“It should be noted that the work on developing the S-500 mobile air defense and anti-ballistic missile system is scheduled to be completed in 2021”

Aerospace Force Deputy Commander-in-Chief Lieutenant-General Andrei Yudin reported on Defense Ministry’s Krasnaya Zvezda news agency.

Russian Defense Minister said that the deliveries of the latest S-500 surface-to-air missile systems to the troops would begin in 2020.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said at the Army-2020 international arms show that the S-500 system was already undergoing trials and work was underway to purchase parts for its serial production.

The deputy said in 2019 that the preliminary tests of the S500 antiaircraft missile system would begin in 2020 and the start of its serial deliveries to the army will start in 2025.

Russia’s new missile system struck the target at a range of 500 km more compared to any existing rival missile system.
