Russia tried to counter the most recent flight test of the new Ukrainian anti-ship cruise missiles P-360 complex LCD 360МЦ “Neptune”, Defense Express reported, citing the statement of representatives of design Bureau “Luch”, which developed the weapon.
In the publication information and consulting Agency argues that the Russian side has deployed electronic warfare, which was to change the course of missiles (to reduce the accuracy of hitting the target), or, more probably, could collect radar data about a new weapon.
According to Defense Express, Russia’s attempts to prevent the testing of Ukrainian missiles were not successful.
In June the winged antiship missile P-360 complex LCD 360МЦ “Neptune” for the first time has passed flight tests with the standard warhead, which was successfully destroyed the specified target. In July 2019 the former Secretary of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov said that the Crimean bridge in a few minutes may be destroyed “Neptune”.
In may of the R-complex 360 LCD 360МЦ “Neptune” during the tests at the state landfill AliBey in Odessa region almost simultaneously destroyed two targets. In April, Defense Express posted on the YouTube video, which shows the penetration of the R-complex 360 LCD 360МЦ “Neptune” in the marine goal.
In February of the same year, The National Interest wrote that in case of success “Neptune” will be a key milestone in the development of missiles in Ukraine.
The R-complex 360 RC-360МЦ “Neptune” has a warhead weighing 150 pounds, with a launch range up to 280 kilometers and a speed of about 900 kilometers per hour. The altitude of the rocket flight — from three to ten metres above the sea level.
