A Russian origin S-300B1 air and missile Defence System, tested for the first time in 19 years, destroyed two airborne targets with its missiles Saturday, Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) reported.
“For the first time in 19 years, there was combat use of the mobile S-300B1 anti-air missile system, whose crew destroyed two targets. The successful combat launches from the restored small and intermediate-range system, as well as the tests of the modernized fire guidance systems, will open up further work prospects for the Ukrainian defense industry complex,” a military expert told UAwire on Sunday.
According to the NSDC, the drills in which the S-300B1 was tested involved anti-air defense infantry divisions as well as anti-air missile troops from the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
