The FK-1000 is an surface-to-air missile weapon system with high operational performance which can be used in all-weather conditions against medium-to-low altitude and medium-to-short range aerial targets.
 

The FK-1000 is able to intercept various offensive air weapons such as cruise missile, armed helicopters, air-to-surface missiles and fixed wing aircraft.

The whole air defense system is mounted on a 8x8 tactical truck chassis. The weapons turret is mounted at the rear of the truck chassis with a command and control cabin at the rear of the crew cabin truck. The FK-1000 fire control system includes one target acquisition radar mounted at the rear of the turret and one tracking radar at the front.

The FK-1000 is armed with two 23mm cannons, one each side of the turret, coupled with twelve KS-1000 surface-to-air missiles launchers, six on each side of the turret.

The FK-1000 can hit targets from a range of 1.2 to 22 km to an altitude from 50 m to 10 km.

The FK-1000 seems to be very similar to the Russian-made Pantsir S-1.
