The 4K44 Redut Variant SPU-35V Mobile Coastal Defense System

 

The 4K44 Redut was designed in 1963 to replace the aging SS-C-2 coastal defense missile batteries. The 4K44 Redut uses the P-5 Pyatyorka cruise missile, also known as the SS-N-3B. The missile has a 1,000 kg warhead and a range of 450 km. It has a maximum speed of Mach 0.9. The Redut is currently available in two versions: the SPU-35V (pictured), which is based on the BAZ-135MB chassis (the most common variant), and the 4K44 Utes, which is a fixed position version with two launch tubes and is only deployed in Sevastopol and the Kildin Island in the Kola Peninsula. The system is slated to eventually be replaced by the K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defense system, which uses the advanced P-800 Yakhont (SS-N-26) anti-ship cruise missiles.
