The Air and Space Defense Forces conducted a successful test of the new interceptor of the Moscow missile defense system at the Sary-Shagan test site. According to a VKS representative, "after a series of tests the interceptor fully confirmed technical characteristics of the interceptor." The test appears to have taken place on 26 November 2020.

Previous test was conducted about a month earlier, on 28 October 2020.


The video of the test shows a number of fragments leaving the silo right after the launch. These are somewhat unusual and may suggest that structures in the silo were damaged during the test.
