The Tor-M2U surface-to-air missile defense system was designed by the Almaz-Antei Concern to engage planes, helicopters, cruise missiles, precision guided munitions, unmanned aerial vehicles and short-range ballistic threats. T

According to Almaz-Antei deputy chief designer Pavel Sozinov, the successful test was putting the Tor–M2U on a qualitatively new technological level making it possible to engage aerial targets when is moving.

A single Tor-M2U armoured launch station carries eight vertically launched missiles which ensure guaranteed destruction of aerial targets moving at speeds of up to 700 meters per second 500 meters to 12,000 meters away at altitudes of between 10 meters and 6,000 meters.

Previous version of the TOR systems are currently in service in Greece, Venezuela, China, Iran and Egypt.
