By the end of the year, two Bastion complexes will arrive at the Northern and Pacific fleets (three complexes have already entered service with the coastal units).
According to the Russian Minister of Defense, in the 2016, the Russian Navy will also arm itself with five new coastal missile systems, after which this kind of weapons will be supplied to the troops in the amount of four complexes annually.
As a result, before 2021, we will be able to completely re-equip the coastal missile units with modern weapons.
