Turkey’s official news agency quoted President Erdogan as saying that Moscow had offered Ankara a loan to purchase the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems on a “very nominal rates.” “During the second and third phase, we will proceed to the joint production of the S-500 systems,” Erdogan added.

Is Pakistan Seeking The S400 Missile Defence System from Russia?

Reports suggest that the S-500 will have a range of 600 kilometers for the anti-ballistic missile variant and 400 kilometers for the air defense version. The system is also said to be capable of hitting up to 10 ballistic targets at a time, which implies that the system will be best suited to counter ballistic missiles with a launch range of 3500 kms. The S-500 is expected to offer considerable upgrades over the S-400, Russia’s current flagship air defence system.

S-500 vs S-400 Anti-Missile System

The S-500, as EurAsian Times reported earlier, will not a continuation of the S-300 and the S-400 series, but a completely new complex, created from scratch with completely new radar, a new computer system and new missiles. The primary operating mode in the S-500 will be automatic and the complex will require minimal intervention from the operator.

After S-400, Russia Prepares to Launch S-500 Air Defence System

Assessing by reports leaking from the Internet, the S-500 Missile will be able to hit both ballistic targets, including intercontinental missiles, as well as aerodynamic targets like fighter jets and cruise missiles. The S-500 Complex will also be equipped with an anti-ballistic missile to destroy ballistic targets, and will be capable of hitting targets at altitudes over 100 kilometers, but how much higher is still now known.
