Russia has successfully test fired a new anti-ballistic missile. The test took place at Sary Shagan testing range in central Kazakhstan, the Defense Ministry said on Tuesday (July 2).
However the type of missile and characteristics has not been revealed by the Russian Army but they said only that, its launcher is already in service.
The “new interceptor missile… had proven its characteristics and successfully completed its task by striking the target,” said Pavel Kuzmin, spokesperson for the air defense and anti-ballistic command. 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 its trials and went into production for the troops.
