Russia’s Pantsyr-S anti-aircraft missile systems successfully struck ground targets with their guns in Syria, in particular, terrorists’ jihad mobiles, Chief Designer for Air Defence Systems at the Shipunov Design Bureau of Instrument-Making (part of High Precision Systems Company within the state hi-tech corporation Rostec) Valery Slugin told TASS on Wednesday.


"The Pantsyr can shield itself, for example, against an infantry fighting vehicle or a jihad mobile and this is how its guns were used in Syria and this use proved to be effective," the chief designer said.

The Pantsyr anti-aircraft missile/gun system strikes air targets mostly with missiles, the chief designer specified. "We try not to allow a target to approach the gun fire range. The closest range for the missile armament is about 1.5 km. If something approaches closer, we destroy these targets already with the guns," he explained.

Anti-ship capabilities
The air defence missile and artillery system Pantsyr, if installed on the coast, is capable of hitting surface targets on the sea, according to Valery Slugin. 

The original terms of reference required that Pantsyr should be able to attack targets on the ground. This capability relies on the optical targeting system.

"I believe that Pantsir will be able to attack surface targets on the sea, too. If placed on the coast, preferably as high as possible, the system will be able to attack surface ships ten kilometers away.

The Pantsyr-S1 (NATO reporting name: SA-22 Greyhound) is a ground-based self-propelled surface-to-air missile/gun system designated to shield military and civilian facilities, including long-range air defence systems, from all modern and future air attack weapons. The Pantsyr consists of 12 surface-to-air missiles (six missiles in two transport and launch containers each).

The Pantsyr is also armed with two 30mm guns, each of which is capable of firing up to 40 rounds per second.
