The Moskit, also known as the SS-N-22 Sunburn according to NATO, is a supersonic anti-ship cruise missile that has conventional and nuclear warhead capacity.

The missile test comes a week after two Russian strategic bomber planes — capable of carrying nuclear weapons — flew over the Sea of Japan for more than seven hours in what Russia said was a “planned flight.”
