Samples of the up-to-date surface-to-air missile systems Tor-М2E, Tor-М2К and Tor-М2КМ will be presented at the International Defense Exhibition «IDEX – 2015» which takes place from February 22-26, 2015 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

IDEX is one of the most representative international defense exhibitions and safety technologies. It is the unique opportunity for manufacturers to present their technique to representatives of different countries, officials and military specialists. Russia has been the constant participant beginning from the very first exhibition in 1993. In 2015 more than 20 companies from 10 countries participated in it.

Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol , JSC will present samples of new generation short range surface-to-air missile systems Tor-M2E on special tracked chassis , Tor-M2K on special wheeled chassis as well as Tor-M2KM in the modular version, independent and on the mobile chassis.

Surface-to-air missile systems Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K and Tor-M2KM are intended for day and night air defense of the important public and state, military and industrial facilities, military forces and vital military against attacks of high precision weapon, aircrafts, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles in an adverse weather and jamming environment. The main performance feature of SAM systems Tor is to attack up-to-date high precision weapon, such as anti-radar missiles (HARM and others), cruise missiles and guided aerial bombs. That particular weapon will present the most threat for the countries exposed to aerial attack.

Combat vehicles of these surface-to-air missile systems provide synchronous processing of 144 marks from aerial objects, build up the tracks of targets, analyze them and select 10 the most dangerous ones, track them and simultaneous destruct up to four air targets by four guided missiles launched from one combat vehicle. The surface-to-air guided missiles of the system are designed specially for effective interception of high precision weapon to provide essential advantage over foreign baseline designs.

SAM systems Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K and Tor-M2KM are easy to be integrated into modern air defense systems of any country, maintaining the capability to operate independently. As a member of new generation of short range air defense facilities, the systems feature high efficiency against modern air threats mass attacks in counter-fire and high-precision weapon in the first place.

Independent combat module Tor-M2KM is the latest development with enhanced target engagement zone and unique possibility of using the system for combat tasks performance in various conditions, in different types of forces with high reliability and efficiency. Detection, targets tracking and guidance radar means, combat stock, special equipment, energy and life utilities, fuel reserve, modern satellite navigation and the other system equipment are placed in unified body.

Unified body of independent combat module of SAM system provides its deployment on any mobile chassis with loading capacity not less than 20 ton on semi-trailers, railways platforms and other platforms including deck of low-tonnage vessels corresponding carrying capacity at the opinion of a customer. Thanks to low weight (not more than 15 ton) the system transportation is carried out on an external sling of МI-26Т helicopter enables its placement in the most out-of-the-way places, including roofs of buildings and constructions. Surface-to-air missiles system Tor-M2KM is capable to solve any customer’s requirements.

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