"For the general purpose forces: the task is to supply to the Army two brigade sets of the Iskander-M missile system and Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) each, as well as one brigade set of the Buk-M3 air defense missile system," the minister said at the Defense Ministry’s collegium meeting devoted to the results of the outgoing year.

Also, he said, six battalions are to be rearmed with new tanks and combat vehicles next year, and more than 200 modernised aircraft are to be delivered to the Aerospace Force and the Navy aviation.

The Buk-M3 medium-range surface-to-air missile system, a modernized version of the Buk-M2 system, features advanced electronic components and a deadly new missile and could be regarded as a completely new system.

The Buk-M3 system boasts a new digital computer, high-speed data exchange system and a telethermal imaging target designator instead of the teleoptical trackers used in previous models.
