The Russian Navy’s Black Sea flagship sinks in the Black Sea following Ukrainian claims of hitting the ship with a missile strike. Moskva seems to be hit by Ukrainian Neptunes anti-ship missiles, first fielded in 2021, based on the Soviet AS-20 ‘Kayak’anti-ship missile which is similar to the U.S.-built Harpoon missile.
Moskva was commissioned into the Soviet Navy in 1982 and is one of three Slava-class guided-missile cruisers. The three 11,500-ton Slavas were designed around launchers that can hold 16 SS-N-12 Sandbox anti-ship missiles.
