The Kvadrat-M mobile air defense system showed during the military parade in Myanmar is based on the MZKT-69222 6x6 military truck chassis. The vehicle is fitted with a modernized version of the 2K12 Kub surface-to-air missile (NATO code SA-6 Gainful).

Three missiles are carried on a turntable that can be traversed through a full 360º with the missile elevated on their launchers to a maximum of +85º.

The upgraded Kvadrat uses a new digital moving target selection system featuring a suppression coefficient increased up to 28 - 30 dB.

The system is now equipped with tracked target classification system able to detect different type of threats as aircraft, helicopter, cruise missile and other aerial threats.

The Kvadrat-M could use the 9M38M1 or 9M317E missiles also used by the Russian-made air defense systems Buk-M1 and Buk-M2.

The 9M38M1 is a surface-to-air missile using active homing when approaching the target. It has a range from 3.3 to 35 km at an latitude from 15,000 m to 22,000 m. It can carry a warhead of 70 kg which is triggered by a radar proximity fuze.

The 9M317 missile, compared to the 9M38M1 missile incorporated into the Buk-M1 system, has an extended engagement envelope of up to 45 km in slant range and up to 25 km in altitude and horizontal range, as well as a broader range of targets which can be engaged. Range of targets with RCS = 5 m² is 40 km. The different appearance from the 9M38M1 includes significantly shorter length of the wing chord. It provides for the use of inertial-corrected control system with semi-active radar seeker 9B-1103M-guided navigation on a proportionate basis.
