Russia 'Processing' Ten S-400 Triumf Orders
S-400 Air Defense System

Russia is processing ten orders for deliveries of S-400 Triumf missile systems customers around the the world

Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) is currently working on about 10 orders for deliveries of S-400 missile systems amid the generally significant interest in Russian air defense systems, the organization's Director Dmitry Shugaev was quoted as saying by various local media Monday.

"We are seeing significant demand for air defense systems: about 10 orders for S-400 Triumf alone are currently being processed," Shugaev said.

The head of the agency said that aircraft made up 50 percent of the exports and Russia was hoping to see exports of land forces equipment grow to represent more than 30 percent of the total.

The agency intended to work on increasing the exports of navy equipment and on improving maintenance services it offered its customers, Shugaev added.

The FSMTC director said he was hoping for a "positive outcome" in Russian-Turkish talks on deliveries of S-400 systems to be reached soon.

Last week, Russia and Turkey have finished negotiating where Moscow would sell Ankara its advanced S-400 air and missile defense system. However, the final decision would be made by the executive committee of Turkey’s defense industry, Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said on Aug. 25.
