The K-300P Bastion-P (NATO reporting name SSC-5) is a Russian mobile coastal defence missile system. The system is developed together with the Belarus company Tekhnosoyuzproekt.

The system is designed for destruction of various surface ships from enemy's landing squadrons, convoys, carrier strike groups, as well as single vessels and land-based radiocontrast targets in conditions of intensive fire and electronic countermeasures. The system uses the P-800 Yakhont (SS-N-26) anti-ship cruise missiles and has a maximum range of 300 km. The missile system is mounted on a mobile vehicle that can deploy its missiles in under five minutes and remain on active standby over a period of 3–5 days.

On 2 March 2011 it was reported that Russia will deploy the system on the Kuril Islands in the far east.

Vietnam bought two systems in early 2011. Syria purchased two systems on 2007. The systems have been delivered to Syria in early December 2011.

In Vietnam, they are equipped for 681 Naval Unit of Vietnam People's Navy.
