RUSSIA: The newest Russian S-500 Prometheus air defense system has been put into mass production. It will be delivered to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in accordance with contracts concluded with the Ministry of Defense.
The CEO of the Almaz-Antey concern Yan Novikov confirmed that “batch production of the S-500 system has been organized using the latest achievements of domestic science and technology. The combat capabilities of this system significantly exceed the capabilities of previously created air defense systems and air defense systems.”
The first sample of a promising S-500 entered service with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in October 2021. The complex was placed at the disposal of the 1st Air Defense and Special Purpose Missile Defense Army and was deployed for the defense of the capital.
The second set should enter the troops this year.
According to Mr Novikov, the promising S-500 significantly surpasses its predecessors, including the S-400 system. However, most of the characteristics of the S-500 Prometheus complex are strictly classified. According to some reports, the promising complex is able to destroy hypersonic targets and even hit vehicles in low Earth orbit.
