Tula KBP completed deliveries ZRPK "shell" in the UAE and Algeria

OJSC Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) from Tula completed deliveries of the Pantsir anti-aircraft missile-gun complex (ZRPK) to the United Arab Emirates. KBP together with Rosoboronexport signed another contract and is negotiating with Brazil. This was announced at the “DEFEXPO-2014” exhibition by ITAR-TASS Deputy Managing Director of PCU Yuri Khozyainov.

“We have fulfilled the contract with the UAE and Algeria, the last deliveries were made in the autumn of 2013. And through Rosoboronexport, we signed another contract last year for about 2,5 billion dollars, in the middle of the year deliveries will take place, ”said Khozyainov, without naming the customer.

As for Brazil, negotiations on the supply of “Pantrias” are continuing with this country, the deputy head of PCU said. “For now, Brazil is planning three batteries, or 18 combat vehicles, with an offset program. Of course, for KBP it is a small amount, but from a political point of view, an important one is the opening of a new market, ”he added.

According to Khozyainov, requests for ZRPK “Pantsir” are received by “Rosoboronexport”. Among potential customers appear countries in the African region, in particular, Cameroon.

    Well done! An example when "price-quality" is out of competition and "do not care" for political preferences.

    There are not enough armor in our army. We need to quickly bring their number to an acceptable level, otherwise the situation in the world today is not calm.

    This version is for export, a new version has been prepared for its armed forces. So, most likely, there is no harmful deterrence to the increase in production.

      Now in the army, if I’m not mistaken, there are a little more than 50 pieces, and my opinion is that export will still affect domestic production (if there were 500 of them, then another thing)

        The new one is called Shell-SM?

        In order not to produce a variety of types, you need to be 100% sure that the complex will serve by faith and the right for several 10 years, therefore, the 50 pieces declared by you are a search for "bugs" in various climatic points of your homeland and actions of "playful hands" of various levels of preparation of calculations that is, military trial operation.
        We looked, assessed, corrected the requirements according to our capabilities and made decisions that for export this is what you need, but for yourself a "beloved" you need something better ...
        Well at least I look at it as an "optimist"

          I am also an "optimist", so I want the Russian army to bring the Pantsiri to the number of at least a couple of hundred pieces as soon as possible

            And at what level the land. at. include them? The brigade is too bulky. To the Army, too small.

        In order not to sell oil for the "shell" it is necessary to sell the "shell" and put into service the "shell - more effective" or even higher. IMHO.

    A special model is made for export, a slightly different model, "more abrupt", is supplied to the Russian troops. And the markets must be conquered. good

    Once in demand means good technology. And demand gives rise to prices, so you need to sell to friends more expensive, and cheaper to your Ministry of Defense.

    The profit and implementation of the Pantsir project at the expense of foreign customers is great. But if it comes to that - frankly speaking, it is not comme il faut for the Saudis to supply our weapons. CA - the closest vassals of the United States, have already dismantled this "Shell" and wrote off these capabilities to themselves. In addition, the SA is a stronghold of terrorism and the main sponsor of all current terrorist actions in the Russian Federation, not to mention Syria, where the Saudis are opening a united front with Qatar. To supply our weapons to a country - a potential enemy in a promising theater of operations - is somehow wrong, I think. Business is business, but still .. it smells like it all.

      And who is not a vassal of the United States, then who can supply arms to Iran and several South American countries? This is a very narrow market.

        Well, you can say so, if "money does not smell."
        Everything is polar here, you trade with one hand, and you choke with the other. Politics is a dirty business.

    And yet, most organically, this installation looks exactly in the emirate version, on the MAN chassis. It seems that both the combat module and the chassis were created by one enterprise and specially for each other. On the KAMAZ chassis, the installation is disproportionately high, narrow and long. On BAZovsky, it’s somehow smeared on the ground and has a low density of the layout, the combat module looks alien sticky. At MAN, everything is branded, not ashamed to show, but a person makes his first impression visually.

    We helped them with "Armor", and they helped us with drones. If the UAE had not purchased our "Pantsir", then their presence in our Armed Forces would have been problematic.

    The carapace is an amazing complex! Revised a bunch of materials about him. Efficiency and modularity just smoothly endure the brain. smile

    Very good news. Let them buy the export option. Money will not hinder the Tula.
    And of course, we ourselves need a lot of them. There are also modernized missiles on the way ...

      In addition, the installation may have a "button" that excludes firing at our LA.

    I wonder why on the MAN chassis in the variant supplied to the United Arab Emirates?
    Ours are trying so hard in Dakar, but the Arabs still give MAN?

      Ours make the installation, and it doesn’t matter on which platform ... Man, Kamaz, Scania ... Our installation will work even for Caterpillar, quite. Any whim for your money ... Holes in the frame must be drilled current in the right place. !!!!

    Missiles shot down, yes. Putting guns on a wheeled chassis won’t be effective, especially for small-sized targets. Even hanging on the hydraulic supports does not help. Not tight enough body.

      To be honest, these guns are more likely for other purposes ... there is Yemen nearby and someone before that did not scoop up childishly (and still there is a chance to beware)
