    Russian air defense specialists will boost their mastery with cutting edge simulators.

    Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces will receive modern simulators in 2015, the Defense Ministry's press service announced on Sunday.

    Air defense crewmen will be able to master their skills with new simulator of the Pantsir S-1 gun-missile system. The Pantsir S-1 combines a wheeled vehicle mounting a fire-control radar and electro-optical sensor, two 30-mm cannons and up to 12 57E6 radio-command guided short-range missiles. It is designed to take on a variety of targets flying at low altitudes, as well ground and water-surface threats.

    The defenders of the sky will also get S-400 training systems. The S-400 Triumph are long- to medium-range surface-to-air missile systems. They can engage any aerial target, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and cruise and ballistic missiles at a distance of up to 400 kilometers (250 miles) and an altitude of up to 30 kilometers (18.6 miles).

    Nebo-UM and 'Test' simulators will help air defense crewmen rehearse radiolocation. The Nebo-UM complex can analyze data on hypersonic targets in difficult weather conditions and transfer this information to anti-missile defense systems.
