TPU 51P6A SAM S-400 with simultaneous placement of 48N6 SAM and 9M96 SAM. Ashuluk, 2019
A video of the launch of a 9M96 anti-aircraft guided missile (SAM) with the MZKT-7930 chassis of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system appeared on the Web. The video appeared on social networks and on YouTube. When the video was filmed and where, at the moment there is no information.
Note that this combined installation of 48N6 and 9M96 missiles was originally provided by the designers of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system and was repeatedly demonstrated during various exhibitions. In 2019, during the Slavic Shield-2019 exercise at the Ashuluk training ground, the Serbian servicemen demonstrated the 51P6A transport and launcher (TPU) of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, simultaneously placing on it a transport and launch container of a 48N6 anti-aircraft guided missile and a package of four transport and launch containers of 9M96 series anti-aircraft missiles.
In contrast to the photographs, the launch of the 9M96 S-400 air defense missile system was recorded in the video for the first time. The video shows the "cold" start of the rocket, when it is thrown out of a vertically located transport and launch container by a charge of compressed air to a height of 30 meters, deployed using the gas-dynamic system towards the target, after which the rocket engines are turned on.
Incidentally, Turkey became the first foreign recipient of the 9M96 series anti-aircraft missiles. The photo of the Turkish military against the background of the S-400 shows a 51P6A self-propelled launcher on the MZKT-7930 chassis with two transport and launch containers of 48N6E2 anti-aircraft guided missiles and a package of four transport and launch containers of 9M96E2 anti-aircraft guided missiles.
