 Russia says S-500 air defense system can destroy near space weapons


He said that with its technical and tactical performance, the S-500 can be classified as the first generation of space defense system, because in the future it will be able to destroy space weapons and low earth orbit satellites.

In addition to aerodynamic and ballistic targets, the S-500 can also destroy various hypersonic weapons, including near space weapons. The system is unique, he said.

At the end of December 2019, Alexey Krivoruchko, Deputy Minister of defense of Russia, announced that the S-500 air defense system would be tested from 2020, and the first batch of mass production system was planned to be delivered in 2025.

According to the report, the S-500 Prometheus is used to counter medium range ballistic missiles. It can also destroy hypersonic missiles at speeds of up to seven kilometers per second. In October last year, it was reported that the S-500s complete equipment also included combat command vehicles equipped with automatic command systems and radar detection systems.
