Moldova And Russia Ready To Start Producing Anti-Hail Missiles

Chisinau company "Topaz" and Perm enterprises "Iskra" and "Motovilikhinsk plants" (the Urals) will be ready by the end of the year to start producing new type anti-hail missiles and launchers for them in Moldova's capital. Topaz director Valery Butanu said that these missiles made in Perm are better than the Alazan missiles previously used in the republic: they have faster speed and range. They can rise at a height of 4 to 5 km even if the wind is blowing very hard. Production of such missiles is very important for Moldova. The anti-hail service has been preserved in the republic, but its content is mostly out-of-date. The Topaz plant, that was within the Soviet military industrial complex earlier, has workshops and all the necessary equipment for producing missiles in a number sufficient for the needs of agriculture and exports to the neighboring countries. The Moldovan government is now developing an anti-hail service modernization program, stressed Valery Butanu.
