2 batteries at Elektrostal
2 batteries at Dedenevo
1 battery at Kaliningrad
1 battery at Nakhodka
1 battery at Novorossiysk
Are there unit designators that can be applied to each location? Did I miss a deployment anywhere?
I think in Nakhodka and Novorossiysk you have regiments not batteries. 9 batteries all in all.
Every year until 2015 (included) Russia will make 2 regiments of S-400 (until those two new Almaz Antej factories are finished).
Starting from 2016 we should see about 4 regiments of S-400 (most likely modernized version) per year.
What is interesting and most puzzling is intention to have 9 S-300V4 brigades by 2020. Thats some real long range firepower.

i would say dissapointing
only 9 out of 11 target were hit.
i would say s-300 even by trained russian crews has flopped and failed.
we can only imagine how easy it will be for israel to obliterate it with pathetic syrian crews...
Nope, all targets where shoot down. C-300 hit all targets during exercises near Astrakhan
The audit will cover the combat calculations designated areas for the purpose of detecting and destroying aircraft and ballistic targets represented a real target. LINK
"In the calculations it is usually assumed that the air to intercept a ballistic target, or at least need to use two missiles. Probability of hitting a target, one air missiles are always lower than one, so the launch, as a rule, two interceptors. In this case, the result is better than anticipated Theory of fire, which is used in the aerospace defense forces, "- said Esin.
but the thing you are referring to is that 9/11 ballistic targets where shoot down with one missile and 2/11 with the use of two missiles.
Experts: Russian aerospace defense system will ensure the destruction of any air targets
Putin wanted all target missiles to be hit with one missiles only.

Don't even know what you are ranting about.
They where shooting from the S-300 modernized to Favorit standard so command posts are good.
That talk about "communication" was general talk because they are in a process of getting SAM and radar command post and all other things.
Also what is interesting is that MIG-31 was used to shoot down real cruise missiles (Kh-555 most likely) fired from Tu-95
The head of the Defense Ministry reported that during the exercises link the MiG-31 is the destruction of the real cruise missile launched from a strategic bomber Tu-95.
and at the end the conditions in which exercise where performed where far from optimal because:
Thousands of civilian aircraft obstructed the work of the troops ASD checking
