           Development of the missile "Vulcan" was launched by Experimental Design Bureau-52, according to Resolution from May, 15, 1979. Missile "Vulcan" became a further development of missile "Basalt" and presumably has the same firing range and maximum speed. The missile weight was increased by 1-2 tons.
