MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Force has received 91 air-launched missiles in 2017 and another 109 such items will be delivered by the end of the year, First Deputy CEO of Vympel State Machine-Building Design Bureau Nikolai Tarasov said in an interview with the TV Channel Rossiya-24 on Friday.
"The enterprise has manufactured and delivered 91 medium-range air-to-air missiles to the Aerospace Force in 2017. The missiles have passed all kinds of tests stipulated by the technical documentation and the terms of state contracts and have been accepted by the military," he said on the single military output acceptance day.
"The delivery of another 109 items of this type is planned until the end of the year," Tarasov said.
These missiles can be launched from all types of aircraft of the MiG and Su family and are designed to hit aerial targets at any time of the day or night, at all angles, amid the terrestrial and water surface, including a multiple-launch "fire-and-forget" capability.
