Syria is getting Russian air-defense system

Today Syria is getting the most modern air defense system Pantsyr-S1.
      Today the Syrian delegation has arrived to Tula, where the system is produced, to take its order. The Pantsyr-S1 is self-propelled short-range missile air defense system.
      United Arab Emirates funded the development of the system and were the first to make an order. At the moment all the contracts are for the sale of 64 Pantsyr units for about USD 2,5 billion, the sum can reach soon USD 5 billion.
      Syria was reported earlier to have made the order for 36 units, UAE -50 units, Alger-38 units. The Russian armed forces will get the first Pantsyr S1 in 2009, two more in 2009.
