    Finally, as Americans say, the usual routine. Received and received. And that's good.

      These S_400 were intended for Serbia, but they refused (supposedly expensive) and bought Chinese ones.
      In Russia, many important regions still remain uncovered.
      So it's time to think about yourself, and not trade left and right.

    I'm more interested in the fact that the S-400 is already in service with both Turkey and China. And we only have a second regiment, and

      What's in the phrase XNUMXnd regiment this year is incomprehensible?
      Here's the total from wikipedia:
      A total of 27 regiments / 54 divisions / 432 launchers were produced (for the Russian army)


      But about whether this amount is sufficient, you need to ask specialists. But besides 400 there are many other things with different range.

      If the C 300 Regiments have been rearmed, the deployment sites can be a surprise for the enemy.

      There is probably no point in covering the whole country. And of course all important areas will be covered.

        I will express a seditious thought. There are never too many missiles in air defense. We can echelon and echelon air defense, the territory allows.

    So it's time to think about yourself, and not trade right and left

    Left and right ... Only 4 countries bought these systems: China, India, Turkey, Algeria. In the future, possibly Iran. So "trade left-right" is too strong ...

    More often than not, this is no surprise for the adversary. Rearmament is a rather long process. So the enemy has an idea where the rearmament is being carried out ...
