    Anti-aircraft defense in Kamchatka will be reinforced with new S-400 Triumf systems, the Ministry of Defense said Friday.

    MOSCOW, June 20 (RIA Novosti) – Anti-aircraft defense in Kamchatka will be reinforced with new S-400 Triumf systems, the Ministry of Defense said Friday.

    “They acquired new military hardware there – air defense missile system S-400, which in the near future will be delivered to the anti-aircraft division in northeast Russia,” Pacific Fleet spokesman Roman Martov said.

    Several months ago combat units from the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky air defense missile division underwent successful training at the Air Force Training center in Gatchina, Leningrad Region.

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