According to TASS, this missile model is being developed primarily for hitting large surface targets. As an example, agency sources cited aircraft carriers.
They also said that the characteristics of the “carrier killer” are very similar to the characteristics of Chinese missiles of the similar class DF-21D and DF-26. At the same time, the expected flight range of Zmeevik is up to 4 thousand km.
Recall that in early June, the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin announced the start of mass production of Sarmat missiles. At the same time, one of the regiments of the Uzhur missile formation should be the first to receive weapons of the future.
