Pantsir Missile The Pantsir-S1 (Carapcace-C1) is a new generation short-range low/medium altitude missile/gun air defence complex that entered service with the Air Defence Forces of the Russian Federation in 2010 and has been exported to a number of nations over the past several years. This volume sets out to detail the Pantsir-S1 complex in service with the Russian Federation and provides details of those systems delivered to export customers. In regards to the combat vehicle element of the Pantsir-S1 complex, the volume focuses primarily on the 72B6-E wheeled chassis fielded by the Russian Federation. However, other combat vehicle platforms, wheeled and tracked chassis, known, in 2017, to be integrated with the Pantsir-S1 complex, are also detailed as is the Arctic optimised Pantsir-SA and the Pantsir-ME warship-borne complex. All technical data relating to the respective weapon systems and their components have been provided by the respective design bureaus and manufacturers, as has much of the imagery and graphics with additional impute from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
