Media: Russia at the parade will show a new version of the "Shell" instead of the "notorious"

On June 24, 2020, at the Victory Parade in Moscow, Russia will show a new version of the Shell shell instead of the “notorious,” writes the American specialized online publication Defense Blog.

It seems that Russia has coped with the COVID-19 pandemic, since President Vladimir Putin ordered that this anniversary and solemn event, which had previously been postponed due to an outbreak of coronavirus, be held. During the parade, among other new products, the general public will be presented with a modernized version of the Pantsir-SM air defense system based on the KAMAZ-53958 Tornado (8x8).

ZRPK “Shell-SM” has an armored cabin, an engine with a capacity of 450 hp and automatic transmission. The anti-aircraft complex is equipped with a new radar and an advanced infrared electro-optical target tracking system. In addition, a new missile appeared in the arsenal of the complex, the range of which increased to 40 km.

Work on the "Shell-SM" was carried out taking into account the experience gained during the Syrian conflict.

Let us note that by “problematic” and “notorious” the American edition refers to the difficulties that arose in the aforementioned air defense missile systems in Libya, when Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones shot them from the air with impunity. Moreover, in Syria such misunderstandings did not arise. Such an argument can hardly be called adequate, because the failures of Russian-made air defense missile systems in Libya are associated not with the complex itself, but with the professional preparation of the calculations.

    You have a crooked horizon. From all sides. What can you do, the school was not able to straighten out - you have to live like this until the end.

    The saying about a bad dancer is very suitable here. What else can I say if the Shell even had problems with such a simple and slow-moving goal ... Sadness!

    Of course, service in such complex complexes requires a higher technical education. Even the notorious "red button" (full automatic mode) requires not only pressing it under the necessary conditions, but also appropriate preparation. The fact that the Libyan Shells turned out to be "beaten" is not a lack of "Shells", but the unprofessional training of the crews. As the saying goes, "with a fool you can and ... break." In fact, all Arab wars have demonstrated just such an attitude towards fellah's technique. In case of WHAT, throw and run, not stand and defend. This is the diagnosis. Do not let them - they will break or sell.

    Well, you have to think, to whom to sell, and not to sell to everyone.

    It’s clear with the Turks, but when did he regret the Americans?

    What "Notorious" printed there, you can and should spit and grind.
    The "shell" is a treasure for improvement. The fact that the missile is now there with a 40 km firing range is already great. When will there be shells with remote detonation? To mow a trifle. And the laser does not interfere with shoving to this system. Let it be blinding for the first time. Even in exchange for one weapon. In general, I'm saying that the system is a storehouse for improvement. And this is not the last modification.
