The year 2015 for the Russian Army will be marked by an undoubtedly significant event - the adoption of a new version of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system.
From its predecessors, the S-300 and S-400 air defense missile systems, the new product will differ in increased intelligence and, on its basis, significantly improved tactical and technical characteristics, which will allow the updated Triumph to "deal" without problems even with ballistic missiles in near space ...
None of the currently existing foreign anti-aircraft missile systems has such a range of destruction as the Russian S-300V4 and S-400 - 400 kilometers. Due to the improved characteristics of the new missile, the height of the targets hit has also increased.
General Kirill Makarov, deputy commander of the Aerospace Defense Forces, told reporters that during the tests of the new product, perhaps the only problem arose related to the territory of the test site, which was not enough for the rocket. Tests should be completed in May-June, after which a final decision will be made on the acceptance of the missile into service by the end of the year.
