Experts Plesetsk began testing technical complex to prepare for the launch of missiles "Angara", said July 26, 2012 the official representative of the press service of the Defense Ministry and information on troops Aerospace Defense Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin.

"In the assembly building began testing ground equipment that will be used to prepare for the launch of missiles" Angara ". Prototype used for testing light" Angara ", delivered to the launch site at the end of June", — A. Zolotukhin said.
He noted that the test will last approximately three months. They should lead to the adoption of technical complex "Angara" in operation. A. Zolotukhin said that with the use of a prototype rocket experts will carry out a full cycle of electrical and pnevmoispytany.
When unloading the prototype stage rocket launch site specialists have taken readings of vibration sensors to assess how physical influences subjected rocket during transport by rail, said A. Zolotukhin.
