NEW DELHI, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian air defense concern Almaz-Antey has demonstrated an advanced short-range air defense system Tor-M2E at the international arms show DEFEXPO 2014 in India. This Russian air defense system, created at the Izhevsk-based electro-mechanical plant Kupol of Almaz-Antey concern, participates in an Indian tender for delivery of 52 short-range air defense systems.
India bids for delivery of short-range air defense systems in a planned tender, Deputy Director General for military-technical cooperation in air defense concern Almaz-Antey Viktor Boyarkin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. Russia's main arms exporter Rosoboronexport decided to put two Russian weapon systems up for a tender — air defense system Tor-M2E developed by Almaz-Antey and air defense missile gun system Pantsir-S1 developed by the instrument-making design bureau of High Precision Systems holding.
In the tender India plans to buy air defense systems to form two regiments — a total of 52 air defense systems.
Kupol has already adapted autonomous combat module of short-range air defense system Tor-M2KM, putting it on wheeled chassis produced by the Indian Tata Motors. Russian air defense system Tor-M2E is showed on the wheeled chassis made by the same company at the international arms show DEFEXPO 2014.
Air defense system Tor-M2E is designed for air defense of the most important state and military facilities and their protection from any strikes of cruise, anti-radar and other guided missiles, warplanes, helicopters, unmanned drones, guided and flying bombs at any time of the day, in any weather and in a hard jamming situation.
