The Russian Air Force has inducted the first ten Pantsir S1 (SA-22 Greyhound) anti-aircraft surface-to-air missile systems.
The Pantsir-S1, developed by Instrument Making Design Bureau (KPB), is a short-to-medium range combined surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery system, according to RIA Novosti.
The system, equipped with two dual 30mm automatic cannons that can engage targets up to 4km away, will enhance the effectiveness, stability and survivability of national air defences.
Pantsir-S1 can carry up to 12 two-stage solid-fuel surface-to-air missiles in sealed ready-to-launch containers, and protect point and area targets.
