Moscow has successfully tested its new interceptor missile in a desert in Central Asia as the nation’s army prepares to receive next-generation S-500 Prometey air defense systems.
The test took place at Sary Shagan testing range in central Kazakhstan, the Defense Ministry said on Tuesday. The military did not specify what type of missile was used, saying only that its launcher is already in service.
The army remained tight-lipped about the details of the tests but mentioned earlier that Russia’s next-generation long-range air defense missile system S-500 Prometey (Prometheus) had completed most of its trials and went into production for the troops.
