The '''Tor missile system''' (Russian: "Тор"; English: torus<sup>[1]</sup>) 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 short-range ballistic threats (Anti-Munitions). Originally developed by the Soviet Union under the GRAU designation '''9K330''', the system is commonly known by its NATO reporting name, '''SA-15 "Gauntlet"'''. A navalized variant was developed under the name '''3K95 "Kinzhal"''', also known as the '''SA-N-9 "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<sup>[2]</sup> day and night, in bad weather and jamming situation.<sup>[3]</sup> Moving with the troops, Tor can detect targets itself on the move, for shooting need a short stop. It is used by the Alliance of Nations and the [[Axis of Empires]]

The Tor missile system (Russian: "Тор"; English: torus ) 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 short-range ballistic threats (Anti-Munitions). Originally developed by the Soviet Union under the GRAU designation 9K330, the system is commonly known by its NATO reporting name, SA-15 "Gauntlet". A navalized variant was developed under the name 3K95 "Kinzhal", also known as the SA-N-9 "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[2] day and night, in bad weather and jamming situation. Moving with the troops, Tor can detect targets itself on the move, for shooting need a short stop. It is used by the Alliance of Nations and the Axis of Empires.
