Modular air defense system "Tor-М2КМ" for air defense of large megapolists and industrial centers


The Tor-M2KM anti-aircraft missile system (ZRK) became the main Russian exhibit at the DEFEXPO INDIA 2014 international exhibition of weapons that opened today in New Delhi. It should be noted that this air defense system with combat and technical equipment in modular design for the first time is able to completely solve the task of air defense of large megapolists and industrial centers while inside their borders.

This newest development of the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern and the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol, which is part of it, has all the advantages of the Tor-M2E air defense system, specially designed to combat the most common air attack systems, such as actively maneuvering air targets, managed and planned aviation bombs, anti-radar and cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, airplanes and helicopters.

Top-M2KM is equipped with modern computing facilities and modern radars, which allow detecting and processing up to 48 targets, displaying information on the 10 of the most dangerous of them and ensuring the simultaneous destruction of four air targets. The area of ​​the protected object by one autonomous combat module of the Tor-M2KM air defense missile system is more than 200 square kilometers.

At the same time, the design of the new complex provides for the possibility of placing it at the request of the customer on any automobile chassis, semi-trailer, trailer, railway platforms of appropriate capacity, as well as light-tonnage vessels or use in a stationary version on the roofs of buildings and structures. This allows you to significantly expand the range of application of the Tor-M2KM air defense system up to the protection of stadiums from air terrorists during major international sporting events and significantly reduce the cost of its operation.

In April-June, 2014, it is planned to conduct tests of the Tor-M2KM air defense system on an Indian-made TATA automobile chassis as part of a tender announced by the Indian Defense Ministry for the purchase of two short-range anti-aircraft missile regiments.

At present, IEMZ Kupol OJSC is actively working to further improve the air defense system and enhance its combat performance. In particular, the leading Torr-MXNHMKM naval air defense system is being modernized together with leading developers and manufacturers of combat ships for the Russian Navy. “-“ M-Tor ”. A version of the Tor-M2KM air defense missile system for the Arctic units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is also being worked out.

    Having bought Thor from Russia, Greece stopped the provocative flights of Turkish aviation. Terrible weapon.

      The technique is good, but the chassis is embarrassing. Does anyone know how to lead the Indian miracle along the roads of Russia?

    In the photo in the container is presented SAM 9M331, This is no longer the most extreme modification of missiles for the "Tor" air defense missile system. SAM 9M338 with enhanced features.

    the ammunition on the 9M338 missile combat vehicle will be 16 pieces against 8 9M331 missiles, the zone of destruction of manned targets - up to 16 km, in height - up to 10 km. The maximum flight speed of the rocket is 1000 m / s. Guidance system - command telecontrol. The warhead is a high-explosive fragmentation. The mass of the rocket with TPK is 163 +/- 2 kg, the length of the TPK is 2,94 m, the diameter of the TPK is 0,24 m. The aerodynamic structure of the rocket is wingless. Control system with fixed wings (pre-steering stabilizers) and flat aerodynamic rudders. The planes of the wings and rudders coincide. A controlled flight is carried out using aerodynamic rudders (in the rear there are holes that are not rocket engine systems, but are rocket deflection engines after launch). and transonic speeds

    They started up after the promotion of "Pantsir". This is good! Now, it seems, they want to squeeze out in the navy. The main thing is that without the "foreign" lobbyism, they fought for an order in independent tests.

        Can not be. The carapace does not have a "dead" zone - the minimum range of damage.

    men are not happy with the TATA truck (they say a rare guano)
    But the buyer is always right. Although the Indians want their truck, we do not matter
    All the same, Russian and Belarusian trucks will be better
    it’s good that the air conditioning is visible in the pictures, even though they started thinking about the crew (maybe Russian
    troops by default with kondey go)

    And it seems to me, maybe I am wrong, the BAZ platform for the modular "TOP" and "Pantsir" would fit better, it would probably be more stable.

    The fact that 16 missiles on one machine is very pleasing. These mixed parts from shells and tori need to be placed around nuclear waste storage facilities and other strategically important enterprises. With the means of detection and target designation, it seems we are getting better, so that more air defense systems of the middle and near zones are needed. I wonder how this wheeled vehicle will work from the water (driven to a pontoon or barge and brought to sea)?

      or lake, river, pond. Where I liked it. Something like this, if simplified.

    Well, if people are convinced that the SAM, Thor ,, is a good thing, then probably it is. But at the first mention of the system, Thor-M, I dream that the following modifications will develop missiles with inertial guidance system with the possibility of radio correction, plus semi-active radar, active radar, thermal imaging or a combined CAM. And there is still used a radio command guidance system known since World War II. And about the unique vertical launch of missiles in a system of this class, to ,, ,, Thor: what Jewish ,, Barack ,, And a class, like, the same; and a vertical launch plus homing? There are developments in different countries of the class of the Torah class, with a vertical launch of missiles and implementing the principle: ,, shot and forget,
