This Russian Air Defense System Looks To Neutralize American Attack Helicopters

April 01, 2016

For every move made by America, there is a counter move attempt by Russia. This is the best way to describe the development of Russian TOR-M2 SA-15D Gauntlet Air Defense System.

The Tor missile system is an all-weather low to medium altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system designed for engaging airplanes, helicopters, cruise missiles, precision guided munitions, unmanned aerial vehicles and short-range ballistic threats. The system is commonly known by its NATO reporting name, SA-15 “Gauntlet”.

The Tor-M2 is an upgraded version of the Tor-M1 short-range air defense missile system that was created to counter America’s overwhelmingly superior air assets, like Apache helicopters and Unmanned Air Vehicles among others. You can’t blame them for trying.
