      • FT practical;
      • APDS.
  • SAM storage and reloading system (SRS) (according to the number of FMs)
    • SAM storage and reloading system

    Provides for placement in the underdeck rooms of 32/48 containerized SAMs directly under the fighting module and for automatic loading and reloading of the fighting module with SAMs.

    Time of SAM reloading from the SRS  - not more than 68 s.

  • Basic maintenance assets
    • Basic maintenance assets

    Composition:

    • adjustment vehicle (intended for adjustment procedures of the radio electronic and optronic systems of the fighting module);
    • base kit of SAM test equipment (provided for selective inspection of SAMs in storage. The inspection is performed by automatic check of the SAM without removing it from the container).
  • Training aids
  • Application peculiarities

  • The distinctive feature of the system is the combination within a single turret mount of missile and artillery weapons and the integrated radar-optical weapon control system , which increases its combat efficiency as compared to counterparts that have each type of weaponry separately.

When repealing massive air raids of high precision weapons almost 100% kill probability of the targets is ensured due to 4-channel guidance system as well as firing at targets at three zones of approach - twice by SAMs and once by the guns with SAM launch interval being 2-3 s.

  • The system ensures:

  • simultaneous engagement of 16 targets (full package of the system);
  • efficient engagement of a wide range of aerial targets;
  • capability of engaging small-size surface targets;
  • high target handling capability;
  • combat operation in adverse weather conditions;
  • automatic operation mode.
