Description: The Medvedka, also known as RPK-9 in Russia and SS-N-29 in the West, is a compact anti-submarine weapon system intended for installation onboard surface ships displacing at least 350 tons. The weapon system comprises missiles, two/four/eight 440mm diameter tubes vertical or inclined launchers, fire control system and ground support equipment. The Medvedka achieved initial operational capability with the Russian Navy in the late 1990s or early 2000s. It is expected to be installed on the Russian Navy's small missile boats, corvettes and frigates.
The Medvedka is a non-guided, subsonic, solid-propellant missile fitted with a MPT-1UE anti-submarine torpedo warhead. The homing torpedo is released using a parachute and is qualified for operations at shallow water and Sea State 6. All in the weapon system has a maximum range of 20 kilometers. The MPT-1UE torpedo weighs 285 kg and is 3.05 meters in length and 324mm in diameter. The weapon system is ready to fire its first missile in 15 seconds and can launch the second missile in six seconds. The two-missile mount weighs about 9.2t, the four- and eight-missile variants weigh 12t and 19.4t respectively.
