Russian troops in the Eastern Military District have received and inducted first of the country's S-300V4 air defense systems.
"This system has arrived for service with the Eastern Military District’s air defense troops for the first time," Eastern Military District said in a statement Friday.
Anti-aircraft personnel of the military district received training to operate the systems at the Kapustin Yar training range earlier this year.
The S-300V4 is an advanced highly mobile air defense missile system designated to protect vital military and administrative facilities and groupings of forces against strikes by ballistic and aerodynamic air attack weapons. This is the fourth version of the upgraded S-300V battlefield anti-aircraft missile system.
