The Russian military used the occupied Crimea to test the cruise missile, fired from the coastal missile system called Skala (‘The Rock' in English).

According to the country’s defense ministry, this was a part of the naval drills, where Russia’s Black Sea Fleet was involved. 15 battleships and support vessels, as well as naval aviation and drones took part in the exercise.

The coastal missile system is located in the Crimean Mountains, on the altitude of 500 m above the sea. The weapon is designed to take down any sea-based targets within the range of 300 km.
