Description: The S-300F, SA-N-6 Grumble NATO-codename and Rif Russian nickname, is a derivative of proven S-300 Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) system designed to protect surface ships against advanced airborne threats. The system can engage up to 6 targets simultaneously with 2 missiles per target ensuring the threat kill. A secondary short-range anti-ship capability is also provided by the Rif system.

The Rif system has been designed to engage high speed aircraft and missiles flying at up to Mach 4 at long ranges, and surface ships such as carriers and electronic countermeasures ships. It employs the S-300 missiles (5V55?) embedded in the ship's hull like an VLS system. The ship's sensors and fire control systems provide the required data and support to effectively launch and direct the 5V55 missiles.

The Rif system has been designed to be integrated on ships featuring at least 8,000 tons of displacement. It was introduced in 1982 aboard Soviet cruisers.
