Russia and Saudi Arabia continue talks on a contract to supply Russia’s S-400 Triumf missile systems, CEO of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheyev has said at the IDEX 2019.
The S-400 Triumf is the most advanced long-range air defence missile system that went into service in Russia in 2007. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and can also be used against ground objectives.
The S-400 can engage targets at a distance of 400 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.
Deputy Commander of Russia’s Aerospace Force Viktor Gumenny said last April that Russia S-400 air defence systems had begun receiving missiles capable of destroying targets in the near space.
