Also I doubt that 9 Pantsirs were destroyed by drones or air strikes. Most of the "destroyed" systems were left by retreating soldiers.
Well it's a truck that can move same way as the pick-ups they use to retreat.
It's a very mobile system. You can use it to retreat.
Also those numbers are from US. They are meaningless.
Note also that most of them were coming on russian chassi which means Russia is getting ride of them in favor of S2 or SM which is smart.
You are spot on in the first part of your post, and totally wrong in the second. Russian A2/AD and all those stories are BULLSHIT. I posted some days ago a serious document where they lay very clear that they are not planing about hiding in their holes until NATO decides to stop beating them but actually about laying waste of the attackers infrastructure. These guys fought and won WWII, do you think they are suckers in terms of warfare??
They put more money on S-400 and other AD than on buying more cruise missiles or BM.
I'm not saying they lack offensive weapons. I'm saying they show more interest on defensive ones.
We see in Syria vs Israel or NK or Lybia that the one who attacks always succeed to destroy enemy infrastructure, expensive systems.
IMO they should buy more sukhois than AD systems. Just like their clients should buy more fighters than AD.
