    Russia's new generation S-500 air defense system will resolve the country's missile defense problems when it enters service, Air Force Commander Colonel General Alexander Zelin said on Tuesday.

    "The S-500 air defense system is a system that will solve Russia's missile defense problems," Zelin said.

    Answering a question about the S-500's technical specifications, Zelin said: "I would not compare the S-500 with the U.S. missile defense since they have different technical characteristics".

    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.

    He also added that two S-400 long-range missile defense systems would be delivered to the Far East by the end of 2010.

    "We are planning to put two S-400s on combat duty at the Vostok strategic command," Zelin said
