    Do you have a source that this was tested on a ship target? Also if it was a static target, that isn't much of a test. That only indicates it can accurate hit a target using GPS. Some kind of terminal guidance, or else terminal target update, would be required for a sea borne target.

    EDIT TO ADD: DF-21 was also 'tested' the same way: it was fired at site with known coordinates in the desert. It has never been tested on a moving target at sea.

    Hi Josh, my statement about a "towed" target is now under doubt.... I wanted to give you a supporting link, went to a russian forum where I read about towed ship, but the guy gave only a link to a well known video where it is not clear if kinzhal hit a moving or static ship. So "moving or static" is unclear at this point of time

    I believe I heard of a static test against a barge, though I can no longer even find a link or source for that either.
