Kornukov said a new S-400 system, Triumf, had been tested successfully. I think regular launches of long-range missiles will be conducted before March 8, he added. The Triumf anti-aircraft missile system is ready for serial production, according to the ex-commander of air force.

The Triumf system has a range of 400km. It can be used both against high-flying strategic and ballistic missiles and against cruise missiles like the Tomahawk, which fly low and are effective against targets in woodland and rugged terrains.

The new system is capable of detecting and destroying early-warning aircraft and tactical and strategic aircraft. It can also intercept warheads flying at a speed of 4,800 km per hour.
