Representative of the Ministry of Defence announced plans to develop Russia’s own program of sea-based missile interceptors, such as the American system Aegis.
Aegis radar systems on warships are equipped with interceptor missiles that could destroy them on the fly. It’s part of the impersonated U.S. plan to install elements of the NATO missile defense system in Europe, which has long been worried about Moscow.
United States argues that the Aegis is designed to protect against such countries as Iran. Moscow is convinced that this system is directed against Russian nuclear weapons.
Anatoly Rogue from the United Shipbuilding Corporation, told the news agency that the Kremlin "has given a clear mission," the Russian defense industry to develop marine interceptor missiles.
Rogue refused to disclose the details, because this information is classified.
