An air defence missile unit of the Russian armed forces’ Eastern Military District (MD) Air and Air Defence Army located in the Primorsky Krai has been rearmed with the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 13 November.
Four air defence regiments were rearmed with the S-400 in 2016 and another four regiments are scheduled to be equipped in 2017. This will see several units equipped with the S-400 SAM systems for combat duty in the Eastern MD.
The S-400 is a long-range surface-to-air missile system. The system is designed to defeat all modern and prospective air and space weapons, various aircraft, tactical and operational ballistic missiles, hypersonic targets and jammers.
