Russian Armed Forces will receive S-500 SAMs earlier than originally announced


The state armament program provided that testing of the new S-500 "Prometheus" air defense systems will begin this year, and by 2025 they will go into service with the army. But the pace of work allowed changes to be made, so the troops will receive complexes much earlier than the announced deadlines.


This was told by Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko in his article published in a corporate publication "Radio electronic technology" concern with the same name.

The deputy minister said that in the air defense missile defense forces of the Russian Federation last year tests of the latest systems were successfully carried out, so in 2020 they can begin to be transferred to the armed forces of the country.

Krivoruchko says that in the world there are no weapons systems whose characteristics could be compared with the S-500 Prometheus. The range of target destruction by missiles of this complex is over 480 kilometers, which exceeds the range of the most advanced foreign counterparts. This result was shown by tests.

The main purpose of the new systems is to counter medium-range ballistic missiles, as well as ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles).

The possibility of acquiring the S-500 has already become interested in Turkey, as stated by the President of this country, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

      Yes, how much can be shifted. They said last year that deliveries would begin in the 20th year (though there were also a lot of interim deadlines before this date) and it suddenly became clear that, if it was absolutely right, not in the 20th but at 25. Good. that you change your mind, God forbid, finally.

          If only it did not work out, as with the S-400. For ten years he stood with old missiles and only last year 40H6 brought to mind, and then, with the characteristics below the planned. And 9M96 is still not massively introduced into the BC.

      Spit three times. So far, these are only plans and rejoice too early. How many times was it that there were many reasons and plans shifted. That's when the delivery of complexes to the troops begins, then we will be glad.

        therefore, in 2020, they can begin to transfer them to the armed forces of the country.

        One gets the feeling that in a hurry.

        Last year, the first set was handed over to the training center, and this year plans to begin deliveries to the troops. They talked about this a year ago. Once the first set went and was successfully tested, then it is time for the troops. We will wait for deliveries to the troops - we will rejoice, perhaps at the end of this year.

      Of course range. Surely a new rocket has appeared. The “extreme” public development, 40H6E, is located on the S-400, with a range of 380 km. And on the S-500 "over 480km."
      The S-500 is most likely a missile defense system, according to what is written. Medium-range ballistic missiles and ICBMs. S-400 "is designed to destroy all modern and promising air-space attack systems."
      Surely the electronics is different. The radar should further “see” with the ability to recognize the target. hi

    It is reported that Erdogan seemed to be interested in the S - 500, this sworn "friend" holding a curved dagger behind his back, categorically cannot sell this complex, as in principle, to no one else !!! It's time to finally think with your head, and not with corrupt jo ... Mi, what you can trade with and what you can't! First of all, we need to rearm our own aircraft and air defense, and then, when our scientists come up with something more advanced, and the industry makes and transfers the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, then we can think who can sell these complexes !!! Look how he behaved earlier, in relation to the Russian Federation and how now, this newly-minted Turkish “Pasha” is behaving ?! What is Syria and Crimea with Ukraine worth! In fact, he is an enemy! And ours are shaking before him !!! They crap in us, but ours only wipe themselves and humiliate themselves !!! Yes, and enemies, from the 5th column in the Russian Federation, it would be time to actively identify and neutralize !!!

    They like different surprises in Russia (especially in armaments) in Russia .. Everyone all whines, they all disappeared, but weakly Russian .. And then they put the hop on combat duty (Vanguards, for example .. Or in the same Crimea and Syria .. I think the S-500 is already in the series, it's growing silent ..

    The tension in the world is growing right before our eyes. And therefore, the air defense and anti-missile defense must be brought to perfection, preferably with 100% reliability, although this is unfortunately unattainable.

    Let Erdogan decide for himself and for us: Whose Crimea is he? It will depend on his answer: he will receive (maybe!) The S-500 or ... will be smoked. And the way he was saved from the coup is so "dear friend Vladimir", and how to stir up 50 million in arms with Kiev is the "illegal annexation of Crimea."

    It was supposed to be transferred in 2025, but then "suddenly" decided to transfer in 2020? So, how at one time they transferred to the S-400 troops without a 40N6 long-range missile, which was transferred to the troops in 10 years ???
    Such acceleration of transmission speaks only about one thing. Some missiles are not yet available and will not be in the next year or two. And the S-500 will be delivered in a state "reduced" by the nomenclature of missiles ...

    Well, the S-400 is also sposogben to intercept the ballistic missile with a launch range of 3500 km. At a distance of 60 km, it was originally planned to introduce a missile defense system into the complex. Therefore, one can really call it the air defense system. But what will be capable of intercepting ICBMs is “tormented by doubts”
