BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Footage released on Thursday features Russian anti-aircraft missile troops and military air defence from the Central and Eastern military districts repelling a simulated air attack at the Zabaikalsky Krai’s Telemba firing range as part of the Vostok-2018 drills.

According to Russian Ministry of Defence, the simulation involved radar stations detecting over 30 airborne targets flying at different heights and speeds.

Target information was then passed to the S-400, S-300, Buk, and Tor anti-aircraft missile, as well as Pantsir-S medium-range surface-to-air missile systems.

All the simulated targets were successfully eliminated.

The Vostok-2018 military exercises run from 11-17 September, in the Far East of Russia. Around 300,000 troops, 1,000 aircraft, 36,000 armoured vehicles and 80 vessels are involved in the war games, according to the Ministry of Defence.

They are joined by the personnel from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and Mongolia.
