The keys to the new systems were presented by Major-General Igor Golub, Deputy Chief of the Air Force and Air Defense of Belarus. He underlined: “With the acquisition of the third battery we have formed a full-fledged air defense missile division, which wields the latest armaments”.

One Tor-M2 battery comprises four vehicles. Thus, the Belarusian army has received 12 Tor-M2 vehicles so far.

The vehicles were made in Russia using Belarusian chassis (MZKT). The chassis has earned a good reputation. “We have already tested it in sands of [the Russian firing range] Ashuluk. We have no complaints about the Belarusian chassis,” noted Igor Golub. He also explained that one combat system can fire at four airborne targets simultaneously.

In mid-December 2011, Belarus reported the delivery of the first TOR-M2E (9K332), or SA-15D GAUNTLET, from Russia’s Almaz/Antei Design Bureau.

Each Belarusian battery comprises four 9A331MK fire units, a vehicle-mounted 9S737MK Ranzhir-MK command post, two 9T244 transporter/loader vehicles with additional 9M334 modules, and one 9V887M2K battery-maintenance vehicle.
