Description: The RPK-8 Zapad is ship-based anti-submarine rocket system designed to protected surface ships from hostile submarines, torpedoes and combat swimmers. The RPK-8 weapon system comprises the RBU-6000 12-tube rocket launcher, 212mm 90R anti-submarine rocket, fire control system, ammo loading system and ground support equipment. The target designation is provided through the ship's sonar system. The 90R rocket carries a projectile fitted with a high-explosive shaped charge that separates from its carrier when entering into the water. The projectile's effective homing head search radius is 130 meters. The RPK-8 weapon system is effective against underwater threats at ranges from 600 meters to 4,300 meters. The RPK-8 rocket launcher weighs 9,000 kilogram fully loaded and 3,500 kg empty. The magazine capacity of the RPK-8 stores 25 or 61 additional rockets. In June 2017 Splav introduced the 90R1 improved rocket and Magnesit-MN torpedo decoy.
