2 min read

In today’s session, we are going to discuss the cruise missile, Tomahawk vs Kalibr, which one is actually the most powerful? To get a detailed answer, stay with us and watch this video till the end.

It is generally known that cruise missile is regarded to be essential with distinguished capacity for a naval power to attack long-distance targets located in the depths of the land. Until 2015, only the United States and the United Kingdom were thought to have this capacity with their Tomahawk cruise missiles. However, these two nations are no longer the only countries capable of engaging long-range cruise missiles. Obviously, on October 7, 2015, the Russian Gepard-class frigate Dagestan, as well as three small Buyan-class corvettes launched twenty-six Kalibr cruise missiles from the Vertical Launch Systems. This nine-meter-long cruise missiles soared up to 900 kilometers above Iranian and Iraqi territory before crashing into eleven targets in Sy-ria,

In relation to the Kalibr missiles, submarines of the Russian Navy’s Kilo-class and more modern varieties, such as the Akula, Lada, and Yasen classes, have currently deployed them. They’re also used on frigates and corvettes, but they haven’t been installed to larger ships yet, but this may change in the future. The Kalibr missile category contains over a dozen different models that varies in launch platform, range, target profile, and speed, as well as lengths ranging from six to nine meters, but all of them carry a 990-pound warhead or a nuclear payload.
