Tor-M2E air-navigation allows 4 channel 4 rocket attacks leading 4 goals at the same time, ultra-fast response time is only 7 seconds, air-to-air missile launcher 9M331 high vertical with 10km range, shot 16km distance, speed 1km/s.
Based on a MZKT-6922 can also be used in a variation of air defense systems Buk-M2E medium-range.
The gas component Buk-M2E system resource use based on a MZKT-6922. The system is capable of destroying targets up to 30km high-altitude, long-range 70km, the lower the probability is very high goals.
MZKT-6922 chassis is also used as the basis for anti-aircraft missile system Osa-1T 9K33-1T - upgraded variant of 9K33 Osa system produced by the Soviet Union, made by companies Tetraedr of Belarus. The system is equipped with ammunition missile with a range of 20km 9M33M3-1, additional camera channels aiming Day / Night OES-1T.
