MOSCOW, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 50 Topol-M and Yars trainers were put into service in the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces in 2011, Forces spokesman Vadim Koval told Itar-Tass on Friday.

He said the trainers were installed in the Teikovo rocket division in the Ivanovo region. The division has two Topol-M regiments and one Yars regiment on combat duty. The Defense Ministry plans that about 30 road-mobile launchers Topol-M and Yars will be on duty in Teikovo by the end of this year.
