What we know

The new video, which is less than 30 seconds long, shows a spectacular launch of the missile. The video was shot relatively recently. Which Russian military facility was the target is not specified at this time.

Let's remind that the Tochka tactical missile system was developed in the mid-1970s. At the same time it was adopted by the army of the USSR. Almost 15 years later, a modernized version appeared, which is called "Tochka-U".

The complex consists of a number of rocket systems.

The complex includes the 9M79M missile with different warheads. The maximum launch range is 120 km, which is 50 km more compared to the Tochka complex. The circular probable deviation has also been reduced from 150 m to 95 m.
