Russia has tested 162 types of weapons, including long range cruise missiles, in Syria.
Sergei Shoigu told the Russian parliament that the military has tested 162 types of weapons in Syria, and only 10 of them have failed to meet expectations. He didn’t identify the weapons that performed badly, Radio Free Europe reported Wednesday.
Among the new weapons tested in combat for the first time in Syria were long-range cruise missiles carried by navy ships and strategic bombers.
Russia’s defence minister said Wednesday that the new Russian weapons have proven their worth in the conflict.
Until recently, Russia lacked long-range cruise missiles equipped with conventional warheads similar to those in the US arsenals.
Shoigu said Russian pilots have flown 1,760 combat missions in Syria since the launch of the air campaign in September 2015, killing more than 3,100 militants, including 26 warlords.
He added that nearly 90 per cent of all Russian military pilots have gained combat experience in the skies over Syria.
