Ukrainian artillery destroyed Russian TOR surface-to-air missile system in Zaporizhzhia region

Ukrainian artillery has destroyed a Russian Tor surface-to-air missile system in the Zaporizhzhia region.

The footage, released by the Ukrainian military, shows a Russian Tor missile air defense system going up in smoke after a direct hit from a guided missile.

The Ukraine Weapons Tracker OSINT group reported that a Russian 9A331M TLAR (a Transporter Launcher and Radar) of the 9K332 Tor-M2 air defense system was destroyed by Ukrainian high-precision strikes.

The Tor (NATO: SA-15 Gauntlet) is a tracked self-contained surface-to-air missile system designed to provide short-range defense against fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and cruise missiles. The vehicle has two radars, one for target acquisition and another for tracking and engagement, and can be loaded with up to eight command-guided missiles at a time.

The Tor is one of the few Russian-made short-range SAM systems with high effectiveness against cruise missiles and precision-guided munitions.
