    Six S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems will be delivered to Russian Aerospace Forces in 2016.

    NOVOSIBIRSK (Sputnik) — Russian Aerospace Forces will receive six S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems in 2016, Aerospace Forces Commander Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said Sunday.

    "The industry is reaching its full capacity, so this year we will receive six S-400, and next year, we won't slow down the pace as well," Bondarev said.

    Bondarev stressed that S-400 Triumph is characterized by high reliability and quality.

    The S-400 Triumph is an air defense missile system, which integrates a multifunction radar, autonomous detection and targeting systems, anti-aircraft missile systems, launchers, and command and control center. It is capable of firing three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at short-to-extremely long range.
