“I’m sure that after the development and testing the first package of the S-500 system will be entered on the tables of equipment of the branch of our troops shielding Moscow and Central Russia,” Gen Demin said after the trial tests held on the Ashuluk range in the southern Astrakhan region.
As it was reported earlier, deliveries of the S-500 packages to the Aerospace Troops are expected to begin in 2016.
