Military equipment exhibition in Delhi
The Russian Military-Industrial complex, a member of the “Vjsokotochny”-High-Precision complex Holding is displaying new air defense and artillery systems, among which are the land based “Pantsir” and the sea based “Palma” systems. Alexander Denisov, Director General of the company had this to say about the it ems of his firm.
The showpieces of our equipment are the “Pantsir” and the “Palma” missile-canon systems, developed at the Tulsky design bureau of air defense equipment. They are unmatched in the world in terms of combat qualities. The Pantsir-S1 can destroy cruise missiles, the drone, air and land based targets by using rocket or the artillery-canon system. The Pantsir has gone into service with the Russian army, and specialists say it is good as an independent weapon in an air attack, as well as an air defense means to protect servicemen on the move. Pantsir is also capable of protecting strategic facilities. Palma was developed for deployment onboard ships of difference classes. It is designed to take on high precision weapons, warplanes and unmanned planes. It is different from its predecessor by high precision and an ability to hit targets without fail, as well as an ability to neutralize jamming. Some foreign count ries shave purchased Palma for their s hips. In talking about those two systems, it is necessary to point out that they are relatively cheap. Hence the deployment is in harmony with the criteria of cost and effectiveness. In addition to those two systems, there is also the “Kornet”- an anti-missile system, whose major task is destroying armoured targets. Our designers have created a modified version of the system called “Kornet”Em”, which has an additional ability of destroying low flying and low speed air targets-copters and drones”, said Alexander Denisov.
There is high interest in the equipment of the “Visokotochny” Holding and Pantsir has been delivered to some countries in the Middle East, he added.
