MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. Medium-range anti-aircraft defence system S-350 Vityaz will enter duty in the near future, the commander of the Air Force’s anti-aircraft defence, Major-General Sergey Babakov, told the media on Wednesday.
"In the near future air defence units will begin to be armed with the new generation S-350 systems," Babakov said.
Currently, he said, the Russian armed forces were being rearmed with S-400 system Triumf and air defenсe missile-artillery system Pantsir-S.
"The deliveries are proceeding in keeping with the defenсe contract schedule, without any disruptions," he said.
Earlier, the chief of the Almaz-Antei concern, Yan Novikov, said that the S-350 system Vityaz will begin to be batch-produced this year. For the first time the S-350E modification was presented to the public at large at the international air show MAKS-2013 near Moscow.
