That was unexpectedly serene and beautiful.

Since no one has figured it out yet.....by having it take off from the water the blast from the rocket motor won't be near the ship and as that is a small ship that`s a real issue. It also has to go below wave level so it can achieve an initial trajectory that is truer and not affected by wave action

Just did some Googling. It's the RPK-2 Viyuga rocket: Soviet design, first deployed in 1973, and still used by the Russian navy. It can be launched from a ship (as here) or by a sub and can carry a conventional or nuclear payload 28 miles at subsonic speed.

For real entertainment value, they need to plop these things into the waters off Malibu, about 50 yards from a party of surfers.
