As part of the planned combat training activities in the summer period of training, the personnel of the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and cannon complexes (ZRPK) from the Northern Fleet Air Force and Air Defense Association worked out the tasks of defending the Arctic coast from enemy landing forces.

During the exercise, the combat crews of the battery, consisting of the Pantsir-C1 complexes, made a march of many kilometers from the point of permanent deployment to the designated area. There, they successfully performed target shooting, imitating the enemy’s technique.

The targets were mock-ups of armored personnel carriers located at a distance of up to three kilometers. The firing mission was carried out as usual. The high accuracy of hitting target positions was noted.

During the firing, the combat crews worked out the standards for loading missile and cannon armament of the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile system in the field, for deploying the complexes from the traveling position to the combat position.

The Northern Fleet is armed with an Arctic version of the Pantsir-S1 complex, mounted on a KamAZ-6560 chassis. In terms of its tactical and technical characteristics, the complex is capable of hitting air, ground and sea targets at various distances with missile ammunition. The rate of fire of a 30-mm artillery anti-aircraft machine gun is up to 5 thousand rounds per minute.
