The missile systems Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K and Tor-M2KM will be represented at the International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition Air show China–2014
Samples of the up-to-date surface to air missile systems Tor-̀2E, Tor-̀2Ê and Tor-̀2Ề will be represented at the International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition (Air show China – 2014) which takes place from November 11-16, 2014 in Zhuhai, China.
The exhibition has taken place once per two years since 1996. In 2012 over 650 companies from 39 countries participated in it. Traditionally Russian part of the exhibition is the largest one. In 2014 the exhibition promises to be unprecedented by its size with participation of world-known aerospace companies as Boeing, Airbus, Soukhoi, etc. The first time in frames of the exhibition expected also is the participation of AF aerobatic teams.
Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol , JSC will represent samples of new generation of short range surface-to-air missile systems Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K as well as Tor-M2KM in the modular version (stationary version and on the mobile chassis).
The Tor family surface-to-air missile systems are intended for day/night air defence of vital military and public facilities against attacks of aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, antiradar and other guided missiles, gliding and guided aerial bombs and unmanned aerial vehicles within killing zone in an adverse weather and jamming environment.
The SAMS combat vehicle Tor provides simultaneous detection of up to 48 targets, ranking them by danger level, as well as tracking and simultaneous firing of four targets by four missiles launched serially. The surface-to-air guided missiles of the system are designed specially for effective interception of small-size actively evading targets to provide essential advantage over foreign baseline designs.
SAMS Tor is easily integrated into existing air defense systems, maintaining the capability to operate independently. As a member of new generation of short range air defense facilities of Tor class, the system features high efficiency against modern air threats mass attacks in counter-fire and radio electronic countermeasures environment.
SAMS Tor is being manufactured in 3 versions: Tor-M2E on the tracked chassis, Tor-M2K on the wheeled chassis and Tor-M2KM in modular version. Furthermore, there is a possibility to mount the modular version on roofs of buildings and constructions, at difficult to access areas, on trailers and semitrailers, on railway platforms and even on low-tonnage vessels, which can carry a load of more than 20 tonnes.
