The Club missiles are known by NATO as the SS-N-27 “Sizzler.”

The CLUB-M is a multifunctional mobile coastal missile system designed to destroy the following target types:

  • antiship missiles against various types of surface ships (both individual and within a group) in the conditions of organized enemy countermeasures;
  • missiles against ground targets stationary objects on enemy territories (administrative and economic centers, munition depots and petrochemical storages, command centers, port and airfield infrastructures, etc.).
