Pictures taken before the Priluki show two large missile launchers on the stern.
[Global Network Military Dec. 18] According to Russian Satellite News Agency, Ukrainian Military Network released a photo of a ship without missile launcher, showing that the KT-97M launcher of the P-15M termite anti-ship missile has been dismantled by the Ukrainian Navys only missile ship, Priluki (port number P153).
According to the ships technical design, it is reported that the missile ship should be equipped with Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missile. However, the missile prototype of the Soviet anti-ship missile X35 has not passed the Ukrainian national test so far.
In the latest photo of the Priluki, the missile launcher at the stern of the ship has been dismantled.
The missile ship Priluki (206MP Tornado) was installed in the Soviet Navy in 1980 and transferred to Ukraine in 1996. In addition to AK-176M and AK-630M artillery devices, there are two P-15M termite launchers of Soviet anti-ship missiles (developed in the mid-1960s). However, after Crimea merged into Russia, the spare ammunition of missile boats remained on the Crimean Peninsula.
