The press service of the Central Military District reported that during the exercise, the OTRK crews fulfilled the standard for transferring the complex to a combat position and overloading missiles, and also carried out a combat launch of a missile at a target imitating a critically important object of a simulated enemy. The target was reportedly destroyed.
