The Pantsir-S1 complex (sample of 1995) is equipped with 12 9М335 missiles, externally and in layout similar to 9М311 ZRPK Tungusk missiles (the launch range increased for new missiles increased to 12 km, the height of the targets hit - up to X ZNXX, the launching range increased from new missiles to 8 km, the height of the targeted targets was up to X ZNXX, the launching range increased for new missiles to 90 km, the height of the targets hit - up to X ZNXX, the launching range increased from new missiles to 12 km, the height of the targeted targets was up to X ZNXX, , the new rocket used a more powerful engine, increased the mass of the warhead, while its caliber “grew” to 8 mm). The rocket has a short flight time at the launch site and high speed. The range of damage in range is 20 km, in height - 3 km. The mass of the warhead consisting of core attack elements is XNUMX kg. The rocket uses an air-dynamic steering gear that maneuvers the rocket during flight. The complex can direct simultaneously to XNUMX missiles on the radio command guidance system. In such systems, the rocket is controlled by radio commands transmitted from the carrier.
The artillery “stuffing” of the “Shell” consists of two 30-mm single-barrel automatic guns 2А72, which are powered by two cartridge belts with high-explosive fragmentation and armor-piercing projectiles. The combat module mounted on the roof of the body of the combat vehicle includes an 2 6 anti-aircraft missile unit, two cannons placed on the inside of the missile launch cannons, a radar target detection station, and a target tracking station and missiles. There is also an optical channel fire control system.
ZRPK “Carapace” was just (and so far, apparently) designed mainly to combat flying Tomogawk type cruise missiles and low-flying (maneuvering) enemy targets, which for some reason broke through the air defense barrier. Tests of the “Carapace” showed that the complex is capable of shooting down low-flying missiles, including at a record low altitude of 15 meters.
It should be noted that the armament of the American squadron of ships, which moved to the shores of Syria, includes the Tomoghawk cruise missiles. And it was a two-day bombardment of “Tomogawks” that Barack Obama threatened Syria.
Was delivered from Russia to Syria 36 96K6 complexes between 2008 2011 for years. Supply made within 2006 contract, which provides for the supply to 50 96K6 complexes and to 700 missiles for them.
