Russian defense company Tactical Missiles Corp has started working on Three-shift basis to meet the growing demand for its products in Syrian operations.

Russia has ramped up the production of Kh-29L high-precision air-to-surface missiles and KAB-500s guided bombs, both products by TMC since the start of the military campaign, Sputnik reported Tuesday.

Additionally, the Russian Navy urgently purchased eight cargo vessels from Turkish ship operators. The vessels were registered as support ships with military status because regular Russian warships could not carry the load.

On September 30, Russia began precision airstrikes on ISIL terrorist group positions in Syria at the request of Damascus.

According to the Defense Ministry, from September 30 to October 22, Russian jets conducted 934 sorties from Hmeymim airbase and destroyed at least 819 ISIL targets.
