"Arctic military equipment will participate in the parade for the first time. The general public will for the first time be able to see such air defense weapons as Tor-M2DT and missile, artillery system Pantsir-SA and support vehicles," Salyukov said during the first training of forces selected for the parade.

"Also, we may present upgraded configurations of the well-known models of main battle tanks, possibly, T-72B3M," Salyukov said, adding that the military equipment he mentioned was capable of maintaining Russia’s security in the rigorous Arctic climate in rugged roadless terrain far away from logistic facilities.

The air defense system Tor-M2 is meant for protection from enemy aircraft and missiles at the division level. It is capable of providing defense for ground forces from strikes by anti-radar and cruise missiles, remote-controlled aircraft, glide bombs, planes and helicopters. Under a contract between the electro-mechanical plant Kupol in Izhevsk and the machine-building corporation Vityaz, published on the government purchases website, research and design work for upgrading and adjusting Tor-M2 for the Arctic conditions are to be carried out in 2015-2020. The system will be installed on the articulated tracked chassis DT-30PM-T1.

The Tor-M2 is an upgraded version of the Tor-M1 short-range air defense missile system. The TOR-M2/M2E is designed by the Russian Defense Company Almaz-Antey. The TOR-M2 was presented for the first time to the public during the Moscow Air Show, MAKS in 2007.

The Tor-M2 can simultaneously engage up to 10 targets with a range of 12 km and at altitudes from 10m to 1,000 m.

The Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound NATO code name) is an air defense missile-gun system designed to protect vital small-size and big military areas, industrial targets and land forces units and reinforced the air defense units responsible for the protection of troops and military installations against precision-guided air attack from low and extreme low altitudes.

The armament of Pantsir-S1 consists of twelve 57E6 surface-to-air guided missiles and two 2A38M30-millimetre automatic guns developed from the two-barreled 30mm GSh-30 gun. It is provided with multi-range radar capable of detecting aerial targets with effective surface of dispersion of up to 2-3 square meters at a distance of more than 30 kilometers and track them down from a distance of over 24 kilometers.
