The Ukrainian company Radionics and the state design bureau Luch successfully test-launched a missile using the modernized S-125 M Pechora surface-to-air defense missile system, the bureau’s press office reported on Facebook.


During the test, a 5V27D-M2 missile with an active radar-guided warhead was launched from a modernized anti-aircraft missile system.

"At the initial stage, the rocket moves along an aeroballistic trajectory, which substantially increases the hit zone range for the S-125 M," the bureau wrote.
