Russia to Supply Pantsir Anti-Aircraft Systems to Myanmar


Recommended Posts

Myanmar today signed a contract for Pantsir S1 air defense systems during Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu’s visit to the country.

Aside of Pantsir, Russia will also supply Orlan-10E reconnaissance drones and radar stations, Interfax reported today.

In a recent interview, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin hinted at the possibility of finalizing the deal. “Russia has already delivered MiG-29 and Yak-130 aircraft, Mi-17 and Mi-24 helicopters to Myanmar. In the coming years, they may buy more aircraft, armored vehicles as well as Russian-made air defense systems,” he told the local media.

Myanmar has also ordered six Su-30 jets, delivery of which will be completed by the end of 2022.

We saw how well the Pantsyr performed against IDF aircraft in Syria. Nothing is impregnatable, there are solutions for every problem. Pantsyr can't do anything against a massive rocket barrage that will saturate an entire area the size of two football fields in seconds.

Not surprised. It is more of a business interest. 

Only they'll be left holding is a skeletal remain of Myanmar.

However, I understand ASEAN's apprehension going against Junta.

They don't want refugee upheaval coming their way!
