MWH-7204 1/72 Tunguska 2S6M Russian Modern Low Level Air Defense System model kit

Tunguska is a gun/missile system for low-level air defence. The system was designed by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau in Tula, Russia and is manufactured by the Ulyanovsk Mechanical Plant, Ulyanovsk, Russia. It can engage targets while stationary and on the move, using missiles for long-range targets and guns for close-in defence. It is designed for defence against both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters and can also fire on ground targets.
Tunguska is in service with the Russian army and has also entered service with the Indian Army.
Armament
The Tunguska vehicle carries eight 9M311-M1 surface-to-air missiles. The missile (NATO designation SA-19 Grison) has semi-automatic radar command to line-of-sight guidance, weighs 40 kg with a 9 kg warhead. It is 2.5 m long with a diameter of 1.7 m and wing span of 2.2 m. The missile's maximum speed is 900 metres/sec and can engage targets travelling at speeds up to 500 metres/sec.
