I've always liked the idea of the Pantsir.
I mean, if you could slap RAM missile banks to the side of a CIWS I'd be all for it.
Even better if you could slap it on a modified vehicle like an MTVR.

No system is going to be infallible, and I think it's getting way too much hate for relatively isolated incidents.
In one of those videos it even looks like the battery was stowed with the system in transit.

Agree. At the end of the day it's a point defence system - it's always going to perform better as part of a modern IADS rather than when isolated, where it can be jammed into oblivion, saturated and/or picked off piecemeal.
