MOSCOW, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Russia's newest diesel-electric submarine Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky has successfully test-launched a Kalibr cruise missile from the Sea of Japan, the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

The missile was fired from underwater and hit a coastal target in Russia at a distance of over 1,000 km, it said.

According to TASS news agency, the Kalibr missile is capable of striking a target over 2,000 km away at a subsonic speed. The Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea has used these missiles to bomb Islamic State terrorists in Syria.
