I am not persuaded it is unfair.
Looking at the Skyshield crew (top) with two Gunners manning a control station that receives Radar and EO/IR inputs and can respond with 2x 35mm cannons and an array of missiles, or the NASAMs crew of 11 and their sensors, missiles and controls I am not convinced that the army can't do a lot more with the PYs it has. Particularly if they were arty PYs.
I'm not really sure what point you are trying to make comparing the number of pers photographed with the two systems. And do the individuals pictured accurately reflect the numbers needed to operate the equipment next to them?

And those numbers don't take into account additional pers requirements if the system has to be manned 24/7. Most aggressors don't provide notification that they intend to attack the installation/locale that you are tasked to defend. You don't want to be at lunch or taking a shit when it hits the fan.
