THE FIRING RANGE ASHULUK (Astrakhan region), September 22 (Itar-Tass) — A unique air defence system, which was created at the joint operative military exercises between the Armed Forces of Russia and Belarus, may become a prototype of a joint air defence system of the CSTO countries, Russian Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said on Thursday.
“The military exercises at the Ashuluk firing range are unique that a multilayer air defence system was created and tested. This air defence system is made up of modern combat systems S-400, S-300, Tor, Pantsir and Buk,” the minister said after the Russian-Belarusian military exercises on Thursday.
Under the scenario of the exercises “cruise missiles, airplanes and ballistic targets of the mockup enemy were seeking” to break through this multilayer air defence system, the minister said. “Amid strong radioelectronic jams all attacks were rebuffed thanks to qualified actions of the combat teams. The air defence system created at the military exercises may turn into a prototype of a future joint CSTO air defence system,” Serdyukov underlined.
