Air defence gun/missile system 2K22M1
The Tunguska-M1 self-propelled anti-aircraft gun/missile (SPAAGM) system is designed to defend Land Forces’ units in all types of warfare and small installations against low-altitude air threats and also engage light-armored ground and surface targets. It can destroy targets at a range of up to 10 km and is especially effective in defeating attack helicopters before they reach the line where they use guided weapons.
The Tunguska-M1 is based on the 2S6М1 self-propelled anti-aircraft (AA) mount. All its combat assets are mounted on a tracked chassis that ensures high maneuverability on the battlefield and firing from unprepared positions.
The SPAAGM system carries eight 9М311-1М surface-to-air missiles (SAM) in the container launchers and two twin-barrel 30mm 2А38М1 AA automatic cannons (with 1,904 rounds). The system comprises target acquisition and tracking radars, identification friend-or-foe interrogator, digital computer and electro-optical (EO) systems, communications, navigation and life-support equipment.
