C-400 "Triumph" will take up combat duty in March


As ARMS-TASS reported yesterday from St. Petersburg, the Triumph C-400 air defense system will soon take up combat duty in the Western Military District.

As the commander of the ZVO troops, Colonel-General A. Bakhin, stated, these complexes have already been received. In a month it is supposed to officially announce their interception on combat duty. It should be noted that this is one of the first divisions of the C-400, transferred to the troops. Bakhin said that C-400 was tested at county test sites.

S-400 air defense system is designed to destroy reconnaissance aircraft, aircraft - jammers, strategic and tactical aircraft aviation, medium-range ballistic missiles, tactical and tactical ballistic missiles, hypersonic targets and other means of air attack. Compared with the characteristics of the S-300 predecessor, the new air defense system has enhanced tactical and technical capabilities - both in terms of efficiency, area, and the variety of targets hit. According to open sources, one such complex includes up to twelve anti-aircraft missile launchers.

      Here I watched an interview with the chief technologist of the NPO Almaz-Antey and the conclusions are not entirely happy. The technological process for the production of such missiles as 48N6E, 48N6E2, 48N6EZ, 9M96E2, 40N6E was almost two years, that is, the plants had to be laid down at least 5 years ago in order to get the products now .

    I read many articles about new weapons developments, but I am especially pleased when these developments really come into service.

    Good but not enough. The volume of production needs to be urgently increased. Time is turbulent.

    Ineffective and earlier patrolling the airspace of the Baltic republics with NATO airplanes completely lost all meaning, now they can be shot down from Russian territory right on takeoff from an air base in Lithuania ...

    I did not often communicate with Europeans, but with the Yankees even less often but (they differ) I managed to see an inborn fear in their eyes, by golly I could consider it. From a tested sense of joy, I laughed very loudly in his face, he understood me without saying a word. So, what I wanted to say is that everyone who is born on the territory of Russia has a sense of winner, which was always supported by weapons. The windy Yankees and their sloths are very much afraid of our favorite missiles of their own. So you don’t need to stop, you need to do even more, and most importantly, better. And the rights of GDP in this matter, the question of economy is somewhat uncorrect. In short, every resident of Russia on a rocket and with HOLIDAY!

    All of course is very good. But I hope they do not stop there. And they will replace the old air defense systems with new ones. If memory serves me like for the S-400 is already experiencing (in Cap-Yar) a new rocket?

    The news, of course, is simply gorgeous, the soul rejoices !!
    That's just that recently, such news is "jambs" - there are so many of them that even somehow it becomes scary - isn't it a snag ??? And then in recent years they have become so accustomed to the negative that such a positive is perceived with caution, and the elections are just around the corner - isn't it somehow connected? But I still want to believe that the usual accumulation of "critical mass" has occurred and now such news, and most importantly - such events, will be constant, so to speak "everyday" and habitual !!! HAPPY HOLIDAY, MEN !!!!

    Bigger, faster, everywhere! So that the flyers of "friendly" countries, because of RESPECT for the S-400, would patrol outside their zone of operation, and there would be no such zones. I sincerely congratulate everyone on the Day of the Defender of the Fatherland !!! drinks

    Ideally, the whole country should be surrounded by these complexes as an answer to the US missile defense.
