New Footage Shows Russia’s S-300V Anti-Missile System Operating In Donbass

Illustrative image.

The Russian military has been relying on the unique S-300V air-defense system to counter the warplanes and more importantly tactical ballistic missiles of Kiev forces since the beginning of its special military operation in Ukraine.

On May 25, TV Zevsda released a video report documenting the operation of the long-range air-defense system in an unspecified part of the Donbass region.

The 9K81 S-300V system varies from the other designs in the S-300 series. It was designed to provide defense against aircraft, cruise missiles and more importantly ballistic missiles. The system is carried on tracked MT-T transporters, which gives it greater cross-country mobility.Because the S-300V places a greater emphasis on the anti-ballistic missile (ABM) mission, a dedicated ABM phased array radar dubbed the 9S19 was developed for the system.

The S-300V can be armed with the 9M83 missile that has a maximum engagement range of around 75 kilometers, or the larger 9M82 ABM-capable missile which can engage targets out to 100 kilometers and up to altitudes of around 32 kilometers.

Russia has already developed three modernized versions of the S-300V with longer ranges, the S-300VM, the S-300VMD and the S-300V4.

The S-300V system have reportedly intercepted dozens of OTR-21 Tochka tactical ballistic missiles which were launched by Kiev forces at Russian forces and residential areas in Donbass since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine.

The ABM-capable system will likely continue to play a key defensive role in the Russian special military operation, especially with recent reports suggesting that the West is planning to arm Kiev forces with heavy launch system that can be armed with tactical ballistic missile like the US-made M270 MLRS and M142 HIMARS.

Why do you insist on proving how unintelligent you are?

Have some compassion. His brain is not fully developed.


Don’t cry because your less intelligent nation still cannot develop Hypersonic missiles for some time,lol

You have to tell me how much they pay you. You are on every posting… your comments are useless and you keep posting and posting. Yet I cannot post on CNN, BBCNews, Foxnews etc

How is that? Why are the “free countries” unable to accept comments on their news sites?

You come to a lone site allowing everyone to post and insult our intelligence.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Use your position to inform the Ukranians they do not have to throw away their lives…. they can live long. The White Caucasian race is systematically being wiped off the earth. Soon you will have only colored and brown people running around. Is this what you want????


It’s crazy that you call out a troll and proceed to extend your comment with the vile stain of racism. You’re next on the denazification list little tiki torch wielding basement dweller. Only sixteen percent of the world is “white Caucasian race”, whatever that means. You faggots need to pick up a book and open your mind, the 84% of the world that isn’t white just wants NATO and their lapdogs to stop interfering in ‘colored’ country’s internal affairs. Do you know why there are millions of Arabs in Europe? You’ve destabilized their entire region by inciting civil wars and overthrowing governments. Do you know why millions of Hispanics are flooding the US? You’ve been destabilizing and overthrowing their governments for decades and have been sending trillions of dollars in illegal drug money to the criminal organizations in their countries. Do you know why there are millions of black people in the USA? They were brought over as slaves dumbass. Don’t start with that stupid black people enslave black people first or Jews shipped them over either, no one gives a fuck how it happened only how it continued and the culture of hate that was built around it. Racism is a vile, juvenile, moronic, and medieval concept. I dare any of you delusional and brainwashed wannabe revolutionaries to post a Biblical verse that justifies hatred based on one’s skin color. You talk about God and family values all the time, right?

Muhammad your Prophet is possibly sitting naked in front of the computer and gets more sexually aroused by seeing red down votes.

We will see him on this page soon with his sick comments.

If we stop paying attention to him, he will move on to another forum.

Mentally ill people can find joy in abnormalities.

The same anti-missile system is deployed at Russia s Tartus base & Kaliningrad and undermines NATO,s ability to deter Russia from protecting Syria . Purchased by several countries


It’s S-300V with caterpillar chassis for moving in same rows with ground forces. Their main targets are ballistic missiles. Object defense in Tartus and Hmeimim is secured by S-400 and S-300PM2 (granted to army of Syria), which has wheeled chassis, more combat radius and planes as main targets.


Has it ever shot down anything?

Russia seems to have a good track record with air defense systems. Given how many countries around the world want to buy their systems must be a good indicator. Their various systems seem to be performing well in Ukraine.


Well done Putin and Russia for planning so well for this military operation, that has turned into a war by NATO nations against you. Anyone can see just how Russia is promoting self DEFENCE, with regard to their weapons and how the US UK NATO are more interested in weapons of offence. I have always appreciated those who stand up to bullies and Russia has stood up to the bullies of the LPS DPR and the US UK EU and NATO, one third of our world. Keep courage with you and thank you for humiliating and weakening the warmongers of our world. Please keep it up because God is with you and you CAN defeat them.


LPR not LPS.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
