ArmInfo. Soldiers of the anti-aircraft missile unit of the Russian military base of the  Southern Military District (SDO) stationed in Armenia at the Kapustin Yar test range in the Astrakhan region began preparations for the combat firing of C-300V surface-to-air missile systems.

As head of the Southern Military District  press service Vadim  Astafyev told ArmInfo, on the eve of the beginning of the exercises  with the military men, classes were held to repel attacks of air  assault means, cover the most important facilities and control posts  in Gyumri and Yerevan military garrisons, and defeat speedy  small-sized targets on simulators. In addition, anti-aircraft gunners  complied with the standards for deploying the complexes and bringing  them into readiness for use.

Within a week, servicemen will hand over complex practical and  theoretical tests and specifications for special, technical training  to obtain admission to the conduct of the division tactical training  and combat firing of the C-300V SAM. In tactical exercises, S-300V  surface-to-air missiles carry out combat launches against targets  that simulate the active actions of the conventional enemy at large  and short ranges and altitudes.

In total, more than 150 servicemen and more than 50 military  equipment were involved in the exercises.
