The S-300PM-2 Favorit air defense system is designed for highly effective defense of administrative, industrial and military installations against massive attacks by modern and promising aircraft, strategic cruise missiles, tactical and operational-tactical ballistic missiles and other means of air attack, including non-strategic ballistic missiles , in the entire range of heights and speeds of their combat use.
C-300PM-2 is a further development of C-300 systems. Combat capabilities increased due to the creation of a new missile that has increased effectiveness in hitting ballistic targets at ranges up to 40 km, providing for undermining the combat charge of the target, increasing the far boundary of the zone of destruction of aerodynamic targets to 200 km, including when firing after it, expanding the information capabilities of the command post systems for the detection and tracking of ballistic targets while maintaining the sector for detecting aerodynamic targets.
