Syria. Don't you think Guidance will be the problem with this kind of missiles against moving targets?

    Can we've ASM dedicated Kh-101/102 also ?

    It has some potential against moving targets because it has terminal homing.

    If it has sensors that detect enemy radar emissions and an IR sensor that can detect heat signatures then it could be used against moving targets but the real problem is that the time it takes to travel 5,000km means even a slow moving target can move a great distance.

    Options including flying at medium height scanning large areas with IR and passive radar sensor to find target... or a search pattern based on the last known location of the target to allow the target to be reacquired when the missile gets there.

    would be less of an issue for a much faster missile like a hypersonic weapon.

    Russia Carries Out Training Launch of Cruise Missile From Iskander-M System

    The missile brigade of the Russia's Central Military District carried out a combat launch of a cruise missile from the operational and tactical Iskander-M missile system, according to official statement.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia carried out a combat training launch on Friday of a high power cruise missile from Iskander-M ballistic missile systems in the country’s southwest, the defense ministry announced.

    "The missile brigade of the Central Military District carried out a combat launch of a cruise missile from the operational and tactical Iskander-M missile system against a command center of a simulated enemy some 200 kilometers [124 miles] away," the statement reads.

    The missile, manufactured using technologies to reduce radar visibility, was not detected by the simulated enemy’s electronic warfare equipment and successfully hit its target.

    According to the statement, the altitude of the main part of the flight was around 40-50 kilometers.

    The 9K720 Iskander-M entered into service in 2006 to replace the OTR-23 Oka missile system, retired following the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union.

    The Iskander is characterized by its high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to put the system into operational readiness.

    The original Kalibr carries a 500-kg blast-fragmentation warhead.

    Post  Austin on Fri Apr 29, 2016 12:15 pm

    http://www.navyrecognition.com/index.php/news/defence-news/2016/april-2016-navy-naval-forces-defense-industry-technology-maritime-security-global-news/3880-russias-project-11442m-kirov-class-cruiser-to-be-fitted-with-3k22-a-3m22-tsirkon-hypersonic-missile.html

    The Kalibr is a direct descendant of the Soviet-made 3M-10 Granat (SS-N-21 Sampson) sea-launched cruise missile system - its heavy upgrade, in fact. Soviet-made nuclear warheads - 200-kiloton TK 66-02s in the first place - may be easily demothballed and mounted on the advanced missiles. The TK 66-02 type fitted not only the Granat, but the Kh-55 air-launched and 3M-12 Relief cruise missiles as well (the latter better known as RK-55).

    The improved 250-kt TK 66-05 model fitted only the Kh-55SM missile. Both warheads weight 140 kg. Another variant is the lighter - 90-kg - 10-kt TK-60 low-yield warhead developed specifically to equip the 3M55 Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) antiship missile.

    The original Kalibr carries a 500-kg blast-fragmentation warhead. If the conventional warhead is swapped for a nuclear one and the resultant spare internal volume is used rationally, about 400 kg of extra fuel can be carried. This will extend the weapon’s range by another thousand kilometers. To cap it all, the INF Treaty does not cover sea-launched cruise missiles.

    MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russia’s Kh-101 cruise missiles, which a Tupolev-95MSM bomber used against terrorists in Syria for the first time on Thursday, have a circular error probable of no more than seven meters, the editor-in-chief of the Arsenal Otechestva (Arsenal of the Fartherland) magazine, Viktor Murakhovsky told TASS.

    Russian aviation developed Ultra-long cruise missile

    Cruise missile designed for long-range strategic modernized Tu-160m2, said in an interview with news agency RNS scientific director of FSUE "GosNIIAS" Academician Yevgeny Fedosov.

    "Now I lay in the draft modernized Tu-160M ​​rocket so-called X-DB - long range. The range of her secret. It is known that its predecessor - the rocket X-101 with the usual charge has a range of 3 thousand. Km. The new rocket range will be much more "- Fedosov said.


    Cruise missile Kh-101 launcher turret in the inner compartment of the strategic bomber Tu-160


    According yo Fedosov, "today delineated concept: not to introduce long-range aviation aircraft in the enemy's air defense zone."

    "It has to work outside this zone, and the weapon enters the zone. If such an aircraft carries a lot of weapons, it starts to work again the principle of the information degradation in air defense. Without going into the enemy's air defense zone, and launching missiles there, we dictate the direction of impact, time and density. And if you have a good scout enemy air defenses, then we will always find a bottleneck and throw it in the throat of the grouping. If we are talking about a strategic nuclear strike, then at least one missile has always held. And this will be enough, "- Fedosov said.

    ‘Most advanced & highly reliable’: Putin commends designers of Kh-101 strategic cruise missile


    https://www.rt.com/news/395530-strategic-cruise-missile-putin/


    President Vladimir Putin has praised the reliability of Russian weaponry, while applauding the developers of the Kh-101 strategic air-to-surface cruise missile which has proven its effectiveness against terrorists in Syria.
    Trends

    “I would like to thank both the military personnel and the designers and developers of one of our latest missile systems, Kh-101,” Putin said
    at a Meeting of the Commission for Military Technical Cooperation with Foreign State

    “This missile system has proved highly reliable. It is indeed the most advanced weapon with high precision and capacity, and a range of 4,500 km, which is quite good,” he added, urging defense companies to step up production of modern weapons.

    The Kh-101 missile, created by Raduga (Rainbow) Design Bureau, was first battle-tested in Syria in 2015, but the Russian military once again demonstrated its effectiveness on Wednesday, when Tu-95MS strategic bombers fired the missiles on Islamic State targets in Hama and Homs provinces.

    Noting the potency of the new missiles with stealth radar-evading features, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday’s precision strikes were carried out “from a distance of about 1,000 kilometers.”
