UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems possess the technologies and capabilities that make them a “deadly weapon,” Western media write.
Russia sells and uses the S-400 in order to gain leverage and threaten opponents, writes National Interest.
Interest in Russian complexes forces the United States to impose sanctions on countries for the purchase of such systems.
The authors of the article are sure that the capabilities of the S-400 are “twice as superior” as the capabilities of the previous systems. The S-400 has more sensitive radars that can fix almost any target in the air.
Another strength of the complex is its flexibility in application. On it you can install four types of different missiles, which vary in weight and capabilities.
This variability allows you to create a multi-level air defense. Another important advantage of the air defense system is the increased firing range, the complex is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 400 kilometers.
The newspaper VZGLYAD talked about disputes in the United States over whether sanctions should be imposed against Turkey over the S-400.
