Russia handed over to Iraq the final batch of Pantsir-S1 air defense missile systems under contractual obligations

49
Information Agency Interfax-AVN citing its own sources, reports that Russia has completed the fulfillment of contractual obligations related to the supply of Pantsir-C1 anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems to Iraq. The interlocutor of the news agency reported that in total under the contract more than 20 units of such military equipment were transferred to Baghdad.


Russia handed over to Iraq the final batch of Pantsir-S1 air defense missile systems under contractual obligations


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?

      Why does Iraq need shells? Iraq is a country without sovereignty, and the pin_dos will always do something to protect their oil fields. Most likely, our shells will be used for raskurochka and the Americans study how best to break through anti-aircraft protection. The same applies to other weapons that fall into the clutches of amers (mi28) through their conquered "friends".

        Iraq's air defense shot down two British aircraft with weapons for ISIS
        The Iraqi army shot down two British aircraft that parachuted weapons for ISIL terrorists in Al Anbar province.
        A senior Iraqi adviser revealed that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from security forces in al-Anbar province about the numerous flights of US coalition aircraft that drop weapons and materials for ISIL.
        “We found weapons made in the US, European countries, and Israel in areas freed from control, ISIL in the Al-Baqdadi region,” Al-Ahad site quoted Al-Anbar Provincial Council Chairman Khalaf Tarmouz.

          Do you remember the story of the colliding US helicopters?
          but there is a more interesting version, these are the Turks: Turkey in Syria shot down the US Marines
          Did the states conceal the attack of their helicopters by inventing a “Hawaiian legend”?

        He needs shells to defend the country. They Turks in the north feel at home. Togo and look, the F-16 will fly - to level the front edge of the Iraqi troops if they go to the Nineiva oil fields, which are now actually working for Turkey.

        The United States has long lost Iraq as a vassal. At that moment, when they launched democracy there, where Shiites suddenly won, in a country where Shiites are stupidly more - Shiites simply could not be expected to win. Then it resulted in a small sunnitorez, which the United States stopped with difficulty.

        Then, each new Iraqi government became increasingly pro-Iranian. Baghdad is very pro-Iranian right now. However, the United States has a number of methods and points that press vigorously - if they need to do something (Ramadi’s loss - the US urged to withdraw Shiites from the province, since Shiites began to slaughter Sunnis - the government did this, a few months later, Ramadi fell less than in 2 days - and the Sunni units fled, leaving all their weapons intact). But this does not always work. The US urged not to transfer M1117, M113 and Abrams to Iranian volunteers and Hazbol, the Iraqi government handed over the equipment. And now it is transmitting. At one time, the Americans defiantly froze the supply of armored vehicles, but then they thawed.

        Mi-28, Mi-35 and Su-25 are vital for them. Now the main and most bloody battles are on Mount Makhul - this is actually the first line of defense of the capital of the Caliphate. The mountain range was dug by moves, the Babahs even made a key military discovery - it turns out that you can even dig in rocky ground by hammering a trench with a pickaxe (Iraqi army men prefer to make a shaky rocky embankment to protect the hookah). And without constant strikes - Mahul would be an impregnable fortress for the army, and so they bite, slowly go forward. Already taken a few heights.

        This is an export option. Having dismantled it, all the same mattress covers and their ilk are better off breaking through our anti-aircraft defense. Technique is technology, and it’s not customary to squander your secrets. So that is okay with that.

        In Iraq, "Grad" on the basis of the Ukrainian KrAZ almost destroyed its combat crew
        As a result of the use of the Ukrainian version of the BM-21 Grad, Iraqi servicemen, who were watching the installation, almost went to the next world. A video about this incident appeared on the web. It shows how the MLRS, made on the chassis of the KrAZ-6322, successfully launches one rocket. However, the next RS has a starting engine for a very short time, just enough to fly out of the launch tube. A moment later, a blank shell falls a couple of tens of meters from the combat vehicle.
        Fortunately, this incident did not lead to dire consequences. None of the Iraqi government troops were injured. It is not yet clear whether the unsuccessful launch of the Grad shell occurred during hostilities or during combat training.
        Since 2004, for 10 years, Iraq has received about 2800 KrAZ-6322 vehicles for the needs of the national army. Some of the trucks, according to some reports, with the help of Ukrainian specialists, were adapted for the installation of BM-21 Grad rocket systems, which remained a legacy from the army of Saddam Hussein.

        Well, for this, you don't need a lot of intelligence: I hope it will not be difficult to put a beacon in this complex. Well, in the case of the capture of "Shell" by the Islamists, on this beacon track and destroy with a missile.

      The sale of such air defense systems is an absolute plus to our defense industry, now every penny is important, the main thing is that one of the systems in the USA does not end up. Why do they need air defense systems right now, the Americans seem not to be going to bomb Iraq's official authorities, although everything may be. They would now have more aviation and artillery.

      Representatives of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) terrorist organization have appointed a reward for the destruction of the TOS-1A heavy launcher launcher launcher.

      The Tula Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) celebrates victory - on November 16, 2012, by order of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, D. A. Medvedev, the Pantsir-C1 ZRPK was adopted by the Russian Army. Today, KBP carries out several orders at once for the production of the Pantsir-C1 anti-aircraft missile and cannon system, both for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and for foreign countries.

    I believe that such a weapon should be sold to our country in an already established state, and not in a country like Iraq where you don’t understand who for whom. In such a country there will always be people who want to profit or are direct supporters of igil. So this is not the most reasonable move, and if they don’t God forbid, they will start shooting at our airplanes in the hands of terrorists, and besides, the radius of destruction is the most optimal.
