A new division set of S-400 Triumph air defense system has undergone tests and will soon be put on combat duty in the Republic of Crimea, the press service of Russia’s Southern Military District said on November 28.

“In the near future, the new system will enter combat duty to defend Russia’s airspace, replacing the previous air defense system,” the press service said adding that the equipment is being prepared to be transported by rail to a permanent base.

Previously, the division set successfully conducted the first shooting exercises at a firing range in southern the Astrakhan Region.

On November 27, videos and photos appeared online showing that Russia is also deploying the Bal coastal defense missile system armed with Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missiles near the Kerch Strait.

The deployment of the new defense systems comes in the wake of rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia over the November 25 incident in the Black Sea.

    Crimea is becoming the mother of A2/ADs.
    It is pathetic NATO does not realize this reality and parades ships that will become dead weight at the bottom of the Black Sea in case of an armed flare up.

        It appears that the UK needs more War Graves to keep interest in the annual Cenotaph parades for Brits who died in wars.

    Great job. Next year S-500 Prometheus is becoming operational too. Russia needs to ring its borders with SAM and land based missile systems and also arm its Iranian and Syrian allies with similar systems. Just the 1980’s upgraded S-300 grounded the whole Zionist cowards airforce, imagine what S-400 and 500 will do. The S-500 has no equal in air defence history so far. These S-400 in Crimea are the latest versions with a range of 400 kms plus and can shut down the Black Sea and cover Russian bases in Moldova from where they can cover all of puppet Romania.
