The first of six Russian-made Pantsir-S1 air defense systems would be shipped to Serbia before the end of this week, Serbian TV reports.

According to the report, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu reached this agreement with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vulin during his visit to Belgrade on February 17.

The report also noted that the Serbian soldiers have undergone training and are ready to work with the new equipment.

On October 24, 2019, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic announced that Belgrade ordered the Pantsir systems. In January this year, a source in the military-industrial complex told TASS that shipments are slated to begin in late February.

The Pantsir-S system is made for close-range air defense for civilian and military objects in any weather and radio-electronic conditions around the clock. The system is also capable of engaging ground-based and water-based threats.

Bad purchase : Pantsir looks good on paper but is a serious failure.

It did pretty good in shooting down a few dozen israeli jets in Syria, so it’s an excellent purchase!
