article imageVideo: Military might — Russia's missile defense readiness drill

By Anne Sewell     Oct 31, 2013 in Technology
On Wednesday, the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces carried out surprise live firing exercises at the Kapustin Yar testing ground, to impressive effect.
The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces carried out live firing exercises on missile defense systems at the testing ground in Russia's southern Astrakhan region on Wednesday.
RT said that involved in the exercise were drills using the S-300 Favourite, S-400 Triumph and Pantsir-S missile defense systems.
A very mixed bag of comments was made under the video on YouTube, with some saying that Russia was "flexing it's muscles" to show the US its capabilities, and others merely pointing out that the drills were on missile defense systems, built to defend the country, and not built to indiscriminately attack other countries, elsewhere in the world.
