    Russia is developing a multi-role missile launcher for ship-borne missiles to be equipped on state-of-the-art watercraft of the Russian Navy, Technodynamika's head Maxim Kuzyuk told RIA Novosti.

    Technodynamika is a subsidiary of the Russian state-owned corporation Rostec.

    Technodynamika's multi-role launchers make it possible to launch missiles of different classes and purposes from a single launching tube. Similar hardware is deployed on the NATO ships equipped with the Aegis Combat System.

    "We have already completed the preplanning work to create the multi-role missile launchers for different types of missiles," Kuzyuk said, adding that the issue of deploying the brand new Shtil-1 surface-to-air missile systems has been addressed.

    Earlier it was reported that Russia was developing a new class of anti-air destroyers, known as Leader. The Russian Navy is expected to operate twelve Leader-class ships by 2025.

    The nuclear-powered Leader-class destroyer is planned to be equipped with more than 200 silo-based missiles of different class. It is meant to replace the Sovremennyy-class destroyer, the Udaloy I class and the Slava-class cruiser.
