Russia to test newest missiles on Syrian terrorists


Russia is going to introduce new combat equipment into Syrian territory. The aim of this is to test the Kh-38 missiles in real combat settings.

The Russian Defense Ministry plans to test new weapons in Syria. In particular, the Russian Aerospace Forces are going to use the Kh-38 missiles and a new guidance system, SVP-24, for unguided bombs in a combat situation.

As it is expected, the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft cruiser with the Su-33 and the MiG-29K/KUB fighter jets, as well as with the Ka-52K Katran helicopters on its board, will head to the shores of Syria in October.

According to a source in the Russian military-industrial complex, an air group of the aircraft carrier is going to test the new Kh-38 missiles in combat conditions.

“We strengthen our air group and equip it with the most powerful weapons in the region.” a representative of the Navy Department said. “The MiG-29K will use a completely new type of the Kh-38 missiles to eliminate terrorists.”
In its turn, the Su-33 fighter jets will get a modern precision guidance system, SVP-24, for unguided bombs. It will improve the accuracy of air strikes and allow to avoid possible civilian casualties. The system adjusts a flight path, depending on a position and motion parameters of a fighter. As result, deviation from a target is not more than a couple of meters.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry handed over the Syrian army an advanced model of the Aistenok mobile radar system.
