11:51 14/12/2011 MOSCOW, December 14 (RIA Novosti) - A new missile system has been deployed in Russia’s Northern Caucasus republic of Chechnya, a senior military official said on Wednesday.

The Barnaul-T system will be hooked up to Russia’s Glonass sat-nav system.

“The new system makes for better coordination of the actions of missile defenses on all levels, and also increases their mobility and durability during battle,” Lt. Col. Oleg Kochetkov told reporters.

The new system will track and coordinate information on airborne targets, Kochetkov added.
