Russian Air Force will receive Almaz-Antey developed vityaz-350 super-maneuverable missile systems equipped with next generation munitions, by next year.
A Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Igor Klimov told RIA Novosti news agency Tuesday that the S-350 Vityaz missiles that are scheduled to enter the service in 2016 are more maneuverable and boast self-homing warheads of a new generation.
The S-350E Vityaz (Knight) is a short-to-mid range air defense missile system developed since 2009 for providing point defense against aircraft and precision attacks. The aircraft is built to replace the ageing S-300PS, which was made in the early 1980s.
The mid-range guided missile system is compatible with 9M100 and 9M96E / 9M96M missiles manufactured by Fakel Design Bureau.
Russia’s airspace is currently protected by S-400 Triumf and S-300 Favorit missiles, and Pantsir-S short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery system.
