Support SouthFront

TASS reports (source):

A missile battalion of the Northern Fleet’s tactical group armed with Bastion coastal defense systems and stationed on the Alexandra Land of the Franz Joseph Land archipelago in the Arctic passed a final check for the winter training period, the Fleet’s press office reported on Friday.

“During the final check, the missile troops practiced going on alert, preparing the hardware and bringing it out of hangars, making a march and deploying Bastion launchers in a positioning area on the coast of the Barents Sea,” the press office said in a statement.

The drills were held with the help of the computer generated simulation of the tactical situation without physical launches and were primarily aimed at checking whether the Bastion combat teams were complying with the required time procedures for deploying the launchers in the Arctic under low temperatures, the Fleet’s press office specified.

The Bastion coastal defense missile systems armed with Oniks supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles are in service with the Northern Fleet’s Arctic units stationed on the Alexandra Land and Kotelny islands.

The Bastion coastal defense system with the standardized Yakhont (Oniks) supersonic homing anti-ship cruise missile 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 sole ships and radar-contrast land targets under intensive fire and electronic counter-measures.

Average warship travels at perhaps 30-40 kts, Bastion ASM flies at Mach 2. Hmm.

Haha. Thats the dilemma in hitting all moving targets as well as the avoiding.

I will refer to the 1981 in one of its last Youtubes. The solution to all win is not to fight.


Solution to all wars is to strike first and hard and take no prisoners. This is a free courtesy lesson!

Lol it’s evading the point defence not catching the ships that requires the speed :)

Deterrence is gold.


I picked up my Norinco Hawk 982 12 guage from the gunsmith in the middle of an ET/ED contact work specops build in case I need it for harvesting food. Some of the accessories installations need machine tool work for completion and I don’t need them for hunting. The recoil management suspension system installation for the heavier magnum large dangerous game loads is complete.

I’ve had enough experience with non conventional injury and close calls that I want weapons capable of mitigating violence and aggression with bigfoots and off planet hostilities if it gets to that. My goal is peaceful and positive interaction. But sometimes things don’t work out that way. So I’d rather be safe than sorry that I didn’t have the equipment that could have gotten the job done when I needed it.
