Earlier in “Rosoboronexport” they said that Iraq buys 24 anti-aircraft missile-cannon complex “Pantsir-С1” from Russia. The contract was signed in 2012 year. At the same time, the contract had a package form: on its basis, Russia took up the supply of Iraq not only with the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile system, but also with Mi-28HE combat helicopters.
To date, Russia is implementing another contract concluded with Baghdad. We are talking about an agreement under which the Iraqi army will receive Mi-35 helicopters and Su-25 attack aircraft.
For reference: ZRPK "Pantsir-С1" was developed in the Tula State Unitary Enterprise "Instrument Design Bureau". In service with the Russian army appeared in 2008 year. It affects air targets at altitudes from 15 m to 15 km at a distance of up to 20 km. Cannon armament is a twin automatic caliber 30 mm.
At that level of discipline and the level of training of the Iraqi army, which is today, the question arises: what is the likelihood that the same Pantsiri-С1 can be in the hands of ISIS militants?
