"Our military technical cooperation with Malaysia has been developing rather dynamically on the mutually beneficial basis. It is fostered by successful operation of Russian-made equipment supplied earlier and our measures to improve after-sale services, - declared Nikolai Dimidyuk, Rosoboronexport's special project director and head of the delegation at the exhibition. - Good prospects are open for Russian air systems such as multi-role fighters and military transport helicopters in particular, air defence equipment, close combat weapons as well as littoral control systems and patrol vessels".
Pantsir-S1 (Nato code SA-22 Greyhound) is a combined short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft automatic cannon produced by KBP of Tula, Russia.
The Pantsir-S1 is armed with two 2A38M 30mm automatic anti-aircraft guns developed from the two-barreled 30mm GSh-30 gun, coupled with twelve 57E6 surface-to-air missiles on launchers.
The Pantsir-S1 is able to defeat almost the entire spectrum of air threats, all types of precision guided weapons in particular, flying at a speed of up to 1,000 m/s and approaching from different bearings at an angle of 0- 10 ° to 60 - 70°, aircraft flying at a speed of up to 500 m/s, helicopters, remotely piloted vehicles, as well as light armoured ground targets and enemy manpower.
