Western experts explained the popularity of C-400

51
In recent years, Moscow has concluded several major contracts for the supply of C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to foreign customers, the portal writes Business Insider.




As the authors note, in addition to Russia itself, these systems are already in service with such countries as Belarus, Algeria and China.

Some of the most powerful states are climbing out of their way to get Russian anti-aircraft systems, the article says.

Experts clarify that in the coming years, deliveries of C-400 ZRS systems are also planned for India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, Turkish leader Recep Erdogan has already expressed interest in acquiring C-500 systems, which are still under development.

At the same time, the portal emphasizes that, by investing money in the development and production of air defense systems, Russia “invested where it was needed”.

These installations turned out to be so desirable because technically they are far superior to their American counterparts, the authors explain and add that Moscow has long invested in this weaponto overtake the United States in this area.

According to the director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, Ruslan Pukhov, who is quoted by the publication, experts all over the world know how highly developed Russian air defense systems are. The head of the center noted that the USSR always lagged behind the United States in the field of combat aircraft, therefore, more and more invested in anti-aircraft defense. Due to this, Russia, in particular, still lives, he added.

Earlier, the German media wrote that the C-400 ZRS was the “export hit” of Moscow on the world market, as they are a weighty trump card in the dialogue with Washington.

            No fleet? What about SSBNs? What about the Strategic Missile Forces?
            Americans shit come against Russia for the only reason - in the world there is only one country that can destroy the United States in dust. And this is Russia. Similarly, the USSR had even greater opportunities for the destruction of the United States - now, after all, the SALT agreements have already been implemented. And only counted how many times the parties are able to destroy each other. Like that - the USSR, the USA six times, and the USA, the USSR only four - and the USSR has more territory, and the population is not so compactly located.

        There are matches in the functionality and design of some objects. Just to compare, what our designers did, with those that their designers did, is stupid.
        There is a need to perform a specific function, design decisions can be very similar or not, there was no exchange of technical documentation, that's a fact!

                Then why is the Indian not the President of the United States? But because the Anglo-Saxons conquered America, bought Manhattan for trinkets.To understand the origin of the Anglo-Saxons, you need to think about how Ragnar Lothbrok conquered England in the Viking Age, which the British themselves call the Dark Ages. See the documentary series "Vikings", in which, on the basis of DNA analysis, scientists in England proved the ethnogenesis of the Anglo-Saxons, and ethnogenesis is a war, robbery and violence, that is. they kill males and rape females, from which the mestizos are born - the current Anglo-Saxons living in Anlia and the USA.

                    You argue with full Anglo-Saxon stereotypes, but you probably will not deny DNA analysis if you have your own children, for example, males, through which the Y chromosome is transmitted from father to son through many generations. DNA analysis must be confirmed by the history of the wars that resulted in the ethnogenesis of the people in question, i.e. Have some tribes raped in the past? Then the age of the people, according to the processed DNA, falls on the date of the war, in this case the Dark Ages for the British or the Viking Age for the conquerors, one of which was William I the Conqueror, who brought England to its knees in 1066.
