    Russia tests domestice anti-ballistic interceptor missile

    Russia carried out a successful test of a short-range interceptor missile on Tuesday as a part of its effort to develop a domestic missile defense shield, the Defense Ministry said.

    The missile was launched from the Sary-Shagan (Kazakhstan) shooting range, the Ministry’s spokesperson said.

    The goal of the test was to confirm the technical characteristics of the missile used by the Defense Ministry’s Space Command.

    Russia's Defense Ministry uploaded a video of the missile's launch on its web site.

    The test comes a month after the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that if Moscow's participation in the European missile defense project fails, Russia would deploy Iskander tactical missiles in the Kaliningrad Region and halt its disarmament and arms control efforts, including participation in the new strategic arms reduction treaty with the United States.

    Russia-NATO missile defense talks are close to deadlock as Moscow is seeking written, legally binding guarantees that the U.S.-backed European missile defense program will not be directed against it. Washington, however, refuses to provide the guarantees, saying the shield is directed against threats from Iran and North Korea.

    Russia and NATO agreed to cooperate on European missile defense system at the Lisbon Summit in November 2010. Medvedev proposed a joint system with full-scale interoperability to ensure that the alliance's system will not be directed against Moscow. The military bloc, however, favors two independent systems which exchange information.

    I said this before in the forum and I say it again. Iran acquiring all these missile technologies was not without US approval. Why?? A Saudi military analyst said on Russia Today that the US is going to use Iran as an excuse to advance its missile shield against China and Russia

    The Russians have had operational ABM systems in place since the 1960's... nothing new.

    Yes! U info is absolutely right the Iran is exagerating its power with secret US approval....and US is exagerating Iran too as a big threat...whereas Iran has nothing anything like threat to anybody within the region or beyond....this is just a movie going on with false claims on both sides trying to gain some strategic benefits by the US/NATO within the region against Russia and China(to install missile defence shields).....and everybody knows that very well cuz these are the only cheap tactics left with the US.....:smokin:

    You're right, what i don't get is why Russia is pretending not to know the fact this missile shield is aimed at them.
    Iran said they dont plan on making longer range missile because if they did we would had easily had missile with range >5000km by now, I dont doubt we are working on such missiles but i dont see Iran mass producing them.

    Also Iran cannot buy any weapons from russian anymore due to sanctions, so if anyone buys these its you people not us.
