The development of the S-550 was reported by the media in November. It will be the world’s first mobile specialized missile and anti-space defense system. It will be built on the basis of the S-500 Prometheus.
The Chinese authors have already written that the S-550 will surpass the US and Israeli missile defense systems “in one leap”. This complex will be able to intercept various ballistic missiles outside the atmosphere, including intercontinental ones. The S-550 will even be able to intercept the American X-37B orbital fighter.
It is noted that this complex will be unique. Currently existing missile defense systems are stationary. Russia will overcome its lag behind others.
