SA-N-3 Goblet (M-11 Shtorm)

The SA-N-3 Goblet (NATO reporting name) or M-11 or 4K60 Shtorm is a Soviet/Russian naval surface-to-air missile system. The system was first installed on the Moskva, an anti-submarine warfare carrier, which was commissioned in 1967, but the system was not officially accepted into service until 1969. It has no land-based counterpart. It was only deployed on Soviet/Russian vessels and was never used operationally.Development of the M-11 Storm system was first authorised on 25 July 1959. It was ultimately developed for installation in the Moskva class helicopter carrier. The design was completed in April 1962 and included a modified version of the ZIF-101 launcher, that was used with the SA-N-1 missile system. The launcher design proved to be impractical, the resulting redesign delayed production of prototypes until 1964. Between 1964 and 1966 sea-trials were conducted on the missile testbed OS-24 which had previously been the heavy cruiser Voroshilov. The system was installed on the Moskva, which was commissioned on 25 December 1967, but development continued until 1969 when it was officially accepted into service.

Development of the M-11 Storm system was first authorised on 25 July 1959. Work was carried out by Scientific Research Institute 10 (NII-10) that was also working on the SA-N-1 system. It was originally intended to be installed on the Project 1126 warship, but both the ship and missile system were canceled in June 1961. However, the missile project was re-activated only a month later for installation in the Project 1123 Moskva class helicopter carrier. The design was completed in April 1962, and included a modified version of the ZIF-101 launcher, that was used with the SA-N-1 missile system. The launcher design proved to be impractical, the resulting redesign delayed production of prototypes until 1964.

Between 1964 and 1966 sea-trials were conducted on the missile testbed OS-24 which had previously been the heavy cruiser Voroshilov.
