CLUB-M Multi-Purpose Mobile Coastal Missile System is intended for engaging the following types of targets from the coast (up to 100 km from the coastline) under deliberate adversary countermeasures:
- surface ships of various types and classes (both single and in groups) – by anti-ship missiles (3М-54KE, 3М-54KE1);
- stationary objects on the enemy territory (administrative centers, weapon and fuel depots, force control centers, sea terminals, air-fields etc.) – by land-attack missiles (3М-14KE).
Effectiveness of target engagement is ensured by single firing from any launcher as well as salvo firing from several launchers.
Mobile active and passive radar means of target acquisition and designation enable to implement flexible detection strategy, specifically covert detection.
It is possible to obtain online data from external sources of reconnaissance and target designation.
3М-54KE anti-ship missiles
М-54KE1 anti-ship missiles
3М-14KE land-attack missiles
The 3M-54E missile has a range of 300 km. For the majority of its trajectory it flies at a high subsonic speed. The first stage drops off when the missile reaches the prescribed altitude and its second stage sustainer engine goes into action. This is the time when the missile’s wing and tail assembly unfold. The altitude of its flight goes down to 10-15 metres above the sea surface and the missile heads towards the target in accordance with the target designations, fed before the start into the memory of its board guidance system. The targeting on the cruise sector of the trajectory is effected by an inertia navigation system. The end sector of the missile’s flight with the homing head active proceeds only five metres above the water surface. At 60 km from its target the third, solid-fuel stage separates from the missile, accelerates to supersonic speed and overcomes the defence zone of the target vessel
In spite of its relatively small launch weight of 1,570 kilograms, the missile has a range of 300 kilometres and a powerful 450-kilogram warhead, which can blow up very large surface craft. The missile’s moderate weight allows even warships with a small displacement to take aboard quite a few of such deadly weapons.

The coastal surface and air reconnaissance system Monolit-B is intended for long-range, over the horizon detection and tracking of surface targets using integrated means of active and passive radio detection and ranging, means of automated reception and processing of information on surface situation obtained from the carriers equipped with articles Mineral-ME and special interfacing equipment and from external information sources (ships, helicopters, lookout posts) over standard communication lines in the telephone mode, and also for generation and output of target designation data to missile weapon control systems.
The coastal system provides
- Detection, tracking and classification of surface targets using an active radar
- Long-range, over the horizon detection and classification of radiating radars using the means of passive radio detection and ranging
- Determination of the coordinates of radiating radars using detection and target designation in the passive mode
- Identification of surface targets nationality based on the friend-or-foe principle
- Automated acquisition, processing and display of the data on surface situation received from the interactive objects and data sources
- Generation and output of surface situation and target designation data to the control systems of the mobile coastal missile systems (MCMS) Bastion
- Drawing up, editing or input of a prearranged electronic plan for execution of the assigned combat or training tasks
- Execution of a march to the assigned positions with operational control of own spatial position and that of the interactive objects
- Deployment on both non-surveyed and pre-surveyed positions
- Exchange of clear and encrypted messages with the interactive objects using standard communication lines in motion, at halts, and during operation at position
- Automated generation and transmission of combat activity control commands, signals and directives to the controlled interactive objects, reception and automated processing of reports and acknowledgements
- Reception and automated processing of combat activity control commands, signals and directives coming from the control objects
- Automated generation and transmission of reports and acknowledgements.
The active radar serves for execution of the following tasks
- Surface situation coverage
- Detection, classification, coordinate determination, and tracking of surface targets
- Identification of tracked surface targets nationality using interfaced equipment for nationality identifications
- Generation and output of target designation data to the mutual data exchange and orientation radar (DEORdr) Mineral-ME3
The passive radar serves for execution of the following tasks
- Long-range, over the horizon detection of radiating radars
- Determination of radiation parameters
- Classification of the received signals by the radiating radar type
- Generation of the data on observed surface situation and output of this data to the DEORdr.
The DEORdr provides
- Mutual orientation of the Monolit-B coastal system vehicles
- Joint processing of the data on surface targets received from the integrated means of active and passive radio detection and ranging and from other data sources equipped with the equipment providing logical and physical interface with the Monolit-B coastal system
- Generation of target designation data
Range of surface targets detection with the active radar
- under normal propagation conditions with antenna positioned at height of 9 to 12 above sea level: 35 km
- with antenna positioned at height of 9 to 12 m above sea level and with driven waveguide available: 90 to 100 km
- under super refraction conditions: up to 250 km
Range of surface targets detection with the passive radar: up to 450 km
Maximum number of tracked targets
- with active radar: 30
- with the passive radar in detection mode: 50
