    Redut silo after launch of a 9M96. Lots of space for a fatter missile.

    Yeah I always wondered why don't they deploy the 48N6 missiles in the Redut cells of project 20380?

    Lenght is an issue IMO.

    Lenght is an issue IMO.

    For Corvettes and perhaps Frigates, but in Destroyers and Cruisers and Carriers it should not be an issue.

    OK... lets look at this...

    Now look at this...

    The top is the naval Redut and the lower system mounted on the truck is the land based S-350 system... now both are supposed to use the same 9M96 and 9M100 missiles... if we compare them I think they are different... I think the four small missiles in the truck seem to match the width of the larger longer missiles, but on the naval system the four smaller missiles seem to be rather wider than the single missiles...

    BTW ignore the image in the second picture claiming to be the 9M100 as the image is the fabled R-77M with an enlarged rocket motor and folding rear grid fins that is no relation at all to the 9M100 missile.

    If we then look at this...

    We can see the 9M96 missiles can be mounted very close together and can indeed occupy the same circumference as the full sized S-300F or S-400 missiles... look at the bottom where the four tubes gets wider to the base that is the same size as the full sized missiles in the other launch positions.

    And based on the truck image this tube:

    Should be big enough for four 9M100 missiles to be stored... so how many could be fitted to properly use the available space even with just one layer... Remember this hole is the size of the big tubes on that truck...
