Prometheus gives a fire. Confirmed the start of testing of the S-500 SAM
The Interfax news agency publishes material confirming the testing of the Prometei S-500 advanced anti-aircraft missile system. Information is published with reference to an informed source. More specific data on the source are not presented.
Preliminary tests are really underway.
Recall that earlier in the American press there were articles that in Russia began to test the S-500 air defense system. At the same time, it was specially noted that the range of target destruction for this complex is a record. It was noted that the missile of an anti-aircraft missile complex destroyed an air target from a distance of 480 km.
The parameters of the S-500 "Prometheus" are such that the SAM can shoot down almost any aircraft and missiles, including promising ones. It is also worth noting that the S-500 is also being discussed as an anti-satellite weapon.
The day before, information appeared that planned tests of the newest long-range 40H6E missile for the S-400 Triumph missile were completed at the Kapustin Yar test site. According to some information, on the basis of this particular missile, the combat equipment of the S-500 air defense system is being created. 40N6E is a solid-fuel two-stage missile from Russian manufacturers, capable of hitting targets at a distance that remains unattainable for any foreign air defense system.
Russia conducted the world's longest surface-to-air missile test and successfully struck a target 299 miles (481 km) away
