    Tons of kalibrs in service. Khinzal will be limited due to number of existing MiG-31K's. Maybe end up with at best a couple hundred. Khinzal though may be used on other platforms in the future so who is to say? Zircon isn't out yet and still being tested (very different than Kinzhal and more related to Kalibr but faster (significantly) and probably significantly more expensive so will be limited to more strategic assets. Kh-59 is entirely different and used for Airforce to hit targets the Khinzal won't be targeting.

    Use these containers to protect the weapon.

    Nice images, but not the real thing sadly...

    Note the pointed tips of the actual Club missiles means these are the two stage subsonic cruise missile and supersonic rocket powered terminal attack anti ship missiles... rather nice looking weapons...
