    I rather suspect the upgraded Onyx should be ready quicker and offer a serious increase in performance, while Zircon should be put in subs and ships first to get that fire power out there...

    Upgrading all existing Onyx missiles would improve performance the quickest... simply changing production of fuel from the old type to the new type should be a relatively cheap but useful way to increase performance across the board of all the weapon types that use that fuel.

    If it is indeed possible to retrofit this capacity, then of course!

    Russia to rearm Soviet coastal defense system in Crimea with new missiles

    The Utyos underground coastal defense missile system was built in Crimea during the Soviet period

    MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. The Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (part of Tactical Missiles Corporation) has carried out work to restore the Soviet underground coastal defense missile system ‘Utyos’ in Crimea and is considering rearming it with new missiles, Company CEO and Chief Designer Alexander Leonov told TASS on Tuesday.

    "Now the point at issue is the possible rearming of this system with new types of missiles," the chief executive said, replying to the corresponding question.

    The company started restoring the Utyos underground coastal defense system in 2014 and "carried out uneasy work but, nonetheless, fulfilled the assigned task successfully and on time," Leonov stressed.

    "The successful launches after the repair and restoration works showed that the system was ready to defend its sector of the Crimean coast," the chief executive said.

    The Utyos is a formidable weapon that can strike enemy surface forces at a range of up to 300km, he noted. "Cruisers, frigates, amphibious assault ships and missile boats - one missile will be enough to incapacitate any ship," Leonov stressed.

    The Utyos underground coastal defense missile system was built in Crimea during the Soviet period. It is armed with P-35 anti-ship missiles. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the division of the Black Sea Fleet, the Utyos turned out to be on the territory of Ukraine and during this period one battalion of this system fell into disuse while the second battalion was deactivated. The work to restore the system began after Crimea’s reintegration with Russia.

    Logistics wise two Kamaz are much less hassle than one MAZ

    Hopefully they will put Bastion on semi trailer soon, so much cheaper and simpler for areas with decent roads

    Russia to rearm Soviet coastal defense system in Crimea with new missiles


    The repair work on the Utyos coastal defense missile system was completed recently and was required because the compound operated by the Ukrainian Navy in 1996-2014 had fallen into disuse

    MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. The Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (part of Tactical Missiles Corporation) has carried out work to restore the Soviet underground coastal defense missile system Utyos in Crimea and will eventually rearm it with new missiles, Company CEO and Chief Designer Alexander Leonov told TASS on Monday.

    The repair work on the Utyos coastal defense missile system was completed just recently and was required because the compound operated by the Ukrainian Navy in 1996-2014 had fallen into disuse, the chief executive said.

    "The successful launches conducted after the repair works have shown the compound’s readiness for defending the Crimean coast. That is why, it will operate for some time with Progress missiles. Eventually, it will be rearmed with new missile types," Leonov said.

    The Progress missile has a flight range of up to 460 km. The Utyos underground coastal defense system is also used to launch target missiles.

    Russian Navy to get three battalions of Bastion coastal defense missile systems this year


    They will join coastal defense and land troops of the Pacific, Northern and Black Sea Fleets

    MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. The Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (the town of Reutov, the Moscow Region) will deliver three battalion sets of Bastion mobile coastal defense missile systems this year, Company Chief Designer and CEO Alexander Leonov said on Monday on the eve of the MAKS international aerospace exhibition.

    "At a meeting at the Defense Ministry of Russia in April this year, which discussed the fulfilment of the defense procurement plan in 2019, I reported to Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu that work was underway to manufacture and deliver three sets of Bastion coastal defense missile systems," the chief executive said.

    The Russian defense industry earlier told TASS that new Bastion coastal defense systems would join coastal defense and land troops of the Pacific, Northern and Black Sea Fleets.

    The Bastion coastal defense system with standardized Yakhont (Oniks) supersonic homing anti-ship cruise missiles went into service in the Russian troops in 2010. The Bastion is designated to strike various types of surface ships operating as part of amphibious assault formations, convoys, surface action and carrier strike groups, and also single ships and radar-contrast land targets under enemy intensive fire and electronic counter-measures.

    According to the data of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Russian Navy currently operates over 40 Bastion coastal defense systems. Specifically, they are deployed in Crimea, on the Kotelny Island (the Novosibirsk Archipelago), in the Kaliningrad Region, in Syria and on Kamchatka.

    A Bastion battalion is capable of defending a coastline stretching over 600km. The Bastion can fire Oniks missiles to a range of 500km. The firing positions can be moved away from the coastline by 200km.
