“The Missile Defense Troops started receiving prospective S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft systems. The delivery of S-500 Prometei systems is also planned,” Babakov said when asked what types of prospective weaponry the troops expected to receive in coming years.

Babakov said that apart from aerodynamic and ballistic targets, S-500 systems can detect and destroy hypersound weapons of all modifications, including in the near space. “This gives us grounds to say that this system has no rivals,” Babakov said.
