The modified Tor air defense system will receive double the ammunition and a lightweight body

Specialists of the Kupol plant will equip a modified version of the Tor anti-aircraft missile system with a new lightweight body and increase its ammunition capacity, Vyacheslav Kartashov, assistant to the general director of the enterprise, said.

In a commentary for the Zvezda TV channel, he noted that engineers have already begun to create a new module, taking into account the technical solutions worked out in the Arctic.

“We will use double the ammunition. We will be using software that we tested while shooting at a low-flying target. Well, a new, lighter hull will be created, ”said Kartashov.

According to him, to date, “Thor” is the only air defense system that can be transported by helicopter on an external sling.
