In the International exhibition of armaments and military equipment INDO DEFENCE EXPO & FORUM 2014 Izhevsk Electro Mechanical Plant KUPOL, JSC will present the up-to-date short range surface-to-air missile systems Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K and Tor-M2KM.

INDO DEFENCE EXPO & FORUM 2014 – is the 6-th exhibition of armaments and military equipment of three armed forces of Indonesia: Land Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces (Indo Defence, Indo Aerospace, Indo Marine).

The exhibition is been held every even year since 2004 with the support of Ministry of Defense of Indonesia. In 2012 603 companies from 45 countries took part in the exhibition. More than 18 000 professionals visited the event. In 2014 participants from 50 countries are expected, Russian companies will be exposed wide also.

The exhibition will be held from November 5 — 8, 2014 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

JSC IEMP Kupol will present a new generation of the air defense missile systems of the Tor family: the Tor-M2E SAM system with a combat vehicle mounted on the tracked chassis, the Tor-M2K SAM system with a combat vehicle mounted on a special wheeled chassis and the Tor M2KM SAM system with modular-design of combat and engineering facilities mountable on automobile chassis, semi-trailers, trailers and other carriages with correspondent carrying capacity as well as in a stationary version.

The SAM systems of new generation of the Tor family is intended for air defense of subunits of various arms of service and armed forces, vital military, state, industrial and public facilities against attacks of aircraft, helicopters, various types of cruise missiles (high precision weapon), anti-radar missiles, controlled guided aerial bombs, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

In the Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K, Tor-M2KM SAM systems capability of simultaneous destruction of four air targets by four surface-to-air missiles (SAM) was implemented for the first time. These systems are easy to be integrated into existing air defense systems.

The Tor-М2KM SAM system provides for wide range of its application. A unique opportunity for transportation of the system on external sling of helicopter with carrying power of more than 15 tons enables its placement in the most out-of-the-way places, including roofs of buildings and constructions. Only this system can ensure the reliable air defense of megapolises against terrorist air attacks or aviation of a fighting against part.

The Tor-M2KM SAM system can be mounted on any platforms with carrying power of more than 15 tons at the option of a customer.

Tests of the Tor-M2KM SAMS with modular version of combat and technical facilities mounted on the Indian-made motor chassis TATA were undertaken in Kapustin Yar, the firing range of Ministry of Defense of RF, in October-November 2013. All performance characteristics of the system were confirmed during these tests. The Tor-M2KM SAMS has expanded killing zone by altitude up to 10 km and by range up to 15 km, provides engagement of actively evading air targets as well the targets flying at a velocity of 700 m/s and having the crossing point up to 8 km. The target acquisition, tracking radar and the missile guidance radar, 8 ready-to-launch guided surface-to-air missiles, two automated working stations for combat crew, control and communication aids, up-to-date navigation system, self-contained power supply system, fuel supply etc. are comprised within the same hull. The hull has 3 special brackets providing its fastening to various platforms. The system is equipped with backup, day-night electro-optical air target tracking system. The system is a self-contained completely and has an inherent electrostatic converter ensuring operation of the system from industrial mains. Combat operation of the Tor-M2KM SAMS is completely automated and nearly doesn’t require a man participation.

The present day the systems of the Tor family take the leading positions among similar short range surface-to-air missile systems.
