    According to Russian Pacific Fleet's press service, second of five deliveries of S-400 (SA-21 Growler) missile defense systems has arrived to Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The second of five deliveries of S-400 (SA-21 Growler) missile defense systems has arrived to Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, the Russian Pacific Fleet's press service said Monday.

    "More than 670 tons of cargo, and that's 36 units of equipment for the S-400 missile defense system has arrived by sea to the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky," the press service said.

    This is the second of five shipments of the new missile defense systems that will be delivered to Kamchatka, according to the press service.

    The S-400 is a new-generation system of medium and long-range air defense missiles, capable of destroying all modern air weaponry, including tactical and strategic airplanes, ballistic missiles and hypersonic targets.
