Following the decision to supply Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems to the Far East, the Ministry of Defense began rearmament of units and formations of the Western Military District with a new anti-aircraft system.


The rearmament of the ZVO anti-aircraft gunners has already begun, according to "Izvestia", which refer to the Ministry of Defense, the Tor-M2 air defense system was transferred to the 6th separate tank brigade in Mulino near Nizhny Novgorod. Also, a batch of these air defense systems entered service with the 1st Guards Tank Army.

The rearmament to a new anti-aircraft complex will take place as part of the fulfillment of the state defense order by the Izhevsk electromechanical plant "Kupol". According to the previous state contract, since 2017, the ground forces have already received six Tor-M2 divisions, they were distributed among the units of the Western and Southern military districts.

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.

In 2019, the Ministry of Defense signed a long-term contract with the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol for the supply of Tor-M2 and Tor-M2DT anti-aircraft missile systems to the troops. The agreement, worth almost 100 billion rubles, is designed for the supply of equipment until 2027.

    And in another way ... there are not white, fluffy birds around, gathered ... predatory birds. We must have control over them, if that!

        It's a little expensive for small drones. only as a last resort.
        There is a boom in waiting for new, more practical, anti-drone systems.
        They are being developed and we will see them soon. The process has already been launched, both from the side of the means of attack and protection from them.

          yes, it was not a bad thing about MANPADS with an unchanged weight of 18 kg, set the heat to a range of 10 km ... this was a tin

            MANPADS is either the last frontier or unexpectedly, from where they are not expected!
            Air defense will be networked, with highly ramified systems of reconnaissance, control, and destruction.

              Air defense will be done network, with
              .... wherever there is a Verba MANPADS in the kit ... that is, the shooter enters the position in advance and does not stick out on it ... here Verba and nat 10 km ... just right

                So the increase in range is solid chemistry ... i.e. new fuel mixtures. This is if you try to fit into the previous dimensions.
                I’m not a chemist, I don’t even presume to guess.

                  those. new fuel mixtures.
                  ... well, why exactly TTRD, ... in 80 for rocket artillery there was experience in ramjet, another thing that was considered redundant, but for MANPADS it was

    Yes, not even 30 years have passed. In the zrp in which he served. They were waiting for rearmament .. from wasps to tori. Today the regiment is gone.

      It is exactly at 6 rounds from the "Os" to the Torah that the anti-aircraft gunners are transplanted. Only these are already different Torahs, not the ones that were 30 years ago. 16 missiles, not 8 and as many as 4 target channels.

    And this is good. Timely, the main thing is not to slow down the pace of rearmament.

    That's right, the main warfare of the 21st century takes place in the sky. And all sorts of armats will wait, it is better to first release the SU-57 faster and release more.
