Syrian ballistic missile forces made ready


The Russian Federal News Agency has released a brief video report showing Syrian Arab Army missile forces carrying out a regular drill with mobile tactical ballistic missile launchers.

The tactical ballistic missiles shown in the video belong to a Soviet-era design called the OTR-21 Tochka. The exact OTR-21 model – Scarab A, Scarab B or Scarab C – is not entirely clear.

Prior to conducing their training exercise near the end of the video, Syrian Tochka crews offer thanks before Russian cameras for the military support provided to the Syrian Armed Forces by Moscow.

The location of the event is unknown, however it likely took place somewhere in west of Syria.
