“By now, the Russian Navy has created a unique two-layered system to protect the coastline, sea lanes, control territorial waters and strike ground and sea targets using the data of mobile coastal defence missile systems. With their joint use, especially large targets are struck at distant approaches (up to 300 kilometres) by supersonic missiles of the Bastion coastal defence missile system and at a distance of 260 kilometres and less these efforts are augmented by the Bal system,” the chief executive explained.

According to Obnosov, this layered system is capable of striking any surface and coastal targets within the engagement area.

“Moreover, it features a high cost/efficiency ratio, which is important in the current conditions,” he added.

As reminded, Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation was set up in March 2003 by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree of January 24, 2002. The corporation became the Russian defence industry’s first integrated structure that concentrated scientific and production resources for developing advanced missiles and tactical missile systems.
