Air defense Antey-4000


The newest Russian air defense system received a hypersonic missile, flying at a speed of almost 8 MAX

The newest Russian anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense complex, received a heavy anti-aircraft missile.

The Russian military officially presented their newest anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense system with light and heavy anti-aircraft missiles at an international exhibition. Lightweight, as found out, is designed to destroy aerodynamic and ballistic targets at distances of up to 150 kilometers at a maximum target speed of 5 MAX, while a heavy interceptor missile is capable of developing hypersonic speed and hitting targets at a distance of up to 340 kilometers with a maximum speed of a moving target of 7,6 MAX.

We are talking about the Antey-4000 complex, which perfectly complements the S-300 Favorit and S-400 Triumph air defense systems family, in fact, being the latter's "younger brother", but having a much lower cost and being invulnerable to US sanctions.

Earlier there was information that the Antey-4000 complexes could be tested in Syria, while it was the systems of the complex that were tested, the ability to detect missiles and aircraft, although there is no official confirmation of this.
