Brazil wants Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile system

Brazil plans to purchase Russian Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system in 2016, the exact quantity is not reported.

A lot will be dependent on the allocated budget funds.

Signing the contract on Pantsir-S1 purchase have been delayed for several years. Previously Brazil claimed about its intentions to buy the systems in order to secure the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Now, the new terms are announced, according to the high representative of the Russian Federal service for military-technical cooperation.

In 2013 the Brazilian Ministry of Defence signed a memorandum of understanding, which enables it to sign a contract on Pantsir-S1 and Igla-S delivery.

Pantsir-S1 was designed to provide point air defence of military installations against aircraft, helicopters, precision munitions, cruise missiles and UAV's and to provide additional protection to air defence units from enemy air attacks employing precision munitions especially at the low-extremely low ranges.
