Anti-aircraft missile and gun system (zrpk) “Pantsir-SM” capable of destroying hypersonic targets, said the “red star” Deputy chief of anti-aircraft missile troops of Air and space forces (VKS) Colonel Yuri Muravin.
According to him, “Shell-CM” is created for the air battles of the future. “Aerial combat of the future, especially at the last line of defense, will not duel Zenith calculation of the missile and the pilot, tactical fighter, and the fight with the machines smart, precise, operating in large groups, throughout the range of altitudes at high, often at hypersonic speeds,” — said the Colonel.
Muraskin added that zrpk will receive a “new means of radar surveillance and missile guidance, high-speed computing facilities, a new anti-aircraft guided missile with greater range and increased power of the warhead”, and “the elements of artificial intelligence that will not only survive in difficult conditions of struggle against enemy aircraft of the future, but come out of it a winner.”
In may, the Defence Blog sources in the defense Ministry reported the “problem” of self-propelled antiaircraft land and sea-based “Pantsir-S1”.
In April the Deputy commander of the VKS, Lieutenant-General Yuri Sins spoke about the test of “Armour-CM”.
