Pantsir-M is a Russian jamming-resistant naval close-in weapon system (CIWS) under development. Pantsir-M is equipped with friend or foe identification system and armed with naval version of the Pantsir's 57E6-E missiles and Hermes-K missiles. Its secondary armament are two six-barreled 30×165mm AO-18KD rotary cannons (range 5 km). Same as on Kashtan-M. Pantsir-M is fully automated and can engage up to four targets simultaneously at a range of up to 20 km and can operate as a battery of up to four modules. Pantsir-M can intercept sea skimming missiles flying as low as two meters above the surface. If a target isn't sufficiently destroyed by Pantsir's missile attack it can automatically direct its cannons against it. Pantsir-M's phased array radar, electro-optical/infrared targeting and identification system are based on that of Pantsir's 1RS2-1E.
According to Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov, Pantsir-M's destructive power is three to four times higher than Kashtan-M's.
