Russian warship carries out computer-assisted missile drills

January 26, 2009, Moscow -- The guided missile cruiser Moskva, the flagship of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, has conducted computer-simulated missile attack drills in the Mediterranean, the fleet's spokesman said on Monday.

"The designated targets were a naval ship and coastal facilities. All tasks set for the exercise have been accomplished," the spokesman said.

Moskva is a Slava-class missile cruiser designed as a surface strike ship with some anti-air and ASW capability.

The sixteen SS-N-12 Sandbox nuclear-capable supersonic anti-ship missiles are mounted in four pairs on either side of the superstructure, giving the ship a distinctive appearance. (edited @RIA Novosti)
