Tor-E2 SAM system introduced
Rostec’s JSC Rosoboronexport has introduced the new Tor-E2 short range air defence system for the protection of military and other critical facilities.
The Tor-E2 combat vehicle is an independent, mobile, all-terrain fighting system that provides detection and identification of air targets, target lock-on and engagement at the halt, from a short stop and on the move.
A high level of automation and algorithms of the SAM system minimise crew involvement in the engagement process.
The Tor-E2 can engage aircraft, helicopters, cruise, anti-radar and other guided missiles; it can also target precision guided munitions, such as glide and guided air bombs, as well as UAS within its engagement envelope.
The system is capable of operating in intense jamming and counter-fire environments, in any weather, day or night. A battery of the four-channel Tor-E2 SAM systems, consisting of four combat vehicles, can simultaneously engage up to 16 targets flying from any direction at a range of at least 15km and an altitude of up to 12km.
Each Tor-E2 vehicle carries 16 missiles. Two Tor-E2 combat vehicles can also operate in the link mode, which enables them to exchange information about the air situation at different altitude ranges and coordinate joint engagement operations.
The Tor-E2 SAM system can also be integrated into existing air defence systems.
