The unit will perform the first live firing at sea targets set in the ranges of combat training in the Barents Sea. The unit was previously equipped with 4K51 Frontier (SS-N-2C Styx) and P-35B Redoubt (SSC-1B Sepal).

Bastion-P was accepted for service in 2010. Three battalions of Bastion-P went to service with the 11th independent missile and artillery brigade (Black Sea fleet) located near Anapa. Every battalion includes four SPL, four TL, MCP and technical support systems. The unit can be complemented with target designation vehicle equipped with Monolith-B radar.

Following Crimea's integration into Russia, one Bastion-P battalion of the 11th brigade was transferred to the vicinity of Sevastopol. On September 9, 2014 it participated in drills, firing at several sea targets located at 90 km range. According to Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD), all targets were destroyed. Previously, Vietnam and Syria received, respectively, one and two batallions of Bastion-P CMMS in export modification.
