Ukrainian firm LUCH unveiled a concept of a new mid-range air defense system, called the SD-300, at the Arms and Security exhibition being held in Kyiv from June 15-18.

The SD-300 surface-to-air missile system is designed to intercept various threats such as air-to-ground missiles, helicopters, aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), guided bombs, and tactical ballistic missiles up to 100km. It can be used to destroy ground (surface) radar-contrasting moving targets, Defence Blog reported Tuesday.

The missile is armed with a 60 kg warhead with a proximity fuse. It features an active radar terminal homing guidance system and measures 7.13m in length and 750kg in weight. SD-300’s missile has a body diameter of 300mm.

Each SD-300 air-defense missile system reportedly will consist of 3 launchers with 4 missiles, enabling a simultaneous strike against 8 (6) aerodynamic or ballistic targets.
