Rostec’s subsidiary Tula KBP introduces its new naval missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system Pantsir-ME that provides protection against modern air threats, including low-flying and small-size unmanned aerial vehicles.
The creation of the new weapon system Pantsir-ME provides reliable protection for ships against air threats with absolute probability virtually equal to 1, including protection against low-altitude anti-ship missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles. The key feature of the systems created by KBP is that they can first open fire on a target with missiles and then, in the dead zone of anti-aircraft missiles, use artillery armaments, if the target is not destroyed.
“One of the key imperatives in the strategy of Rostec weapons cluster is the development and creation of new weapons, including anti-aircraft missile systems. The development of the Pantsir-ME system is a consistent element in the implementation of this strategy. The creation of almost each primary system required brand-new high-tech solutions. As a result, the destructive potential of Pantsir-ME is 3-4 times higher than that of Kashtan-M,” says CEO of Rostec Sergey Chemezov. “Thus, the missile intercept zone has been increased from 10 to 20 kilometers in length and from 3 to 15 kilometers in height. All the stages of combat performance – from target search to firing – are performed in motion. The combined use of radar and optical control systems provides an all-weather 24/7 operation. All the system processes are automated, the crew ensures only supervision and control.”
High engagement effectiveness is determined by the new features implemented in the Pantsir-ME system.
The modular design remains intact: 1 command module and up to 4 combat modules depending on ship type, which allows a flexible defence. The combined missile and artillery armaments ensure an effective engagement of all types of targets within the whole range of field conditions and counter-weapons with a potential for further development until 2020 – 2025.
The combat module of Pantsir-ME includes a multifunction radar station with a phased antenna and an intercept missile with an engagement range of 20 km, which ensures simultaneous engagement of 4 targets, as well as an engagement of new types, updated anti-ship missiles and small-size air threats and surface targets. The combat module can work autonomously and as part of a cell of 4 modules. The system can be installed on ships with a displacement of 300 tonnes and more.
Russian armed forces showcased the newly developed Tor-M2DT short-range air defense missile systems and Pantsir-SA surface-to-air missile system for the first time in a public event during Russias Victory Day parade today. Designed to operate in the Arctic, Tor-M2DT and Pantsir-SA were mounted on Vityaz articulated tracked vehicles, which proved to be highly successful in getting the systems over Arctic-style hummocky ground during trials, Sputnik reports
