    Во второй половине 2016 года ЗРК «Сосна» поступит в российскую армию и станет достойным украшением войсковой ПВО: его способности позволяют гарантированно «подчищать» ближние рубежи обороны от воздушного нападения.

    In the second half of the year Russian army will start receiving Sosna VSHORAD complexes.

    just thought i would share some various pics relating to the topic enjoy. the shelter version is the first i have seen, and i really like the idea of the Igla mounted on the GAZ vodnik these would be ideal for protecting Iskander units.

    Finally they made a simple mobile SAM complex, which I expect for some time. It will be excellent to escort wheeled convoys behind the front lines.

    For a light cheap air defence vehicle I prefer the SOSNA-R towed setup with an EO ball turret with a quad launcher for high speed SOSNA laser beam riding missiles with a range of 10km and a single twin barrel 30mm 2A38M cannon (one of the two guns from a Tunguska).

    Put that on an 8 wheel vehicle and it would be cheap but quite effective.

    New Russian Gibka-S air defense missile system ready for preliminary trials.

    The new Russian advanced Gibka-S air defense missile system is being prepared for preliminary trials, General Designer of Russia’s Machine-Building Design Bureau Valery Kashin told TASS. The system is based on a 4x4 light tactical vehicle Tigr fitted with an Igla-S or 9K333 Verba surface-to-air missiles launch station.


    Russian-made Gibka-S is based on a Tigr 4x4 light tactical vehicle armed with four ready to launch Igla-S or 9K333 Verba surface-to-air missiles

    "In accordance with the Defense Ministry’s technical specifications, we are developing the Gibka-S system based on the Tigr light platform. We are carrying out the work in cooperation with our subcontractors on our own initiative," Kashin said.

    "The system is currently being prepared for preliminary trials. It has been manufactured and is being adjusted now. We hope that its preliminary trials will be followed by the state tests and then the system will be accepted," he added.

    According to the general designer, the company is also discussing the development of another light short-range air defense missile system similar to the Strela-10 complex.

    "The talk is about the Ptitselov R&D work. If the task is assigned, we will seek to take part in the work," Kashin said.

    As the design bureau’s press office told TASS earlier, the Gibka-S system’s squad combat and reconnaissance-control vehicles are designed to defend combined-arms units from aircraft flying at low and extremely low altitudes both in the daytime and at night.

    The Gibka-S is based on the Russian-made Tigr 4x4 light tactical vehicle with four ready-to-launch 9K338 Igla-S (SA-24 'Grinch') or 9K333 Verba (Willow) surface-to-air missiles (SAMs), mounted on a launching station which can be lowered inside the vehicle in road position.

    Nice thumbsup

    This would find great use at those superlight brigades, or at missile units (both Iskander brigades and RVSN (Strategic Missile Forces) units.)
