MOSCOW, May 29. /TASS/. The rearmament of rocket artillery brigades from Smerch to upgraded Tornado-S multiple launch rocket systems will be completed by 2020, Missile and Artillery Force Chief Lieutenant-General Mikhail Matveyevsky said on Monday.
"The rearmament of all missile brigades with the modern Iskander-M missile system and rocket artillery brigades with Tornado-S large-caliber multiple launch rocket systems will be completed," the general said, speaking about plans through 2020.
The planned rearmament with Tornado-S multiple launch rocket systems is beginning in 2017, he said.
Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said earlier that the serial production of Tornado-S multiple launch rocket systems was planned to be launched in 2017.
