A Tor M2 surface-to-air missile system has been for the first time spotted in the Russian Khmeimim air base in Syria, according to a photo released by Livejournal blogger Ecoross1 that visited Syria on April 21-22 within a group of the Russian journalists and bloggers.

The released photo is the first confirmation of the Tor M2 surface-to-air missile system deployment in Syria.  The Tor M2 is a low to medium altitude, short-range air defense system. It’s designed to engage aircraf, cruise missiles, precision guided munitions, unmanned aerial vehicles and short-range missile threats.

Other photos released by Ecoross1 also show that the Russian military has set up a safety fencing near parked aircraft. This effort is most likely a result of the repeated attempts by militants to attack the airbase, including attempts damage Russian aircraft with mortar or rocket fire. In December 2017, a mobile militant group armed with mortars even succeeded in this.

    Very sensible precaution! I can’t wait to see Syria get the S300’s! The Israeli rection should be worth watching as they will be completely snookered. Control of Syrian airspace denied permenently; not before time I may add. Great stuff as this will allow Syria to rebuild their country in peace and enble the country to return to prosperity. Immigrants in Europe will return as will investment both from Syrian expats and foreigners.

    • as

      Tor M2 also intended to defend against the regular unguided ballistic missiles employed by insurgents. I think this is serious since they also anticipated an attack originated very close from their bases.

      • Nigel Maund

        Agreed! Thanks!

    • First Lastname

      I wish the immigrants from Europe will return, but that will require action on the part of European governments. So many of those migrants are from Somalia or West Africa that what happens in Syria is totally irrelevant to whether or not they go back. :(

      • TheLulzWarrior

        These governements gotta be tossed out 1848 style.

      • Turbofan

        Even if all migrants wanted to return to their homelands they wouldn’t be allowed to. This isnt just about people running to Europe because of war and hardship. This is an artificial problem created to counter an aging European population..

        • alfred963

          It is about the satanic system of israel trying to take over the world extending israel either you leave or you die so leave

        • Ewan

          I doubt it. Europe is very race conscious. They would rather welcome other European migrants – say from eastern Europe, than African or even Arab. It may be something more sinister – like an external force trying to change European demographics. tThe migrants come from cultures that have higher fertility rates and hence larger families. In 20 years time, 1 million migrants will multiply into xmillion while their respective host countries might have reached Zero Population growth.

          • Ariel Cohen

            The JWO has already stated several times that are the ones behind the migration to Europe. They want to change the demographics enough so their JWO policies will be easier to institute . .

    • Merijn

      The U.S., IsraHell & Europe should pay for the Damage they have done…!!! Let them Pay for Rebuilding Syria…so that Syrian Expats, Refugees & Emigrants can keep their Euro’s for themselves…make the West Bleed for their Crimes…

        Tough tits for them! It’s long past time this Rogue State was stopped in its tracks.

        • Ariel Cohen

          Well stated…!

    • Justin

      I agree. however, I would presume they will escalate to a new level. Perhaps attacking Syrian air defence systems with more cruise missiles than syria can handle. Or, using special forces to infiltrate (HALO) and destroy but this will cost them lives and could likely fail!

      I love the way russia is handling this war. They never escalate this war, they leave it up to their adversaries and then simply bring in new hardware as a reactionary cause! Pretty much sends a message.

      This is the real reason why they are using drones to attack the Russian airbase! Plausible deniability! Russia needs aircraft hangers badly, that way these drones with small grenade sized bombs couldn’t do any real damage to aircraft at all!

      • Ewan

        Shows supreme superiority over their US – NATO adversaries – Its like an adult holding off a kicking screaming kid with one hand while having a burger with the other!

          hahahaha, that was an AWESOME analogy!

    • Pacificnorthwest

      Israel is a war crime.

  • Alexander Lyapunov

    Forget this shit and get some more s-400’s up there. That will surely keep the zionists away.

    • Pacificnorthwest

      Both the Pantsir and the Tor M2 fill a critical role providing an integrated layered air defense, working in conjunction with S-300 and S-400 systems that Russia has in theater (on naval vessels as well)

      • Alexander Lyapunov

        Those are mostly for missiles and other light objects, while the s3 and 400’s are hard hitters that make pilots shit themselves. I thinks Pantsir systems will have a hard time shooting down planes, also because of their relatively short range.

        • Pacificnorthwest

          Yes… of course. Each system has its specialized role. The Syrian manned Pantsir AD systems performed very well against the last few ZioNATO missile barrages.

          But yes, agreed it is getting painted by the phased array radars of the the S-300 or S-400 systems that makes ZioNATO pilots become squeemish.

          • Alexander Lyapunov

            There’s only s-400s in russian bases, no? What a shame, i doubt we will see them in action soon.

          • Pacificnorthwest

            let’s hope we don’t, because if we do that means WWIII is underway

          • Merijn

            Nah…WWIII is not for Pussies… and the Western Puppeticians are Cowards…and every Western Plane crossing Syrian Borders is there Illegally and thus Legal to Shoot their Birds out of the Sky…

          • Pacificnorthwest

            Which is precisely why Russia is making the move of transferring (or as some suspect, activating already emplaced S-300 systems, both launchers and radar units) over to Syrian government control an additional layer over the updated but still Soviet era Pantsir systems the Syrians already have.

        • Drones , Attack Helos , Slow aircraft , all will be deterred by S22 Pantsyr. Even fast mover caught in close range will get clobbered due to the missile high speed and engagement radius

    • Thomas Wolsey

      Russia will not waste s400 when s300 is enough.
      If Russia really send s300+Pantsir s1 it will be enough to cause a intense headache in Israelis.

  • Jesus

    Tor M2 is a great addition to Pantsir close intercept air defense systems, its rockets have a longer range, and they are equally deadly as the Pantsir missiles.
    Low level penetration by Israeli airplanes or high level bombings using smart bombs are a thing of the past. A battalion of Pantsir consisting 8 vehicles can fire 96 missiles at incoming targets, and a battalion of Tor M2 could fire 64 missiles before reloads, ample firepower to repel air attacks involving 3-4 squadrons of Israeli fighters……….something Israel has not done in decades.

        How dare you deny the Holocaust™??? My grandmother was turned into a bar of soap. Twice! Once by Dr. Mengele himself! And my grandfather was masturbated to death on an electric floor in a gas chamber. He survived by holding his breath! Those Nazi bastahds!

        Then he was thrown into a cage with a bear and an eagle and had to befriend and tame them both in order to survive! You’re a monstah!

        • jerry hamilton

          This is all true. I know because I supplied the Bear.

        • thats funny , yeah the over demonization of the NAZI in the west caused some warped minds .. they think the only one getting the gas treatement are only jew… many many people got gassed and they are not all jews.. who remember them ? who CARES about these non jews who got gassed ?

          • jerry hamilton

            No one was gassed.
            If gas was really used, you could not then go in the room and drag the bodies out because the gas would kill you.
            Infact after opening the door, you would have to wait many days before the poison gas has dissipated because gas is attracted to an enclosed area.
            Germans are not stupid like the jews would have you believe.

          • Germans are methodical and will pursue best systematic approach especially during wartime scenario with limited resource.

            and yet the western media potray german military during WW2 as evil bumbling idiots… while the glorious noble american and european fought for justice and peace..

            meanwhile the real side who fought and destroy german military are the soviets , who destroy german military machines with great cost , so american can land and grab the headlines as saviour of europe

    • Nigel Maund

      Yes……. always the anwer to any criticism is to wheel out “anti – semite” and “remember the Holocaust!!” ………..Problem is this has become hackneyed and excessively overused to hide their own war crimes and genocide in Palestine and moreover their constant warmongering and meddling in the Middle East which they are seeking to Balkanise, neuter and control.

    There has been numerous Israeli attacks on Syrian soil in the last few months that the media fail to report. There has been nothing but empty words form Russia promising to defend Syrian Space and threatening Israel not to venture into Syrian Space. S300 S 10 000 we haven’t seen nothing yet the Israelis come and go as they please. its time to show some Russian Balls and declare the space over Syria restricted Air space. no one can fly not America, not the NATO not God himself and Not Israel in the first place. enough talk about the missles

    • wwinsti

      I see how Russia is doing this, with patience and not bellicosity. Forcing the enemies of Syria to look ridiculous (You can have those missiles, but not these?). We’ll have a small no fly zone at first, this will spread until it covers all of Syria, and we won’t even call it “a no fly zone”. A few Israeli planes will be lost, just to make the point. Spreading westward will be the final stage.

      Russia has serious Area denial Jamming systems. ..
      If they were turned on ** during last US attack,….Cruise missiles would be falling into the sea, Slamming into the mountains of Lebanon, crash into the desert East of Damascus.

      Syria has some Area denial Jamming. …I suspect it’s Iran testing it’s new Gen systems.
      Hence Why IAF keep attacking Iran/IRGC bases .
      Iran operates Counterfire battery radar in Syria,….Hezbollah even use this mobile/portable system.
      The Iranian Jamming is limited in area vs Russia which can see deep into Israel,Turkey, and burn the @ outa cruise missile to Drone.
      Iran’s jamming capability is not bad…they can isolate on US satellite signals and jam that,Aircraft. ..Drones….Iran’s learning……High Fives!
      I’m disappointed that Putin let’s Netanyahu get away with bloody murder as they say.
      Russia is still entangled with the BIS /Rothschilds Central Banking system.
      I’d like to see Putin signal Iran to bring it on.
      Iran builds their own BUK M2E,… S 300,…..Iran has SeaCobra Attack Helicopters with Iranian copy TOW missiles.
      Rumor is that Hezbollah got a SA 17 system from Syrian military.
      Hezbollah fabricates their own copy of certain Rockets and missiles.
      They could create a copy of SA 17 on track or road chassis.
      Then IAF jet wreckage litter the ground : )

      • Ewan

        Iran has SERIOUS ECM equipment – most likely Russian or Chinese in Origin. We saw it in action by the commandeering and capture of the US sentinel drone, but more significantly in the 2006 war against Israel – where they supplied Hizbollah with radio decryption equipment making it possible for the Hizb to deny the Israeli ground force invasion an inch of terrirtory by anticipating Israeli commanders actions through intercepting their radio communications. This allowed for a massive assymmetrical advantage – Hizbollah never needed to deploy more than 3000 troops in the entire battle whilst Israel mobilised 60 000 troops – and lost.

        • Brad Isherwood

          Yes…
          In 2006,…Hezbollah lacked GPS targeting .
          Idiot Israhell was broadcasting on TV live feed of IDF at road junctions near the Lebanon.
          Hezbollah was able to locate the road junctions via map and try to range in their rockets, missiles ( most IDF near Lebanon /still inside Israel were beyond long range mortar)

          They did however get some hits in .
          Several times…IDF troops waiting to go up with the armor got hit by shrapnel or direct detonation.
          Hezbollah ability to close the proximity circle to desired target has improved greatly since then.
          Israhell fears this

        • actually the number of hezbollah fighters who fought IDF never exceed 1000 , most of the 3000 are stationed in the area but the IDF never go past 2 miles into lebanon because they cant break the 1st defensive belt.

          the IDF tried to insert paratroopers BEHIND hezbollah defense lines using giant CH53 helicopter , after landing the troops the hezbollah shot one down and the whole troop insertion was cancelled.. the already inserted paratroopers have to WALK back to israeli border because the IdF HQ refuse to send another chopper to pick them.

          the IDF reserves are even worse , one IDF paratrooper reserve unit about 50 men was observed by hezbollah commandos entering a multistory building for night rest , the hezbollah team used 2 ATGM to collapse the building and causing ALL 50 israeli as KIA/WIA

          read Alaister Crooke article on Lebanon war 2006 , it is very enlightening on just how overrated is the IDF , whose current combat experience in past 3 decades are against unarmed civilians..

    • Ewan

      Russia has a specific agreement to fulfill in Syria – it might not include Israel. That however does not prevent it from “assisting” Syria in defending themselves – This is what is happening – slowly but surely. The Israelis are getting strangled without knowing it.- A long, painful death. When they open their eyes, Nasrallah will be in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv will have relocated to a Polish Ghetto alongwith the US embassy.

    they are using a very thick net of air defence……pantsir for very close defence, tor m2 for medium range and s-400 for long range. its one of the best air-defences an army could have…..their successes are a proof for that.

  • King_GeorgXIII

    That was the lesson from the 71 missiles against one target, they needed a system to add more firepower to the Cruise missile threat!

    • Merijn

      Yeah more than Twenty passed the system that is 25%……!!! 95% Destroyed is a nice Target….the Remaining 5% will come down by itself because American Missiles Suck…

      • King_GeorgXIII

        Twenty according to uncle sam! The Tor will handle the reload phase of the Syrian AA of their Panzir S1! great support unit the Tor system.

          That will be 92% of Missiles not reaching their Target next time…if you have enough of them rocket launching Vehicles…and if I have to chose were to sit in case of a scuffle: in this Cart or an F-35….I prefer the Rocket Launching automobile…that’s for sure…

        Israel dont have the capacity to sustain attacks on a large scale and over long periods of time vs Syria!…among other reasons Syrian air defense is trained to prevent it!

        • Alexander Lyapunov

          I mean, if it leads to final phase, theres really nothing Israel can do. No country no matter how sophisticated their anti-missile systems will be, can withstand thousands of rockets pouring in over them for days without break. And that’s precisely what will happen. Hezbollah has everything ready and their missiles are practially pointing at Tel-Aviv, and ready to be launched. The Choosen Ones know this and are shitting themselves. They act like a wild dog that has been cornered and biting out in desperation. But that being said, it is not the time for such escalations now. Even though im sure that missile stockpile of the Resistance is ready.
