Russian TOR-M2U air defense system successfully intercepted US HIMARS missiles

The TOR-M2U is equipped with a new battlefield fire control missile system that uses algorithms to recognize, classify and prioritize targets with the help of artificial intelligence, and is capable of engaging up to four threats simultaneously.

The Russian Army received the first TOR – M2U missile systems at the end of 2014, and they entered service in 2015.

The TOR-M2U is a modernized version of the Russian series of surface-to-air missile systems, designed primarily for air defense. It is capable of intercepting a variety of aerial threats, including aircraft, helicopters and precision-guided munitions.

Mounted on an armored vehicle chassis, the "TOR-M2U" boasts high mobility, allowing it to operate effectively in various terrains.

This makes it particularly suitable for the protection of mobile military units and strategic installations.

The system is equipped with sophisticated radar and missile technology that allows it to track and engage multiple targets simultaneously, providing robust air defense capabilities in high-threat environments.

The TOR-M2U uses the proven SAM surface-to-air missile that is optimized to destroy small maneuvering targets.

The missile of the air defense system "TOR-M2U" uses the principle of radio command of missiles.

Target acquisition radar scans the environment while moving or stationary, detects and identifies targets.

Computing devices analyze the situation, prioritize detected targets, and generate targeting information for the homing radar.

The homing radar locks onto the target, takes over its automatic tracking and calculates the moment in time when the SAM should be launched to attack it.

It then decides on the SAM to track it automatically and automatically guide it to the target by radio commands.

In addition to these functions, the guidance radar controls the warhead of the missile.

Sends a delay command to the electronic fuse of the weapon depending on the speed of approach of the target to the projectile, thereby ensuring the destruction of the target with a multitude of fragments at the required moment.

In the event of a miss, the missile's self-destruct device is activated.
