MOSCOW, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Combat anti-sabotage vehicles Typhoon will guard Russian Strategic Missile Forces’ formations, rearmed with thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles Yars.
These combat machines will be delivered to all reequipped missile units this year, spokesman for Russian Strategic Missile Forces Major Dmitry Andreyev told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
“Combat anti-sabotage vehicles are unique as they are armed with unmanned aerial combat vehicles and can detect the enemy at a distance of up to five kilometres,” he said.
Strategic Missile Forces are improving their combat capability to fight terrorism and are keeping all existing Russian computerized security systems on combat alert.
Combat anti-sabotage vehicles Typhoon-M passed all tests in 2012. Their delivery to missile formations started in 2013.
