    Russia's high-speed VA-111 Shkval torpedoes will be upgraded as part of the national 2018-2025 state armaments program.

    ZHUKOVSKIY (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) — The Russian Navy's high-speed VA-111 Shkval torpedoes will be upgraded as part of the national 2018-2025 state armaments program, the head of Russia's Tactical Missiles Corporation said Thursday.

    "Work is underway, I think the parameters will be seriously improved. The program is part of the 2018-2025 state armaments program," Boris Obnosov told reporters at the MAKS-2017 International Aviation and Space Salon.

    MAKS is one of the largest air shows in the world. Established 25 years ago, it's being held at the Zhukovsky airfield, 40 km (25 miles) southeast of Moscow.
