Belarus expects four S-300 missile systems

Belarus expects four S-300 air defense missile systems to be shipped from Russia, Maj. Gen. Igor Golub, a deputy commander of the Belarusian Air Force and Air Defense Forces, told journalists on Saturday 4th January.

Belarus has already received Tor-M2 systems from Russia as part of military-technological cooperation policy between the two countries and has concluded a contract for 4 Yakovlev Yak-130 aircraft. "Cooperation is continuing, and it is productive," Golub said.

  1. I would prefer S-400 over S-300. Because S-400 has double the range of S-300 and even the altitude it cruise. I read in this article that it can engage all types of aerial targets including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and ballistic and cruise missiles within the range of 400km, at an altitude of up to 30km. More over S-400 can simultaneously engage 36 targets where as S-300 engage only 12. Considering all the above S-400 is the clear winner, So it should be better for Egypt to go with S-400. The S-400 is two-times more effective than previous Russian air defence systems and can be deployed within five minutes.
