The Air Defence Forces of the Ground Troops have taken into service advanced air defence missile systems S-300V4 and Tor-M2U in the outgoing year, official of the press service and information department of Russian Defence Ministry for the Ground Troops Major Kirill Kiselev told TASS.
“According to state contracts in 2014 two division sets of S-300V4 and Tor-M2U were supplied to the Air Defence Forces. Ahead of the New Year an air defence missile system S-300V4 was delivered for an air defence formation in the Southern Military District,” he said.
