“A transport vessel with the first batch of hardware from the second S-400 regiment set for China has taken to the sea from the port of Ust-Luga on the Baltic coast. Therefore, as in the case with Turkey, the deliveries of the systems have started several months ahead of the term stipulated in the contract,” the source said.

The delivery of the complete S-400 batch to China envisions “involving no less than three vessels” that will take to the sea one by one “within short time intervals,” the source added.

China is the first international customer of Russia’s most advanced S-400 ‘Triumf’ surface-to-air missile systems. Russia signed a contract with China on the delivery of two regiment sets of S-400 air defence missile systems in 2014.

The first regiment set of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems was delivered to China in the spring of 2018. The Chinese military successfully test-fired the missile launchers from the first S-400 regiment set, striking an aerodynamic and a ballistic target at its firing ranges.
