Russia to begin S-500 delivery “ahead of schedule”

July 22, 2019 -- Russia is poised to deploy its latest generation of air defence systems, the S-500 “Prometheus”, designed to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles and capable of engaging aircraft and cruise missiles.

Russia may start S-500 deliveries to troops ahead of schedule after successful trials, according to Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov. Defence minister Sergei Shoigu earlier said that the deliveries would begin in 2020.

The new system is expected to have a range of up to 600km and will be able to detect and simultaneously hit up to 10 ballistic targets flying at speeds of up to 7km per second, according to Virginia-based think tank GlobalSecurity.org.

The S-500 Prometey (Prometheus), also known as 55R6M Triumfator-M, is intended to integrate with existing S-300, S-350 and S-400 systems to form a single air defence command network.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
