Russia’s S-500 Prometheus mobile air and space defense complex will be displayed at International military-technical forum Army-2016 in September, the Defence Blog information website reported on Wednesday.

Earlier, open sources told RT that “the S-500 will be capable of simultaneously engaging up to 10 targets traveling at speeds of up to seven kilometers per second, which is an approximate speed of intercontinental ballistic missile nuclear warheads entering the atmosphere. The killing range of the complex is reported to be 600 kilometers, while the altitude of a target engaged could be near 180-200 kilometers.”

The Russian Aerospace Forces is allegedly planning to order five S-500 complexes up to the year 2020 and integrate them into the A-135 (and successive A-235) Moscow air defense system.

International military-technical forum Army-2016 will be held on the basis of Patriot Congress and Exhibition Centre of the military-patriotic recreation park of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Kubinka, Moscow region, on September 6-11.
