MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. A regiment of air defense missile systems S-400 Triumf will be formed for the newly-created Arctic Command and deployed on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago next year.
“There are plans for forming an air defense regiment of the S-400 launchers to be deployed on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago and a battery of Pantsir-S1 combined surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon systems, to be stationed at an air base inside the Arctic Circle,” a source at the General Staff has said.
According to earlier reports, an air defense unit based in the Kola Peninsula was armed with S-400 systems this year and Pantsir-S1 were deployed on the Novosibirsk islands.
The new strategic Arctic Command went operational on December 1 on the basis of the Northern Fleet. It incorporates a number of units of three military districts.
