BAL Coastal Missile System Display Model
Russian Army, Russia


Scale 1:72 / finished model 

The Bal Coastal Defense Missile System consists of a MAZ MZKT-7930 8x8 high-mobililty chassis carrying eight cylindrical launch tubes equipped with Kh-35 Anti-Ship Cruise Missiles. The Kh-35 is a sea-skimming missile. It is also referred as 3M24. It has broadly similar performance to that of the French Exocet and Franco-Italian OTOMAT anti-ship missiles. In terms of range and destructive power the Kh-35 slightly looses to a US Harpoon missile. A typical Bal battery includes up to 4 launcher vehicles with missiles, up to 4 associated reloading vehicles and up to 2 command posts. All of these components are based on the same MZKT-7930 chassis and can be briefly redeployed. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the launcher vehicles for firing from a new position. The launcher vehicles receive targeting data from the dedicated command post vehicles, or alternatively, from external sources.

Designed as a Self-Propelled Coastal Defense Anti-Ship Cruise Missile System Gun, the BAL first entered service in 2004.
