Russian S-300 Missile Launch Goes Terribly Wrong

Here's what a failed Russian military rocket launch looks like

Amid Vladimir Putin’s controversial decision to authorize the sale of the S-300 missile system to Iran, a video has surfaced purportedly showing a failed Russian military missile launch.

While the type of missile was not immediately confirmed, a Russian military official reportedly told AFP on Wednesday that a rocket had crashed in the Arkhangelsk region in northern Russia.

In approximately eight seconds the missile shoots upward and then plummets back to the ground.

Iran’s acquisition of S-300 systems would be “a complete game changer for all fourth-gen aircraft [like the F-15, F-16 and F/A-18]. That thing is a beast and you don’t want to get near it,” a senior US Marine Corps aviator told The Daily Beast.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I bet this does not impress Iran, I wonder if they paid the bill yet for their order.

I just hope we have a good ECM system to protect our aircraft from these missles.
