    "At the Ashuluk practice range in the Astrakhan Region, the teams of an anti-aircraft missile regiment from the Leningrad air defence unit of the Western Military District live-fired S-400 'Triumph' surface-to-air missiles against air targets... During their combat duty, they detected and struck target missiles that simulated the nominal enemy's modern and future air attack weapons", the statement from the military reads.

    The Ministry of Defense spoke about plans for the supply of S-400

    MOSCOW, May 8 - RIA Novosti. The Russian Defense Ministry plans to conclude a state contract with industry for the annual supply of S -400 anti-aircraft missile system (ZRS) to the troops by 2024 , said Deputy Minister of Defense Alexei Krivoruchko .

    "In 2020, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will receive S-400 long-range air defense systems, a new state contract for the annual supply of this system until 2024 is under preparation," Krivoruchko told the National Defense magazine

    All these S-400 systems will be upgraded to S-500 standards later on. No, they will not have all of the functionality of the
    S-500, but they will likely be able to use ABM canisters. A real ABM system needs to have a vast number of launchers
    to be effective. A few boutique S-500 systems is not going to cut it.

    I rather expect the S-500 system will consist of customised very long range radars able to look up as well as a long way away, but also much larger missile cannisters to hold the bigger longer ranged missiles.

    The S-500 will never operate on its own as a separate battery, I suspect a regiment of S-500 missiles will be attached to an S-400 battery along with the extra radar and control vehicles a bit like an S-350 can be attached to provide shorter range numbers defence from cruise missile attack.

    I suspect S-500 will be attached to S-400 batteries near major cities and naval ports and major airfields first along with strategic asset locations too, and the navalised version will also be fitted to Cruisers, aircraft carriers, and possibly down to destroyer sized ships so they have more than a dozen ships with them.

    Of course being fully mobile they could be sent to where they are needed by aircraft or ship... a battery in Cuba would be interesting... Smile

    That's just being provocative Laughing

    Even a few second hand S-300PMU would send the Yanks bonkers.

    It is an option to make them take notice... the fact that the INF treaty was a good thing for their EU allies meant nothing in the end... it is important to know which buttons to push and to have such buttons ready when needed.

    You get through to the spoilt kid by finding out what matters to them and then using your control of that thing to control them.

    They love KFC then behave for a month and we can go...
