Description: The Palma is a ship-based air defense system designed to engage rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, aerial bombs, anti-ship cruise missiles, small displacement vessels and small targets onshore. The weapon system consists of two 30mm six-barrel AO-18KD/6K30GSh automatic cannons and up to eight Sosna-R laser-guided hypersonic surface-to-air missiles (two 3R-99E firing modules). All in, the Palma can engage up to six targets simultaneously at distances between 200 and 8,000 meters and flying at a maximum altitude of 3,500 meters. The weapon system only takes three-to-five seconds to get ready to fire.

The 30mm AO-18KD cannons range varies between 200 and 4,000 meters and flying below 3,000 meters. The ammunition load is 1,500 rounds of armor piercing or high explosive fragmentation and incendiary ammunition. The guns on a 3S-89 mount feature a maximum rate of fire of 10,000 rounds per minute. The Sosna missile system is effective against airborne targets at altitudes between 2 and 3,500 meters and ranges between 1,300 and 8,000 meters. The ECM and jamming-resistant fire control system provided to Palma includes 3V-89 TV and Infrared cameras, laser range-finder, laser beam missile guidance system and 3Ts-99 target acquisition radar.
