    The towed version of the TOR-M1

    17 of the 29 TORs received recently by Iran were of these towed version.

    I would be very much surprised if the towed version of the Tor M-1 did not include a generator to cater for the energy needs of the radars and launcher in one self-contained package. Even if the generator is not mounted on the trailer itself, but off-carriage, it needs to be positioned relatively close, say, 50 meters. The appearance of the trailer in the photo The Armenian posted suggests that it is not just a bare-bones launcher, but comes with a built-in generator, probably either a diesel or a gas turbine.

    [FONT=Verdana]Of course, the trailer has some little power unit for the launcher’s drives and radar; it can be a little diesel or an electrical engine with accumulator batteries fed by the power unit in the truck. But it can’t be so easy target for thermal imaging devices as the truck engine with distinctive heat signature. Imperceptibility is very important if the adversary is technologically advanced.[/FONT]

    I agree that the IR signature of the APU has to be quite low. Based on the facts that both the Tor and the earlier Osa have an APU (gas turbine, IIRC) to enable operation even with the main engine shut down, I'd guess that the towed version has the same APU. That may be small in size, but needs a high output, as the system has high power requirements.

    Hey I thought I'd bump this thread with a good question.

    What is the current standard issue desert terrain camo that the Russian Army fields? Say if they deployed troops to a desert region, what camoflauge would they have? Is it the same Afghan era tan or do they have a desert camo they have developed, and if so anyone have any pics?

    Much like the West, Russia will have a desert cammo when Russia needs to fight a war in a desert environment.
