How does Russia protect its border with Finland after Helsinki’s NATO entry?
Russia has been conducting regular missile drills near the Gulf of Finland in a bid to strengthen its border after Helsinki rushed into joining NATO last year. During the drills, the Russian military used the Bal and Bastion mobile coastal missile systems. Let’s explore them in more detail:
The GRAU 3K60 Bal (Ball):
▪️ contains typically with 4 launchers carrying Kh-35 “Uran” anti-ship missiles that have a range of up to 250 km (150 miles).
▪️ can fire 32 missiles in a salvo and has another 32 missiles in its ammunition load.
▪️ can disrupt a combat task of the enemy’s large surface action group or its amphibious assault force or convoy.
The K-300P Bastion-P:
▪️ can engage enemy surface ships, including carrier battle groups, convoys, and landing craft.
▪️ contains P-800 Oniks or Yakhont supersonic anti-ship missiles, which have a range of up to 300 km (186 miles).
▪️ can also fire the state-of-the-art Zircon hypersonic missiles, which remain invulnerable to any enemy air defenses, including American-made Patriot systems.
