TSAMTO, February 24. In the training center of anti-aircraft missile troops of the Military Academy ASD them. Zhukov carried out work on the development of the teaching staff of s-350 "Vityaz" and the preparation of educational material resources to the training of military specialists.
The first set of the latest S-350 air defense system was delivered to the training center in early 2020, where the personnel of the units that will undergo planned rearmament will be retrained.

In addition, it is planned to re-equip the first anti-aircraft missile regiment with the latest S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system.
The S-350 Vityaz is the latest mobile, multi-channel medium-range anti-aircraft missile system developed by the Almaz-Antey Concern for the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces. The system is designed to protect the most important state, administrative, industrial, military facilities and groups of troops from the attacks of modern and promising means of air attack of a likely enemy, according to the Information Support Group of the Aerospace Forces.
