Russians put Verba through its paces

14th September 2020 - 17:30 GMT | by Leonid Nersisyan in Yerevan


The 9K333 Verba MANPADS system has been used to cover a military train, in a special drill conducted by air defence units in the Russian Southern Military District.

The exercise in early September simulated an air attack on military equipment moving across the steppe.

Operators used a 1L122 Garmon compact radar (which is an optional part of the Verba system) to locate airborne targets at a range of 30km. After signalling the presence of the enemy, the automated control system determined the location of the target and set the azimuth for firing. The targets were destroyed at a range of 6,000m.
