Description: The Bal-E is a mobile coastal defense missile system equipped with Uran/Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missiles intended to control straits, sea lines of communications and territorial waters. In addition, Bal-E can protect naval bases, strategic installations and coastal infrastructure as well as defending shore areas against amphibious landings. The weapons, sensors and the reload and support means are mounted on 8x8 MAZ 7930 wheeled chassis which provides high mobility and top speed of 60 kph on road or 20 kph cross country. Once arrived into a given location, the Bal-E only needs 10 minutes to get ready-to-fire its 3M24/Kh-35 missiles. In September 2013, the Russian Navy's Coast Guard Troops announced that they will be receiving 20 Bal and Bastion missile systems through 2020.

A single Bal-E coastal missile system consists of up to two command, control and communications vehicles; up to four self-propelled launcher vehicles with eight kh-35 missiles each; and up to four transport/reload vehicles with eight missiles each. The command post vehicle is equipped with a target acquisition radar. The missile transport vehicle takes between 30 to 40 minutes to reload a launcher vehicle. The launcher vehicle can perform a consecutive missile firing within three seconds. The Bal-E coastal defense system can perform missile launch from locations at sea-level or at up to 1,000 meters of altitude and up to 10 kilometers inland from shore. The Russian Armed Forces Bal system may feature a maximum range of 300 kilometers firing Kh-35U missiles.
