    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the country's Strategic Missile Forces will supply command centers with a new integrated automated battle management system.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) will receive a new c of the fifth generation in 2016, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said Tuesday.

    "Beginning from 2016, Russia's Strategic Missile Forces will proceed with supplying modernized SMF command centers and advanced strategic missile systems, which are under development, with integrated ASBU units," Dmitry Andreev said.

    He added that the battle management system used in Yars mobile ground missile systems significantly enhances the performance of the missile system due to advanced communications equipment and modern telecommunication technologies.

    Russia is planning to modernize up to 70 percent of its military hardware by 2020. The total modernization program cost is estimated to reach about 20 trillion rubles (some $274 billion at current exchange rates).
