MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. The Moscow Region’s regiment of the anti-missile and air defense unit of the Aerospace Force has conducted firing practice at the Ashuluk test site using S-400 missile systems, the Russian Defense Ministry told the media.

"The active phase of the routine tactical exercise is over. The air defense regiment’s crews repelled a hypothetical enemy’s massive missile and air strike to hit high-altitude, low altitude and ballistic targets with the use of S-400 missile systems Triumf," the Defense Ministry said.

S-400 crews operating from unequipped positions destroyed ten targets simulating ballistic and tactical missiles of a potential enemy. Also, there were ten virtual electronically simulated launches against real air targets - MiG-29SMT fighters.

"For the first time ever a whole air defense regiment - three S-400 battalions - was redeployed to a proving ground for live firing practice," the Defense Ministry said.

The air defense regiment that took part in the exercise near Astrakhan was the first to have been rearmed with S-400 launchers in 2007. In 2016 it was re-equipped with a new generation S-400 system.
