Tor-M2 high-precision air defense system was created in Russia



The Russian concern Almaz-Antey has created the newest Tor-M2 short-range air defense complex of the ground forces with improved characteristics in terms of target destruction and twice increased ammunition, said Sergei Druzin, deputy head of scientific and technical development.

“Now we can confidently say that a unique in its class air defense system has been created for the Russian army with a tremendous accuracy of hitting targets at a distance exceeding the specified characteristics,” said Druzin.

In addition, according to Druzin, according to the results of tests, it is advisable to consider the possibility of using the complex in motion without stopping, reports RIA "News».

“We have a reason for further work - today, the launch of the rocket takes place with a short stop for 2 – 3 seconds, and can be done completely in motion, without stopping,” said the deputy general director of the Almaz-Antey air defense concern.

As Drusin stated, “Tor-M2” is capable of striking all types of high-precision weaponsthat exist today, including cruise missiles. “But the main thing is that he is able to hit heavily maneuvering targets. Such evasion maneuvers are performed by both cruise missiles and manned aviation", - said the interlocutor of the agency.

He noted that these complexes are in the state armaments program until 2020 of the year. “We are preparing their mass production. We are already making combat vehicles for the complex. This part of us has been worked out, ”Drusin emphasized.

# {weapon} He thanked the chief designer of the complex, Joseph Drize, for the excellent work done on the creation of the newest Russian air defense system.

Until now, the Tor-M1 and Tor-M2U complexes were in service with the Russian army (the export version is Tor-M2E). At the end of October of this year, shooting outside the state tests was carried out to confirm the characteristics of the new complex.

According to Druzin, the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern and the Tactical Missile Armament state corporation created the newest ground-to-air missile 9М338 with enhanced characteristics for Tor-2М.

The X-NUMX-1 missile was in service with the Tor-M2 and Tor-M9 complexes. At the end of October of this year, shooting outside the framework of state tests was carried out to confirm the characteristics of the new complex and the rocket.

“We shot five missiles at very difficult targets (the Osa-Saman rocket), three of which were shot down by direct missile hits, that is, head-on. This is a great result, amazing accuracy. This is unique. The remaining targets were also hit by the fragmentation flow of missile warheads, ”said Drusin.

He stressed that a special commission on the results of the shooting came to the conclusion that it was possible to assign serial production letters to the rocket.
"This is the final part, this is the result of a very large work," said the deputy general director of the Almaz-Antey air defense concern.

He also said that the creation of a new missile, which is smaller in size than its predecessors, made it possible to double the Tor-M2 ammunition load from 8 to 16 units.

At VIP AVITEK (Kirov), which is part of the concern, the first batch of these missiles from 40 units has already been manufactured.

“This fact confirms that our plant is able to master these technologies. We can start making missiles in the volumes that will be needed by the Russian army, ”stressed Drusin.

He said that the 9М338 rocket was developed by the Vimpel machine-building design bureau, part of the Tactical Missile Armament corporation, with the financial participation of the Almaz-Antey air defense concern.

“I want to thank the rocket’s chief designer Vladimir Yeletsky for the tremendous and successful work on creating new weapons for Russian air defense,” said Druzin.

        There, at least, the 300th is needed. They do not fly into the "Torah" range.

        The ammunition is impressive and inspiring.
        It is interesting to know the full-time placement of installations in the new appearance of the ground forces.

      S-300 is already cooler than Ajis. To be equal to the 314ndos air defense is not to respect yourself ...

    Then Thor will be able to accompany the columns ???
    I sincerely wish you GOOD LUCK !!!

    ps To Thor and Tunguska there has always been respect and trust among the land explorers.

      ps u and Tunguske always had respect and trust among the land explorers.

      And what kind of respect there was for "Shilka" in Afghanistan, and how dushmans respected this "Shaitan-arba", this is generally a song. good

        Yes, the materiel of these complexes "Shilka" in Afghanistan gave the spirits heat. As my friend, who served on it, said, one volley was enough for the spirits to scatter - a sea of ​​fire.
        But the most remarkable thing about Tor-M2 is that it will be possible to work on the move, as part of a convoy of equipment on the march. How many photo and video materials from Iraq (yes, at least the times of the Second World War) with damaged and burnt equipment on the march, right on the highway. Unfortunately, except for "Tunguska", "no one" could do this. The carapace cannot do this, at least I have such infa. Yes, and cannot work on a highly maneuverable target. These two shortcomings became the reason for the delay in their adoption in service.
        I wonder what kind of rocket this new 9M338 is? 9K332 reached up to 12 km and 1,7 km along the WTO (in my opinion). And the new one means more than 12 km and, most importantly, two times less (16 missiles - like at least 8 targets with 100% probability, or even more - a squadron of "Warthogs" A-10. In short, it can decide the outcome of the battle on the field, covering the "air" ). NATO's turntables have an air-to-ground missile range of 8-10 km. This means that Thor has an advantage over them, and most importantly, on the move (they would only finish it) - a strong trump card. I am confident in the huge success of this machine. Everyone needs this. good hi

        Until the shell is replaced with a rocket, it will be inferior in effectiveness to the TOP. Especially now, with the possibility of TOR-M2 simultaneous shelling of 4 targets with one machine, and a high probability of hitting targets, the Carapace remains far behind, even with cannon weapons that cannot be used even from a short stop, because of the need to lift it onto jacks .

    Healthy competition is needed. Competing with each other, designers do not stand still, although Shell and Thor are some of the best air defense systems in the world.

    "Tor-M2" instead of armor. There is no money for both. And rightly so, to give Syria 20 pieces, it still works in the machine, the best thing for the Arabs.

    Air defense is serious.
    Eliminate the threat from the air, and everything else is no longer scary. Our sworn friends understand that without air gain we cannot be taken.
    Good news. Let Westerners scratch their turnips.

    S300 / 400 distant arm, medium shell, small torus, + MANPADS on the main directions + good radar and electronic warfare. here is the ideal system for covering zones. (and competent operators naturally). And do not blame the Torah in Syria and say that they even missed there. this is a complex that cleans up after 2 previous ones, and a Jew is bombed from max distance, of course). And only in the full set will everything work with a bang good

    We urgently need to put a couple of complexes near Damascus to roll to the full in combat conditions. Here, based on the results of such tests, we can draw serious conclusions.
