    Russia could start delivering S-400 missile defense systems to China by the end of 2016, a high-ranking military source said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — S-400 is by far Russia's most advanced surface-to-air missile system that has a range of 248 miles and is capable of tracking and destroying all existing aerial targets, including ballistic and cruise missiles.

    "Approximately at the end of the year," the source told RIA Novosti, asked when Russia plans to begin delivering S-400s to China.
