New ship-to-air missile system to be built in Russia — Almaz-Antey

The Navy was interested in an opportunity to build a naval version of the Tor air defence missile system.

Russia’s Navy is developing performance specifications for construction of a new ship-to-air missile system, a spokesman for the Almaz-Antey defence concern told journalists on Thursday at the Army-2016 forum.

"The Research Institute of Shipbuilding and Armament of the Navy is currently preparing performance specifications for construction of an air defence system to protect surface ships, in line with an instruction from the Chief Command of the Navy," the spokesman said.

Earlier, Almaz-Antey said the Navy is interested in an opportunity to build a naval version of the Tor air defence missile system to replace the outdated Kinzhal and Osa systems. The concern said the new modification may be ready in 2018-2019.
