    Russia may fulfill a contract on deliveries of long-range S-400 Triumf air defense systems to China by 2020, Alexander Fomin, director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, said Monday.

    STRELNA (Russia), (Sputnik) — Moscow and Beijing reportedly signed the contract on the delivery of up to six S-400 systems (NATO reporting name SA-21 Growler) to China in April last year. The details of the deal have not been disclosed.

    The S-400 is Russia's next-generation air defense system, carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at short-to-extremely long range. It is capable of tracking and destroying all existing aerial targets, including ballistics and cruise missiles.
