Vietnamese media show Bastion-P mobile coastal defence missile system

Vietnamese state media revealed video of new Bastion-P mobile coastal defence missile system.

The release of the video footage by Vietnam Defence Television channel on August 11, 2016 shown the Russian-made K-300P Bastion-P (SSC-5 ‘Stooge’) mobile coastal defence missile system.

The design of Bastion-P allows it to float force to destroy enemy ships in all weather conditions, even in noisy environments enhanced electron.

Yakhont missile weighs about 3 tonnes, 8.9 m long, 0.7 m trunk diameter, 1.7 m wingspan. Shells are designed with large 4-door navigation in near the tail, the nose is in the air intakes for engine operation.

Yakhont jet engine’s speed allows more than 2 times the speed of sound. With such a large maximum velocity, very difficult opponents are easily destroyed by explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 200-250kg.

Navigation system of the Yakhont missile launchers is inertial navigation programmed. In the approach phase target, lead investor active radar (on missiles) will activate the search; detect targets at a distance of 75km.

Yakhont missile’s range depends on flight mode: fly high orbit – low to allow the mixture to reach a range of 300 kilometres; low orbital flight – a low gain range of 120km.
