Two batteries of the Polish PSR-A Pilica anti-aircraft missile system entered service with the Polish Armed Forces

Poland continues to rearm its armed forces, purchasing new equipment and weapon, including anti-aircraft systems. Two Pilica air defense batteries entered service with the country's air defense forces. This was announced by the Minister of National Defense of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak.


According to the press service of the Polish military department, both batteries were delivered to units of the 3rd Warsaw Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade. The contract for the production of six batteries of anti-aircraft installations in 2020 was received by the Polish state-owned company PGZ.

The battery of the Pilica short-range air defense system consists of six firing systems, each of which is separately transported or towed by a truck.

The PSR-A Pilica short-range anti-aircraft missile system includes the ZUR-23-2KG Jodek-G anti-aircraft gun, as well as two short-range Grom / Piorun guided missiles. The new version of the Pilica + system is equipped with MBDA CAMM missiles. One battery includes six combined complexes, as well as artillery tractors, a command post, a radar station, 2 transport vehicles and 2 vehicles with ammunition. The main purpose of this air defense system is to cover the batteries of the Patriot system.

ZUR-23-2KG Jodek-G was created on the basis of the Soviet 23-mm ZU-23, the Piorun complex (originally designated as Grom-M) is a further development of the Grom MANPADS, which was originally a licensed copy of the Soviet Igla-1 MANPADS. The declared firing range of the gun is 2 km, MANPADS - 5 km. Each installation can work both autonomously, as it has a computerized fire control system and optoelectronic devices, or be integrated into a layered anti-aircraft defense system, receiving target designation from an automated control system.

    In the photo, is that it? belay
    complex Piorun
    They rolled it right on the wheels into the body of the car, connected it to the radar and voila, we got the PSR-A Pilica short-range anti-aircraft missile system request

      More precisely, they are going to fight with us?

      When there is no Tunguska, there is no shell, although it is still a pitiful sight.

        Russian language is so difficult....
        It's impossible to understand - it just needs to be remembered.

    Anti-aircraft Gun-truk, a collective farm at an industrial level. What kind of LMS do not use - the efficiency is slightly higher than that of a pickup truck with a machine gun. Pickup at least smaller and more maneuverable.

      Oh, don't tell me .... in the same place e +:

        Their target designation is usually external from AWACS or radars operating in the short-term switching mode. And everything else is a gun truck.

          Again, this ubiquitous AWACS and radar are short-lived. Do not tell me how they probably transmit the information starlink. Guessed.
          Oh school, school, school. why are you so useless.

        Above are two more MANPADS pipes. We also have such developments. For example Sanum. 50 installations have been ordered for the National Guard. The order was completed last year.
        Attempts to modernize the Shilka, the radar and all the equipment are transferred to a new element base + 4 Igla MANPADS pipes are attached to the tower.

          There is no radar on Sanum, but there is an optical-electronic system. Just ZPU in the back of a pickup truck, and booked from the riflemen. And it seems that it went beyond a few samples.
          SANUM - Ultra-Mobile Artillery Multi-Purpose Installation Modernized.
          In the case of UAVs like Geranium, it will probably be more effective than radar, infrared seeker

    The main purpose of this air defense system is to cover the batteries of the Patriot system.
    - what can I say? In my opinion, a shitty cover, more like an imitation

    Hmmm ... And the other day they said that all our weapons are Soviet and outdated. Even visually compare this cart with a shell and everything becomes clear. Perhaps she can work on drones. For the same KA-52, it will be ineffective. Well, the number of two units is also impressive))).
    And hundreds of Abrams tanks spoke, dozens of Patriots ... There is a lot of empty sound in the words and actions of Europeans. They live in their surrealism. A few years ago I argued why the USSR stuck so many tanks, howitzers and so on. Now I caught up, in my country they were going to really fight, and not put on performances ...

    I'm not an expert, of course. But in the photo, the air defense system is very similar to a shaitan arba somewhere in Libya, Sudan.

    The engineers call it: "Blind from g..on and sticks"! Nevertheless, the UAV will work, if you're lucky, then the CD will bring down, although the probability is low. A typical weapon of "last hope", the last frontier of air defense.

      Against aircraft, helicopters will also go. ZUShka will start threshing 100 shots from two barrels (two boxes of 50 each) with tracers - it won’t hit, so it will be hard for the psyche of the flyers (failure to complete the task). If the control center is sensible .... And even worse against the infantry. At one time he commanded both ZUshki and arrows (air defense of the Airborne Forces), so I can imagine. Good old, it's good too))

    Briefly on the topic:
    The Poles are upgrading 15 installations already in service and taking another 15 new ones.
    Pilica is an option for protecting stationary objects (air bases / important objects). With a good sight and a "far hand" in the form of MANPADS. Operates as a battery (6 guns, radar, command post and convoy).
    In the "Pilica+" version, they will be combined with KAMM (no one will tie KAMM to Pilica). And they will add a mode of operation without human intervention (?) Plus projectiles with a programmable detonation. And add something anti-drone.

    Bongo, it seems, had an article about Polish air defense in the military, so everything is there.

    In Poland, rearmament is also underway in the air defense (programs "Vistula" - "Narev" - "something else"). Long range - Patriot, medium - KAMM, and Pilica works with KAMM (23 mm plus MANPADS) and there seems to be another project in caliber 35 mm AHEAD.

    Pilica+


    KAMM in Polish



    In general, everything is a little different from what is written in the article.

    IMHO: As an option, "make ZU 23-2 in caliber 23 mm for air defense at maximum speed" is not bad. The Poles also have a good similar version of Shilka.
    But 35 mm, the same version of the Cheetah with AHEAD and Stingers that "didn't go because of the money" (or 30 mm Bushmaster2) is simply stupidly better in range.

      The very case when a comment is more informative and objective than an article.
      And to all lovers to compare this system with a "cart". How are our t-62s?
