more news about the exsersize


Interfax-Military News Agency quoted chief of strategic missile forces Col.-Gen. Nikolai Solovtsov as saying planned manoeuvres would involve several launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. A defence ministry spokesperson refused comment.

Kommersant said the manoeuvres would involve:

Tu-160 strategic bombers test-firing cruise missiles over the North Atlantic, which some analysts described as an imitation of a nuclear attack on the United States.

Other groups of bombers flying over Russia's Arctic regions and test-firing missiles at a southern range near the Caspian Sea.

Several ICBM launches, including one from a Russian nuclear submarine in the Barents Sea.

Military satellite launches from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and the Plesetsk launch pad in northern Russia. System warnings of an enemy missile attack, involving a missile defence system to protect Moscow.
