The upgraded “Villemah” strikes targets by 130 km
Today the test of the modernized missile complex “Villema-M” has been tested, missiles capable of striking the target almost twice as long as those that are in service.

“But our designers and manufacturers continued their persistent work on the further development of missile technology, and today there were very important tests of the modernized complex” Villa-M “, whose new missiles strike at a distance of 130 km”
According to Oleksandr Turchinov, during the tests, the use of new missiles for the purpose of destroying the maximum range, as well as the accuracy and efficiency of the destruction of the target were tested. “Also checked the work of the new control system, the effectiveness of new navigation equipment, and the quality of the new start-up control system,” he said.
