Rostec unveils naval weapon system Pantsir-ME
The weapon system is designed to provide protection against modern air threats, including low-flying and small-sized unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Pantsir-ME combines an artillery armament, multimode missile armament and an integrated radar-optical armament control system in a single turret mount.
The system is designed to open fire on a target with missiles and then, if the target has not already been destroyed, use artillery armaments in the dead zone of anti-aircraft missiles.
The Pantsir-ME’s combat module includes a multifunction radar station with a phased antenna and an intercept missile with an engagement range of 20km with the ability to engage four targets simultaneously. The combat module can work autonomously or as part of a cell of four modules and can be installed on ships with a displacement of more than 300 tonnes.
Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec, said: ‘The missile intercept zone has been increased from ten to 20km in length and from three to 15km in height. All the stages of combat performance, from target search to firing, are performed in motion. The combined use of radar and optical control systems provides an all-weather 24/7 operation’.
