MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Almaz-Antei air defense concern has ahead of time delivered to the Russian Defense Ministry the ninth regimental set of the S-400 antiaircraft missile defence system, the company CEO Yan Novikov said on Wednesday.
"We have delivered the first this year and ninth in general regimental set of the S-400 Triumph missile system to our main customer - the Defense Ministry of Russia, ahead of time. This system was scheduled to be delivered this November," he said.
