MINSK, 13 September (BelTA) – Belarusian army units fired live missiles using multiple-launch rocket systems Smerch and Polonez and tactical missile systems Tochka. The group strike by personnel of the 336th Reactive Artillery Brigade and the 465th Missile Brigade represented the culmination of a check exercise taking place in the military training area Sary-Shagan in Kazakhstan, the Belarusian Defense Ministry told BelTA.
The Belarusian army units had to fire missiles at targets located 40-100km away. The missiles deviated from their targets by only several meters.
Chief of the Missile Forces and Artillery Command of the Armed Forces of Belarus, Major-General Gennady Kozlovsky praised the performance of the Belarusian army units.
The check exercise is not over yet. The Belarusian missile forces will continue practicing their skills in the course of missile strikes but without live ammunition.
