The Russian Ministry of Defense has released a video of the testing of a modernized missile defense system. 

Tests were held at the Sary-Shagan training ground in Kazakhstan. The anti-missile system successfully hit all the targets.

The system is part of the aerospace forces and will be positioned to protect Moscow from air and space attacks. Among its tasks is to work in conjunction with the missile attack warning system and the control of such, in outer space. 

Earlier, it was speculated that Moscow has the technology that can re-program the coordinates of any detected missile, and direct it back to the sender, as well as unleash its own. This has never been seen on video. 

According to the head of the Department of Algorithms and Missile Defense Programs, Colonel Ildar Tagiyev, these systems have no analogues in the world. “Suffice it to say that the speed of flight is 3 km / sec, which exceeds the speed of a bullet several times.”

Currently, the A-135 anti-missile defense system is responsible for the defense of the capital. Its development began in 1971, and the first launches took place in 1979. A-135 consists of a radar station “Don-2N” in the Moscow region Sofrino, command-and-control point 5K80 in Pushkino and several  complexes equipped with short-range interceptors 53T6.
