BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – Units of the Russian Aerospace Forces tested the S-300PM surface-to-air missile system in combat drills in the Ashuluk testing range, Astrakhan Region on Wednesday.

During the exercises the S300 launched 15 missiles which destroyed a total of seven aerial targets, according to Commander of the First Special Army of the Russian Anti-Aircraft Defence, Lieutenant-General Andrey Dyomin.

“These drills showed once again that S-300 is reliable even though it was created in the early nineties and is being fine-tuned right now,” the general said.

There is missing info on how many targets where there in all? If there was seven targets then system was 100% effective with average 2 missiles per target…


I think that is how the system is design.for every target the system intercept with two missiles.
