WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)-- Russia expected to have radar-evading ballistic missiles by 2021, according to the Washington Times.
"By 2016, the share of new missile systems will reach nearly 60 percent, and by 2021 their share will increase to 98 percent," said Col. Igor Yegorov, a defense ministry spokesman for the Strategic Missile Forces, the Russian news agency ITAR-TASS reported July 4. "At the same time, the troop and weapon command systems [and] combat equipment will be qualitatively improved.
