    WHY will they shoot? After all, what is needed is a goal, or is it just so popular in the sky?

      on reactive targets "Saman


      In general, I really do not like it when they mix like this, constantly. 300 combat launches of Tor-M1 air defense systems and Igla MANPADS.
      But in reality, who knows how, maybe there will be 5 launches from Thor, and the old Needle 295? And so in everything, the main thing is that there should be more numbers, I think that they should be divided for greater objectivity.
