According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, the S-550 system will become the world’s first mobile specialized anti-missile and anti-space defense system. It will be built on the basis of the S-500 Prometheus.
According to military expert Alexei Leonkov, the S-550 will be able to “see” the entire range of modern targets, including stealth and hypersonic technology.
It is also noted that the capabilities of the S-550 to intercept warheads of ballistic missiles of various ranges and space attack weapons will be higher than that of the S-400, S-500 and even the American THAAD and Aegis systems with SM-3Block llB missiles.
When the Russian army will begin to receive the S-550, it is not yet clear.
