Russia Unveils Naval Pantsir at IDEX

Russia Unveils Naval Pantsir at IDEX 15 February, 2019

Russian, JSC Rosoboronexport and JSC NPO High Precision Systems will demonstrate the Pantsir-ME shipborne air-defence missile and artillery system at IDEX, Abu Dhabi.

The Pantsir-ME air-defence missile and artillery system can be set up on ships with water displacement of more than 300 tons. The system provides protection of vessels from all the existing and prospective air assault weapons in the whole spectrum of their combat capabilities with an unconditional probability of kill, which is practically equivalent to one, including low-flying anti-ship missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The system includes a high-intelligent multimode adaptive radio-optical control system. All the stages of operator work – from the target acquisition to the firing – are completely automated. A combined use of the radio and optical control system provides for the all-weather and round-the-clock operability of the system. All this permits a guaranteed elimination of targets at long distances and in close proximity.

The system is capable of simultaneous firing at four targets attacking the ship while the kill zone for guided anti-aircraft missiles reaches 20 kilometres in distance and up to 15 kilometres in height. Besides, Pantsir-ME can first utilize its missile weapons, and then, in case of a miss, the target will be hit by the artillery fire with a 100 percent guarantee.
