There is also a naval version of the system that Russia plans to integrate on board its warships. Although the Pantsir-S1 will probably replace the ZSU 23-4s and 9K22s, the resilience of the latter two systems (and the viability of their modernization packages) indicates that they will remain in service for years to come. The Pantsir-S1 mounted on an 8x8 KAMAZ truck. Development of the Pantsir began in 1990 and continued after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Following years of development, the air defense system finally debuted with Russian Ground Forces in 2003.

Since the ZSUs and their missile-launching counterparts had no early warning radar capabilities, the Israeli planes could fly within striking distance of the Syrian formations and achieve total surprise. In light of their heavy losses, the Syrians withdrew most of their air defense assets, including the ZSU 57-2s and ZSU 23-4s, to protect the perimeter around Damascus. Meanwhile, as the Egyptians crossed the Suez Canal, their frontline formations outran the cover of their own air defenses. Thus, the Israeli Air Force was able to provide unhindered air support as their ground forces pushed the Egyptians back towards the Canal.
