4K60 M-11 Shtorm (SA-N-3 Goblet) - 07/04/15 07:14 PM

The 4K60 & 4K65 M-11 Shtorm/SA-N-3 Goblet missile system was used on the Project 1123 "Kondor"/Moskva-class, Project 1134 "Berkut"/Kresta I-class, Project 1134A "Berkut-A"/Kresta II-class, and Project 1134B "Berkut-B"/Kara-class cruisers as well as the Project 1143 "Krechyet"/Kiev-class carriers. As far as I know it is also the only Soviet naval SAM system not to have a land based counterpart.

I was wondering if anyone has any accurate information about this missile system? Most easily accessible western sources seem to be somewhat inaccurate or contradictory to me.

What are you interested of? biggrin

Soviet Navy (similarly to the Soviet Army) required a short and medium range SAM system.

M-1 Volna with 4K90 (and later 4K91) missiles was the short range system. (SA-N-1)
It uses the same missile as the S-125 Neva (SA-3) system.

M-2 Volhov-M with 13DM missile was the medium range system. (SA-N-2)
It uses the same missile as the S-75 Desna (SA-2) system.

The NAVY was not really happy about the later system.
They wanted a lighter, single staged missile, with similar capabilities as the M-2.
This replacement was the M-11 Sthorm system (SA-N-3) with the 4K60 missile.

Its GROM (Head Lights) guidance system has one target, and 2 missile channels.

The lower two larger parabola tracks the target, similarly as the Volhov (Narrow Beam/LORO) antennas.
The upper smaller pairs track the two missile, ala KRUG/OSA.
The smaller parabola between and under of the target trackers, is the guidance command antenna for both missile channels.
