A new regimental set of air defense missile systems S-400 will enter operational near Moscow soon.

"At the Kapustin Yar proving ground in the Astrakhan Region specialists of Russia’s Aerospace Force have started accepting a new regimental set of the air defense missile system S-400 Triumph. After live firing practice the new regimental set of S-400 systems will be delivered by train to an air defense missile regiment near Moscow," the report runs.

The task of the mentioned air defense regiment, just like that of several others stationed near Moscow is to maintain the air defense of Moscow and the central industrial district, protect the highest-level government and military control facilities, industrial and power plants, army groups and transport links from aerospace attacks by a hypothetical enemy.

Earlier, the Almaz-Antey concern in 2016 handed over to the Defense Ministry five regimental sets of the S-400 system Triumf. Military specialists accepted the previous batch of S-400 on November 3.
