Russia gets new Triumf anti-aircraft missile system

The scheduled phase of state testing of the Triumf anti-aircraft missile system has been successfully completed, RIA Novosti was told on Thursday at the Almaz research and production association /Russian agency for control systems/, which developed this new system of air defence belonging to a generation called "four plus." "The tests have confirmed that the Triumf features a higher rate of fire, longer range and the greater number of engaged targets," it was noted at Almaz. "In its technical characteristics and specifications the system is superior to the modernised American Patriot anti-aircraft missile system. Russia's Defence Ministry believes that as early as the end of this year the Triumf may be adopted for service with the country's air-defence forces." "The past phase of testing at Kapustin Yar range /Astrakhan region - Volga area/ served to check the accuracy of reaching the most remote targets. All of them were destroyed by direct hits," Almaz said.
