"Guarding Moscow skies". The 202nd Anti-Aircraft Rocket Brigade is armed with S-300V missile complexes designed to act as the top tier army air defense system, providing a defense against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircrafts.
Its missiles can engage targets out to 100 km and up to altitudes of around 32 km. In both cases the warhead is around 150 kg. Let’s see another military training of the brigade which took place on February, 2nd.
