Test firing of the Pantsir-SA air defense missile system of the Northern Fleet took place in the Arctic

On the island of Alexandra Land of the Franz Josef Land archipelago in the Arctic, test missile firing of the Arctic version of the Pantsir-SA air defense missile system took place. The press service of the Northern fleet.


The military reportedly fired anti-aircraft missiles without a warhead. The main task of the launches is to check the operation of the anti-aircraft complex in arctic conditions. The firing support was carried out by the tactical group of the Northern Fleet, stationed at the Arctic Trefoil base.

Test firing was carried out by anti-aircraft missiles without a warhead in order to test the functionality of the complex in high latitudes

- Reported in the press service of the fleet.

The military noted that the Pantsir-SA anti-aircraft complex was created specifically for operations in Arctic conditions on the basis of the Vityaz two-link tracked snow and swamp-going vehicle and is capable of operating in a wide range of ambient temperatures on Arctic off-road. Earlier it was reported that the Arctic version of the complex does not have cannon armament due to the threat of freezing lubricant. The Pantsir-SA is armed with anti-aircraft missiles.

According to the Northern Fleet, in addition to the Pantsir-SA air defense missile system, Bastion coastal missile systems equipped with the Onyx anti-ship missile system are in service with the tactical group deployed on the Alexandra Land Island.

    We are getting used to the Arctic more and more, that's right. Clashes and the struggle for it are still ahead.

      The right "business"!

      But this is not necessary .... any "collision" can lead to irreversible consequences, so "these inclinations" must be suppressed in the very .. "embryo", and not in .. "silent" play " soldier

          Do you remember what Vasily Ivanovich Petka answered? wink but instead of languages ​​.. it is necessary to replace it with .. no authority.
          And for God's sake ... everyone would stand at attention, well, in extreme cases, they would constantly jump up and salute ... wassat (well, God did not give the cow "buttery horns") .. but for the power it is insulting ...

          How many TOTAL were reduced and destroyed .. "current"? How many BAZs and Centers ... have they been "reduced"? (I am not talking about the naval base at all)
          You must be aware of this for certain (airbases in Cuba, Angola, Guinea, Somalia,
          in Vietnam), etc.?
          And you .. "try" ... there are authorized persons and representatives who can only express "concerns" ... wassat

      The Arctic is the future of Russia! It's not for nothing that such a collision is going on .. I hope we won't hand it over hi
      Ancestors left us a huge country that we asked ... and, and we should leave the Arctic with its huge resources to the future generation, at least something .. The country was destroyed by my generation .. It is shameful and offensive men, maybe the Arctic will atone for our guilt?
      Here is a song that touches the strings of the soul.

      On geographical maps of the times of the USSR, the state border began from the North Pole. And when the "fight for the Arctic" began, I forgot something.

    Test firing of the Pantsir-SA air defense missile system of the Northern Fleet took place in the Arctic

    What nafig ZRPK ??? When it is a clean air defense system ... The author read the performance characteristics of this modification.
    Unlike the classic Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile-gun system (ZRPK), the arctic Pantsir-SA does not include the 30-mm 2A38M cannon assault rifles. Instead, the number of anti-aircraft missile launchers has been increased, now amounting to 18 instead of 12. The assumptions of some "experts" that the decision to remove artillery barrels from the Arctic complex is due to the fact that they will not work at very low temperatures is clearly not true ... Automatic cannons, developed in the same Tula KBP as the 2A38M submachine guns and installed on fighters that climb to heights where temperatures are much lower than minus 60 ° C, work properly.

      You are absolutely right! The author decided to "show off" erudition, but like most scribblers, he didn't get into the topic at all.

        Well, well ... it's an everyday matter! Which has long been described by such expressions as: "Without looking at the calendar, he thumped on the bells" ... "I heard the ringing, but I did not understand where he was" ...!

      It is not entirely clear what is so clinging to the guns in "Shell"! In the end, they will take it and refuse it, "someday", in general! Indeed, the Pantsir-SM also has a cannon-free version (24zur)! On a kraynyak, maybe it is better to put "artillery" on the basis of LPO-57? It is still easier to make a fragmentation-beam (shrapnel) projectile with a remotely programmable fuse ... By the way, here, it is quite convenient to use the concept of "master-slave" in projectiles ... thereby "get" corrected ammunition ...

        Rather, it is a loader with a limited firing capability. And at the expense of the guns, I agree, for the shell they are an extra load and it is better to replace them with a package of missiles.

    You need to be prepared for such a situation.
    Until recently, in Russian models of technology, the comfort of a person driving a machine was traditionally provided on a residual basis. The research of scientists, including the military, devoted to this issue is widely known. For example: an increase in the reaction time of a tired person by 0,1 seconds leads to an increase in the probability of an accident among drivers by 10%. With a daily march with closed hatches, the possibility of detecting targets for weapons or a dangerous road situation is reduced by 40% - 60%. Man is the integrator and regulator of the tactical and technical characteristics of the machine. The human link remains the weakest component of the "man-machine" system. The air temperature inside a car that is not thermostatted with a heater becomes painful for the crew even when the outside air temperature is below -20C. Moreover, the humidity in the car can reach 75% - 95%. These conditions lead to an increase in the level of colds, diseases of the skin and eyes, and frostbite of the hands and feet, which affects the combat effectiveness of weapons. In particular, the potential of artillery guns is underutilized by 40%, air defense systems (anti-aircraft missile systems) in combat conditions - by 20%, tanks - by 50%. At low temperatures, the temperature control of the living space of the conveyor body is of great importance. Prolonged stay of people in a sitting immobilized position with a sharp layer-by-layer temperature drop in the habitable compartment leads to a loss of combat effectiveness. In existing samples of Russian armored vehicles, at outdoor temperatures below -20C, snow does not melt on the floor of the car, and at the level of the head of a seated person, the air temperature reaches + 20C. In such conditions, long-term performance of the crew is out of the question. During a long march or halt, personnel should be able to remove warm clothing and shoes to dry them from sweat and snow. The air atmosphere of the habitable compartment must be dry and warm from floor to ceiling. Along with special units for filtration, heating and air drying, the thermal insulation of the housing is of great importance. If it is incorrectly calculated, any drainage systems will not cope with their task. The dew point of the heat-insulating material on the body at a temperature difference from -60C to + 20C should not be inside the habitable space of the conveyor. The thickness of the insulation should not significantly affect the usable internal volume of the conveyor. The insulation must not emit toxic gases and support combustion. The service life of thermal insulation should not be less than 10 years. The weight of the insulation should be kept to a minimum. The requirements for comfort are high, but achievable for designers. There will be a customer's demand, and there will be comfortable conditions.

      Firstly, what relation does the photo have to military equipment? There, since the end of the 70s, it is standard ... several EFU systems, a network heater or an autonomous heater have been mounted to start the engine in cold weather ..
      Secondly .. I’m just from a trip .. honestly .. to comment in detail on the sheet of delirium .. no strength, no desire .. Just accept .. everything that you have written .. pure delirium ...

        Colleague, you are too categorical. Read my article "The Arctic dictates, armor and composites in the technique of the Ground Forces" Army Collection "May 2019, page 89. I recommend resting more, nerves, however.

    These missiles will be especially useful (on icebreakers) during the new Ice Age 2100. Then there will be many wars over population, territory and resources.

    Its offensive has been proven by the team of the research firm "Mathship Technologies"
    See article http://mathship.com/030publishedarticles/IceAge2100rus.pdf.

    Pay special attention to the Glacial Map of Europe at the end of the article.
    Funny that
    -North and Middle England
    -Norway, Sweden and Finland
    -Baltic
    -Switzerland
    -North third of Poland
    disappear under the ice
    Crimea will become an island.
    Turkey will have a land border with Greece and Bulgarian brothers

    Russia, as always, will have a lot of tasty things (territories and resources). Here she will need a weapon to protect herself from those who want her to "eat a little". And old but great weapons (for example, PPSh and AK-47)
    can be sold dearly for resources and immigrant workers for their resettlement in Siberia and the Far East

    If you really believe such "scientists", then you must begin to believe the stories about the "black hand" or the "blue beard". Are there still those who believe in any predictions in principle ??? I just feel sorry for them. Is it really impossible to find something to do according to your Soul, and not to engage in independent falling into insanity ???
