The management of Almaz-Antey Group has set the task of working out proposals on further developing the Buk antiaircraft missile systems. We’ll prepare and submit these proposals jointly with the Group to the Defense Ministry,” he said.
 

Without waiting for a final decision and with the Group’s full support, the institute has already launched work now to develop promising technical solutions,” Bely said.

Latest variant of the Buk air-defense system is the Buk-M3, which is currently under development. The Russian armed forces could start getting advanced Buk-M3 air defense missile system in 2016. The Buk-M3 was presented for the first time during the MAKS 2013 Moscow Air Show with a graphical representation.

The Buk-M3 medium-range surface-to-air missile systems, a modernized version of the Buk-M1 system (NATO reporting name SA-11 Gadfly), features advanced electronic components and could be regarded as a completely new system.

The Buk-M3 has a max engagement range of 70 km (43 mi), 25 km (16 mi) more than the M2.
