MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. A third batch of equipment for a regiment of the S-400 "Triumph" air defense missile systems has arrived from Vladivostok to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, spokesman for Russia’s Eastern Military District Roman Martov said on Wednesday.
"The batch comprises more than 50 units of equipment, spare parts and accessories of the S-400 missile system that will soon replace the S-300. The rearmament will be completed soon and the new S-400 air defense missile system will be put on combat duty to protect air frontiers of Russia’s northeast," Martov said.
The first batch that included more than 20 equipment units for the S-400 system had arrived in Kamchatka in early February. The second batch arrived to the peninsula in April. According to previous reports, the delivery of the regimental set of the Triumph missile systems will take five trains.
A Russian Defense Ministry source told TASS previously that the S-400 regimental set for Kamchatka would comprise three battalions, and not two as before.
The S-400 missile systems are already protecting the skies over Moscow and St. Petersburg, and Severomorsk - the headquarters of the Northern Fleet, the Kaliningrad region - the most western part of the country, locked between Poland, Lithuania and Belarus and home to Russia’s Baltic Fleet, and also southern regions and the coast of the Sea of Japan in the Far East. The S-400 is a new generation anti-aircraft system, which can be equipped with very long-range missiles (up to 400km), long-range (250km) and medium-range (120km). It’s capable of shooting down anything from small aircraft to cruise missiles such as the Tomahawk, and even ballistic missiles armed with nuclear warheads.
