Russian air-defence systems manufacturer Almaz-Antey has disclosed detail of the new export variant of its Buk-M3 (SA-11, NATO: Gadfly) surface-to-air missile (SAM) system: the 9K317E Viking system.
According to the company, the 9K317E Viking SAM system can simultaneously engage up to 36 targets, and "is designed to engage cruise missile, frontline and strategic aircraft, high-precision weapons, stealth targets, rotary-wing platforms [including hovering], and radio-emitting surface and ground targets in contested areas."
In its baseline configuration, the Viking system comprises a 9S510ME command-and-control post, target detection system, up to six 9S36ME radars, up to six 9A317ME transport-erector launchers (TELs), up to 12 9A316 self-propelled launchers, and 9M317ME interceptor.
The 9K317E interceptor system can engage combat aircraft at a distance of 60 km, helicopters <60 km, stealth aircraft <40 km, tactical ballistic missiles <25 km, cruise missiles <20 km, ground and surface radar-emitting targets <15 km, and hovering helicopters <12 km.
The 9A317ME TEL is armed with six interceptors, while the 9A316ME self-propelled launcher carries 12 interceptors. The whole system has a reaction time of no more than 10─12 seconds and a combat readiness time of 5─10 minutes, Almaz-Antey source told Jane's .

Russia is offering the export variant of the Buk-M3 air defense system called ‘Viking’ to China
Russian Latest Viking Air Defense System Offered to China
By Tamir Eshel
Russia is offering an export variant of the Buk-M3 air defense system called ‘Viking’ to China. The Buk-M3 surface-to-air missile system was recently accepted for service in the Russian Army. The weapon system is a follow-up of medium-range air defense missile systems (known as Buk-M2E – SA-17) is designed to protect troops and infrastructure facilities against modern and future air attack weapons amid jamming and counter-fire.
Compared to the Buk-M2E predecessor, the Viking’s firing range has increased by almost 1.5 times to 65 km. The system can engage six targets simultaneously (meaning half of the missiles carried on the Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) can seek a different target simultaneously) relying on its active guidance. Using the more compact 9K317M interceptor and TEL configuration the missile capacity of a firing unit comprised of two launch vehicles – one carries the radar and six missiles in sealed canister-launchers. The second carry 12 missiles in two pods that can be directed to their targets from the other vehicle’s radar. That makes a total of 18 ready to launch missiles. According to the manufacturer, the system effectively engages aerial targets of all types, including aircraft, precision-guided weapons, cruise missiles, and tactical ballistic missiles, over the ground and sea.
The system uses radio-electronic and thermal guidance (operable in weather, day and night), the can be guided independently or under command guidance from the launcher, or operate the two methods simultaneously.
