The unprecedented technological development in the field of weapons and ammunition used in the airspace, at low and very low altitudes, is one of the major challenges that the traditional air defence systems have to face. To this end, the military specialists of the modern armies pay special attention to the new types of air threats and seek solutions to maintain a balanced situation in the field of airspace security. In this regard, a number of transformations of the VSHORAD, SHORAD air

The technical and tactical solutions mainly refer to increasing the capabilities of the weapons and ammunition systems, which can be used in achieving the specific algorithm of countering an air threat by applying certain specific methods, TEWA (Threat Evaluation and Weapons Allocation). This scientific approach highlights the possibilities of taking short and very short range air action as a starting point in the current development of the air defence systems, which by applying the operational art can temporarily compensate for the technological gap between the air threats and the air defence response.
