MINSK, 10 May (BelTA) – Upgraded multiple launch rocket systems and missile systems will be delivered to the Belarusian army, Chairman of the Belarusian State Authority for Military Industry Dmitry Pantus told the media in Minsk on 10 May, BelTA has learned.
"We have completed the work to modernize and put into service the multiple rocket launchers Uragan and BelGrad and the surface-to-air missile system Osa. These weapons have been fully tested in the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus and will be supplied to the Armed Forces within the framework of the state defense order and the state armament program,” Dmitry Pantus said.
The Belarusian defense complex is expected to develop even more promising weapons systems, including taking into account the experience of military conflicts in the world and the region.
Belarus continues testing new missiles for the Polonez rocket system and Buk medium-range surface-to-air missile system. "Missile engineering is currently one of the key areas of work for the State Authority for Military Industry. We have another stage of tests in May and then in August. I think that during this year we will hold several tests and will be able to report to the head of state at the end of the year that we will have fulled the tasks facing the State Authority for Military Industry in this key sector," Dmitry Pantus noted.
