Ukrainian state-run Ukroboronprom along with other defense enterprises has completed the final testing of ‘Vilkha’ multiple-barrel rocket system.
Fire tests were held in the Kherson region with the participation of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The President instructed to launch mass production of the missile in 2018, the company said in a statement Thursday.
“Why is it so important? Not only because the Ukrainian Army will finally get high-precision weaponry that will substantially increase the efficiency of the AFU units, but also because the “Vilkha” missile is fully made of Ukrainian details. Nobody can hinder us in producing this high-precision weaponry,” Poroshenko said.
“Only two years ago, the NSDC made a decision to begin the missile program and today, we have finished testing. The missile will be added to the armory,” the President said.
“I can tell one specific figure: this missile is 10 times more precise and, accordingly, 10 times more efficient than the old multiple-launch rocket systems that have been in service since the Soviet Union times,” he said.
“New tasks that include the development of cruise missiles have been set,” Poroshenko said.
