Moscow is negotiating the possibility of supplying the Triumph C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) to a number of countries in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, reports RIA News message of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoigu.


Russia is negotiating new overseas shipments of C-400


Relevant negotiating work is underway,
Shoigu said during a tour of the countries of Southeast Asia.

He recalled that the two C-400 complexes are deployed and "carry round-the-clock combat duty in Syria, providing reliable air defense (HAM) in Hamim and Tartus."

These are unique complexes with tactical and technical characteristics unmatched by anyone in the world. An obvious confirmation of this is the recently concluded contract for the supply of C-400 with the Republic of Turkey, which is a member of NATO,
added Shoigu.

He noted that Russia is ready to share with its partners the experience of using its equipment and weapons in the SAR.

First of all, this, of course, is our combat aviation, technique and weapon Ground Forces, Special Operations Forces and, in a separate place, Russian air defense systems. We are talking not only about such systems as the Pantsir, which were used in Syria, but also about the C-300 and C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems,
said the minister.

He also said that “today, not one of our meetings or negotiations with foreign colleagues from any region of the world can do without discussing the acquisition of Russian weapons.”

Yesterday, the Times of India newspaper, citing a source, said that Moscow and New Delhi had entered the final stage of negotiations on a future contract for the supply of 5 divisions of C-400. The estimated amount of the transaction - about $ 5,5 billion.

C-400 "Triumph" - long-range anti-aircraft missile system. Designed for the destruction of aviation, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range. The range of the C-400 reaches 400 kilometers, it is capable of destroying targets at altitudes up to 30 kilometers. It is in service with the Russian army since 2007.

    Then I wouldn’t have to regret these deliveries, a categorically incorrect decision to sell these weapons to Turkey as a member of NATO and as not a reliable partner.

      Yes, for anything, they insert something like that into our brains so that it does not fly into our planes! What kind of "Koschey" will give up its "egg with a needle inside"?

            The top officials of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the United States are now working as sales managers, traveling around the world and trying to sell military products, competition however ... But the fact that they sell the S-400, there are few options, buyers are needed. money is needed for salaries, maintenance of production, and most importantly for new developments, and brains are probably encoded there))) A sacred place does not exist empty, they will not buy the S-400, they will be acquired by the Patriots. Plus, now the demand is good)).

              It seems to me that they not only sell, but also buy. And they buy it well, the keys to the sky, and even for the seller’s money :)

        Why are some so afraid that we are selling the S-400? Well, you can think about it and understand that these complexes need missiles, which we will also supply. And if we don’t like something, we can stop the supply of missiles at any moment and then the S-400 will turn into useless empty launchers.

    S. Shoigu "pushes" the 400th to Southeast Asia. One thing is not clear - either we impose ourselves, or foreign "comrades" ask us. request

      I think every country would like to have such a system. According to the minister, "the countries of the Middle East region and Southeast Asia have already expressed their interest in purchasing the S-400."

    The division of labor according to Marx. The USA flush F-35 to everyone, and the Russian Federation - S-400, as an antidote to F-35. And everyone is happy.

    The lesson of “Gaddafi” and “Y” did not pass without a trace. The world began to realize that escape from "amero-democratization" is possible only with nuclear weapons, or with powerful air defense (from the "no-fly zone"). American air defense against the Americans is not an option. Therefore, they turned their eyes to the S-400. Since we gladly responded to this request, we can assume that the S-500 is already on the “exhaust”. S-400 has become a rating barometer of countries that disagree with US policy.

    added Shoigu.

    I don’t know how anyone has it, but I have the impression that it is not the business of the RF Minister of Defense to do what the Minister of Industry and Trade, or the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of this industry, or the Prime Minister can and should do.
    Well, it’s not Shoigu’s role to act as a traveling salesman.
    The business of the Russian Ministry of Defense is to ensure the country's security.
    Increase your potential.
    To seek competent support for their own entrusted troops.

    Only if there are no other, mercantile goals behind these negotiations.

      it’s not up to the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation to deal with
      Why not? While in the country on an official visit, why not talk about the advantages of our air defense if they are interested. In the United States, the president of the deal concludes and his supporters credit it to him.

      the acquisition of keys to someone else’s heaven, planting them on our air defense systems is the responsibility of the Defense Ministry.

        the acquisition of keys to someone else's sky
        It's like, like a button, we press at home, and, your, purchased, rockets, became ours again? We reliably covered our sky, how many will be able to destroy targets with their mass, and not episodic appearance, what kind of missiles we have on thousands of cruise ships and thousands of planes of a potential enemy? ... Traders, this would be Stalin thinking who would fly KV and T -34 in 1940 year, who would have bought new anti-aircraft guns and airplanes from us, at first to "dear customers", their own army will wait. Now, when we have so many new weapons that we no longer need, then sell the new ones, doing for yourself the newest, change your good for the best. When monopolists essentially remain enterprises, when they produce pieces per year, and not hundreds per month, to ship their production with orders for an "uncle" over the hill, it is nonsense, if not sabotage and sabotage their defenses. Moreover, if such “allies”, like the People's Republic of China, have already stripped off and are producing clones C-300 and Su-27 (as well as many other things from our tanks, machine guns and missiles), sell them C-400 and Su-35, not a great mind is a matter of foresight. You can giggle at patriots about the quality of these clones, about their competition, but, most importantly, when there is a dozen or a hundred of them on one of our tanks or aircraft, a rocket, it will not be so funny, especially since all this is not to the shores of the USA can go as well to our empty border. And, is it worth helping to train the Chinese soldiers, transferring to them the command and staff experience, management and methods of our units in joint exercises, they need it, they greedily absorb everything, and what do we get from this for defense from such "friends"? Probably, the assurances of friendship, and the fact that they will be less offended when they have territorial claims against all ...

    Almaz-Antey becomes just a pockmarked hen laying golden eggs. And the amounts are BASIC! The cost of these systems (for us) is lower, the larger the production ...

    Arms trading is a very profitable business! It is necessary to build more factories and military schools. This is an increase in the budget and the training of professional personnel.
