In 2019, Ukraine will test its new weapons. It is reported by the press service of the Cabinet.
In particular, tests of the Ukrainian Kolibri anti-aircraft missile system will begin next year.
In addition, in 2019, it is planned to complete the development and begin testing of a ground-based cruise missile complex to destroy the naval advanced targets of the Neptune project.
Earlier the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced the test of anti-ship cruise missile as part of the Neptune project, and also announced the start of deliveries of the Vilkha missiles to the Ukrainian military.
It is noted that it became possible with the high-end manufacturing lines and very accurate machine tools.
As Ukroboronprom stated, one of the key enterprises in this medium is Kyiv State Design Bureau ‘Luch’, which developed and massively produces high-accuracy missile systems: RK-3 ‘Corsar’, ‘Strunga-P' and ‘Barrier’.
The handed weapons included high-accurate 152mm ‘Kvitnyk’ shells, which hits the target on 20-kilometer distance with an accuracy of a few centimeters and 80mm ‘Oskol’ missiles. In addition, the State Joint-Stock Holding Company "Artem" began work on the mass production of new 152-mm shells for ‘Giatsint’ artillery systems.
