    Moscow’s Missile Shield Will Last for Decades to Come

    Moscow’s air defense system will be able to effectively protect the Russian capital against any attack for many decades, a senior Aerospace Forces commander said in a radio interview on Saturday.

    “The A-135 Amur system will stay ahead of the emerging threats for the next few decades…. We are constantly upgrading our pride and joy – the Don-2N radar — and deploying new missiles that will double the system’s combat characteristics,” Colonel Andrei Cheburin told Russian News Service radio on Saturday.

    The missile defense system protecting Moscow and the Central Industrial Region consists of a number of silo-based antimissiles traveling at twice the speed of a bullet.

    “That’s why the Americans call them ‘gazelles’…Their state-of-the-art homing system ensures 100 percent acquisition and destruction on incoming ballistic targets. Righty now we are modernizing our antimissiles to further improve their combat characteristics,” Colonel Cheburin said.

    Short-range interceptor of the A-135 missile defense system. The interceptor, apparently 53T6, known as Gazelle, was launched at 7:00 MSK (4:00 UTC) and is said to have successfully reach its goal. The test was supported by the Sary-Shagan crews of the Strategic Rocket Forces and industry representatives.This appears to be a regular annual test of the interceptor. The previous one took place in June 2015.
