MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Russia’s Almaz-Antey air defense weapons manufacturer has delivered the regimental set of the S-400 Triumf air defense missile system to the Russian Defense Ministry ahead of time. One more set will be delivered before the end of the year, the company’s press service reported on Monday.
"The equipment delivered to the Russian Defense Ministry will be supplied to the Central Military District. Before the end of 2015, the company will deliver to the Russian Defense Ministry another regimental set of the S-400 Triumf air defense missile system," the company source said.
