  • Application aspects

A definitive advantage of the system is the availability of two armament types, as well as radar and optical control systems within single turret mount, which taken together enhance its combat efficiency as compared to its counterparts having each of the armaments separately.

When firing against an anti-ship missile the hit probability is nearing 100% as the result of its engagement at three lines – twice by surface-to-air missiles and once by guns.

High firing rate of guns with burst duration equal to 1,2 sec ensures effective destruction of targets before they reach 300-500 m line.

  • System provides:

  • installation of one to four systems on one ship;
  • effective engagement of wide variety of aerial targets;
  • capability to destroy small seaborne and ground targets;
  • high combat performance;
  • combat operation in adverse weather conditions;
  • automatic operation.
