“Our power is now many times greater”: Serbia appreciated the value of the Pantsir-C1 air defense missile system for the country

After receiving the Russian anti-aircraft missile-cannon system "Shell-C1", Serbia became several times stronger. This was stated by the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić.


Serbian leader Alexander Vučić appealed to the citizens of the country. In his speech, he appreciated the importance of the Russian anti-aircraft complex for Serbia, saying that after the delivery of air defense systems, the country became stronger. At the same time, he recalled that with the receipt of Russian weapons the country will be subjected to pressure from Western countries, especially the United States.

Serbia is much stronger. We have equipped our complex "Shell-C1". Now our power is not double, but many times more

- he stressed.

Earlier, the US State Department had already threatened Belgrade with the imposition of sanctions over the purchase of Russian Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems, but Vučić said that Serbia was a free country and it would choose which weapons to buy. At present, Serbia is the only country in the Balkans that is armed with the Russian anti-aircraft systems Pantsir-C1.

The Serbian Ministry of Defense received the first of six purchased by the Shell-S1 air defense missile defense complex on February 22 of this year. The equipment arrived by air at the air base named after Colonel Milenko Pavlovich in Batainitsa near Belgrade.

The agreement on the delivery of the first batch of air defense missile systems was reached during a visit to the Serbian capital by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. According to the Ministry of Defense of Serbia, the Serbian military have been trained and are fully prepared to work with new Russian equipment. The delivery dates for the remaining complexes are not reported, most likely, they will be delivered during this year.

The signing of the agreement between Belgrade and Moscow on the supply of Pantsir-S air defense missile systems became known at the end of October last year, after the second stage of the Slavic Shield air defense exercises in Russia and Serbia was held in Serbia. According to President of the country Alexander Vučić, Serbia purchased the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, and the country's future plans include the purchase of the S-400 Triumph air defense system, which Belgrade will “save up for.”

    Yes, advertising in Syria is not the best, frankly speaking. But it’s even good, the developers will draw the necessary conclusions for themselves. I hope the version of "SM" will be even better.

      Fake videos about the destroyed "Armor" in Syria are just the same good advertising, not just because they began to rivet.

        Fake there is only one. The second is not. You just have to be able to recognize that the system is not perfect. Better let them go there. The developers will draw conclusions and file a new system, for example, "Shell-cm", where in fact almost everything will be updated.

          Which non-fake, which from Libya is the "Shell", or where is the "Roland"? As for the "Shell-SM" absolutely agree, it is quite possible to test on Turkish drones, in conditions of active interference, for which it is intended.

            Why not try Derivation-Air Defense? Works for her - just right. In addition, our Moscow Region is so fond of testing new technology in Syria.

              With the range of "Derivations" I would test it on scouts / gunners drones, and it’s not worth risking against drums. It would be ideal S-350 or Buk-M3, but it is too simple.smile Yes, and Anki, according to rumors, the Turks almost all have landed.

          Ideal systems do not exist. Any air defense system can be suppressed, especially since it is a melee complex; in reality, airplanes will not even enter their coverage area. Given the years of development of the complex, it was probably not even required to combat drones.

      For a country of this size, it is a success. At least one combat unit, at least 100500.

          I do not agree. And one warrior in the field, if he is tailored in Russian. It is quite possible to apply to the Serbs. For example, take the same Milenko Pavlovich. He fought on MiG-29 alone against 16 NATO aircraft.

            No matter how much the goal is to belittle the feat of this particular person and all the other people who died for their country, I would like to remind you that, first of all, the goal in any war is not to die for your country, but to make them die for their adversary. If, against 16 enemy aircraft, he would not leave alone, and another 30 aircraft of his allies, the outcome of the battle would very likely be different ...

              The question here is to go into battle with bare hands or with something that can not so weakly snap back. And most importantly, we don’t know either about the number of armor delivered, nor about whether this is a one-time action or whether it is a contract that is extended over time. These are things that are usually confidential. So, I think in Serbia everything is not as bad as it was before.

            As last time they flattened Serbia for their pleasure, so the next time, if this happens, it will. Unfortunately. The personal heroism of individual fighters against the general background will not give anything. As in life: stupidly, seven of them will be knocked down and kicked with their feet.

    Interestingly, did they buy the shell for money, or did they just give it to them like the MIG-29? Or will they, like other countries, eventually write off the debt for weapons and that's it?

    I want to thank my Serbian friends, neighbors and brothers for congratulating the Bulgarians on our national holiday on March 3rd - two bridges in Belgrade were lit in the colors of the Bulgarian flag.

    Thank you Serbs!

    I agree that the advertisement for the Shell in Syria has been brilliant! .1) The highest rates were demonstrated by repulsing regular, multi-year attacks on Heimim. (2 weeks of attacks have already become daily) 2) A clear contrast is shown under Idlib: when at first the Syrians in the area were completely absent and when the armor was pulled up. Even despite the terrifying training of the Syrians (and the instructors say that they are good guys, but not trainees) immediately began dronopad. And this is taking into account the absence of layered air defense! (I will not discuss the information war against the Shell based on extremely low-quality fakes. I can only say that the next stage of this war will be the massive destruction of the shell models in Turkey by the Turks themselves.)
    But! Alone, armor for Serbia, alas, will not do the weather! If you want to destroy them from exorbitant heights, it will not be difficult.

      What nonsense?) What does it mean from beyond the heights? Well, I wish I understood there, hypersound and all that. Well, or sheer rocket came into it. In fact, the Shell is vulnerable in 2 cases: 1) recharging, 2) there is no shift duty on the monitor. And then, he can automatically keep the watch himself.

    When upgrading and switching from s-300 to s-400 in Russia, I would just give the S-300 to Serbs. It’s just the right distance for them.

            what kind of people are you, google the video yourself, you can clearly see how the drone gets on the shell, the main thing is that our crew should not be there. The shell is not suitable for UAV operations. That's the problem.
