    The S-500 surface-to-air missile (SAM) system will enter service with the Russian Aerospace Force (RusAF) in the near future, according to Air Defense Force Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Victor Gumyonny dual-hatted as RusAF deputy commander-in-chief.

    "The Air Defense Force is transitioning en masse to the Pantsir-S1 [NATO reporting name: SA-22 Greyhound] and S-400 [SA-21 Growler] advanced SAM systems that are known well both in Russia and abroad. Soon, we expect the service entry of the S-350 Vityaz and S-500 SAM systems and a number of sophisticated radars as well," Gumyonny said.

    "Military hardware is being developed. Defense contractors and we do not stand still. The advanced S-500 system is being developed at an accelerated pace and will be delivered to the Air Defense Force in the imminent future," he added.

    As Head of the Zhukov Air and Space Defense Academy Lieutenant-General Vladimir Lyaporov said earlier, servicemen have started undergoing training to learn to operate the S-500 system.

    The S-500 "Prometheus" (Russian name 55R6M Triumfator-M) is the latest generation of Russian-made surface-to-air defense missile system, currently under development by the Russian Defense Company Almaz-Antey company.

    According to Russian sources, the S-500 is an advanced version of S-400 with dedicated components designed to intercept ballistic missiles at a height of up to 200 km.

    The S-500 is expected to have an extended range of up to 600 km (over 370 miles) and simultaneously engage up to 10 targets. The system will be capable of destroying hypersonic and ballistic targets. The S-500’s interceptors will operate at an altitude higher than 185km. The system will have a response time of about three to four seconds, which is considerably shorter than the S-400 which is rated at nine to ten seconds. It also has an extended radar range compared to S-400.

    Really looking forward to ita success. Will be great news if india get its hand on these. May be thats why india accepted delayed delivery so that some of the feature can be adapted and we can later integrate s500 too.

    Italian don't have any equivalent to S-400/500 . Pakistan have to wait for Chinese clone.

    Two missiles that are going to be equipped on the S-500 will also be equipped with the S-400.

    If its in any way based on the S-400 then its useless, they couldn't even detect those Tomahawk cruise/target missiles, let alone shoot them down.

    Sure, just like the S-400 intercepted the Tomahawks launched on Shayrat Airbase. :big_boss:

    S-500 is designed for intercept ballistic missile just as Standard 6,whilst S-400 is used to shoot planes and cruise missile and short range missile. They are different systems which work together.
    There is a similar combination in China inventory, which is HQ-9 and HQ-19.The former is used against the vehicle inner atmosphere, and the later aims at ballistic missile and satellite which is out of atmosphere.

    so after the s400 failed against 50 odd tomahawks :omghaha::omghaha::omghaha: russians quickly come out with s500 plans. ahahah

    Pakistani posters also note babur is basically a copy of tomahawk so we were very interested in seeing the s400 fail in syria.

    Dude, let's be honest.
    59 cruise missiles have been launched. It is a saturation attack which is too hard to defence for any single system even Patriot III.
    The fight height of cruise missile is very low and it couldn't be detected in a long distance by ground radar no matter how sophisticated it is because of earth curvature, which give air defense system a very short time to react.
    Only the AWACs could detect the vehicles flying at a low height in a long distance. It seems Russia did not deploy any AWAC in Syria.
    So it is unfair to question S-400’s capability just based on this attack, given to the numbers of Tomahawk and S-400 system.

    S-500 is not a replacement of S-400.
    They are applied against different types of targets.
