US officials have revealed that explosions reported at a key Syrian port on July 5 were likely the result of an Israeli airstrike.

Three officials spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, referring to the pre-dawn explosions in the city of Latakia as an Israeli operation which allegedly targeted Russian-made Yakhot anti-ship missiles.

The Yakhont is a cruise missile with a range of 300 kilometers, capable of delivering a warhead weighing in at 250 kilograms. Russia supplied Syria's armed forces with a Yakhont missile battery in 2011.

Russia concentrated on developing anti-ship missiles

and what they have come up with is pretty impressive.

Even the generation before the Yakhont - NATO designation"Sunburn" and
it's longer-range version "Onyx" are far more advanced than anything the US
Navy has faced in combat. The Iranians are thought to have improved the
Sunburn - which can be launched from a truck and has them in large numbers.

The Yakhont is supposed to be considerably more advanced yet (almost Mach
3 versus Mach 2 for Sunburn class).

There has never been a conflict in which antiship missiles have been used in large
numbers - I don't get the impression the US Navy is very interested in finding out
how that would play out in the Persian Gulf.

Good article here:
