MOSCOW (BNS): Russia will unveil details about a new mobile short-range air defence system during Aero India 2011 in Bangalore this week.

Information about the new ultra short-range anti-aircraft missile system, based on the Strelets launcher, will be detailed out for the first time by the Kolomna-based Engineering Design Bureau, according to Ria Novosti which quoted Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation as saying in a statement.

The Strelets is a vehicle-mounted multiple launcher system developed for Russia's 9M39 Igla (NATO SA-18 'Grouse') and Igla-1 (NATO SA-16 'Gimlet') short-range surface-to-air missiles.

The launcher, when mounted on various launch platforms, can launch the Igla missiles in both single as well as in salvo mode.

Each Strelets can fire two to eight Igla missiles to shoot down aerial targets.
