    With the recent problems of Shtil and Redut, they are probably looking for a quick alternative and testing Tor in its basic form if it will work on navy ships no problem. Then probably work quicker to use a navy variant of it as a temporary replacement for ships till Almaz Antey can get their shit together for their ship based AA systems.

    As recently reported on our blog, JSC Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol Concern Almaz-Antey under the state defense order put the first regimental kit of the 9K331M short-range anti-aircraft missile system Tor-M2, which went to re-equip the 538th Tarnopol Guards antiaircraft missile Order Aleksandra Nevskogo regiment, 4th Guards Kantemir tank division of the Western military District. at present, the staff of 538-th regiment trained at the new complex in the 726th training center of troops counter ozdushnoy Defense Ground Forces in Yeisk (Krasnodar region).

    Reporting (including video) about the retraining of staff of 538th regiment of the SAM "Tor-M2" in the 726th training center in Yeisk published March 25, 2017 local web resource www.yeisk.info.



    The bmpd comment. From the text of the report, it can be seen that the regiment of the Tor-M2 missile system is similar in composition to the pre-reform (up to 2009) anti-aircraft missile regiments equipped with early versions of the Tor missile system, and includes four batteries of four anti-aircraft missile systems in each A total of 16 combat vehicles).

    Recall that in 2016, the first two serial divisional kits of the new 9K331M "Tor-M2" SAM were delivered to the Russian Ground Forces, which marked the beginning of the serial production of this system at the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant "Kupol" JSC. "Tor-M2" Includes three fire batteries (total 12 combat vehicles).

    Actually they had enormous problems with the original naval TOR system... the Udaloy class was in service for several years before they got the guidance system fitted and working... matured into a very capable system however...

    You can reduce number of vehicles in battery this way, operating cost of this are somewhat lower than current Tor platform and reduces auxilary fleet required per battery. On top of that you have number of cabin variants here, some include living quarters, fuel transport etc. Unification at its finest.

    First Tor-M2U air defense system regiment deployed in Russia's Southern Military District

    The Russian Ministry of Defense has deployed a regiment of the newest 9K331M Tor-M2U SAM systems in the Rostov region. These systems are capable of destroying drones, airplanes and helicopters while on the move. Under certain conditions, these systems will cope even with such complex targets like precision-guided missiles and bombs. The new military unit became part of the newly formed 150th Motorized Rifle Division, the newspaper Izvestia reported.

    According to experts, these SAM systems will reliably defend Russian ground forces from precision-guided weapons.

    As Izvestia was told in the Southern Military District, the formation of the 933rd SAM regiment started late last year. The new military unit became part of the 150th Motorized Rifle Division and now is being stationed in the town of Millerovo, Rostov region. Since June 1 this year, the first crews of the regiment started mastering the Tor-M2U at the Air Defense Training Center in the city of Yeisk.

    According to expert Anton Lavrov, the 933th Air Defense Missile Regiment relates to air defense for ground troops. Therefore, unlike the Aerospace Forces’ SAM regiments and brigades, this regiment does not protect important industrial and social facilities. Its task is to cover the regiments, battalions and companies of the division, to which it belongs.

    "The newest Tor-M2U SAM system is able to protect the dispositions of the division both in the position area and on the move," the expert said. "Such systems cover motor rifle, tank and artillery units, headquarters, communication centers and even divisional warehouses. The Tor systems of the new air defense missile regiment will easily repel not only an air raid of attack aircraft, helicopters or attack drones. With their capabilities, they can effectively counter also complex targets such as cruise missiles or precision-guided glide bombs. Such targets are difficult to detect by radar, while their flight path seriously hampers their destruction by surface-to-air missiles."

    The development of the Tor SAM system began in the mid-1970s. However, it was not until 1986 that the SAM systems began entering the field. In 1991, the Tor underwent its first upgrade. The new version was adopted under the M1 designation.

    In 2016 it became known that Russia’s Ministry of Defense had placed a contract for the purchase of several divisional sets of the 9K331M Tor-M2U SAM systems. The Tor-M2U is a completely revamped vehicle. It has received a number of unique capabilities through the latest electronic equipment, including the capability to fire at several targets simultaneously in automatic mode and the fire-on-the-move capability. The 9K331M can engage targets at a range of up to 15 km flying at altitudes up to 10 km. Each Tor-M2U vehicle carries eight missiles.

    The 933rd Verkhnedneprovsky Air Defense Missile Regiment, decorated with the Order of Red Banner and the Order of Alexander Nevsky, was formed in 1942 as the 1273rd anti-aircraft machine-gun regiment. It fought from Smolensk to Berlin during World War II, was decorated and received its honorary names. After the war, the regiment was stationed in the German Democratic Republic. In 1962, it was renamed the 933rd anti-aircraft regiment and, ten years later, became an air defense missile regiment. In 1991, the regiment was transferred to the North Caucasian Military District. Subsequently, the regiment was reduced to a SAM battalion, which, in turn, was disbanded in 2008, the Izvestia newspaper recalls.

    The 9K331M series is tied mostly to Tor-M1. 9K332 is Tor-M2. Unless I am mistaken. But they would be using the newer missiles.
