The advanced S-500 surface-to-air missile/anti-ballistic missile systems and S-350 medium-range surface-to-air missile systems will enter service with the Russian armed forces soon, the commandant of the Zhukov Air-Space Academy, Lieutenant General Vladimir Lyaporov, said in an interview published by the Krasnaya Zvezda daily on Friday.

In 2019, the first group of officers will complete a training course to use S-500, a long-range system that will form the backbone of Russia’s integrated air defense and missile defense system.

“I would like to note that in 2019, the first group of officers will complete the academy’s course to use the S-500 systems. The systems are yet to enter service, but we expect them to do so in the near future,” he said.

“In the end of the year, the center is expected to receive first S-350 Vityaz systems,” the general added.

Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the delivery of S-500 systems to Russian troops will begin in 2020.

Depending on the type of missiles it is equipped with, the system will be able to shoot down both air-breathing targets, such as planes and drones, and ballistic missiles.

According to earlier Western media reports, Russia’s advanced system hit a target a distance of 481.2 km, exceeding the previous record by 80 km.

S-350 Vityaz is designed to defend important administrative and military facilities from airstrikes.

It operates automatically and the team deploys and controls the weapon. S-350 includes command post 50K6E, multifunctional radars 50N6E and launchers 50P6E with 12 9M96E2 missiles each.

It can simultaneously fire at 16 air or 12 ballistic targets. The maximum range is 60 km and 30 km in altitude. The deployment time is five minutes. The crew comprises three men.

No S-500 export before S-600 is about to be introduced.
Israeli Arrow-3 ranges 2,400km BTW. And IDF bought the spraying containers Yanks considered to use in Afgha…

… to spray nuclear wastes on Talibans… These can be loaded in C-130…
The idea is to create “no go zones” : you cross inside it, you get roasted by radioactivity 😉

The ErDOG should better go back to the dog-house or we may consider he caught rabies and so euthanasia will be the only way.

The 77N6 missile is supposed to range 600km. It’s the 1st Russian SAM with inert kinetic interceptor. It’s more oriented at going after /IRBM/ICBMs, just like the upcoming A-235

altitude of target can be as high as 180-200km. From what I can gather, it will simply “slave” the S-400/S-300 launchers adding the 77P6 launcher with 77N6 to the ‘family’

There are already systems with way more range in the west : Aegis’ SM-3 (Standard Missile) block IA/B ranges 900km while block IIA ranges 2,500km.
A land version has been created on Japan’s request.

Aegis having been initially created for US-Navy’s ships. Rafael’s Arrow-3 ranges 2,400km. GMD is silo-launched and said ranging 3,700-5,000km.

S-350 Vityaz 9M96E2 ranges 120km, 9M96E ranging 60km and 9M100 ranging 10km. 9M96 is already in use w. S-300 and S-400, 4 cannisters being stacked and fit between the 2x 40N6E’s cannisters or replacing one of the 4x 48N6 on the 4x48N6 TEL

Hihi, S-350 is what we call “Repackaging”

In fact, Buk-M3 goes to the Army while S-300/350/400/500 are the air-force thing.

Note you can fit 4x 9M100 instead of a 9M96, 9M100 being a small short range IR-guided missile.
