Russian air defence troops have successfully ended practice shooting from certain kinds of Russia air defence systems. The shooting exercises have been conducted on Kapustin Yar test range in the Astrakhan region for a delegation of Iranian military experts.

The Russian-made air defence guns have been demonstrated in action as had been earlier agreed by the two sides. Russian military experts had been shooting at high-speed targets flying at low and high altitudes at a different range."All the targets have been destroyed at one go" the Russian military experts reported.

Experts of the Russian Defence Ministry noted that the Iranian military experts drew attention to unique possibilities of some of the Russian air defence systems which have no analogues in the world. Iran desperately needs to upgrade its air defence system which still depends on equipment purchased 25 years ago from the United States.
