Russia and Belarus will jointly develop a new short-range anti-aircraft missile complex, it was announced on Tuesday.

'The Nudelman Precision Engineering Design Bureau (KBtochmash) will join hands with our Belarusian colleagues to develop, starting next year, an all-new short-range air defense missile system," the Bureau's managing director Vladimir Slobodchikov told RIA Novosti on Tuesday without elaborating.

The Nudelman Precision Engineering Design Bureau (KBtochmash) is one of the leading Russian companies developing defense technologies and systems for the land forces, navy and the air force, specializing in the development of high-precision forward line weapons.

Founded in 1934, KBtochmash started out designing automatic aviation guns, subsequently switching to developing missile systems. It is famous for its Falanga anti-tank system, Cobra missile system of guided weapons for tanks, Strela-10 anti-aircraft missile system, C-25L and C-25LD guided air missiles.

The enterprise's latest developments include Sosna ADMS, Palma naval air-defense system, Sosna-R anti-aircraft laser-guided missile, Palma-SU optronic fire control system, and a portable laser automatic device of optronic countermeasures.

Modern KBtochmash products are notable for their high effectiveness of combat application achieved due to great firepower, minimum guidance errors and operation covertness, automation of combat operations, high jamming immunity as well as day/night and all-weather capability.
