Makhachkala, February 1, 2020. The Russian Caspian Flotilla has received the Bal coastal defense missile system, the official statement of press office of the Russian Southern Military District runs. “The first Bal coastal defense missile system has entered service with the Caspian Flotilla. Its official handover has taken place in the Republic of Dagestan.”

The press service underlines the importance of the Bal system to improving coastal defense in the Caspian area, noting that “Most of its flight time, a missile flies over the sea surface, which makes it possible to save munitions and complicates its interception and destruction by anti-missile defense capabilities. One Bal launcher is capable of firing a salvo of over 50 missiles in no time.”

The Bal missile launchers are based on the mobile MZKT-7930 wheeled chassis, enabling them to reposition. The Bal system has a nominal coverage range of up to 260 kilometers.  As the statement noted, the systems were handed over in Dagestan and, if based around Kaspiysk – where the flotilla’s headquarters are being relocated to, away from Astrakhan – a significant portion of the Caspian Sea can be covered by the system.
