The delivery of the Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system to Serbia is completed


The supply of Russian anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems “Pantsir-S” in the amount stipulated by the Russian-Serbian contract has been successfully completed. The complexes are designed for close protection of military and civilian objects from air attacks.


This was announced by Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation Dmitry Shugaev in an interview with Interfax.

Serbia acquired six Pantsir-S air defense missile systems. The head of the FSVTS said that the complexes were sent to Serbia in February, and now the Russian side has fully completed the fulfillment of its contractual obligations. He also noted that external forces unsuccessfully tried to disrupt the contract, putting pressure on Belgrade:

The opposition was very strong - everyone twisted their hands to the Serbs, and the Americans, above all.

Earlier, the President of Serbia, Alexander Vucic, expressed his interest in acquiring the S-400 air defense system, but so far decided to refrain from purchasing it due to lack of funds:

I saw it was awesome weapon. But we will not buy it, since we have no money.

He explained that now a significant part of the budget is spent on the construction of modern highways in the country.

    right and the roads are needed and everything else. and the S-400 is really an expensive complex ... the Serbs will not master it, at a price. but maybe the S-300, whatever it is .. type PMU1 for example .. is also a great complex.

      The fact is that this is still a military-political issue, given that the radius of destruction of the air defense systems will cover Croatia, Kosovo (where the NATO base is) and besides, everyone knows the US reaction to S-400 purchases in the world (threats, blackmail), so Serbia decided not to risk once again in their surroundings by NATO countries. You’ll keep going quietly.

      can Serbs adjust on the S-350 barter, we’ll just raise demand for export versions
      and a military base in Serbia for 49 years we will get for rent
      COMPROMISE:
      a radius of 150 km S-350, unlike 400 km S-400, NATO will not be particularly annoying

        Maybe we will first customize the S-350 air defense system? And then they will not help much to the candidate for EU and NATO membership in the person of Serbia, but the S-350 may well fall into the hands of the United States if they press the Serbs as it should. .Serbia is not Turkey. It is not sufficiently independent and self-sufficient in this plan. It is better not to risk the latest S-350s.

          Maxim does not agree with you ... Serbia is quite independent and Turkey did not stand there either. Turkey was not bombed by NATO allies ... but they still have time. I think her time has already come, the Turks have crossed a lot of people. They will be extinguished without regret and pity, and no S-400 will help them. Serbs are our brothers. but you don’t know who the brother is .. request

      If they have not led Serbia for a long time, they indicate the vector of development of Serbia in the EU and NATO. This process has been going on for years since 1999. That's where roads are being built. If what happened in our country in the 90s, we can only imagine what is happening in Serbia, surrounded on all sides. With their pro-Western government.

    The good news. Serbs are our brothers. In 99 they asked for the S-300 .. If they had given it, maybe Montenegro would not have crawled behind Soros’s grandmother. Yeltsin was frightened then, and suddenly World War 3, but we are not ready and sent a reconnaissance vessel to the Adriatic to watch how the Yugov are being felled.

      Only how would they be brought and taken by them, or would the NATO aviation preventively bomb the weapons delivered against them?

    In-in, established roads, wait for the blitzkrieg.

    That the sky of Serbia would always be peaceful! And then if, God forbid, war — and they have the Pantsir-S air defense system in service.

    Serbs, respect. But Vychich is a copy of Yanukovych. Both yours and ours. Unclear, however ...

    Now the Beech M3 started, then the willow, С400 smile and even MI35 With one escadril and that's enough, and in Belgrade 1 company of Russians that they didn’t shoot a nuclear one, and we can play with NATO again. In addition, that would not shoot at the common people, as always did garbage, with impunity, would not be bad Iskanderi M. smile
    When the war begins, then the video clips end with Martian weapons and do NOT DRINK water, then F117 knock down NEVA! Then, during the war, not the actors from Hollywood.
    And here NATO has enough agents for them: you thought how many evil British SAS were buried in 1999. in England ? wink Then 1999 there was a virus in CAC Serbiade !!! laughing laughing laughing

      Maybe Yars and the fire on the capitals and on the enemy’s decision-making headquarters at once?

        laughing Sky Stryker, in my opinion, Yars is used when nothing else to do or for the first sudden blow. They have earned Yars for a long time in their own affairs, but the difference between us and their huge MI LUDI they are rubbish. But the production of tactical nuclear bombs from them and biological weapons deserves PUNISHMENT AND SO THE PRINCE HOLY DOES 964. 3. 07. For whom do they intend to use tactical nuclear bombs ??? They must know if one tactical nuclear is used will destroy everything in place with their nuclear bunkers.
        Knyaz SVYATOSLAV was Sveta Georgy and killed azhdah 11 centuries ago, today it seems that the time has come for the new St. George to kill azhdah?

    It makes no sense to supply air defense of a large radius to Serbia. They will trample, if necessary. Or crush. How convenient. And then the reputation of the air defense system will be tarnished

      1999 they did not have time to crush the army of Serbs, the losses of the Serbian army were below the minimum. ARMISCHE PARTS MOVED CONSTANTLY, their rockets fired into empty territory. And how many know the C400 is moving? wink
