It is noted that "the main difference between the Tor-M2KM" and the other Tor-class air defense systems is the modular execution of combat and technical equipment. The air defense missile system can be placed on any automobile chassis, semi-trailer, trailer, railway platform of an appropriate carrying capacity and low-tonnage vessel. ”

The complex can also be used in a stationary version, for example, on the roofs of buildings.

    An interesting proposal, but I would like it to be studied more thoroughly, so to speak, to evaluate all the pros and cons

        What can I say, the Kazakhs, it is commendable ... I think it is mutually beneficial and the main thing is that the security system of the two countries is reaching a new level! And now it is very important, they are shaking us ... Nazarbayev is still a "dinosaur", stability and good relations with Russia is his political credo .! I think more than once he was offered a lot of money and benefits so that he would quarrel with us ... Holds! hi

          Rather, it is simply beneficial to certain officials, whose relatives are the founders of SKTB Granit LLP.

          Since when is the "private shop" privatized in the early 90s by T.N. Adamov? became part of the state company "Kazakhstan Engineering"?
          Concern "Almaz-Antey" and "Sozvezdie" have repeatedly stepped on a rake and various PR companies in cooperation with the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan. There is only one option without corruption schemes - it is simply to donate weapons such as the S-300, which were donated by Russia or the Hamers, donated by the United States. In all other cases, a rollback of 30% is required at least. And since the Kazakh-Russian military-technical cooperation is strictly regulated by the CSTO agreement, which states that the purchase is made only at the domestic prices of the Russian state defense order, even Rosoboronexport is not able to include kickbacks in the cost of Russian weapons for Kazakhstan. Therefore, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan constantly criticizes Russian equipment and, at the slightest opportunity, they prefer to buy anything and anywhere, but not in the Russian Federation.
          A "service center" based on a private shop Granit is one of the options for legalizing the system of "kickbacks". Moreover, what is most interesting, the creation of a regional "Service Center Almaz-Antey" was officially proposed back in 2009 by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, but then the KNB of the Republic of Kazakhstan considered that such close cooperation with the Russian Federation would harm the interests of Kazakhstan and by force eliminated the Kazakh-Russian the working group of the ministries of defense, which has already prepared 99% of a package of documents on the creation of both the Almaz-Antey Service Center and the automated control system of the unified air defense system based on uniform technical principles.

    An ambitious bid to swim in shares on the maintenance of high-tech equipment.
    It is not reported how the Russian concern responded to this proposal.
    laughing Who will say that? If they had previously agreed and would have signed up for fanfares at the exhibition. And so the campaign is still at the proposal stage - it is necessary to consider the expenditures of manpower and funds with the subsequent return in part of the time and take into account possible risks when investing in such an enterprise.

    I think this "good" proposal should be considered by the Russian leadership of the Defense Ministry ... and not in a hurry.

    There are services for cars, why not for air defense systems.
    Although it certainly sounds unusual.

    I think this proposal will be weighed, first of all, perhaps, the domestic political situation will be evaluated. And so, why not? After all, the more common ground in the cooperation of Kazakhstan and Russia, the less likely it is to change the geopolitical course ... Nursultan is not eternal. Yes, and family ties between the citizens of these two countries from the time of the USSR will be more than even Russia and Ukraine have.

    Russia should not finance production outside of Russia, especially in the territory of the former USSR, where the Bandera scenario is possible to repeat
