"We can see that some countries, including the Middle East States, are showing enormous interest in this product. We are sure that Pantsir-ME, which is an adapted sea version of the famous Pantsir-S1 system, will have great market perspectives. As for today, it would be too early to speak about any agreements. The system was demonstrated just a few days ago," Kladov went on to say.

Pantsir-ME was first demonstrated abroad at the IDEX-2019 International Defense Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi. Earlier, a source from the High Precision Systems ("Vysokotochnye Kompleksy") holding company, an affiliate of Rostec, told TASS that Pantsir-ME could be mounted on any type of ships - from a missile boat with a displacement of 500 tons to an aircraft carrier.
