5 sets of S-500 to be delivered to Russian Aerospace forces by 2020 (who knows what sets means ??
1. First S-500 to go to troops in few years
2. Testing on examples begun
3. Everything else in known to us (7000m/sec max target (hypersonic, ballistic, cruise) speed, 800-900km detection range, unification with A-135)
Russian arm with five S-500 2020
but what is important at this point of time is that first examples already exist and are proceded for testing (so S-500 is not on the paper anymore)
Test items newest C-500 air defense system began in RussiaC-500 is a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems "land-to-air." It is a universal set of long-range and high-altitude interception with increased potential missile defense and is able to intercept ballistic missiles.The system is capable of hitting not only ballistic missiles, but also aerodynamic targets (aircraft, helicopters, and other aerial targets), as well as cruise missiles.and also interesting thing:"Until the end of 2013 the troops go regimental EKR set of S-400, which will be deployed in the Moscow region. And also in the air defense brigades of troops ASD go about 18 combat vehicles ZRPK "Armour-S" radar complexes "Sky-M" radar "approaching", "Sopka" - said Golovko.
As the representative of the Ministry of Defense to the troops EKR Colonel Dmitry Zenin November 27, six combat vehicles "Armour-S" (out of 18) have already entered service and fulfilled the task of initial firings at the site "Ashuluk" in Astrakhan region.
Now the battle of the troops are EKR antiaircraft missile system of medium-range S-300PM, advanced anti-aircraft missile systems, large and medium-range S-400 "Triumph", ZRPK "Armour-S" radar "Gamma", "sky-SVU" complexes of automation "foundation."
so this means:
1. During 2013 Russian ASD troops will receive 18 Pancir-S1 (12 delivered if I counted correctly and 6 jet to be delivered)
2. New regimental S-400 set (we know from previous articles that 2 regimental S-400 sets will be delivered)
3. New deliveries of NEBO-M radar sets that each of them go with each of regimental S-400 set
4. New regimental sets with S-400 system is comprised of:
- S-400 (regiment)
- S-300 Favorit (modernized PM to Favorit standard and most likely regimental set also) with 96L6 radar per battery
- NEBO-SVU/GAMMA-S1/ attached radar units
- Fundament - radar automation system
Than we have many more interesting news:
-> And again before the end of 2013, 5 more sets of (unsepcified) all altitude radar detection systems will be delivered to radar troops
Five new radar systems will go on until the end of the year EKR
-> 86 exercises of ASD troops planed for 2014
