RPK-6 Vodopad/RPK-7 Veter
||This article needs attention from an expert on the subject. (March 2011)|
Both missiles were given the same United States Navy designation SS-N-16 and NATO designation Stallion.
Both missiles were torpedo-tube launched, with a solid-fuel rocket engine to power them above the surface. Both missiles were dual-role; they could be armed with either a 400 mm anti-submarine torpedo or a nuclear depth charge.
The Veter's increased range of approximately 100 kilometers was an impressive boost over its predecessor the SS-N-15 Starfish, which could only reach half the distance.
