The Tor-M2E anti-aircraft missile system is designed for air defense of ground forces units during combat operations and in concentration areas, protection of command posts, communication centers, radio facilities, bridges, airfields, etc.
The missile system is a further development of the well-known 9K331 Tor-M1 complex. Compared to its predecessor, the Tor-M2E is characterized by increased effectiveness in repelling massive attacks in conditions of intensive fire and electronic countermeasures.
