Ukraine S-300PS missile system overhauled

8th September 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UkrOboronProm has delivered the S-300PS surface-to-air missile (SAM) system back to the Ukrainian Air Force following modernisation and overhaul work.

According to the company, the overhaul will extend the system’s service life by seven years, and brings the equipment up to NATO-equivalent standards.

The S-300PS is a long range SAM originally designed during the Soviet period; both Russia and Ukraine have continued to independently develop the system since the end of the Cold War.

Director General Roman Romanov said: ‘Today the State Concern specialists cooperate closely with the military – together we improve military equipment, taking into account [the] experience of using it on the frontline.’
