S-400 to be Delivered in 2020 June 28, 2019

Russia's S-400 Triumf missile defence systems will be delivered to India after 2020, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said. Russia and India earlier signed a contract on delivering S-400 Triumf missile defence systems worth $5.43 bln. The United States threatened India with sanctions over purchasing Russian military equipment. "The deliveries of S-400 Triumf missile systems to India are planned to start after 2020, in accordance with the agreement with our partners. Issues with payment have been resolved," the service said.
The integral parts of the S-400 system are:
- One combat control center
- A three-coordinate jam-resistant phased array radar to detect aerial targets 
- Six-eight air defence missile complexes (with up to 12 transporter-launchers, and also a multifunctional four-coordinate illumination and detection radar)
 - A technical support system
- Missile transporting vehicles
- A training simulator
S-400 is a long-and medium-range air defence missile system. It is designed to destroy air attack and reconnaissance means (including stealth aircraft) and any other aerial targets amid intensive counter-fire and jamming.
