The Russian media reported on the latest missile air defense system S-500 Prometheus development. The system is a product of the developed Almaz-Antey Air-and-Space Concern.

The producer is to start the S-500 batch production to be delivered for the Russian Armed Forces within the deadlines established under the state defense order, the company’s CEO, Yan Novikov, has announced in connection with the company 20th anniversary.

Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov said on September 16, 2021, that the S-500 would begin to be supplied to the armed forces upon completion of government certification tests. Earlier, in July 2021 the Defense Ministry said that the S-500 had carried out test combat launches at the Kapustin Yar proving ground. The expected tactical and technical parameters were confirmed.

The S-500 was designed to hit all existing and future aerospace attack weapons within a wide range of altitudes and speeds. It is to replace its predecessor S-400 Triumf.

The 100% state-owned Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Corporation is a group of several dozen enterprises (plants and design bureaus) on the aerospace and antimissile defense weapons and other products. The Concern facilities have been spread over Russia with the headquarter in Moscow. The Concern’s products are in service in Russia and more than 50 other countries.
