MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. A new automated system of the Russian Strategic Missile Force’s combat control will help retarget intercontinental ballistic missiles ‘instantly’ before their launch, a source in Russia’s General Staff told TASS on Thursday.
Strategic Missile Force Commander Sergey Karakayev said on Wednesday the troops had received a new combat control system to promptly retarget missiles. The system will start to be put into operation from next year, he added.
"The talk is about retargeting Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles immediately before their launch when a need arises suddenly to deliver a strike against other unplanned targets due to a sharp change in the situation. In this case, the new control system will enter new target coordinates into a missile in a remote control mode instantly to destroy the targets," the source said.
If a missile has been launched, it can’t be retargeted, the source said. Today not a single nuclear power has such technology, the source added.
