IZHEVSK, March 23. /TASS/. A new short-range anti-aircraft missile system is expected to be developed and supplied to Russia’s ground forces by 2030, Army Commander-in-Chief Colonel-General Oleg Salyukov said on Thursday.
"We will discuss tasks at a military and technical conference in Izhevsk for the development of an advanced short-range anti-aircraft missile complex and its place in troops’ air defense in 2030-2035," he said.
The Army commander-in-chief said the ground forces were currently developing their recommendations for R&D work on this issue. Subsequently, specific operational requirements will be elaborated to develop this system, he said.
The military and technical conference that is being held on the premises of the Izhevsk-based Kupol electromechanical factory will also focus on the quality of military products and the operation of tactical air defense missile systems currently in service with the Army.
The Tor-M2 system is currently the basic short-range air defense missile complex operational in the Russian Army. It is designed to provide air and anti-missile defense at the division level. The system is capable of protecting land troops from anti-radiation and cruise missiles, remote-controlled drones, flying bombs, aircraft and helicopters.
