One shot - one goal!

Russia is a very hospitable country. We are always glad to tourists, investors, just not indifferent, but if all of a sudden, we have the most polite and at the same time the most effective army in the world. As it says: "Whoever comes to us with a sword will die by the sword." Today, we will visit the once very secret factory, which throughout its history has lived and continues to work so that we always see only the peaceful sky above our heads. Meet, JSC Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol, he is the manufacturer of the world-famous short-range anti-aircraft missile systems of the Osa and Thor families.

How was born one of the largest and most important factories in our country? In Izhevsk, not far from Izhevsk Pond, a garment factory was built from 1954, which our military leadership really liked. And how else, because Western partners have always tried to keep us in good shape. Moreover, by the beginning of the 60s it became obvious that our country just needed to have specialized anti-aircraft weapons to combat low-flying targets.So, June 20, 1957 (this day is considered the official birthday of the plant) Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 698-339 ordered that this garment factory under construction be converted into an air-to-air missile guidance equipment manufacturing plant, giving it the name " Plant No. 444 of the Council of National Economy of the Udmurt Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic.

The first workshops of the plant were built and equipped in 1958. And then the first task arrived - to master the mass production of control units K5I-1 (the head of semi-active radio guidance of an air-to-air type K5M missile) for anti-aircraft missiles. The first installation batch of K5I-1 blocks in an amount of 15 pieces was delivered to the customer on December 31, 1958. And next year, the volumes have already increased by several times, 1904 such products were released. K5I-1 blocks were produced here until 1961. October 31, 1957 the company was renamed the "Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant" (IEMZ).
3. The first product of the plant - block K5I-1. The air-to-air missile with the K-5M radio command command system (RS-2U) was put into service in 1957. These RS-2Us could be used against bombers flying at speeds up to 1600 km / h, at altitudes up to 16.5 km and at a distance from the fighter from 1.5 to 3.5 km.The probability of hitting a target with a volley of 4 missiles was 80-90%. About a third of all RS-2U and RS- "U" missiles had a "stuffing" made at IEMZ.

In 1960, the production of telemetry equipment for anti-aircraft missiles was mastered. A little later, in the 61st, Plant No. 444 was ordered to begin production of several elements of the Krug troop anti-aircraft missile system. It is important to note that the Krug air defense system ((GRAU index - 2Q11, according to NATO classification, SA-4 Ganef). It was adopted in 1965) is the first domestic mobile anti-aircraft missile system for the Ground Forces. The “Circle” air defense missile system was developed by the team of the Research and Development Electromechanical Institute (NIEMI) under the leadership of Chief Designer Veniamin Pavlovich Efremov. To carry out these works, we had to increase the staff, expand production capacity and build another shop. At this rate, the plant is becoming one of the city-forming for Izhevsk.

In the second half of the sixties and the beginning of the seventies, the development of the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant received a new impetus.The company was given a task to produce almost all the electronics of the Osa anti-aircraft missile system, both the missile and its ground part. This was the result of a change of tactics in the military world. The aircraft of a potential enemy began to descend to low and ultra-low altitudes, where heavy missiles such as the Krug, could not reach them. Also appeared guided missiles "air-to-surface", which could be launched from aircraft that are outside the range of the military air defense system. Therefore, a long-range air defense system against such missiles led to the premature consumption of ammunition and, as a result, to a breakthrough of the air defense system. It was to neutralize these threats that fundamentally different complexes were required, possessing higher fire performance than the Circle, while having a lower lower limit of use. Here is our "Wasp" and has become an urgent replacement. Due to this, two more workshops appeared. Based on the design of the Osa-AKM air defense missile system, the Saman-M1 target complex was created, designed to launch training targets during training firing anti-aircraft missiles. And for the next 20 years about 1,800 products of the BM Osr and its modifications were released.
five.The “Osa” air defense missile system (GRAU index - 9K33, according to the classification of the US and NATO defense ministries: SA-8 Gecko (“Gecko”)) before the main passages of the plant.

The “Osa” air defense system was adopted on October 4, 1971. The complex is equipped with four 9M33 anti-aircraft missiles, the Osa-AK modification has 6 9M33M2 missiles, and the Osa-AKM version has 6 9M33M3 missiles.
The complex includes:
• combat vehicle (BM) 9A33BM4;
• transport-loading vehicle 9T217BM2 for 12 missiles;
• 9M33M3 anti-aircraft missile;
• 9V242-1 automated test mobile test machine;
• adjustment machine 9В914Н;
• machine maintenance 9V21ON;
• ground equipment set 9F16M2.

A new impetus to the plant appeared thanks to the creation in 1981 of the first prototype of the Torah. The Tor system (GRAU index - 9K330, according to the classification of the United States and NATO - SA-15 Gauntlet ("Gauntlet")) was created as a response to the emergence of new means of air attack. In addition to solving the traditional task of combating manned aircraft, now the military air defense systems should have ensured the destruction of such modern means of destruction as air-to-surface missiles, planning walleue-type bombs, and also at that time still promising EHVs — cruise missiles like ALCM, ASALM and Tomahawkreconnaissance and shock remotely piloted aircraft type BGM-34C. Special attention was paid to ensuring the possibility of combating anti-radar missiles such as Shraik and HARM. Starting from the mid-eighties, the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant launched production of several modifications of the “Thor” complex.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the plant, shortly before the Kupol name, had to look for ways to survive and start developing civilian products. Already in 1992 IEMZ released the first batch of equipment for the oil industry. Later, the spectrum of non-military products was expanded with climatic equipment, first of all, with heating systems, special equipment for the nuclear industry, etc. And today, the plant does not forget this topic at all.

In 2002, the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant became part of the VKO Almaz-Antey concern, which allowed it to re-raise its head, and as a result, create a new Tor-M2 air defense system and its modifications. So, in 2008, state tests of the Tor-M2U air defense system were completed and the production of the first series of Tor-M2K air defense missile systems began, and in 2015, mass production of the Tor-M2 air defense missile system began.Since 2017, the first ZRK products were manufactured for use in the Far North.

As is known, the Russian air defense system is considered to be echeloned: on the distant approaches of the enemy’s air, missiles of the S-400 missile are encountered, and if someone succeeds in overcoming their barrier, then Buk’s medium-range complexes will come into play. Our “Thors” has a special mission, to beat the enemy at extremely low altitudes. And you know, the chance to survive a little, if hit on the fly. As I said representatives of the plant, one shot - one goal!

The Top 2 M2 anti-aircraft missile system was adopted by our country in 2012, or rather its M2U version. He can fire at the same time four targets (while monitoring immediately 48) with four missiles, that is, to solve tasks that were previously solved by two Tor-M1 complexes. This complex is distinguished by high automation of work, and the calculation of the combat vehicle consists of only two people, the commander and the operator. Usually, the all-weather Tor M2 air defense system is deployed within 3 minutes and is capable of striking aerodynamic targets flying at a speed of up to 700 m / s at a distance of 1–12 km at altitudes from 100 meters to 10 km. However, he is able to fire on the move without stopping, which allows you to protect equipment on the march.
Let me remind you that "Thor" is not a warrior in the field. For example, the Tor-M2E air defense system includes:
Combat weapons:
combat vehicle (BM) 9A331MK (on a wheeled chassis or BM 9A331MU (on a tracked chassis);
9M334 anti-aircraft missile module (ZRM) with four 9M331 anti-aircraft missiles.
Technical means:
transport-charging machine (TZM) 9T244;
transport vehicle 9T245;
machine maintenance (battery MTO) 9V887M2K;
machine maintenance (regimental logistics) 9V887-1M2K;
machine group set of spare parts and tools 9F399-1M2K;
set of rigging equipment 9F116;
trainer operators of combat vehicles;
maintenance workshop MTO-AG3M1.
In addition, the mobile unified battery command center (BKP) 9S737MK can be supplied with the complex. The BKP 9S737MK manages the group actions of the BM battery, communicates with the higher and middle echelons of the air defense.

We also have a Tor-M2 in the KM modification in our stores. It is designed in a modular design and can be placed on different types of chassis. In just 10 minutes, such an autonomous combat module can be installed by a crane on any platform suitable for weight and size: the roof of a house, the deck of a ship, a crawler or vehicle chassis, or a trailer. The main condition is that the platform should have a lifting capacity of at least 20 tons. By the way, in September 2016, the autonomous combat module of the Tor-M2KM air defense system carried out successful firing at various types of air targets from the frigate Admiral Grigorovich, which was marching in the open sea at a speed of eight knots.By the way, these were the world's first successful firing of ground-based air defense systems from a warship.

Why exactly is the name "Thor"? It turns out that this is not at all a tribute and honor to the Scandinavian god of thunder and storm, and our domestic military practice to give names of combat vehicles to Gerald figures similar to fighting machines (there is also the Kubr air defense system (the export name is Kvadrat)) .d.) The fact is that the area of ​​destruction of such an air defense missile system in the air is very similar to a geometric body, similar to a donut, a toroid figure, hence the name.

The Tor-M2DT air defense system was developed in 2016. First presented to the general public at the military parade of Victory on Red Square on May 9, 2017. He is a version of the standard army complex "Tor-M2", placed on a two-link transporter of all-terrain DT-30PM. These air defense systems are capable of simultaneously firing at four air targets attacking from different directions. These complexes have a unique permeability, can overcome ditches, even swim, do not lose their performance at 50 degrees of frost (a similar temperature with only a plus for them is also the norm). The complex includes 16 vertical-launch anti-aircraft missiles with a range of damage up to 12 km and an altitude range of up to 10 thousand meters. You can relax - there are no analogues in the world!
