that would give the chance to have a search radar searching but another one or two search radar just listening, with these vehicles switching roles and then moving to keep a good view of the local air space while remaining safe from SEAD aircraft.
the other vehicles will be handed targets which they can engage on their own in fairly large numbers due to the extra missiles they carry.
Assuming 8 vehicles to a battery with three having search radars being command vehicles and 5 being missile turrets that means 6 x 30mm twin barrel cannon, plus (24 x 5) + (12 x 3) missiles = 156 ready to fire missiles... which is plenty.
I completely agree. No what if some of the Pancir-S1 would mix with the Pancir-S1 to form a single multilayer system covering everything up to 40km thus sold as such.
