Russia stopped production of 12 models of weapons ‘after testing in Syria’

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that his country has stopped the production of 12 models of Russian weapons after its failed experience during the military operation in Syria, while 300 others have been updated.

“Depending on the results of the military operation in Syria, we have had several meetings devoted to analyzing the work of our weapons and military equipment,” Shoigu told the Moscow Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

There were 12 models that were considered promising and we stopped producing them (based on that experience).

During the military operation in Syria, 231 models of modern and up-to-date weapons, which showed their high combat effectiveness, were tested during a military operation in Syria, Russian media reported in August.
