The Polish Ministry of Nationwide Defence (Ministerstwo Obrony Narodowej) has issued a young for restore of 2T7M transporter/transloader autos, with a 5 September deadline for responses. The 2T7M is a modified ZIL-131 chassis configured to hold 2K12 Kub (NATO reporting title: SA-6 “Gainful”) cell surface-to-air missile system. The contractor will even be required to carry out MRO providers with the BAZ-5939 chassis for the 9T217 TZM reload automobile, which features with the 9K33 Osa (NATO reporting title SA-8 Gecko) cell surface-to-air missile system. The MND didn’t reveal the potential worth of the contract in an 8 August submit on the official EU tenders database, but it surely did state that the contract will run from 30 September 2022 to 30 June 2023.

The 2K12 Kub cell surface-to-air missile system is a Soviet low to medium-level air defence system designed to guard floor forces from air assault. “2?12” is the GRAU designation of the system. Every 2K12 battery consists of plenty of comparable tracked autos, considered one of which carries the 1S91 25 kW G/H band radar (with a variety of 75 km (47 mi)) geared up with a steady wave illuminator, along with an optical sight. The battery normally additionally contains 4 triple-missile transporter erector launchers (TELs), and 4 vans, every carrying three spare missiles and a crane. The TEL is predicated on a GM-578 chassis, whereas the 1S91 radar automobile is predicated on a GM-568 chassis, all developed and produced by MMZ.

The pretty giant missiles have an efficient vary of 4–24 km (2.5–15 miles) and an efficient altitude of fifty–14,000 m (164–45,931 ft). Prime missile pace is approx. Mach 2.8. The mixed propulsion system 9D16K included stable gas rocket motor which, when burned out, types the combustion chamber for a ramjet in a pioneering design placing this missile far forward of its contemporaries when it comes to propulsion. The design idea was for a single self-propelled 1S91 engagement radar system, with an built-in acquisition radar, controlling a gaggle of 4 2P25 sequence Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) autos, every with three 3M9 sequence missile rounds. This battery construction could be supported by a number of 2T7 transloader/transporters, carried on the ZiL-157 truck.

The 9K33 Osa is a extremely cell, low-altitude, short-range tactical surface-to-air missile system developed within the Soviet Union within the Sixties and fielded in 1972. All variations of the 9K33 characteristic all-in-one 9A33 transporter-launcher and radar autos which might detect, observe and interact plane independently or with assistance from regimental surveillance radars. The 9T217 transloader is predicated on the identical chassis because the launch automobile. It carries 12 missiles and is fitted with a crane to load them onto the launch autos. The six-wheeled transport autos BAZ-5937 are totally amphibious and air transportable. The highway vary is about 500 km. The 1S51M3-2 radar system on the 9K33 Osa TELAR obtained the NATO codename Land Roll.
