National Interest magazine recognized the unique Russian anti-aircraft missile and gun complex “Pantsir-S”. According to military observers, this complex is the perfect weapon to reflect the massive attacks of drones. It has no analogues even in the US army.
Russian antiaircraft missile-gun complex “Pantsir-s” is also known under the code name HATO SA-22 Greyhound. It is built on a truck chassis, equipped with two 30-millimeter cannon and 12 anti-aircraft missiles.
During the conflict in Syria, these complexes were repeatedly struck by various missiles and drones, according to the article. So, in December of last year they were hit by two shells, which produced fighters for the Russian air base Hamim.
