    Brazil might buy Russian-made the Pantsir-S1 air defense systems in 2016.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Brazil is planning to sign a contract with Russia in 2016 on the purchase of three advanced Pantsir-S1 air defense systems, Ambassador to Russia Jose Vallim Guerreiro said on Tuesday.

    "As far as I know, a contract on delivery of three [Pantsir-S1] systems, worth around $500 million, could be signed in 2016," the diplomat told RIA Novosti.

    The Pantsir-S1 (NATO reporting name SA-22 Greyhound), is a short-to-medium range surface-to-air missile/gun system that first entered service with the Russian army in 2012.
