Yakhont missiles 

3M55 Oniks/P-800 Yakhont/P-800 Bolid/SSN-X-26

With wings extendedWith wings folded

The supersonic P-800 Yakhont (Gem) is a ramjet version of P-80 Zubr [SS-N-7 Starbright]. The ship, submarine and coastal-launched Yakhont is launched from the unified ampoule-shaped transport-launching container (TLC). The container is 9 m long, is 0.71 m in diameter. The firing range reaches 300 km (162 nmi.) when flying along a combined trajectory and 120 kg (265 lb.) when following only a low-altitude trajectory. Flight speed varying over the range from M=2.0 to M=2.5 is provided by the kerosene-fueled multi-mode liquid-fuel ramjet. The P-800 Bolid is the encapsulated, submarine launched version of Yakhont. An air-launched version of the missile with the take-off weight of 2,500 kg (5,507 lb.) is also being developed. The closest American counterparts, the Tomahawk and Harpoon missiles, are subsonic; the best French antiship missile, the Exocet, has a range of only 45 miles.

Zvezda Kh-35 Uran (SS-N-25 Switchblade) Uran-E shipborne missile system equipped with KH-35E anti-ship missiles

The Uran missile systems comprise 16 Kh-35 missiles – 4×4 launchers with pressurised transport-launching containers. The Uran system now serves as armament of Project 1149.8 missile equipped gun boats and other vessels. A coastal defense variant and, more recently, an antiaircraft variant were later developed on the basis of this missile.The Kh-35 missile has a normal aerodynamic design and an aluminium-alloy airframe. The missile’s power plant consists of a solid-fuel booster and a turbojet powerplant. The missile’s take-off weight is 750 kilograms, the warhead weighs 150 kilograms with a range of up to 130 kilometres.

The Kh-35U anti-ship aircraft missile (Article 78U), propelled by a turbojet engine, flies toward its target at a speed of about the 300 m/s at an extremely low altitude. Owing to its high-precision radio-altimeter, the missile can skim the sea waves at an altitude of 3-5 metres at the terminal phase of trajectory. Its guidance system combines inertial guidance for during the initial flight stage and active-radar guidance during the remaining flight stage.

The missile has a folding wing and a folding tail fin.For use by coastal or shipborne launchers the missile is equipped with a rocket starter-accelerator, a container-type launcher having room for four missiles.

Artillery 1 x A-190-5P-10E, 100mm


100-mm А190 Lightweight Multipurpose Naval Gun is a single-barrel turreted automatic gun that may be installed on ships with the displacement of 500 t and more. Upon the operator’s command the fire control module automatically turns the artillery system to standby or combat-ready position, ensures ammunition selection and feeding, gun laying and firing. As a result, the artillery system has minimum response time and high rate of fire.

Main technical data

Rate of fire, rpm up to 80
Maximum firing range, km over 20
Elevation, degree -15 to +85
Training, degree ±170
Projectile weight, kg 15,6
Number of ready-to-fire rounds 80
Weight, t 15

А190 Naval Gun can fire HE (impact fuze) and AA (time fuze) case ammunitions.
The main advantages of А190 system:
– automatic firing mode with main and back-up control means and the capability to operate in EW battlefield environment;
– minimal dead zones when engaging various target types;
– fast reaction (2…5 sec) to counter air threats. Quick shift of fire when engaging multiple targets.

The upgraded version designated as А190-01 provides significant increase in combat effectiveness. High survivability, reliability and combat effectiveness make it possible to operate the gun in various environments day and night all year around. Data @burevestnik.com

Air defense

1 x Kashtan

Kashtan CIWS

The command module detects and tracks threats, distributes targeting data to the combat modules, and interrogates IFF of approaching threats. The command module has a 3-D target detection radar, and an all weather multi-band integrated control system. Depending on the number of installed combat modules, the system can engage multiple targets simultaneously. The combat modules automatically track using either radar, electro-optronic control system (such as FLIRs) or both, and then engages targets with missiles and guns.

The guns used in the Kashtan are the GSh-30K six-barrel 30 mm rotary cannon. Individually, each GSh-30K has a higher rate of fire compared to other guns used by other CIWS such as the GAU-8 on the Goalkeeper and the M61 Vulcan on the Phalanx. Along with a high rate of fire, the fairly heavy round (390 g or 14 oz) used by the Kashtan is comparable to the DPU rounds of the GAU-8 Avenger (425 g or 15.0 oz), although the muzzle velocity (and therefore both the kinetic energy and effective range) is slightly lower, partially offsetting the high caliber and rate of fire.

3Ts-25E target designation radar is designed to provide ECM-resistant secure information on long-range surface (and partly air) tactical situation using active and passive assets. The radar accomplishes the following tasks:

  • acquisition and automatic tracking of sur-face targets, determination of their coordi-nates and movement parameters;
  • air/surface target detection, classificationand location based on their electronicequipment emissions;
  • target identification by means of coupledIFF interrogators;
  • generation and transfer of target designa-tion data to ship’s automated missile/torpe-do weapons control system, and surface sit-uation data to combat information manage-ment system;
  • interaction with external data sources (e.g.task force ships, air reconnaissance/designa-tion systems, etc.) via ship’s standard andspecial communication systems integratedwith the radar as specified bythe ship designer;
  • operation in the navigation mode to ensuresafety of navigation.


The radar makes coordinated use of active and passive channels to acquire and designate targets. It boasts increased operational range thanks to employment of high-energy active channel, advanced methods of signal genera-tion and complex modulated signal process-ing, coupled with passive channel data, and requirements of covert operation, in severe ECM and sea clutter conditions.

The active channel uses a multiprocessor system to generate probing signals and radar data. It is integrated with a multi-computer secondary data processing, control and display network.

The passive channel performs hard-ware/software-based analysis and classification of incoming radar signals by comparing their parameters with those available in the data-base (up to 1,000 entries).
