Russia’s Aerospace Force for the first time test-fired the latest S-350 'Vityaz' surface-to-air missile system on Tuesday, Eurasia Diary reports citing TASS.

"Specialists of air defense missile forces held the system’s initial firings at the proving ground in the Astrakhan Region," the ministry said, without specifying the period of holding the trials.

The first S-350 surface-to-air missile system will arrive at its permanent deployment site in the Leningrad Region in the immediate future, the ministry added.

The S-350 ‘Vityaz’ surface-to-air missile system has been developed by the Almaz-Antey defense manufacturer. The air defense system is capable of striking targets within a maximum radius of 60 km and at a maximum altitude of 30 km. The S-350 is designated to fight both aerodynamic and ballistic targets. An S-350 launcher carries 12 surface-to-air missiles.
