On the 23rd of December 2016 on the territory of one of the customers were successfully completed combat and acceptance firings performed within the contract by upgraded S-125-2TM "Pechora-2TM" medium-range ADMS.

Two combat and acceptance firings were performed using two small-size and low-altitude aerial target simulators with low radial velocity provided by the Customer. Firings were performed in a clutter in the highlands by local combat crews upon completion of the training program.
The “KDU” guidance method of the SAM and the “RV” blasting method of a missile from the radio proximity fuse were used during the combat operation of the S-125-2TM "Pechora-2TM" ADMS. Both targets were engaged. Total misses were 2m and 9m respectively for the first and second firing.
Upon completion of the combat and acceptance firings another upgraded S-125-2TM "Pechora-2TM" ADMS was supplied to the Ministry of Defense of the Customer for putting on combat duty.
