In the summer of 2020, Americans taken out one ZRPK "Pantsir-S1" from Libya to the Ramstein base in Germany. At the end of February 2021, the Pentagon and its allies recognized the Russian "Pantsir-C1" as an ideal anti-aircraft system.
A report from the NATO Air Force Joint Center of Excellence says that the Pantsir-C1 is designed for precision defense against aircraft and precision weapons attacks, especially from low and ultra-low altitudes. Its characteristics allowed it to occupy a vacant niche between the means fighting large-sized drones and countermeasures of mini-UAVs. He is a real threat to the Alliance, so he must be neutralized before entering the battle.
NATO drew attention to the fact that the Turkish military is extremely serious about these air defense missile systems. For the destruction of only one "Pantsir-C1" of the Syrian government forces in Idlib, the Turkish Armed Forces conducted a real military operation, using a significant amount of air and ground forces, as well as electronic warfare and electronic warfare equipment, the document summarizes.
Note that the Turks are not in vain wary of the "Pantsir-C1", because they destroyed dozens of drones, hundreds of missiles and countless handicraft products in the form of flying balloons and other items. These air defense missile systems shot down more than one Turkish Bayraktar TB2; Israeli Heron-type UAVs, American RQ-21A Integrator and MQ-9A Predator also fell under their fire. NATO still remembers the failed joint missile attack of the United States, France and the United Kingdom on Syria in April 2018, when most of the fired ammunition was intercepted by an air defense system.
