Almaz-Antey CEO Yan Novikov has said that "the works related to the preparations for the delivery of S-400 Triumf antiaircraft missile systems to the defense ministry this year are planned to be finished ahead of schedule: the 12th, 13th and 14th regiment sets of this system will arrive for the Russian Defense Ministry until the end of September 2016 while the 15th and the 16th sets will be delivered in October 2016," TASS reported quoting the press office as saying.
