    S-300PM2 can use almost all of the missiles from S-400 so it does not matter. There will be no old missiles.

    The number of live fire exercises they do I am sure they can burn up the old models before they time expire.

    They have enormous stocks of old model missiles used as targets and launch practise... they wont run out any time soon.

    Thats is true. I have read an article few years ago where one Russian PVO general was saying that they now practice more often than even in Soviet times.

    Sadly we never get to hear about such events or its results or anything for that matter. The last one epic in scale that I know off was oborona-2000 or something like

    that and thats it.
