Combat firing of the S-500 antiballistic complex.
Polygon Kapustin Yar.
The main task of the complex is to combat the combat equipment of medium-range ballistic missiles: it is independently possible to intercept IRBMs with a launch range of up to 3500 km, and, if necessary, intercontinental ballistic missiles in the final section of the trajectory, and, within certain limits, in the middle section. These weapons should provide cover for individual regions, large cities, industrial facilities and priority strategic targets.
Also among the tasks of the anti-aircraft complex are the destruction of hypersonic cruise missiles, aircraft and UAVs, both conventional high-altitude and hypersonic missiles with a speed of 5 M and above; destruction of low-orbit satellites and space weapons launched from hypersonic aircraft, strike hypersonic UAVs and orbital platforms.
