Russia's S-500 Missile Defense System Has Entered State Trials, Can Hit Targets In Space

Russia’s latest S-500 anti-aircraft missile system has entered state trials, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said on August 24th, at the Army-2020 forum.

“The fact is that state trials have begun and today the S-500 configuration, its simplified configuration is already available and work is underway to purchase parts for its serial production,” the deputy prime minister said.

Back in February 2020, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said that military specialists had held the trials of the world’s unrivaled surface-to-air missiles for the latest S-500 air defense system in 2019.

In March 2020, CEO of the Design Bureau of Special Machine-Building (part of Almaz-Antey defense manufacturer) Vladimir Dolbenkov said that the S-500 had entered final stages of trials.

“In the interests of air and missile defense troops, the enterprise’s specialists have developed equipment units for the Triumphant-M next-generation mobile anti-aircraft missile system. As part of this effort, they have developed and are completing the trials of units for the surface-to-air missile system: the launcher, the elements of the multi-functional locator and the missile defense locator, the equipped chassis for the combat control post and transporters for the long-range radar system,” he said.

The deputy defense minister said in December 2019 that the preliminary tests of the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system would begin in 2020 and the commencement of its serial deliveries to the troops was scheduled for 2025.

Even prior, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the deliveries of the latest S-500 surface-to-air missile systems to the troops would begin in 2020.

The developer, VKO Almaz-Antey, a Russian state-owned company, said that the S-500 is capable of destroying all types of ballistic missiles, including hypersonic ones. The S-500 missiles are also capable of “working outside the atmosphere where aerodynamic control is impossible.”

Russia has been training specialists to learn to operate the new system at the Military Academy of the Aerospace Force in Tver since 2017.

Zionism = EVIL

Americunt loser arseholes and their NATO arselickers will now start a propaganda campaign to discredit Russian superiority in aerospace technology.

tzatz

Says who?

Russia’s poisonings of innocents are a significant health risk for Russians …

The S-500 is a pile of junk ….

Scaathor

Fuck off, dumb cunt troll.

tzatz

Uki trolling.

Sauron

Interestingly not as secretive as its predecessor

Wizzy

Do you know how it looks like? We know nothing about this missile system besides the name

Damien C

Russia now has the best 3 Air Defence systems in the world S300 S400 and S500

The S500 will only be able to hit hypersonic missiles in LEO once they have entered earths atmosphere if they hold any maneuverability traits at all they are impossible to stop without a blanket barrage which really can’t be done

That said longer range more targets better tracking they make Russia impervious from most US air threats

tzatz

lol

Russia impervious? lol

JIMI JAMES

Assflogged,the jokes on you incest wonders,will blows fake x science fiction away too!

Tommy Jensen

We have our swarm techniques which dont have its equal in the world, plus we have secret technology also.
The S-500 is no problem for America because we control the Swift system also, and without Swift and a Mastercard you are lost already in the airport………………………….LOL!

FlorianGeyer

Airports have been a horrible experience since 9/11 and Covit has only served to make them even worse.

The greatest US ‘swarm’ threat have been the swarms of BLM dullards, and that threat is burning down as much of the US as they can.

May I suggest a BLM Slavecard be adopted in place of Mastercard?

Phoron

LLOL

cechas vodobenikov

insecure feminized tammy bragging again—unprofessional CIA girl

Tommy Jensen

Who would not feel insecure with Russia’s promotion of Tsar bombs directed to be dumped down in San Francisco and California, and new S-500 aimed to shoot our TV satelites down? Just asking.

FlorianGeyer

A full stop after ‘LEO’ would make your comment clearer for non English speakers, I would suggest.

johnny rotten

Who was that Yankee jerk who fooled around to abandon the ABM treaty? the most serious errors are those of presumption and are also the ones that cost more, here is that the bill has been brought back to the city of the swamp, a salty bill.

Tommy Jensen

Russia made secret dictatorship WMD under the carpet against all International treaties and all International usury rules.

Therefore we had to leave the treaties with Russia because we make our weapons against Russia’s aggression openly, transparent and in a free, civilised and democratic way to defend ourselves, and the Russians didnt do the same thing!

Therefore we do it because they didnt do it!

FlorianGeyer

LOL.
You should lay off the Oxycontin for a few weeks, Tommy. :)

Sorry, say again please…

Séamus Ó Néill

Where is this “free, civilised and democratic way”? Shall I ask the 79 sovereign nations that America has invaded since1945 to steal and pillage their natural resources ? Shall I ask all the genocided countries in the ME, especially Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Lebanon etc etc….In fact I could ask all the countries worldwide who live under the jackboot of 1000 American bases, America is not the most hated and detested country worldwide for its benevolent and compassionate behaviour !

Lone Ranger

The extreme long range variant missile of the S-400 can target and hit sats in low Earth orbit.
The difference is speed and range.
The S-500 is mainly against hypersonic gliders and orbital weapons platforms.
Its simply the best.

tzatz

Gushing with slavic pride … eh?

Lone Ranger

Im Hungarian.

tzatz

I’m Canadian …

There are many Ukraine Nanzis who were provided asylum in Canada, courtesy Operation Paperclip.

JIMI JAMES

Séamus Ó Néill

I can’t see anyone having much pride in America, they’ll be inventing the wheel there…..shortly.

tzatz

A ‘better’ wheel ….

Wizzy

Never seen a TEL for the S-500, wonder how it’ll look like

JIMI JAMES

Russia stocks up:

Wizzy

UAE just learnt the hard way that selling Palestinian lands for a couple F-35s was not the smartest move. With all due respect, my Arab brothers are so dumb. Did they really buy that b.s that they could make a deal with the Zionists? When will Arabs learn that America is not their friend?

Tommy Jensen

Well, they are not alone. Almost every country on each continent has been tricked into the same traps.

Tommy Jensen

A new threat against the United States and against innocent American civilians and children. These Sibirian tree huggers blood thirst have no boundary.

cechas vodobenikov

sadistic feminized savages r not innocent tammy

Raptar Driver

If I had control of Russia’s weapon systems I would face down NATO and the US and in every theater and watch the cowards back down. For they will. This would bring world peace, what is Putin waiting for?

Tommy Jensen

You dont understand the difference in size.
US/Nato Army is maybe 10 times bigger than Russia. China is only double as Russia. Talking spending.

Séamus Ó Néill

But when you’re fighting for your own country, your own family, your homeland ….things are completely different, you can overcome anything !

Jim Bim

You forget that Russia`s and China`s defense industry is 10 times more efficient than US/Nato.
Everything in the US is profit driven, and many want a piece of the cake before it is delivered with a slice left.

Raptar Driver

I do understand like Stalin said quantity has a quality all of it’s own.
However in this case I’m talking about backbone. The guts to initiate the guts to defense. They (NATO) has none of this they are simply a racket.

cechas vodobenikov

now the ignorant fascists barbarian gringos cry….”the American subconscious is manichean , dualist, barbaric”. Johan Galtung
“Amerika is the most warlike nation in the history of mankind”. Jimmy Carter
only 15% of amerikans believe torture is never justified; 66% fully support the use of torture—only exceeded in 1 African nation in the midst of a civil war (IPSOS/Reuters)
these uncivilized savages have been attacking weak defenseless peoples for 93% of their history—-

Thim Page

Good. The Muslims will appreciate having this weapon. At current rate, they will be a majority in Russia in 40 years. Maybe the Slavs can eek out a 700 version for Ahmed, before he takes over Russia.
