"During state tests a few days ago, the Krasnoyarsk nuclear submarine successfully completed single launches of the Kalibr-PL cruise missile and the Onyx supersonic missile from an underwater position in the White Sea,” the agency said.
There is no official confirmation of such reports, the agency added.
The Krasnoyarsk is the fourth nuclear submarine of Project 885. These submarines are equipped with torpedo tubes and launchers that allow them to carry Onyx or Kalibr missiles.
