Recently there has been held tactical training of gunners in the Russian Far East. The main task was to negate an air attack of an imaginary enemy. All main actions wereperformed inside the special cabin – command and control point.
S-400 “Triumph” is the modern means of air defence in Russia. These anti-aircraft missile systems have been on duty in the Primorye region for half a year already. We are going to have a closer view of the best anti-aircraft missile and gun systems standing guard over the Russian boudaries.
The missilers successfully fulfill all necessary tasks defending the air space of the region.
The military unit received S-400 “Triumph” and “Pantsir-S” anti-aircraft missile and gun systems last year. They fully guarantee the safety of the air borders in the Russian Far East.
The S-400 uses 3 different missiles to cover its entire performance envelope. These are the extremely long range 40N6, long range 48N6 and medium range 9M96 missile. Each one has different capabilities.
The S-400’s radar is capable of tracking over 100 targets at ranges of over 600 km (370 mi), and engaging up to twelve of these targets at varying ranges, depending on the missile used.
Each air defence missile system provides simultaneous firing of up to 36 targets with aiming at them with 72 missiles.
