MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia plans to double the number of military weapons tests for its Strategic Missile Forces at its central range in Russia’s south in 2016, a spokesman from the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service announced Wednesday.

“It is planned to test approximately 160 models of different types of weapons, which is twice as much as for this year. Tests will be conducted not only in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry, but also for other forces of Russia’s ministries and organs,” Strategic Missile Forces spokesman Col. Igor Yegorov said.

The tests will improve military facility defense systems from being attacked by intelligence service weapons and precision weapons guidance systems, as well as monitor the progress of advanced military and special equipment, Yegorov added.

Russia is currently undergoing a $325-billion rearmament program to achieve a 70-percent modernization of its military by 2020.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the country will hold at least 4,000 military drills throughout 2015.
