Russia is developing a new air-droppable missile defense system, which is designed to be para-dropped to ground forces and protect paratroopers from enemy aircraft operating at high or medium altitudes, Zvezda TV reported.

The crawler-mounted system, codenamed Ptitselov (Fowler), is a hybrid of the well-known Pantsir-S2 cannon-missile system mounted on an air-droppable BMD-4M armored vehicle.

At the heart of the new complex system is the Pantsir-S2 anti-aircraft gun/surface-to-air missile system which can engage targets at altitudes from 15 meters to 15 kilometers at a distance of up to 20km.

The Pantsir-S2’s missiles intercept airborne objects traveling at speeds of up to 3,600 km/h meaning it is capable of downing any aircraft, cruise missile or drone.

The com
plex also effectively engages “smart” air bombs, and was specifically designed to take down assault helicopters using its two independently-operated 30mm cannons. Its radar can spot targets at a distance of up to 36km.

The new system will also employ some of the features of the advanced Sosna mobile air defense system consisting of 2x6 Sosna-R missile launchers mounted on a turret which can turn 360 degrees.
