42S6 Morfey or Morfei (Морфей after the god of dreams in Greek mythology Morpheus) with missile 9M338K or RZV-MD based and derived from Tor-M2, is a short range air defense system currently being developed for the Russian Armed Forces.[1] It is a mobile system with a range of 5 km (3 mi). Development has been ongoing since 2007 and it is supposed to be introduced in 2015.[2] It is reported to feature an omnidirectional cupola-type radar [3] with Active electronically scanned array.[4] It is being developed by Almaz-Antey.[1]

  • This system is designated as a short-range air defense system to protect the S-400 from various threats at their terminal phases, and will also act together with the S-350E as a supplement to the SA-21 Growler. Together, these systems form part of the Aerospace Defence Forces.[5]
  • Development of Morfey started in 2007. It was planned to be introduced in 2013, however this was delayed until at least 2015.[6][7][8][9] The missile system consists of an omnidirectional 29YA6 radar, infrared sensors and 36 missiles.[10][5] The missiles have up to 10 km range and an altitude of up to 3500 m.[5][11]
