Commenting on a report of the electronic media that Russia stops manufacturing the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, Isaikin said, “The report is absolutely correct. Russia switches to the production of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system.” “The facilities of the Almaz-Antey will be modified to manufacture S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, as Russia no longer needs S-300 system,” he said.
“We have the arrangement with the Almaz-Antey for the manufacture of the modification of the S-300 system – Antey-2500 system. The deliveries of such systems have already been made. We also participate in the tender for the supply of this system to Turkey,” he said.
