The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2018 plans to strengthen the air defense of the Arctic group with new short-range anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM), reports Interfax-AVN a message from Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov, commander of the Russian Armed Forces air defense.




In 2018, it was planned to equip two air defense military units with modern armament and equipment with a short-range anti-aircraft missile system Tor-М2; air defense units operating in the Arctic and the Far North - the short-range anti-aircraft missile system Tor-M2DT; air defense units of combined-arms formations - “Verba” MANPADS,
Leonov said in an interview with the newspaper "Red Star".

In July, the general director of Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol JSC (part of Almaz-Antey), Fanil Ziyatdinov, said that “in 2018, serial supplies will begin for the short-range autonomous anti-aircraft missile complex Tor-M2DT developed specifically for the Arctic ".

According to Ziyatdinov, the “Tor” air defense missile system on the base hull chassis operates at temperatures of plus or minus 50 degrees. ” A "Thor", developed for the Arctic is able to work in even more difficult conditions.

We adapt the work of our complex to the working conditions in the Arctic, the Far East, Siberia, with no roads at all,
he said.

The general director also said that in the Arctic "Torah" created "comfortable conditions for combat crews."

We place it on a two-link tracked tractor. The first link is equipped with a life module. (...) There is a mini-kitchen, there is an opportunity to rest,
he explained.

“Tor-М2” air defense missile system is designed for air defense and missile defense at a distance of up to 15 km and at an altitude of up to 10 km. It is in service with military air defense (Ground Forces) since 2015.

    Let’s see if the troops will receive the promised equipment next year, because the defense order failures became more frequent, and the reason for this was not Senka’s cap - the inability of some firms to fulfill contracts primarily because of the shortage of certain specialists!

      not quite so .... many people go to great lengths to win the tender - and this is task number! ... that's how it breaks down at the level of subcontracts and contracts

      And there are not enough specialists. But in my opinion, the matter is different, they take upon themselves obligations that are not fulfilled in the given time period in order to win the tender. Some pose not real tasks, others commit themselves to fulfill them, etc. , and when you consider that no one is punished, so why be surprised.

        So remember the Beria sharashka.
        And it is necessary to punish for non-fulfillment of the taken obligations.
        And also, to transfer all this garbage, with tenders and funding for the Old Slavonic New Year, to September XNUMX, and leave the accounting reports for development, you look, by May all the garbage will be determined and we'll see who is on summer vacation wassat
        In general, the doors should open inward, of the North, here even without options, the usual snowstorm and the whole crew are locked what
        May thaw by summer, and that’s not a fact belay

    The first link is equipped with a life module. (...) There is a kitchenette, there is the opportunity to relax,
    It is good that they began to take care of the comfort of calculation. Although without this in the conditions of the Arctic it is difficult to imagine normal combat work.
