During IMDS 2013 naval defence exhibition held recently in St Petersburg, 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.
