    Large scale model of new Russian S-500 «Prometheus» mobile air and space defense complex go on display.

    The S-500 is a new long-range anti-aircraft and anti-ballistic missile system is expected to enter service 2016 but of it design have been largely kept secret.

    According to member of the advisory council of the Military-Industrial Commission Viktor Murakhovsky, the technical characteristics of the S-500 complex undergoing final tests will be second to none.

    Open sources say the S-500 will be capable of simultaneously engaging up to 10 targets traveling at speeds of up to seven kilometers per second, which is an approximate speed of intercontinental ballistic missile nuclear warheads entering the atmosphere. The killing range of the complex is reported to be 600 kilometers, while the altitude of a target engaged could be near 180-200 kilometers.

    S400 is viable enough option for next 5 decades at least. Unless you're having a super power threat/ long range strategic bombers... I don't think you need to advance this field any further.
