Every year at the Sary-Shagan test site, 1-2 test launches of anti-missile missiles in service are held to confirm their tactical and technical characteristics. Over the next two to three years, a new generation anti-missile missile, which is being created in Russia, will be tested there,said Tagiyev on Echo of Moscow.
According to him, “the number of launches on Sary-Shagan will increase several times in the coming years, including due to the testing of a new product.”
Tagiyev noted that the Russian means of interception, which are already in service, are among the best in the world.
“Suffice it to say that its (anti-missile) flight speed is at least 3 km / s, which exceeds the speed of the bullet several times,” the colonel added.
