Pantzyr-1 ADA

Notes: This is a truck mounted antiaircraft/missile launcher on a KamAZ 8x8 truck frame. It is normally deployed in conjunction with the various ZSU self-propelled antiaircraft guns. The system is derived from that of the ZSU-30-2.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The Pantzyr-1 was spotted by reconnaissance elements of the 1st Brigade, 40th Infantry Division in June 1997. Designed with a surface radar system to track incoming aircraft, the Pantzyr-1 initially proved to be very effective against aircraft. It is capable of engaging up to three aerial targets at the same time, a feature that made it very difficult to engage. The vehicle was nicknamed the "Firecracker" by NATO pilots. Only 100 are known to have been produced and deployed before the November nuclear exchanges.
