Belarusian army tests modernized Polonez missile system

Successful tests of the advanced version of the salvo fire system Polonez were made in the Homel region. Polonez was created by Belarusian developers. Now the system can hit targets at a distance of up to 300 km.

The minimum deviation from the target was 10-15 meters.

Each combat vehicle of the complex is capable of simultaneously striking eight targets.

It was noted that the missile flight route was calculated in advance, it passed over the uninhabited regions of the republic and was constantly adjusted.

It should be recalled that Belarus doubled the export of military products over the past five years. In 2016, exports amounted to about $1 billion.

Elements of this missile system are based on Belarusian wheeled chassis.

Oleg Dvigalev, Chairman of the State Military-Industrial Committee of the Republic of Belarus:
The missile hit the target exactly. The launcher behind my back... Its localization is 95%, it's produced mainly in the Republic of Belarus. It's no secret that 100% localization is very difficult to achieve in today's world, because we use the latest technology of our neighbors and friends. We are exchanging experience in this direction.
