Rostec State Corporation has prepared the Gibka-S anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) for serial production. In the publication of the information and consulting agency Defense Express, the complex was compared with the Polish Poprad air defense system.

"In general terms, the Russian Gibka-S complex can be called an analogue of the Polish short-range Poprad air defense system," Defense Express writes. The publication notes that "Flex-C" and Poprad have a similar architecture. The vehicles received portable anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS) mounted on an automobile chassis. The armored car also carries fire control equipment.

Earlier, the industrial director of the cluster of armaments, ammunition and special chemicals of the Rostec State Corporation, Bekhan Ozdoev, announced the readiness of the Gibka-S air defense system for serial production. The complex was tested in 2019.

The basis of the ZRK "Gibka-S" is the complex of guided weapons "Gibka", which was adopted in 2006. The self-propelled complex on the VPK-233116 chassis can use the Igla-S and Willow MANPADS. The SAM includes anti-aircraft gunners' squad cars and a platoon commander's command and reconnaissance vehicle.

In August, the Izvestia newspaper reported that the Russian military would receive the Verba MANPADS. This complex works on the principle of "shot and forgot". The ammunition of the complex received a homing head operating in the infrared and optical range.

Цитата, q
«В общий чертах российский комплекс "Гибка-С" можно назвать аналогом польского ЗРК малой дальности Poprad», — пишет Defence Express.
А польский комплекс Poprad можно назвать аналогом американского ЗРК Avenger. И что с того? В мире уже куча ЗРК на автомобильном шасси с ракетами от ПЗРК, а в Defence Express только Poprad знают?
