MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Large-scale drills of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) that embraced more than 20 regions - from the Tula to Irkutsk regions - have ended, Defense Ministry’s spokesman for RVSN Colonel Igor Yegorov said on Monday.
"RVSN units have had more than 600 combat drills, including the study of survivability of divisions armed with the Topol, Topol-M and Yars land-based mobile missile systems in various combat conditions," Yegorov said.
The RVSN spokesman said previously that the drill scenario included planting of mines by simulated enemy’s sabotage groups on the combat patrolling route sections and using toxic agents in the field. Engineer troops, radiological, chemical and biological defence forces, as well as anti-sabotage units have been engaged in the exercises, he said. The troops have used the RKhM-4 chemical reconnaissance vehicles and drones during the maneuvers.
