The Russian military has delivered new units of its state-of-the-art S-400 anti-aircraft systems to Syria. The weapons have assumed combat duty in Russian army compounds in the country.

The S-400 is the latest generation of Russian mobile anti-aircraft systems currently in service. It is designed to engage aerodynamic targets and ballistic missiles.

  1. It is uncertain when these filmed events occurred. The first shipborne load was definitely before mid December 2017 as that was the last time that ship docked there. The air transported units at Hmeimim look to be last summer.

    It could be that they have just used stock footage to show the arrival of a new system.
