Two plants to manufacture space-defense missiles will be built in central Russia, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.

The first facility, to be built in Nizhny Novgorod, will employ 5,000 workers and have a total manufacturing volume of about $200 million, while the second, in the city of Kirov, will employ 3,000, RIA Novosti reported.

"I hope we will develop models that are superior to those of our potential opponents," Rogozin told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Rogozin had previously proposed consolidating all the related defense-industry enterprises into a single entity to work on projects for the Aerospace Defense System, the unified strategic command combining air, missile and space defenses established in December 2011.

ADS combines existing air defense and missile defense networks, missile early warning systems and airspace monitoring systems under a unified strategic command, RIA Novosti said.
