The High Precision Complexes Holding of Rostec State Corporation plans to create a network of service and modernization centers of the Pantsir-C1 air defense missile defense complex on the territory of the purchasing countries. This will speed up the maintenance of Russian machinery and improve the efficiency of its operation.
The developed concept provides several options for organizing service centers: from stationary complexes to mobile groups for handling minor work. Corresponding negotiations are already underway with a number of countries which have the Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems in their arsenal that require after-sales service. It is also planned to involve foreign partners in maintenance and modernization of machines.
“Rostec seeks to provide its partners with the best possible conditions not only on the time of sale of domestic equipment, but also during its further operation, offering comprehensive services for the maintenance of products throughout the entire life cycle,” commented Victor Kladov, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of Rostec.
“The creation of service centers directly in the countries of operation will reduce the cost of transportation of heavy machines and the time spent on their servicing,” he added.
ZRPK (Anti-aircraft missile and gun system) Pantsir-S1 is intended for close cover of civilian and military installations, including long-range air defense systems, from all contemporary and perspective air attack weapons. The complex has been exported to several countries in the Middle East since 2009.
