The “Almaz-Ante”, manufactures of missiles and precision devices, handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defence the first batch of “S-350E Vityaz” missiles
A source in the company’s press office said: “Our organization has delivered the Russian army, the first group of air Defence batteries, the S-350E Vityaz.”
The S-350E Vityaz missiles, a medium-range missile Defence system, are designed to combat various air targets and ballistic missiles and will gradually replace the S-300 and Buk-M systems.
The new system is smaller than the S-400 system and cheaper than it. It has all the capabilities of the S-300 system and can fight a close battle without securing additional coverage with the Panzer or Tor missiles.
