“I am sure that in the near future we will receive an updated missile defense system,” said the colonel on the radio of the RSN radio.
According to him, “the modernization of anti-missile systems is currently under way, which will improve their performance.”

“It (Moscow’s missile defense system) will not become obsolete for several decades. Despite this, its development continues. First of all, the modernization of its information component, our pride - the radar station Don-2Н. Secondly, a number of enterprises are creating new fire weapons of destruction, which will allow to increase the combat characteristics of the system twice, ”he said.
The colonel also noted that "in the armament of the missile defense system of Moscow and the central industrial region are currently mine-based anti-missiles," developing speeds several times faster than bullets, "for which, according to the American classification, they were called" gazelles. "
