Description: The 9K96 Poliment-Redut, formerly Uragan or 'Hurricane' in English, is a new shipborne air defense system originally designed for the Project 22350 class frigates being built for the Russian Navy. The Project 20380 and Project 20385 class corvettes are also equipped with this a down-scaled version of this state-of-the-art air defense system. The new missile system is a navalized version of the land-based Vityaz medium-range air defense system build around the 9M96 highly maneuverable missile family originally developed for the S-400 long-range air defense system. The missile system is able to engage up to 16 airborne targets simultaneously. The Poliment-Redut system will be deployed with a new long-range surface-to-air missile being developed by the Almaz-Antei Concern by 2020.
