The K-300P Bastion-P (NATO reporting name SSC-5)[1] 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 Oniks (Yakhont, SS-N-26 "Strobile") anti-ship cruise missile and has a maximum range of 300 km. 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.[2][3]

On 2 March 2011, it was reported that Russia would be deploying the system on the Kuril Islands in the Far East.[4]

On 15 March 2015, it was reported that Russia had actually deployed the system on the Crimea.[5][6]
