MOSCOW, December 26, 12:03 /ITAR-TASS/. The Tor-M2U newest anti-aircraft missile systems will be for the first time shown on May 9, 2014, in the Victory Parade in Moscow, Alexander Leonov, chief of air defence troops of the RF Land Forces, told journalists in connection with the 98th jubilee of air defence troops, marked on Thursday.
"It is the first time that the public at-large will have an opportunity to see these combat vehicles in the incoming year on May 9 during a Victory Parade in the Red Square," he said. "As of now, in three military districts, there are troop formations which already have available Tor-M2U systems."
Leonov said the Tor-M2U ensures an all-aspect destruction of air targets resultant of the availability in it of an all-round-view spotting station, a guidance station, and a unit of fire -- a vertical-takeoff anti-aircraft guided missile.
"Such a configuration of the combat vehicle makes it possible to reconnoiter on the move in any kind of terrain and fire at air targets from an unprepared position after a short, 3-5-second, stop," he said. "Besides, a high-capacity computing system ensures a complete automation of combat performance processes with a simultaneous firing by one launcher at four targets in a given sector".
