    The creation of the S-350 prototype anti-aircraft missile system is nearing completion. This was announced on Saturday by the Commander of Russia’s anti-aircraft missile troops Sergey Babakov.

    "The prototype is now nearing completion, and preliminary tests will be conducted. I'm sure this system will go to the troops in a timely manner," said Babakov on RSN radio.

    The S-350E "Vityaz" is a self-propelled launcher, working in conjunction with an all-aspect radar with electronic scanning of space and a command post on the chassis of a special BAZ vehicle. The ammunition unit includes medium-range missiles used in the S-400 and short-range missiles. The new complex is designed to replace the S-300PS with missile type В55Р, as their lifetime ends in 2015.

    In July, the Commander of Russia’s anti-aircraft missile troops (AMT), air force Major-General Sergei Babakov said the "Vityaz" air defense missile systems will have high manoeuvrability and survivability. With this new system, he said, will have a "new missile fleet", which is "smaller but implements even more features than the S-300PS". The missile is more manoeuvrable, can fly above, below, and further," and will be "equipped with a homing head," said Babakov.
