TOT-E2 Surface-To-Air Missile system mounted on TATA multi-axle chassis

Russia’s defence exporter, Rosoboronexport has offered to integrate its latest Tor-E2 Surface to air (SAM) system into any existing air defence system including that compatible with NATO standards.

The Tor-E2 SAM system has been developed and produced by the Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Concern.

The Tor-E2 is a short-range air defence system which can simultaneously engage up to 16 targets flying from any direction at a range of 15 km at an altitude of up to 12 km, a Rosoboronexport release said.

Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport and the system will be on display at the upcoming Army 2018 event in Moscow starting August 21.

The system is used to provide air defense for army units in all types of combat and on the march, as well as to protect military and other critical facilities from attacks by manned and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Tor-E2 can engage airplanes, helicopters, cruise, anti-radar and other guided missiles. In addition, it effectively destroys the attacking precision guided munitions, such as glide and guided air bombs, as well as UAVs within its engagement envelope.

The system is capable of operating in intense jamming and counter-fire environments, in any weather, day or night. Unlike most of its foreign counterparts, the Tor-E2 combat vehicle is an independent, mobile, all-terrain fighting unit that provides detection and identification of air targets on the march and at the halt, target lock-on and engagement at the halt, from a short stop and on the move.

A high level of automation and unique algorithms of the SAM system minimise crew involvement in the engagement process.
