Vietnam’s most model missile tested

The maneuver took place from December 1 to 5.
In the real firing maneuver to check the training result in 2011, and the readiness of the
air defense forces, the most modern missile of Vietnam army – S-300 – was tested.

This kind of missile can destroy state-of-the-art warplanes and ballistic missiles with
 the height of 27km and in range of 200km.

The missile leaves the launching pad…

… to the sky.

Flying through hills…

… to the target.

The sky is brightening when the missile is launched.

Radar, the ‘eye’ of the missile.
