This is coolbert:

Here with the U.S. Army answer to the Russian Pantsir!

IM-SHORAD. Short-range-air-defense.

"IM-SHORAD is an Air Defense Artillery capability which moves and maneuvers in direct support of Brigade Combat Teams (BCT) to destroy, neutralize or deter low altitude aerial threats."

The total package. One 30 mm auto-cannon. Four Stinger missiles. Two Hellfire missiles. Organic radar. Mobile. Ready to go now. Impressive.

See additionally this You Tube video:

IM-SHORAD to be employed against enemy attack helicopters, drones, and low-flying close-air support fixed-wing aircraft. Incorporation of the Hellfire missiles seems to be strange? Hellfire as far as I know not an air defense weapon. Hellfire normally used in the air-ground attack mode.
