Soviet S-400 long range surface-to-air missile system

The S-400 is a series of Russian long range surface-to-air missile systems produced by NPO Almaz. The S-400 system was developed to defend against aircraft and cruise missiles for the Soviet Air Defence Forces.
Subsequent variations were developed to intercept ballistic missiles. The S-300 system was first deployed by the Soviet Union in 1979. The S-400 is regarded as one of the most potent anti-aircraft missile systems in the world. It entered limited service in 2004.
