MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Forces will receive by the end of this year the sixth set of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile system, says a release by the Russian Defense Ministry press service received by TASS on Sunday.
"Within the framework of the rearmament with new samples of weapons and military equipment in 2016, one regimental set of the long-range S-400 Triumph air defense missile system and two battalion sets of the Pantsir-S short-to-medium range air defense gun-missile system have been delivered to the air defense formations of the Aerospace Forces. The delivery of one more regimental set of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile system is planned to an air defense unit of the Aerospace Forces in the Moscow region by the end of the current year, the report says.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the Aerospace Forces currently have in service four air defense missile regiments armed with the S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems that are on combat duty to defend the airspace of Moscow and the Central Industrial District. In addition, a set of the S-400 Triumph system has been delivered to the Aerospace Forces’ educational establishments.
S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) is Russia’s newest long-range anti-aircraft missile system that went into service in 2007 and is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles. The systems can also be used against ground objectives and can reportedly carry three different types of missiles. The S-400 range is 400 km. China has become the first international customer of Russia’s most advanced medium-and long-range antiaircraft missile system.
