moscow - Russia wants ten times intercontinental missiles this year tests that can be equipped with nuclear weapons. In addition, it also wants to prove 'future weapon types,' made the Defense Ministry said Tuesday.
In total this year for the Russian missile forces in size 150 different exercises on the program, one and a half times as many as in 2016. Last year, Russia announced test flights of a new type of intercontinental missile. The 100-tonne RS-28 could penetrate any defense system with fifteen separate nuclear warheads.
The missile forces also shoot down missiles earlier this year to test their usefulness. The missile forces are reduced to a reorganization of the army in 2008, but they have been provided with modern weapons and employability is increased by frequent exercises.
