Russian anti-aircraft missile troops will soon begin to receive super-maneuverable and tenacious missile defense systems with the new generation ammunition, said spokesperson of the Defense Ministry press service, Colonel Igor Klimov.

“In the near future, the missile defense units will start to receive the S-350 “Vityaz” air defense systems in addition to the S-400s. They are characterized by high maneuverability and survivability, armed with the new missiles with seekers, surpassing the characteristics of the previous generation missile systems,” – said Klimov.

Earlier it was reported that the “Vityaz” system will soon go into service of the missile defense troops, but it wasn’t specified what ammunition anti-aircraft systems would be armed with.
