Russian military has only a few minutes to hit target missiles

The target missiles Strizh (“Swift Bird”) and Kaban (“Wild Boar”) are a must for full-scale tests of air defense systems such as the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which will be tested on February 19 at Kapustin Yar, near Astrakhan.

Target missiles are a specific type of military equipment – a kind of simulator used to train the missile battery crews of the air defense forces. These targets are used to test new air defense systems before they are used in service.
