The Russian BAZ (Bryanskiy avtomobilniy zavod) truck developer and producer has released a photograph showing the version of the Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 'Greyhound') combined gun/missile system that has been developed for the Russian Army.
Although the basic turret, cabin and power supply are nearly identical to those on the earlier export version, the most obvious change is that the Russian system has only eight ready-to-fire 57E6 missiles rather than the 12 fitted to export systems. The system's IFF antenna is located on the top of the 2RL80 surveillance radar rather than the rear-mounted location used on the export versions.
For the Russian Army 96K6 Pantsir-S1 the system is mounted on a BAZ-6909 8x8 four-axle truck chassis with a kerb weight of 19,000 kg and a load-carrying capacity of 22,000 kg. The gross weight of the missile-armed vehicle is not more than 41,300 kg. Trials of the system in this configuration were conducted in mid-2008.
The chassis is powered by YaMZ-8431.10-020 or YaMZ-8942.10-033 diesel engine with an output power of 347.8 kW. This gives a top speed of 80 km/h and a range of 1,000 km. The BAZ-6909 has a minimum turning radius of 15 m and a fording depth of 1.4 m.
