Short-range anti-aircraft missile systems "Tor-M2" will cover the Far East

Anti-aircraft missile systems "Tor-M2" will cover the Far East. The Ministry of Defense has decided to arm the air defense units of the Eastern Military District with the Tor-M2 air defense system. "News" with reference to the military department.


The Ministry of Defense made a decision to arm the air defense units of the Eastern District with Tor-M2 short-range anti-aircraft systems. The complexes will be included in the united air defense system of the Far East together with the S-400, S-300V4, Pantsir-S air defense missile systems.

The strengthening of the eastern frontiers can be considered a reaction to the growing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region. In any case, this is a timely and important step, especially relevant against the background of statements about the possible deployment of American missiles in Japan.

- quotes the publication of the words of military expert Vasily Kashin.

It is noted that the Tor-M2 air defense missile system received modernized communications and the possibility of broadband connection to higher command posts. Thanks to this, the complex is able to "see" the target using third-party means before entering the zone of operation of the radar of the air defense system itself.

The Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile system is an all-weather close-combat system. It is capable of covering strategic objects from cruise missiles, multiple launch rocket systems, as well as loitering ammunition and drones. This is a deeply modernized complex of the Tor family, which differs from previous models by the use of the new 9M338K missile. In addition, the ammunition load on the combat vehicle has been increased from 8 to 16 missiles. It is possible to work in a fully automatic mode.

As a result of the use of the complex in Syria for the Tor-M2, a small-sized inexpensive rocket is being developed that allows them to shoot down drones without spending conventional ammunition on them.

    Really there were no Thors in the Far East Military District?
    For me personally, this is a surprise!
    Three hundred houses have been exhibited there since the 90th.
    I have been to the positions of S-125, S-75 and S-200 several times.
    Wasp, Strela-10 were available.

      Apparently it wasn't. China was not considered an enemy. laughing on Sakhalin, probably, like the S-400.
      Multilevel air defense is the basis of impenetrability. The Japanese are already very excited ...

        And what planes did Thor shoot down besides the Ukrainian Boeing over Iran?

      "Torah" seems to have been in the Kuril Islands for a long time.

      Yes, maybe there were. Only in the article we are not talking about "Tor" and "Tor M1", but about the newest "Tor M2"!

      I agree. Conventional replenishment in order to increase the effectiveness of the layered air defense system. They are doing it right. A bunch of "Pantsir-S" and "Tor-M2" will complement each other.

        If there are no "loud - hot" events, this is even good ... in the military sphere, at least.

      Torah is a military air defense task. The tasks are somewhat different. To create air defense focus zones.

        Mobile air defense systems short-range ... if necessary, you can use in different ways.

        here is the Tor-M2 and will cover the S-300V4, this is also military air defense - on the Kuril Islands

      An illiterate title and the very message of the article. And what does the air defense system of the military air defense (only of the divisional level) and the "cover of the Far East" have to do with it?

        So it is not uncommon that the most "bright, attractive" in the article is the headline.
        As a matter of fact, written .... not the anti-aircraft gunner wrote, obviously.

    The headline is too loud, almost farting. The complexes of the self-defense zone cannot cover the Far East, they cover only the "older brothers" - the air defense complexes of the far zone. Their appearance in the Far East is in itself a blessing, but why so loudly and with fanfare?

      The shell will most likely cover the "older brothers", and Thor can cover the troops on the march and there is an opportunity to shoot on the move.

    And what, before that, it was assumed that the BM would stand on a slope and constantly twirl its Sotskaya?
    Maybe the Armenians did so (with the expected result), but the tactics of the Soviet / Russian air defense of the ground forces were always different - the central command from the superior commander and additional reconnaissance

    Apparently it wasn't. China was not considered an enemy.

    Consider it, do not count it, but they could not fully resist China without nuclear weapons. Yes, and nuclear weapons had their own problems.
