True, but these are the next generation Russian AD systems which are just now entering service.

Interesting that the specs say that it can go after PGM like a paveway.

In modern warfare, particuarly involving aircraft in anyway size usually matters little unless your in urban warfare. Either way nice videos. I like how they cold launch their missles.

By being too big means that radar will allow missiles to lock more accurately onto this and allow it to get blown back to Moscow.
Interesting to see if they use this against the Chechens probably be effective but on a modern battle field the Russians will probably sell it to some third world African country that has never heard or seen an enemy with more weapons than an AK47.
