“Who did they bring down?”: On the Web are puzzled by the Tor air defense system with many stars

37

In the Internet space appears a photograph posted on one of the Chinese resources. It depicts an anti-aircraft missile system, which, judging by the "iconostasis of the orders", has impressive combat experience.


The Serbian online publication Marsonline drew attention to a photograph of the official Chinese resource www.81.cn, dedicated to military topics. It depicts a column of air defense systems on the march of three vehicles. These products belong to type 9A331 "Tor-M1". In China, they ended up thanks to Russian exports. In total, according to the international analytical organization IISS, in the People's Liberation Army of China there are 24 units of equipment of this model.

The near car featured in the photograph is adorned with eighteen gold stars. According to the tradition accepted in the armies of the world, the placement of such “awards” on board the equipment indicates the number of targets struck by the crew with it.

It could be assumed that the Chinese military put on the “track record” the goals that were destroyed during the exercises. However, in this case, the question arises, why the same type of technology following the "order-bearing" machine does not have similar awards?

Whom did they bring down?

- one of the Serbian users is puzzled.

      If we recall the test bench SU-57, on which the pilots also underwent training, there is also a decent "iconostasis" on that model of the aircraft laughing
      In peacetime, these "iconostases" usually do not indicate destroyed enemies, but something else. Each army has its own. The number of successful exercises, victories in training fights, etc.

      And North Korean generals are generally the most seasoned in this regard.

      The irony is that the sticker “Downed Grandma” was born many years ago as an innocent April Fool’s joke in the St. Petersburg MINI car club. But the idea so pleased the "clear boys" of all Russia that now it is an almost 100 percent guarantee - “inadequate” sits behind the wheel of a car with such an identification mark.

      Perhaps here are the next Chinese show-offs: see what “cool anti-aircraft gunners” we are ...

    Well, for the sake of justice, in our SU in Syria, too, out of nowhere rows of stars appeared. Tolley is the number of pickups with Barmaleevsky machine guns gouged, or Barmaleevsky sheds go for the star ....

          There are modifications, but there are export weapons, well, it’s straightforward that you cannot modify combat arms to the level of an export one, well, if you understand at least a little in technology and electronics, although I doubt it

      Now it’s clear where so many medals came from the undeserving Shoigu, as if Berlin had taken two times - they are clearly rewarding for coming to work in the morning laughing

        All you need to prick our brother's jacket. In the service, equated to the military, a person has been composed since the beginning of the 90s.

          If victory stars are already drawn on the “apprentice equated to military operations” (for victory over targets at the training ground), then, of course, it’s not a bad thing to give medals for “service equated to military”. Although if it were my will, I would forbid the public wearing of any awards other than personal military ones, and whoever likes to shake jubilee tsatsks, let him go to the Cossacks. When the Minister of Defense attends the parade the medals issued for the 850th anniversary of Moscow, the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg, the 1000th anniversary of Kazan and the 200th anniversary of the Russian Ministry of Defense, "For Merits in the Census", then the real warriors who threw banners to the Mausoleum in the 45th, for a pair of modest (but military) medals on the chest, it somehow seems not quite right.
