27th October 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Croatian Navy successfully fired the RBS15 missile during one of its main training events, HARPUN 16, Saab announced on 27 October.

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.
