The K-300P Bastion-P (NATO reporting name SSC-5, Russian Navy 3M55) is a Russian mobile coastal defence missile system. The system was developed together with the Belarus company Tekhnosoyuzproekt.
The system is designed for the destruction of various surface ships from an 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. The system uses the P-800 Onix (SS-N-26) anti-ship cruise missile and has a maximum range of 300 km (Russian non-export model is though to have a range of up to 600 km in hi-lo flight path). The missile system is mounted on a mobile vehicle that can deploy its missiles in under five minutes and remain on active standby over a period of 3–5 days.
On 2 March 2011, it was reported that Russia would be deploying the system on the Kuril Islands in the Far East.
