    This will be the first time that Buk-M3 will be shown in public

    The Buk-M3 air defense system is being used by the Land Forces of Russia since 2016. The "Buk-M3" air defense missile system is provided by JSC "Ulyanovsk Mechanical Plant", which is a part of JSC "Concern VKO Almaz-Antey". The structure of the Buk-M3 complex (the developer of the NIIP named after VV Tikhomirov) includes the command post 9S510M, the station for detection and target designation with the 9S36M radar, two self-propelled self-propelled guns (SOA) 9A317M with six antiaircraft guided missiles 9M317M in the TPK, one or two transport-launchers (TPU) 9A316M with 12 anti-aircraft guided missiles 9M317M in the TPK, as well as transport-charging machines (TZM) 9T243.

    I'm quite intrigued by the elevated engagement radar

    They were already part of M2 right? So this is just an upgrade to that.

    Also interesting that the transport launcher has 12 missiles all ready-use rather than the 4 reloads on older version

    Side question: the 9S36 is a PESA, able to work as normal search radar as well as continuous wave for guiding missiles, supposedly they have a 90deg coverage angle, so can 4 TELs set up at 90deg angles and cooperatively scan 360deg?

    The radar on the TELAR is just for missile guidance. The elevated radar is against cruise missiles. This is for surveillance:

    Its a secondary function but its able to scan as a conventional radar.

    I don't think it would make much sense putting a tracking radar on a big stick up in the air if the surveillance radar is down on the ground... you need a radar to find low flying targets up in the air just like you need a tracking radar up there to engage them...
