The P-120 is an anti-ship missile of Soviet origin. It was developed in the 1960\'s as a replacement for the P-5 Pityorka (SS-N-3 Shaddock) missile. The design is based on the P-70 Ametist (SS-N-7 Starbright). Unlike the P-70 the P-120 can be launched from both surface vessels and submarines, making it a multi-purpose missile.
The UMGT-1 is a lightweight torpedo of Soviet origin. It was developed as a more capable alternative to the AT-1 torpedo for use on the URK-5 Rastrub rocket ASW system. Aside from being delivered as payload on various types of ASW rockets the UMGT-1 can also be launched from helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. In that role it is designated AT-3.
The AK-100 is a naval gun turret of Soviet origin. It was developed in the 1970\'s as a more capable alternative to the 76mm AK-726 twin gun mount. Production has switched to the more capable A-190 naval gun turret. The A-190 is a further development of the AK-100 with a higher rate of fire.
The RBS-70 is a modern man portable SAM system of Swedish origin. It was developed as a highly mobile system to primarily protect predefined areas, not troops on the move. The manual SACLOS guidance sets this system apart from the more common infrared homing MANPADS designs.
The RSD-10 Pioner is a Cold War era intermediate range ballistic missile system with nuclear warheads of Soviet origin. In the West it is known by the NATO reporting name SS-20 Saber and it is also known as the RT-21M. The name RSD-10 Pioner stands for Raketa Sredney Dalnosti \"Pioner\", which is Russian for Medium-Range Missile \"Pioneer\". The RSD-10 was developed concurrently with the longer range RT-21 Temp-2S (SS-16) and shared a similar first and second stage. The RSD-10 was notable for two reasons. First, it was the first Soviet solid fuel nuclear missile, thus providing a true road mobile fast reaction system. Second, it was a move away from the strategy of mutually assured destruction towards smaller yield pinpoint strikes.
