I think this is Pantsir S2. The radar is different of S1 version. LINK

The description mentions that Meng will include parts for four different versions. Since the title shows S1 and the model is an S2, I suspect Meng is including parts to built both, which is pretty typical for them.

There is no such official name "Pantsir S2". This is mistakenly picked up by a multitude of sources. Moreover, it is replicated even by the near-military technical sources of information. The correct name of the fact that the pictures - "Pantsir S1 with the new SOTc (Systema Obnaruzheniya i Tceleukazaniya/detection and targeting system)". The more updated version of the Pantsir is called the "Pantsir SM", but it is still in the prototypes.

Would it be correct to say the Meng version of Pansir is more modern than the Trumpeter version? The antennae is different between teh two manufacturer's kits.
