Russia to Present S-500 Missile System for Export by 2030, State Arms Exporter Says

Russia plans to present its prospective S-500 Prometey surface-to-air missile/anti-ballistic missile system on the international arms market by 2030, Alexander Mikheev, the head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, told Sputnik on 24 August.

The first S-500 deliveries to the Russian Armed Forces are scheduled for the end of the year.

“We plan to introduce the S-500 air defence missile system on the global market by 2030”, Mikheev said at the Army-2021 military forum.
The S-500 Prometey is a next-generation surface-to-air missile system with a range of around 600 kilometres (370 miles), designed for intercepting and destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well as hypersonic cruise missiles and aircraft.
