The LNA Pantsir-S1E air defense complex was captured by the GNA and was taken to Germany by the US
In the photo, it can be seen that the Pantsir-S1 complex being transported by Government forces under the Libyan National Agreement was in damaged condition.
The complex has been shown many times at international exhibitions, but not many people have access to details of the system. According to The Times, the exported version of the Pantsir-S1E is quite famous in the world because it is supplied to different countries, including US-allied countries such as UAE, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya. ….
The UAE version of the Pantsir-S1 is an export variant that is more or slightly different from the type of Pantsir-S the Russian army is using, but even if it is a commercial variant, careful study of the name system Russian anti-aircraft fire could still provide the United States with useful data.
What can the US exploit from Pantsir-S1E?
According to Dmitry Kornev, the editor-in-chief of MilitaryRussia.ru, the clear benefit from research into Russia’s state-of-the-art export weapons cannot be ignored. American experts cannot thoroughly study such things at the show or even at the UAE ally’s base.
Receiving this system, Americans can disassemble non-collapsible blocks to study the level of technology, to the fabrication of assemblies and components; find its holes and then use them in battle.
Even a simple study of the materials used to make some parts, as well as the quality of their manufacture, would provide useful information on Russia’s current industrial-military capabilities.
Even if they cannot study Pantsir-S1E radar, they will study the secondary machine clusters, because when they are disabled, the device will not be able to function; for example heating or air conditioning systems, ”Kornev said in addition, knowing the technology and secrets about the radio frequency as well as the communication connection of the Pantsir-S1E on the battlefield will help Turkey come up with a very effective countermeasure against them. including the ability to copy technology.
On the other hand, Mr. Kornev believes that the Americans could share the Pantsir-S1E data with their NATO allies, such as Turkey, which has had a rather tense relationship with Russia in recent years. here.
In addition, if previously unknown vulnerabilities were found on the Pantsir-S1E, they could be brought in to damage the weapon’s image on the export market.
