Russia’s defence exporter, Rosoboronexport has offered to integrate its latest Tor-E2 Surface to air (SAM) system into any existing air defense system including that compatible with NATO standards.
The Tor-E2 SAM system has been developed and produced by the Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Concern.
The Tor-E2 is a short-range air defense system which can simultaneously engage up to 16 targets flying from any direction at a range of 15 km at an altitude of up to 12 km, a Rosoboronexport release said.
Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport and the system will be on display at the upcoming Army 2018 event in Moscow starting August 21.
The system is used to provide air defense for army units in all types of combat and on the march, as well as to protect military and other critical facilities from attacks by manned and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Tor-E2 can engage airplanes, helicopters, cruise, anti-radar and other guided missiles. In addition, it effectively destroys the attacking precision guided munitions, such as glide and guided air bombs, as well as UAVs within its engagement envelope.
The system is capable of operating in intense jamming and counter-fire environments, in any weather, day or night. Unlike most of its foreign counterparts, the Tor-E2 combat vehicle is an independent, mobile, all-terrain fighting unit that provides detection and identification of air targets on the march and at the halt, target lock-on and engagement at the halt, from a short stop and on the move.
A high level of automation and unique algorithms of the SAM system minimize crew involvement in the engagement process.
The system far exceeds its rivals in combat survivability: to knock out a Tor battery, you need to destroy all of its combat vehicles. For most of its counterparts, disabling a command post or a battery radar would be sufficient.
In addition, the two Tor-E2 combat vehicles can operate in the “link” mode, which enables them to exchange information about the air situation at different altitude ranges and coordinate joint engagement operations. In this mode, one of the combat vehicles, acting from an ambush, receives information from the other one and does not reveal itself until the launch of the missile.
The possibility of integrating the Tor-E2 SAM system into any existing air defense system available to the customer, including that compatible with NATO standards, considerably expands its export potential. To this end, a command post can be attached to a battery of four Tor-E2 combat vehicles to control and coordinate the Tor combat vehicles and interact with the customer’s air defense control system.
