S-400 Triumf / Θρίαμβος


S-400 Triumf


The S-400 Triumf (Russian: C-400 «Триумф») is a new generation air defense system developed primarily by the Almaz Central Design Bureau as an upgrade of the S-300 family.

The S-400's NATO reporting name is SA-21 Growler, and the system was previously known as S-300PMU-3. It overshadows the capabilities of the other systems from the S-300 series, and its range is claimed to be at least two times the MIM-104 Patriot system's.[2][3]

According to Russian sources, the S-400 is capable of detecting and simultaneously engaging six targets[4] out to a range of 400 km (250 miles), including aircraft, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles up to the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty limits of a range of 3,500 km and a speed of 4.8 km/s[1].Furthermore, it is claimed to have heightened capabilities to counter stealth aircraft.[5][6][7] The S-400 is expected to be superseded by the future S-500 missile, with development expected to be completed by 2012.
