Russia’s Almaz-Antey arms producer has delivered to the Defence Ministry the first set of the newest S-350 Vityaz long-range air defence missile weapon system, the company said on Monday.

“During the transmission, the equipment was taken to a training ground, where test flights were conducted, involving real aerial targets escort. Acceptance tests have been passed successfully”, Almaz-Antey said in a statement.

The acceptance ceremony was held on Sunday in the country’s southern Astrakhan region.

The S-350 Vityaz is designed to repel massive attacks by modern and prospective air attack weapons. It has a maximum range up to 120 km (around 75 miles) and can hit up to 12 targets on the altitude of 30 km (around 18.5 miles).

It simply uses the 9M96, the “short” range (70 or 120km, depening on version) missile in use for S-300 or S-400 batteries where you have usually a 9M96 quad pack replacing a 48N6 cannister on launchers with usually 4x 48N6 (250km range), and you’ll have a quad-pack installed between the two 400km-ranged 40N6 on their launchers.
