MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Ten missile regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force have assumed combat duty and the highest level of alert, the Strategic Missile Force’s press office said on Tuesday.
Seven regiments armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars mobile missile systems will advance for combat patrols in the Ivanovo, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Kirov and Irkutsk Regions, the Altai Territory and the Republic of Mary El, the press office said.
"The strategic missile forces will practice moving missile systems to field positions, performing marches with the change of field positions, carrying out measures for organization of the ground, camouflaging, protecting and defending military hardware and field positions," the press office said.
Counter-sabotage units will block and destroy notional subversive groups, including with the use of counter-sabotage combat vehicles Taifun-M equipped with drones.
The missile teams will also repel a ground and air attack of an imaginary enemy and carry out simulated missile launches.
In addition, about 20 missile units are preparing to assume combat duty in field positions and over 30 protection formations will also perform missions during field marches.
Russia’s Strategic Missile Force is scheduled to hold over 100 command and staff, tactical and special exercises in 2016.
Also, the practice of snap combat readiness checks will be continued in the Russian Strategic Missile Force this year.
