MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The Southern Military District is receiving newest anti-aircraft missile systems Tor-M2U, district spokesman Oleg Kochetkov told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The delivery of Tor-M2U anti-aircraft missile systems has begun to air defense units in the Volgograd region. The systems will replace outdated Osa. The replacement will be complete in 2012,” Kochetkov said.
