"Delivery is taking place in accordance with the contracts and timeframes agreed with the UAE," Dzirkaln said. There are no complaints from the Emirates, he went on: "If issues arise, they are resolved quickly."

According to earlier reports the UAE was the Pantsir-S1's first customer, signing a deal for 50 systems worth 734m dollars. Thirty-six systems were later bought by Syria and then Algeria bought 38 for 500m dollars.

The Pantsir-S1 is an air defense missile / gun system designed to protect vital small-size and point military and industrial targets and land forces units to reinforce the air defense groupings responsible for the protection of troops and installation against precision-guided air attack from low and extreme low altitudes

Russia started delivering Pantsir-S1's to the UAE in 2009.
