The air defence missile system is capable of hitting air targets located within an up to 150-kilometer (93-mile) radius and at an altitude of up to 30 kilometers.

Russia's Admiral Gorshkov-class frigates (Project 22350) have a displacement of 4,500 tonnes, a top speed of 29 knots and can go for up to 15 days without resupplying.

In November, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that more than 10 launches of Poliment-Redut missiles on various types of targets had been conducted during state tests in the Northern Fleet.
