    The SAM system is capable of operating both independently and as part of an air defence group.

    For better survivability, the Buk-M2E uses unique target engagement modes and modern methods of protection against active and passive jamming, as well as precision-guided weapons.

    • Max target detection range using SAM’s equipment, km: up to 150
    • Engagement envelope, km:
      – max range: 45
      – min range: 3
      – altitude: 0,015 – 25
    • Number of targets engaged simultaneously by a complete SAM system: up to 24
    • Max target speed, m/s: 1200
    • Max target load factor: 12
    Its combat assets mounted on cross-country wheeled MZKT chassis.

    This is an all-weather system operating in different climatic zones at temperatures ranging from -50 to +50°C, at humidity of up to 98%. The crew compartments are equipped with air conditioning and heating units.

    The Lybian border is hot at this moment and it was a typical Algerian way to warn those who have ill attention against her...A war game under the name “Tempest” was conducted the past few days as a warning...
