The SWS2 is a combination of a 35mm revolver cannon and a block of four surface-to-air missiles, mounted on a remote-controlled turret that sits atop an 8x8 VN1 armored platform. The 23-ton vehicle is reportedly constructed using fully-welded light armor, providing protection from small arms fire and shell splinters.
According to IHS Janes.com, the turret can rotate a full 360 degrees, with the 35mm cannon and the SAMs able to elevate from —2° to 85° and from —5° to 70°. The device will carry 400 rounds of high-explosive incendiary (HEI) 35 mm ammunition that can reach aircrafts flying at a distance of 4,000 meters and maximum altitude of 3,000 meters. The HEI ammunition, reportedly optimized for smaller targets such as drones, can also be fitted with tracer and semi-armor piercing capability.
The SAMs range is not yet specified. It is likely that the vehicle will carry only one load of SAMs, making it dependent on resupply.
According to reports, the machine is currently available for export.
