Russia Launches New Anti-Missile Defense System (Video)

Click to see full-size image

The Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) launched a new anti-missile missile defense system, the Defense Ministry told reporters.

The tests took place at the Sary-Shagan test site in Kazakhstan.

Major General Sergei Grabchuk, commander of the VKS missile defense formation, said that “after a series of tests, the new missile defense missile system has reliably confirmed the inherent characteristics, and the combat crews have successfully completed the task, hitting a conditional target with a given accuracy.”

As previously reported in the Ministry of Defense, in 2017-2021, ten test launches of a new anti-missile missile took place from the Sary-Shagan test site.

After one of the tests, Igor Korotchenko, a member of the public council under the Russian Ministry of Defense, told RIA Novosti that the adoption of a new anti-missile missile would significantly increase the capabilities of the missile defense system of Moscow and the Central Industrial Region.

According to him, this refers to the 53T6M anti-missile, which is intended to replace the old underground-launched anti-missiles, which currently provide the operation of the A-135 system.

There were few reports in regard to this system, and the most recent one is from June 2019.

Back then the Russian Defense Ministry published a video of a test launch of a new missile defense system. It was, more or less, exactly the same test.

The tests took place at the Sary-Shagan training ground in Kazakhstan. The footage shows how the deployment and preparation of the rocket for launch occurs. The very moment of launch can be observed from several angles.

According to Colonel Vladimir Sergienko, the deputy commander of the missile defense formation of the Aerospace Forces, the missile hit a conditional target with a given accuracy, confirming all the inherent characteristics.

Viktor Murakhovsky, a member of the expert council at the board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation, military expert, spoke about this missile on Sputnik radio.

“This is a so-called short-range intercept missile, now it is being upgraded and is being used to equip our missile defense system. It is distinguished by increased speed, more powerful warhead, it provides reliable interception of the corresponding class of targets, which is confirmed by all tests,” said Viktor Murakhovsky.

One year earlier, the exact same test was also carried out in Kazakhstan.

Good for Russia 😊👍🇷🇺

The Objective

You are stating some facts on this forum that few seem to realize. Russia wants to unify Syria under a secular dictatorship free of Iranian or Shiite influence. Russia has been building a new Syrian military for this purpose, and even Assad doesn’t 100% agree with Putin. There is infighting within the Syrian military and leadership itself because the Iran-allied officers are resisting Russian orders and plans.
The U.S failed to remove Erdogan from power and they are hating his guts more than ever. For this reason, they want to get back at Erdogan’s Turkey by leaving Turkey to face Russia in Syria. They have obviously agreed to give Syria to Russia but on two conditions:
1. Russia will protect the Kurdish forces from Turkey by integrating them in a future Syrian military and possibly even making them the dominant force.
2. Russia will cut the Iran-Hezbollah link through Syria and also erode Iran’s influence in Syria.

Russia obviously agrees to such a deal because it’ll make Russia, Israel, America, the winner of the Syrian war. How?
First, Russia gets to unify Syria under a leadership and military it can control even with Kurdish elements included.
Secondly, Russia is an enemy of Turkey and would like to see the Kurds strengthened in Syria. This will be seen as payback for Turkey’s support to Ukraine.

As for America and Israel, they win by creating a secular dictatorship in Syria that prevents arms flow from Iran to Lebanon and hostile to Turkey.

At the moment, Turkey is the main obstacle to this Russian American deal. Iran isn’t that much of a challenge as the U.S and Israel can practically bomb Iran out of Syria were Turkey to leave. But Turkey refuses to leave. And Russia doesn’t have the military muscle to push Turkey out. In other words, Turkey is indirectly also saving Iran’s ass. It remains to be seen how far the Iranians will cooperate with Turkey to push the U.S and Russia out or at least make Syria ungovernable for them. Iran’s recent missile and drone attack on Iraqi Kurds is a good indication of the calculus changing in Tehran. They should have aligned with Erdogan’s Turkey long long ago, but their Shiite sectarianism blinded their vision.
However, it isn’t too late. Even a temporary alliance between Turkey and Iran can seriously shake up the Middle East. For example, Turkey has refused to sell drones and other military hardware to Saudi Arabia. Also, Erdogan is the most friendly Turkish president to Iran. Yemen could be the graveyard of AlSaud’s oppressive kingdom.

I’m hoping that Iran will make use of Yemen to bring down the Saudi monarchy. Erdogan must be wishing for the same too. If these two regimes (Saudi, U.A.E) can be removed, the entire Middle East will change dramatically. Both America and Russia will be forced out, leaving Iran and Turkey to agree on rebuilding a new order.

It’s time for Iran to keep sectarianism aside and join the alliance Turkey is building – even if just temporarily in solving the Syrian case to both Iran and Turkey’s advantage. Sectarian policies have cost Iran and the Muslim world a lot. Cooperation between Syrian Sunnis and Shiites will kick the U.S, Russia, and Israel out. A joint Turkish Iranian efforts can close Syria’s airspace to Israeli attacks.

Russia is Christian and no Christian country should EVER be trusted, Says the Qur’an.

Thats a lot of salty kosher tears Shlomo…
Greater Israel Project lost…
New Khazaria project lost…
Iraq lost…
Afghanistan lost…
Yemen is winning…
Syria winning…
Iran stronger than ever…
Meanwhile Israeli strikes are 90+% ineffective, useless duds.
You played all your aces and lost.
Israel not only lost at the tactical and strategical level but it lost its more high ground which is far more worse than any defeat.
You and the crumbling americant empire are out in the open now, naked…
Oy gevalt…
Wont even mention the fact that your own govt has betrayed you, pushing down your throat the satanic poison jabs.
Interestingly they are silent about Japan and African countries where less than 1% of the population is vaccinated, yet no major outbreaks comparable with the west.
Israel has the highest vaccination rates 90+% and it has the highest number of covid cases.
According to the Israeli health minister 82% of the covid patients in hospitals are fully vaccinated.
It not only doesn’t work, it generates the pandemic or should I call it plandemic.
You think you are winning when you lost on all fronts both at home and abroad.
Bible scripture is slowly coming true, Israel is set up to fail and for destruction.
I dont want it to be honest.
You are doing it yourselves, putting yourself and your country on a path that leads to self destruction.
Bon voyage Shlomo…

Yeah the pandemic scam is used by traitors.

The Objective

You are replying to an impostar not me.


Fight your own battles you coward.

Muck raking is all you do, join up, go fight your enemy. Maybe your nation will get the balls to go with you, but more likely you and your nation are just praying some other muppet does it for you.


Nice! You’re really good at fan fiction. Do you take requests? How about a star wars where Princess Leia has a 3 way with Jabba the Hut and Yoda.

Chess Master

And you are princess leia :)

Those that hate Jews let them be reminded that during Cold War, Turkey and Iran were allies of Israel and Putin was never anti-Jewish.

Israel wanted Assad to win because a Sunni Syria would have the support of Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and also Iran would help them by arming Hamas. But Assad won because Morsi fell and also Iraq’s Maliki fell. Morsi and Maliki hated Assad. Sisi was very pro-Assad and Abadi and Kadhimi in Iraq are pro-Western and neutral.


You are shacking SF house,


Wake up wake up you seem to have fallen into a dream again.

Chris Gr

These are not Iraqi Kurds but Turkish and Iranian Kurdish far-left groups. Turkey and Iran have good relations with Iraqi Kurdistan centrist and right-wing groups.

The Objective

This comment is not by the real “The Objective”


Why would Syria throw Russia out when it is helping them. And Iran has been accepted into the Sco.

The new A-235 anti ballistic missile system is on a whole new level.
Only the S-500 is comparable but this has far more longer range.
It can take out anything in low Earth orbit.
If aliens arent careful they will get showed one up their a… too :)

Interesting thoughts in this thread , good to see russia improving their defense.
I hope the “bad guys” in Idlib get cleared out soon.


The Russians make the best missiles in the world.
Yes they got a lot of secrets from Nazis.
In America we also got their secrets however it died with them apparently?We were not able to expand that knowledge.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
