    1.Missile capture in flight
    2.Missile guidance

    The feed can easily be made circular polarization, which supports above mentioned function, and might explain the lack of missile command and  capture antenna in new Pantsyr.

    but well that's merely my speculation.

    Stealthflanker, what are the latest technologies being developed for Missiles and Missile Defence Systems in the West & Russia ? By missiles I mean, cruise missiles, air to air missiles, Tactical Ballistic missile etc . Thanks.

    So official statement was 19 battalions of pantsir-s handed over in last five years. How many batteries is that? Or does battalion here equals a battery? How many vehicles per battery? 38 batteries? 160 vehicles?

    From memory each Divizion (Batalion) has 2 batteries of 3 vehicles ...so 6 in total...x19 = 114

    Several prototypes of the "Pantsir -SM" i are already manufactured



    Experimental design work on the prospective anti-aircraft missile and gun system "Pantsir-SM" will be completed in 2019, several prototypes have already been manufactured and tested.

    "We are running out of development work, if I'm not mistaken, in 2019. Already several samples of the "Pantsir-SM" complex have been manufactured, and tests are underway, "said Alexander Denisov, general director of Holding High-Precision Complexes.

    The head of "High-Precision Complexes" made his statement at the Dubai Airshow-2017 airshow, which takes place in the UAE.

    Earlier, the portal iz.ru reported, during the international air show in Dubai, the head of the holding "Russian Helicopters" Andrei Boginsky reported that in early 2018, Russia and India will sign an agreement for the delivery of 200 Ka-226 helicopters.

    Just a quick question which units/systems is pantsir replacing? I presume Sa-9 first then onto Sa-13 and Zsu 23-4.

    SA-9 is gone and the Sosna will replace the SA-13. https://www.armyrecognition.com/russia_russian_missile_system_vehicle_uk/sosna_short-range_air_defense_missile_system_technical_data_sheet_specifications_pictures_video_11312155.html

    The Pantsir doesn't replace anything directly. It is a point defense system for the Air Defense forces. At some point a version mounted on a tank platform will replace the 2S6M and the few ZSU 23-4 that are still active in the ground forces.

    Has any Sonsa been purchased?  Morfrei will replace? As I thought Morfrei was replacing some Sa-13 and sa-8. Wouldn't it make sense that when 2s6 is being replaced that the 2S6M replace the Sa-9/Sa-13/Sa-8?? It's a sonsa with added guns

    Pantsir is a great mystery to me too Smile Currently is to protest mechanized units like Tunguska and protect AAd systems (S-400/S-300) ir stationary targets. Whether Pantasir-SM is already a different class...

    I always thought that the zsu 23-4 upgraded with manpads was still a capable piece of equipment I suppose it was the platform, light turret armour and radar that puts it down. But easily fixed. An improved turret and radar and mounting on T-72, Bmp, MT-LB, BTR,  or Typhoon (6x6 /8x8) and problem solved of course it's unlikely Russia would do it for its own forces but export maybe. Even the upgraded zu -23-2 with manpad and radar could be mounted on BMD,  tigr, volk,  Bpm -97, bulat, vodnik, Typhoon 4x4, or truck. But then you could mount on same platforms strelets and Sonsa(larger platforms)

    1. Sosna has not been purchased yet. Just finishing testing & development. Sosna is a forward Air Defense system designed to go onto the battlefield.
    2. Tor is replacing the SA-8 and again is a forward AD system.
    3. Morfrei like the Pantsir is a rear point air defense system. Neither are designed to operate on the battlefield.

    But isn't a sonsa basically a Tungkuska without the guns??? So going back to my point just replace sa-13 with 2s6 when pantsir replaces 2s6

    This is a Russian Air Force threatd and Pantsir is an Air Force/ADF system.

    The Army has two types of air defence vehicles in a Division.... missile and gun/missile combined systems.

    In the 1970s the air defence missile vehicle was the SA-8, and the missile and gun platforms were the SA-9 that was replaced by the SA-13 and the Shilka.

    The TOR system replaced the OSA in the role of missile defence, while the Tunguska combined the missiles and guns to replace the SA-13 and the ZSU-23-4.

    TOR is very expensive but totally better than OSA in every regard except price.

    A Tunguska vehicle is expensive too but is cheaper than an SA-13 AND a ZSU-23-4 system on two different chassis.

    The Pantsir is a shelterised version of the Tunguska for the Air Forces.

    Pantsir and TOR will protect larger SAMs on land and likely at sea but in the Army the AD force looks like this:

    Verba/Igla-S for MANPADS, Tunguska, TOR, BUK, S-300V4.

    The Air Force is different in that it has MANPADS too, but no Tunguska....
    they will be:

    Verba/Igla-S, Pantsir, TOR, S-350, S-400, soon S-500.

    Pantsir-SM would fit between the latest model TOR and S-350...

    SOSNA is a low cost rather capable missile... it is a two stage missile like the Pantsir and Tunguska missile but is a laser beam rider like a Kornet missile and has a range of 10km.

    Pantsir on the other hand has potentially much greater range and is command guided...

    Thanks the info and breakdown. So as for morfrei??? As it seems Tor and buk will be around for sometime. Will Morfrei replace what's left of sa-13?

    Sosna is SA-13 Strela-10 replacement. It is VSHORAD system and is bewtween MANPAD and SHORAD. It have a little longer range than MANPAD and heavier warhead.

    So what's morfrei replacing? And range some sources say 5km and some 10km

    Nothing, it's a new system. Point defense for strategic areas to shoot down cruise missiles, etc before they hit.

    It seems to be a short range fast reaction IIR guided missile with lock on after launch capability.

    This capability should enable it to be carried inside weapons bays on fighters and bombers and be launched in a specific direction to look for its target.

    I speculate that Pantsyr SM antenna might be a "hybrid" between AESA and PESA. With following architecture
    Interesting theory study
    I like it: Fits the available evidence of being claimed as an AESA yet having an external horn, provides useful extra capability.

    The simple explanation would be that its just a PESA, cheaper than an AESA for the needed power to reach 40km range & AESA claim was a misunderstanding/mistranslation.


    The other day Syrian (export) Pantsir/s are reported to have intercepted 4 out of 6 Israeli missiles launched at a base near Damascus.

    Its actually an AESA radar regardless what you may think. This was confirmed even in various documents seen during the MAKS and what not.

    Hi, I want to ask about the firing accuracy of 2A38M gun. It is twin barrel gun and 2 barrels are very closed so when firing, do the ballistic of projectiles be effected by shock waves from the other side barrel? Thank you.
