Crimea coastal defense system to be rearmed with new missiles
The Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (part of Tactical Missiles Corporation) has carried out work to restore the Soviet underground coastal defense missile system ‘Utyos’ in Crimea and is considering rearming it with new missiles, Company CEO and Chief Designer Alexander Leonov said.
"Now the point at issue is the possible rearming of this system with new types of missiles," the chief executive said.
The company started restoring the Utyos underground coastal defense system in 2014 and "carried out uneasy work but, nonetheless, fulfilled the assigned task successfully and on time," he stressed.
"The successful launches after the repair and restoration works showed that the system was ready to defend its sector of the Crimean coast," TASS cited Leonov as saying.
