Kyiv tests new high-precision Vilkha-M missile system
In the morning of July 25, the next stage of testing of the multiple rocket launcher system Vilha took place in the Odessa region, reports the press service of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC).
Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Sergey Krivonos, who participated in the assessment of the testing, called the test a success.
According to him, NSDC made several decisions for the early adoption and supply of new missiles for multiple launch rocket systems.
Ukraine has been developing Vilha missile system and its ammunition for several years. Luch Design Bureau has developed the missiles for Vilha, and State Joint Stock Holding Company Artem is producing them.
Conventional missiles Vilha can accurately hit the target at a distance of 70 km. The Vilha-M missiles with extended shooting range can hit a target at a distance of 130 km.
Vilha-R missiles with a cluster warhead have also been developed for the last several years, and they have already passed all the tests and should be adopted soon.
