Russian air defense system "Tor-2" will receive a ship version

The Russian air defense system "Tor-M2" in the future will receive a ship modification. The agency reported about it yesterday RIA News with reference to Fanil Ziyatdinov, General Director of IEMZ Kupol.

The Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile system was developed in the late 2000s. The combat vehicle is capable of effectively countering air targets moving at speeds up to 700 m / s at an altitude of 10 km. At the same time, the range of destruction of the domestic complex reaches 15 km.

SAM "Tor-M2" is made on the basis of a tracked chassis and has a cruising range of up to 500 km. The complex is equipped with 8 missiles 9М330. The missiles are launched vertically, like in the S-300, to protect against climatic factors, as well as against the impact of bomb fragments.

According to Zayatdinov, work on the naval version of the air defense system is being carried out in parallel with the creation of a version on a wheeled floating chassis. In addition, after the modernization, the range of destruction of the complex will increase, and its guidance systems will receive additional protection from radar suppression.

Recall that in 2015, an upgraded version of the Tor-M2U from the Almaz-Antey air defense concern was able to detect and hit a conditional target on the move. In turn, specialists from the IEMZ Kupol are considering the possibility of robotizing the domestic complex.

    "up to 700 km / h"
    Typo - 700ms The weapon is good, already tested. We have only a few ships.

    Refusal from the main gun deck gun (on the diagram) is impermissible stupidity.

    The complex is definitely excellent. No doubt the best in the world. But, he will not be on the ships. It will not fit into the architecture of the BNK air defense. Kohl already has both the Zaslon-Redut and Polyment-Redut air defense systems, and on the way is the Redutovskaya SAM 9M100, with practically the same characteristics as the 9M338 ..., only in quad blocks, unlike the 9M338 ... Yes and nonsense in the article, the Tor M2 air defense missile system is armed with 16 9M338 missiles, and not 8 ancient 9M330 missiles ... It is possible that the Tor MF sea missile, developed on the basis of the Tor M2, will be made in a container / trailer version, for armament during the threatened period of auxiliary ships of the fleet or will be installed during the modernization of the BNK pr. 1144, 1145, 1155 where there was already a SAM "Dagger" (Thor).
