Pantsir S1

The Pantsir S1 (Cyrillic: Панцирь-С1, Russian designator: 96K6, NATO: SA-22 Greyhound) is a self-propelled combined short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system. The system is armed with two twin 30 mm 2A38M cannons and two six round surface to air missile launchers firing the 57E6 missile.

Pantsir S1 was delivered to Algeria, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Iraq, Jordan, Oman, Russian Federation, Serbia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Viet Nam.


The 2RL80 is an operating in the S-Band air surveillance and target assignment radar using a passive phased-array antenna. The antenna includes an interrogation channel operating in UHF-Band.


The 1RS2-1 “Shlem” (Cyrilic: 1РС2-1 «Шлем», NATO: Hot Shot) is an operating in Ku-Band target tracking and missile guidance radar mounted on the front face of the turret (see figure 2). In the first equipment of 1995 the 1L36 was used (see figure 1). The radar is capable of performing target illumination for semi-active missiles in the X-Band.
