SOCHI, November 27. /ITAR-TASS/. President Vladimir Putin announced plans to supply 22 new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) to the Russian Strategic Missile Forces in 2014.
He also stressed the need to pay more attention to the development of the Forces’ technical capabilities.
“Life goes on and we need to provide our troops with new generations of hardware,” the president said on Wednesday, November 27, opening the first in a series of meetings on state defense contracts, which focused on the present and future of the Strategic Missile Forces in Russia.
He said the Strategic Missile Forces were already adopting new mobile and silo-based missile systems. This year two missile regiments have been armed with mobile strategic missile systems.
“We plan to supply an additional 22 land-based ICBMs to the Strategic Missile Forces next year. We intend to continue to develop the main component of the strategic nuclear forces on a priority basis,” Putin said.
He noted that the Missile Forces should be “not only strong but also up-to-date in terms of piercing any missile defense today and in the future.
