The newest Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems will be shown for the first time on May 9 2014 at the Victory Parade in Moscow.
This was reported to journalists by the head of the air defense forces of the Land Forces of the Russian Federation, Alexander Leonov, in connection with the 98 anniversary of the air defense.
“For the first time, the general public will see these fighting vehicles in the coming 9 year of May during the Victory Parade on Red Square,” he said. - To date, already in three military districts there are units that have been equipped with Tor-M2U systems.
According to Leonov, Tor-M2U provides an all-view defeat of air targets due to the presence of a circular reconnaissance station, a guidance station and an anti-aircraft guided missile of a vertical launch. ”
“This arrangement of the combat vehicle allows reconnaissance in motion across any terrain and shelling air targets from an unprepared position after a short, 3-5 second stop,” he said. “In addition, a powerful on-board computing complex provides full automation of the processes of combat work and simultaneous firing at one vehicle of four targets in a given sector.”
