Russia’s SMF to Take Delivery of New Military Equipment
The Russian Strategic Missile Forces will receive 29 units of new military equipment by the end of the year. This statement was made by Col. Igor Egorov, a spokesperson of the Defence Ministry for the Strategic Missile Forces.
“The delivery of 29 modern units of weaponry, as well as military and special equipment, is planned during the final stage of 2014,” Mr. Egorov pointed out, adding that the delivery will include intercontinental ballistic missiles and launchers.
According to the spokesman, the supplies of weapons, military and special equipment to the Strategic Missile Forces will make it possible to rearm three Yars missile battalions.
It should be noted that the RS-24 missile was developed on the basis of scientific, technical and technological solutions implemented in the Topol-M complex, which significantly reduces the time and cost of its production.
