Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile complexes carried out combat shootings at targets in the Kaliningrad region, as shown by footage released by the Russian Ministry of Defence on Thursday.

According to the press service of the Russian Baltic Fleet, the drills were held as a part of a field training competition ‘Keys of the sky’ for air defence units.

A defence ministry statement said the targets were models of helicopters and armoured carriers located at a considerable distance from the complexes.

In total, two units of the Pantsir-S1 and about 50 military personnel of the air defence units of the Baltic Fleet participated in the drills.

Considering how Pantsir performed in Syria (no less than 3 units demolished by IDF, likely more), I wouldn’t consider this gear. I’d IFV/APC mount the German/Swiss NBS MANTIS 35mm turret since…

every shell separates in 152 tungsten flechettes just when entering the interception area, then truck mount Iron-Dome launchers… Sorry, but an Iron-Dome battery…

every shell acts like a shotgun when arriving close 2 the target.

Then I’d truck-mount Iron dome : 3.5x the range of Pantsir-S1, 80 missiles per battery, very very few misses.

I’d also consider coupling the MANTIS turret with some kind of crude “microwave gun” in order to roast drones/missiles electronics. Might be more expensive…

Missing with 3 launches is intolerable. No Pantsir if I decide.
