At MAKS 2013, the International Aviation and Space Salon in Moscow, the Russian Company Almaz-Antey presents for the first time to the public, its new S-350E medium-range air defense missile system. The new missile system S-350E is designed to protect objects from the massive strikes of current and future air threats, including those made by "stealth" technology, as well as tactical and operational-tactical ballistic missiles.
Reportedly, the main novelty from Almaz-Antey will be a promising anti-missile medium-range system S-350E, also known as Vityaz. According to the stated performance characteristics, it is superior to foreign counterparts and should replace a number of S-300 technological systems of obsolete Soviet-made modifications, as well as Buk anti-aircraft missile systems, partially. In June of this year, the system was demonstrated to Russian President Vladimir Putin during his visit to the Obukhov factory in St. Petersburg.
In addition, the S-350E has high mobility and survivability. It takes only five minutes to bring the system on alert.
