    Russia will start exports of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems to China no earlier than 2017, a source in the defense industry told RIA Novosti on the condition of anonymity.
    “An export version of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile will have been developed by 2017 with the Chinese to be the first clients,” the source said.
    Russia currently has four S-400 regiments - two in the Moscow region, one in the Baltic Fleet and one in the Eastern Military District.
    By 2020, Russia is to have 28 S-400 regiments, each comprised of two battalions, mainly in maritime and border areas.
    In early June, Russian Defense Ministry said there were no plans to export the S-400, which will be produced only for the Russian Armed Forces.
    The S-400 Triumph, which succeeds the Soviet-era S-300, is a medium- to long-range surface-to-air missile system that can effectively engage any aerial target, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and cruise and ballistic missiles at up to 400 kilometers and an altitude of up to 30 kilometers.

    China require AD systems as it is critical to its defence profile.

    It never surprises me that Indians were ripped off by Russian over the second-hand AC deal, they are just so naive

    Sell them to someone else with price doubled will be the better option for Russia.

    from what i know Yakont isn't a super cruise missile like the brahmos.the reality is that the chinis don't have anything in their arsenal which can even come close to the brahmos and i don't think they will get their hands on the brahmos in the near future without India's permission!
