 [THUMBNAIL] SS-N-14 Silex missile launcher aboard the 'KARA' class cruiser Kerch at Sevastopol, 8/1995. The two missiles on the left are anti-ship missiles (SSM); the two on the right are anti-submarine (ASW) missiles. Most references do not list the SSM variant of this missile. The apparent difference between top and bottom missiles is an illusion of the lens.
