    A very potent system... its problem was always price as the 3D radar is expensive, though the command guided missiles are cheap enough...

    Tor-M2DT is an arctic version of the Tor-M2 complex mounted on DT-30M two-link track-type conveyors. Combat vehicles of the air defense system have a unique cross, can overcome ditches, swim, do not lose their performance in more than 50 degrees of frost. They are capable of hitting targets a few seconds after their detection.

    The complex is designed to solve the problems of air and missile defense in the divisional level. It serves to cover important administrative sites, the first echelons of land connections from the attacks of anti-radar and cruise missiles, guided bombs, airplanes, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles. It consists of 16 vertical-launch anti-aircraft missiles with a range of damage up to 12 km and an altitude range of up to 10 thousand meters. The upgraded target detection station is capable of detecting aircraft created using stealth technology.

    The Defense Ministry in 2019 will conclude a contract until 2027 for the upgraded Tor system

    This includes the complexes upgraded to meet the Syrian experience, and in the Arctic version

    IZHEVSK, December 21. / TASS /. Next year, the Russian Ministry of Defense will sign a contract with Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol for a period of up to 2027 for the supply of Thor anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM), including the upgraded ones taking into account the Syrian experience and in the Arctic. This was said on Friday by Deputy Minister Alexei Krivoruchko during a visit to the plant.

    "Next year we plan to conclude a large long-term contract until 2027 on new complexes of the Thor family, including modernized ones and in the Arctic version," Krivoruchko said after a meeting with the management of the company. He added that the serial complexes are constantly being upgraded, including taking into account the experience of combat use in Syria.

    Separately, the Deputy Minister thanked the specialists of the enterprise for effective production activities and the delivery of products ahead of schedule. “The Kupol plant completed the state order in full until the end of the year, all equipment was supplied to the troops. I would like to especially note the Arctic version of the Thor complex, the first production batch is already in the troops too. Therefore, there are no comments on the work of the enterprise,” Krivoruchko.

    You could join those launches into a loop & post it to Youtube under a 'Most Satisfying' title I love you

    Is there any hint or rumor of an AESA search radar like Pantsir-S2?
    I understand the engagement radar has been upgraded but thats also still PESA.

    Why to go for AESA radar when PESA radar is excellent? Just to make it more expensive? There is not much difference in effectiveness between PESA and AESA.

    Yes, Pantsir-S2 have AESA search radar with two antennas with longer range for quicker upgrade of target informations. Engagement radar is still PESA because it do its job well and there is no need to develop new more expensive AESA radar, which at the end will do the same. AESA search radar could be installed on other platforms as well, but engagement radar is installed only on Pantsir.
