The S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system (ZRK) surpasses, especially after the 40N6 and S-350 Vityaz missiles are used in service, in terms of the range of targets, but inferior in terms of ammunition and mobility, the Military Industrial Courier reports.
The newspaper asks a question about the expediency of taking the Vityaz S-350 into service, if at present there is an intensive replacement of the S-300 Favorit with the S-400 Triumph in the Russian Armed Forces, and the combination of the S-400 Triumph and anti-aircraft the Pantsir-S1 missile-cannon complex (ZRPK) "ensures the destruction of targets at a distance from 400 kilometers to several hundred meters."
The answer suggests the publication to look for, paying attention to the military unit, which the first will receive the S-350 "Vityaz" – the 24th mobile air defense missile brigade. “Her task is to protect objects on the territory of several constituent entities of the Russian Federation, in particular, the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Khakassia. On alarm, the brigade divisions move to designated areas and begin to cover them. With a huge area of Western and Eastern Siberia, not everything can be protected with modern S-400, ”writes“ Military Industrial Courier. ”
The newspaper is confident that the S-350 "Vityaz" at the expense of the chassis on the basis of the Voshchina tractor can easily move off-road. “Therefore, it will be very difficult for an opponent to track and calculate their movement,” the newspaper notes.
The Military-Industrial Courier draws attention to the fact that the Russian air defense system being created “does not have a clear separation, as experts often indicate,” and “will be as flexible and tailored as possible under the operational situation”.
In May, the Defense Blog, citing sources in the Russian Defense Ministry, reported that the military was looking for a more advanced and cost-effective system that would replace the “problem” Pantsir-C1.
In April, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko announced the start of production of the Vityaz S-350.
ZRK S-350 "Vityaz" is equipped with two types of missiles. 9M100 is designed to hit aerodynamic and ballistic objects at a distance of about 120 kilometers, moving at speeds of up to 4.8 kilometers per second. 9M96 is capable of intercepting low-flying targets at speeds up to a kilometer per second, for example, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and warhead patrols that are 15 kilometers away from the air defense missile system.
