The Russian Defense Ministry has published unique footage of the Yars intercontinental ballistic missile loading into a silo launcher (silo) in the Kozelsk missile formation in the Kaluga region. This was reported by the press service of the department on Monday, January 4.
It is noted that the missile is installed in the silo using a special transport and loading unit. The department also added that such complex technological operations last several hours.
The rearmament of the Strategic Missile Forces consists not only in equipping troops with new missile systems, but also in creating a new social infrastructure that provides better conditions for training duty forces, carrying out combat duty and rest by personnel.
On December 21, at an expanded meeting of the collegium of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, said that two regiments of the Strategic Missile Forces in 2021 will be re-equipped with mobile and silo-based Yars missile systems.
