the Tor-M1 missile system is an all-weather low to medium altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system designed for engaging airplanes, helicopters, cruise missiles, precision guided munitions, unmanned aerial vehicles and ballistic targets.

The system is commonly known by NATO as the, SA-15 "Gauntlet". Tor was also the first air defence system in the world designed from the start to shoot down precision guided weapons like the AGM-86 ALCM.

The missile used on the Tor-M1 is the 9M330 model
Weighing in at 368 lbs. the 9M330 missile is 11.5 feet long, carries a 33 lbs. warhead and has a max speed of around Mach 2.8

Utilizing command guidance and radar controlled proximity fuzes the 9M330 missiles can maneuver at up to 30 G's and engage targets flying at up to Mach 2.

Cold launched the missiles are propelled out of the vehicle before the solid fuel rocket motor fires and the gas-dynamic maneuvering system turns them toward their target.
The Tor-M1 can also fire against surface targets.

Each missile is a sealed round stored in two groups of four
engagement range is from 1 to 9.5 miles with minimum altitude varying between 35 to 20,000 feet

Arranged in a similar fashion to the previous 9K33 Osa and 9K22 Tunguska... the Tors TLAR features a turret with a top mounted target acquisition radar and frontal tracking radar with 8 ready-to-fire missiles stored vertically between the two radars
The target acquisition radar is a 3D F band pulse doppler radar, equipped with a truncated parabolic antenna which provides a maximum detection range of 16 miles.
For example... an F-15 at an altitude of 3.7 miles has a detection probability of 0.8 at this range.
The electronic heart of the system is a digital fire control system which allows detection of up to 48 targets and the tracking of ten at any one time, and integrates IFF functionality the IFF antenna being mounted above the search radar.

The target engagement radar is a G band/H band-pulse doppler radar with an electronically scanned phased-array antenna.

Russia operates around 330~ Tor-M1 systems.
