AKA: 9K40;9K40M;9M38M2;Grizzly;SA-17;Ural. Status: Operational 1997. Payload: 70 kg (154 lb). Gross mass: 710 kg (1,560 lb). Height: 5.55 m (18.20 ft). Diameter: 0.40 m (1.31 ft). Span: 1.10 m (3.60 ft).
In 1994-1997 the VPK issued several resolutions calling for development of a universal multimodal surface-to-air missile complex for use by the PVO, PRO, and coastal defence units. This was the Buk-M1-2, developed by NIIP Tikhomirov, using the ZAO Krot-M developed by the Ulyanovsk Machine Works. This was capable of intercepting highly manoeuvrable tactical and strategic aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, naval vessels, fixed land targets, and air-to-surface missiles, even under intense jamming and in the face of enemy countermeasures. The system would provide six flight-guidance beams for the missiles simultaneously, guaranteeing the destruction of any target within range. The Buk-M1-2 consisted of: a KP command post vehicle; the 50Ts search/track/guidance station; six SOU self-propelled missile launchers, each with 4 missiles on launch rails and 4 reloads on transport rails); three reloading vehicles; and the 9M317 surface-to-air missile. The system used a new-concept guidance system, which realistic tests showed to be effective against the entire range of intended targets.
Maximum target speed 3600 kph. 4 missiles per launcher. 5 minutes to set up after arrival or to depart after launch.
Radars: 9S117M1 Kupol-2 Snow Drift target acquisition radar, range 100 km. 9S35M2 Fire Dome target tracking radar, H/I band, range 120 km. Maximum speed: 4320km/hr. 15 m minimum altitude.
