VLADIVOSTOK, April 22 (RIA Novosti) - Three of the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet warships successfully carried out the simultaneous delivery of supersonic cruise missiles during tactical maneuvers in the Sea of Japan on Thursday, the fleet's press service said.

"Range practices like this have been carried out by the Pacific Fleet before. But the maneuver today was unique because the guidance of the group of anti-cruise missile was given simultaneously from three ships. This time the route to the targets was marked by a special plane, as well as the usual devices," he said.

The spokesman said that according to preliminary estimations, the enemy in the maneuver was successfully defeated.
