Russia’s air defense unit Central Military District will begin operating S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems in November this year.

"In November this year, S-400 air defense missile systems will be supplied to another air defense military unit of the Central Military District stationed in the Volga region. Earlier, for the first time, a military unit deployed in the Siberian region was re-equipped with similar systems in 2016," the head of the district's technical support department, Maj. Gen. Fraiz Salyyev, told Sputnik Tuesday.

The S-400 is a next-generation Russian air defense system. It carries three different types of missiles, capable of destroying aerial targets at short-to-extremely-long ranges. It is designed to track and destroy various types of aerial targets, from reconnaissance aircraft to ballistic missiles.
