21st April 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russia’s Aerospace Force and Navy are set to receive additional self-propelled S-350 'Vityaz' missile defence systems which the Defence Ministry’s Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper reports will increase capabilities fourfold.

The S-350 is manufactured by Almaz-Antey and is capable of neutralising targets within a maximum range of 60km and at an altitude of 30km and offers protection against aerodynamic and ballistic threats.

Each S-350 unit can be armed with up to 12 9M96E2 SAMs capable of reaching speeds of 1,945kt. Shephard’s Defence Insight shows that each SAM weighs 420kg.

Initial delivers of the system were confirmed in December 2019 with the Aerospace Defence Military Academy also receiving a batch in early 2020.
