On June 5, forces loyal to the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) seized a completely destroyed Pantsir-S1 air-defense system in the town of Tarhunah.

GNA forces imposed control of the town after a brief battle with the Libyan National Army (LNA). GNA troops received support from Turkish combat drone and thousands of Syrian militants.

Turkey’s TRT TV shared a video of the captured Pantsir-S1. Last month, nine such systems were reportedly destroyed by Turkish combat drones, at least four of them were stationed in Tarhunah.

Similar to other Panstri-S1 systems supporting the LNA, the one captured in Tarhunah was based on a German-made MAN SX 45 8×8 trucks. The UAE military is the only operator of this version.

Most of the Pantsir-S1 systems destroyed in Libya were either inactive, or moving. Turkish forces were apparently able to obtain valuable intelligence on the movements and operational status of the systems.
