[It used to be the best (only*?*) way to sink a ship of the line was cannon fire and/or torpedoes.
Nowadays all it takes is a rowboat and a couple of R-360 Neptune anti-ship missiles.]
The Moskva’s last moments: Audio recording reveals crew frantically calling for help from Putin’s sinking flagship and saying ‘communication with bridge is cut’ as sirens blare

R-360 Neptune (Ukrainian: ?-360 «???», romanized: R-360 “Neptun”) is a Ukrainian anti-ship cruise missile developed by the Luch Design Bureau.
Neptune’s design is based on the Soviet Kh-35 anti-ship missile, with substantially improved range and electronics.
The system requirement was for a single missile to defeat surface warships and transport vessels with a displacement of up to 5,000 tons, either in convoys or moving individually.
The system entered service with the Ukrainian Navy in March 2021.
