It would be interesting to see the next contract for some S-400M still we are long way off.
What is the composition of the regiments ?
The wiki is not so clear about it.
The S-400 should has more than one radar type , and more than one launcher type.
Any info about the comosition of these?
At first all delivered S-400 regiment consisted of two S-400 batteries. Last year S-400 regiment consisted of 3 S-400 batteries (8 S-400 batteries per regiment is max)
Each battery has up to 12 TEL + shooting radar (92N6) (at first delivered S-400 batteries had 4 TEL per battery and now 8 as is the most usual number found).
also you have different streinghtening of the batteries according to estimated threats
Regiment has also regimental search radar (91N6)+ command post 55K6
But also S-400 regimental command post can be used to guide different command post of radar trops of ECM/ECCM and as of lately even aviation component. (still several
order of magnitude less than for instance brigade level command post like Baikal-1M)
Brigade level S-400 integrates radar command post as well as ECM/ECCM command post which also consists of air component command posts and looks something like this.
(2 S-400 regiments per S-400 brigade is max)
And thats all from operational level. From the higher organizational level you have Area defense (few brigades) and Zone defense (few Area defense).
And put all togeather it looks something like this
while the radar troops integrated within AD command post of (in S-400 case in already regimental level from S-300 brigade level) for instance Fundament-1/2/3 command post with
ECM/ECCM command posts AKUP-1/APUR-1
while the radar troops on its own can have quite complex composition too
while retaining the automatic mode of re-desing of the AD structure in case some of its parts are destroyed.
and in case you are interested I can send you (or anyone else for that matter ) "Air Defense Weapons and Electronics Systems of Russia" by Almaz-Antey (2011) where you will find
plentiful of information about the systems you have not even heard of
