Air Defense System


The United States recalled the existence of a Prometheus that knocks down everything that flies the Russian C-500

Washington was reminded of how Russia can defend itself from a US strike.

A number of statements regarding a possible breakthrough of the Kaliningrad Oblast air defense and missile defense systems made Washington remind that Russia has a unique Prometheus C-500 anti-aircraft missile system, which not only has an incredibly long range, but is also capable of intercepting even hypersonic rockets.

“The politician recalled that more and more countries are choosing the Russian S-400 air defense systems because they are superior to their competitors. But the next generation is already approaching - the C-500, which will be able to intercept hypersonic aircraft and even space satellites. New systems will further strengthen the country's defense ”, - reports the Vesti edition.

Experts draw attention to the fact that today only a limited number of countries have air-based missiles that can be launched outside the zone of destruction of Russian air defense / missile defense systems, while most of them have only subsonic speed, which is not difficult for them knock down.

It should be clarified that in addition to the S-500, Russia also has other air defense and missile defense systems, in particular, it is the same S-400, S-350 air defense systems, Pantsir-S air defense systems, and Tor air defense systems and so forth
