Foreign companies not to take part in development of new railway combat missile complex


Only Russian enterprises will be involved in the effort to develop a new railway-based combat missile system, Aide to the Strategic Missile Force Commander Igor Denisov said on Tuesday.

“We earlier had a combat railway missile complex. It was created with the participation of Ukrainian enterprises. In the early 2000s, the work on its creation was completed. Today a new design and development effort has been launched to envisage exclusively Russian cooperation. As of today, this design and development work is at its first stage,” Denisov said.

According to data of Russia’s Defense Ministry, the first missile regiment of the railway-based missile complex was placed on combat duty on October 20, 1987.
