Rostec Offers Mobile Fire Units For MANPADS
9K333 Verba MANPADS

Rostec will showcase a new mobile fire control unit for MANPADS (man-portable air-Defense systems) at the ongoing DEFEXPO-2016 land and naval systems exhibition in Goa, India.

"UIMC will present a mobile fire control unit for anti-aircraft Defense system at the DefExpo 2016," the press service said in a statement.

Rosoboronexport will also showcase newest Russian-made man-portable air defence missile system (MANPADS) “Verba” during the show.

The mobile unit is of compact size, has full autonomy, is easy to transport and can be used on areas difficult to access. The equipment provides coordination with higher command posts and gunners, tracking of air targets with the use of information from external radars, target acquisition, as well as the reception and creation of reports on tasks implementation.

The MANPADS boasts of enhanced capability of engaging small-size targets with low thermal signatures such as cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Verba MANPADS can be also mounted on various land, maritime and airborne platforms. Joint employment of the 9M336 missiles of the Verba MANPADS, combat control set of equipment and launch modules makes it possible to build on their basis light-weight mobile close-in air defence missile systems, or to include these assets into existing air defence missile and artillery systems.
