Russia develops advanced target simulation system

Moscow, May 22 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Russia is developing an advanced target simulation system for its air defence units based on the short-range Pantsyr system, the defence ministry has said.

The new system “can launch up to 12 targets in one salvo simulating cruise missiles or multiple rocket launcher rounds,” the ministry said.

A prototype of the new simulator has been tested jointly with the Air Force’s anti-aircraft units at the Ashuluk test site in the Volga area of Astrakhan, it said.

Designed to engage a variety of targets flying at low altitudesj, Pantsyr-S, has been manufactured by Russia’s KBP.

It combines a wheeled vehicle mounting a fire-control radar and electro-optical sensor, two 30-mm cannons and up to 12 57E6 radio-command guided short-range missiles.

Pantsyr can destroy targets up to 20 km away with missiles and four km using its cannons, KBP claims.
