Northern Fleet to get first Arctic version Tor-M2DT anti-aircraft missile systems in November


The first division of the Tor-M2DT anti-aircraft missile systems in the Arctic version will be delivered to the Northern Fleet in the third decade of November, said Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov, head of the Russian Armed Forces air defense.

The anti-aircraft gunners still have to undergo retraining, conduct combat coordination and carry out combat docking firing with the use of new weapons.

Tor-M2DT is an arctic version of the Tor-M2 complex installed on DT-30M two-link track-type conveyors. Combat vehicles of the air defense system have a unique maneuverability: they can overcome ditches, swim, do not lose their performance in more than 50 degrees of frost. They are capable of hitting targets a few seconds after their detection.
