Watch: Russia test fires new air missile system S-500

Jul 20, 2021 18:07 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Russia's military held a test shooting of a new air missile system on Tuesday.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the S-500 system successfully hit a fast-moving ballistic target.

After completing a full cycle of tests this year, the air missile system will be deployed at an Air Defense unit in Moscow region.

The Ministry said in the statement that the S-500 will be "capable of hitting any existing means of air-space offensive at any range and speed."

The declared shooting range of the missile system is 600 km.

The Kremlin has made modernising the country's arsenals a top priority amid the tensions with the West that followed Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.
