Third mobile coastal defense missile system Bastion-P was delivered to Russia's Black Sea Fleet (BSF) late in 2010, reported RIA Novosti referring to a source in defense industry.

According to the source, "all systems were attached to BSF 11th Coastal Defense Missile Brigade located near Anapa, Krasnodar region".

First two systems were delivered to BSF early in 2010, informs RIA Novosti.

Mobile coastal defense missile system K-300P Bastion-P is one of the world's most advanced ones. It constitutes a mobile missile system armed with standard supersonic antiship missile K-310 Yakhont. The system is designed for destruction of various surface ships from enemy's landing squadrons, convoys, carrier strike groups, as well as single vessels and land-based radiocontrast targets in conditions of intensive fire and electronic countermeasures. Effective range of the system is up to 300 km. Bastion missile system is capable to protect over 600 km of coast line from enemy landing operations.

Standard configuration of the system consists of four self-propelled launchers K-340P with two antiship missiles Yakhont launching containers (as for some reports Ц up to three), one or two command trucks K380R, combat alert vehicle, and four transporter loaders. Support equipment includes maintenance facilities and training aids. Number of launchers, transporter loaders, and command trucks varies depending on a customer's wishes.

Having designed the missile and software, NPO Mashinostroyenia integrated all systems. The antiship missile is produced by PO Strela (Orenburg); Belorussian company Tekhnosoyuzproekt is responsible for development and manufacturing of self-propelled frame for launchers and transporter loaders.

Deployment time of Bastion missile system does not exceed 5 minutes; afterwards, the battery is ready to launch 8 antiship missiles. Fire position can be located at the distance up to 200 km from coastline. After deployment, the battery can remain standby from 3 to 5 days depending on fuel reserve.
