Croation Navy fires RBS15
The missile was fired from the navy’s RTOP-42 Dubrovnik fast attack craft as part of wider work to increase operational capabilities in planning. The exercise aims to develop improved joint naval operations in a complex maritime environment, with the focus on the implementation of firing an anti-ship missile and maritime assault.
Lt Gen Drago Matanović, Deputy Chief of the General Staff, said: ‘The firing of the RBS15 demonstrated the Croatian armed forces’ capability to operate from all RBS15 launch platforms, which is a significant step forward in the Croatian armed forces’ capabilities.’
The RBS15 is a surface-to-surface missile system designed to be a vessel or vehicle's main anti-surface armament. It can be launched from naval vessels and trucks, in scenarios from blue water to the littorals, as well as in land attack missions.
