Russia has delivered the first regimental set of S-400 Triumf advanced interceptor-based Air Defense Systems (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) to China under a 2014 government-to-government contract, an unnamed Russian official told TASS news agency on April 3.

“Two vessels have delivered the first regimental set of S-400s from the port of Ust-Lug, Leningrad Region, to China within the time limit established by the contract,” the source said. “It includes a command post, radar stations, launching stations, energy equipment [sic] and other property.”

Additionally, the source noted that part of the S-400 equipment destined for China has been damaged during transport and returned to Russia: “The work continues, and the missing equipment is expected to be delivered to the customer in the summer.”

Following the announcement in early April of the arrival in China of two vessels carrying S-400-related equipment, a third and final ship recently arrived in the country, an unnamed military diplomatic source told TASS.

The third vessel brought additional equipment as well as system parts that were repaired in Russia after being damaged in a storm in the English Channel during shipment.

During the tests, the S-400 air defense system was used under jamming conditions to validate the performance capabilities of the missile against electronic warfare methods.

China and Russia concluded a deal for the procurement of four to six S-400 units in November 2014, making Chinese armed forces the first foreign customer of the Russian-made S-400. The first regiment of S-400 was delivered to China in May 2018.

The system’s radars of S-400 can detect aerial targets at a distance of up to 600 kilometers.
