The Pantsir-M is based on the land based Pantsir-S1, but has a different artillery system- as can be seen on the above pictures, including two GSh-6-30K / AO-18KD 30mm six-barrel guns as found on the Kasthtan CIWS. Pantsir-M also comes with an additional radar system, separate from the one fitted ontop of the turret itself.

The land based Pantsir-S1, produced by Russia's KBP is a gun-missile system combining a wheeled vehicle mounting a fire-control radar and electro-optical sensor, two 30-mm cannons and up to 12 57E6 radio-command guided short-range missiles, and is designed to take on a variety of targets flying at low altitudes.

According to industry sources, naval variants of the Pantsir and TOR-M2 short-range air defense systems should enter service with the Russian Navy in about two years. “The Defense Ministry showed great interest in the naval variant of the Pantsir. It has been decided that several destroyers and other large warships will be modernized to accommodate the system,” said Dmitry Konoplev, managing director of the KBP Instrument Design Bureau.

The Pantsir-S1 is not the first Russian land based air defense system to be adapted for naval applications.During IMDS 2013 Navy Recognition learned that Russian Defense Company Almaz-Antey is also working on a naval version of its Tor-M2 short-range air defense missile system with tests to begin in the next couple of years.

The land based Tor-M2 / M2E is designed to attack aircraft, helicopters, aerodynamic UAVs, guided missiles and other components of high precision weapons flying at medium, low and extremely low altitudes in adverse air and jamming environment.
