"Personnel arrived at the special air defense center in the Krasnodarsky Territory where they will learn how to load the missile system and how to find and recognize targets. The first target practice with the Tor-M2U will be held at a training range of the Kapustin Yar air defense center in Spring 2015," the statement reads.
More so, the district reports that in the second half of 2015, Tor-M2U crews of the Eastern Military District motor rifle unit stationed in Primorksy Territory will also undergo a training course.
The Tor-M2U is a new-generation short-range missile system of the Tor series. It is designed for protecting military and civil facilities from aircraft, missile and bomb attacks.
The system is able to recognize more than 40 targets simultaneously, classify them according to the level of danger and attack four targets with rockets at the same time. The guided missiles of the Tor were specially developed to intercept small-sized maneuvering targets.
