"A contract was signed with Equatorial Guinea on the margins of Army 2017 Forum to supply two combat vehicles of the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile/ gun system, as well as missiles and logistics to them," Maria Vorobyova said.

The Pantsir-S1 ADMG system is designed to provide close cover from all air attack vehicles in a heavy electronic countermeasures environment, under any weather conditions. Modern missile and cannon armament provides for the defeat of all types of manned and unmanned air targets.

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.

Pantsir-S1 can be mounted on a 10t Ural-5323 truck chassis with a turret that houses the armament, laying drives, sensors, control equipment and crew. The Ural-5323 truck is four-axle, 8×8 all-wheel drive with single tyre wheels.

The Pantsir S-1 can conduct fire at two targets at the same time and attack up to 12 targets within a minute. The system's effective range for missiles is 20 kilometers and the maximum altitude is eight kilometers, and for artillery shells up to three and four kilometers respectively.
