from playing Jane's Fleet Command, i always thought this missile has a 900 kg warhead.-- (talk) 04:37, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Who posted nonsense that Granit is suplanted in favor of Sunburn??? (talk) 18:10, 12 January 2008 (UTC)Pavel Golikov. says this missile is turbojet powered, not ramjet; [1] 05:50, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)

FAS also says it weighs in at 7000 kg, not the 4000 quoted here.

FAS has been wrong in the past mate. One source isn't enough to make it true. By the way, I added an image of the Granit. I hope it helps. (USMA2010 02:19, 25 June 2006 (UTC))

any info on cost?Authouredbyanybody??? (talk) 12:50, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

P-700 was not derived from P-500, it is totally different missile. P-1000 was derived from P-500.Ходок (talk) 07:24, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

This entire article is based on non-reliable sourcesEdit

This whole article needs to be scraped for being pure comic book-like speculation that falls far short of what would be charitably called even original research.

According to, which is a legitimate WP:RS, no photographs exist of the P-700 and adds the following: "but the missile is believed to have a broad cylinder body with pointed nose. Halfway along the body is an air inlet for the turbofan or turbo-jet which is used in the cruising phase after the missile has been launched with the aid of two solid propellant boosters." Yet this article somehow has become the beneficiary of a wikipedian who created this “sketch” of the missile without citing what source of information the artist used in creating a sketch that shows a ramjet-powered missile. Ramjet makes zero sense for something traveling only Mach 1.6–2.5.

Are we to believe a mere wikipedian gained access to classified information to create a sketch? A sketch of a ramjet-powered missile that can cruise as slow as Mach 1.6?

Moreover, the article currently has this description of the missile's capabilities:

Such capabilities are absurdly fanciful for Russian computer technology of the late 1970s. Moreover, this citation:

[7.0] Soviet-Russian Naval Cruise Missiles / Chinese Cruise Missiles

...leads to nothing but a home page where such an assertion cannot be confirmed.

This article is more imaginative comic book than encyclopedic information buttressed by citations to reliable sources. (talk) 14:20, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Launch from TomskEdit

Erroneous evaluation or disinformation by МО РФ. The video shows clearly Kalibr type missile[1]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:A314:813E:7980:C837:A622:BD76:22C3 (talk) 06:50, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
