Russia will complete tests of a new short-range air defense missile-gun system by the end of 2007
Russia will complete tests of a new short-range air defense missile-gun system by the end of 2007, a designer bureau official said Wednesday. Pantsyr-S1 is a short-range, mobile air defense system, combining two 30mm anti-aircraft guns and 12 surface-to-air missiles. It can simultaneously engage two separate targets, ranging from aircraft to missiles and guided bombs. "The Pantsyr S1 short-range air defense system is designed to provide point defense of key military and industrial facilities and air defense support for military units during air and ground operations," said Alexander Belotserkovsky, an official from Russia's KBP Instrument Design Bureau, which manufactures the system. Pantsyr S1 is currently being tested during joint Air Force and Air Defense Forces exercises at the Ashukuk testing grounds in southern Russia. The system will replace the Tunguska M1 complex in the Russian military following the successful completion of testing. Russia has also signed Pantsyr S1 sales contracts with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan, and Syria, and is currently in talks with Algeria on the deliveries of this highly sought-after system. "We have concluded $2.6 billion worth of contracts for the delivery of this system," the company CEO said last year.
