"In a special ceremony the newest missile and artillery systems Pantsir-S1 were handed over to the personnel of an air defense unit of the Central Military District in Novosibirsk. They are responsible for protecting crucial military and industrial facilities and enhancing the air defense of western Siberia," the press-service said.

In the middle of December air defense personnel carried out a test firing program at the Ashuluk proving ground in the Astrakhan Region.

"The crews had undergone a course of training at a center in the Leningrad Region in advance," the Central Military District said.

The Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound NATO code name) is an air defense missile-gun system designed to protect vital small-size and big military areas, industrial targets and land forces units and reinforced the air defense units responsible for the protection of troops and military installations against precision-guided air attack from low and extreme low altitudes.

The armament of Pantsir-S1 consists of twelve 57E6 surface-to-air guided missiles and two 2A38M30-millimetre automatic guns developed from the two-barreled 30mm GSh-30 gun.
