Russia Deployed S-300 4 December, 2019

The Soviet Union began working on the S-300 semi-mobile system in 1967 to replace the S-25 Berkut (NATO code: SA-1 Guild) air defence missiles. The modernized variant of the system S-300PM2, which is currently in the inventory of countries such as China, Greece and India, has gone on combat alert in the Voronezh Region in Russia’s southwest.

Under Russia’s program of rearmament with upgraded types of military hardware, the air defence missile regiment received S-300PM2. Thus, the system has increased its range of striking aerodynamic targets to 200 km and ballistic weapons to 40 km and the altitude of hitting adversary targets to 30 km.
